6 Overlooked Remedies for Lower Back Pain Relief


Traditional medical approaches will usually focus on addressing the anatomical problems in your lower back, but for many people more of a multifaceted approach will do a better job at keeping the pain at bay.

The following list—compiled from our readers and from the doctors who write for this site—includes remedies that are often overlooked or underemphasized in the traditional medical model:

1. Release your inner endorphins

Endorphins are hormones made naturally in your body. What most people don't know is that they can be just as strong as any manufactured pain medication. When endorphins are released in your body, they help block pain signals from registering with your brain. Endorphins also help alleviate anxiety, stress, and depression, which are all associated with chronic back pain and often make the pain worse.

Try the following activities to release these feel-good messengers:

    Aerobic exercise
    Massage therapy
    Meditation

2. Get enough restorative sleep
Pain is a leading cause of insomnia—difficulty with falling asleep and/or staying asleep. Approximately two-thirds of people with chronic back pain suffer from some type of sleep disorder. Paradoxically, inadequate sleep can make your back pain worse. This vicious cycle makes it ineffective to treat just the pain. If you have sleep problems, you need to get the sleep problems addressed too.
There are many options for treating sleep problems that accompany chronic lower back pain—see Chronic Pain and Insomnia: Breaking the Cycle.

3. Exercise your core
The muscles in your abs and back play a critical role in supporting your lower spine. These muscles don't get a good workout during the course of a normal day—they need to be specifically targeted through exercise.
There are many simple exercises that can be performed in 20 to 30 minutes as part of your daily routine. If you are just starting out, even a simple act of sitting upright on an exercise ball for 30 minutes a day will engage your core muscles.

4. Soothe the pain with cold and/or hot

Don't underestimate the pain reduction of simply applying cold packs and/or hot packs to help reduce your lower back pain and spur the healing process.

    Cold therapy
    Cold application has two primary benefits:
        It reduces inflammation, which is usually a culprit in any type of back pain.
        It acts as a local anesthetic by slowing down nerve impulses, which keeps the nerves from spasming and causing pain.
Heat therapy
Heat application has two primary benefits:

    It stimulates blood flow, which brings healing nutrients to the affected area of the low back.
    It inhibits the pain messages being sent to the brain.

Heat can come in many forms, and it's best to try several to find what works best for you. Taking a hot bath or shower, soaking in a hot tub, or using a heating pad, hot water bottle, or heat wrap that provides continuous, low-level heat are all ways to bring healing warmth to your lower back.

5. Stretch your hamstrings twice daily

One often overlooked contributor to lower back pain is tight hamstrings. If your hamstring muscles—located in the back of your thighs—are too tight hamstrings your lower back and sacroiliac joints will be stressed, leading to more pain. Hamstring stretching should be done carefully and at least twice per day.

There are many gentle stretching exercises that should not hurt.

6. Engage your brain

Pain specialists have long understood that pain is not absolute; it is more complicated than just a sensation. The way your brain interprets and processes pain signals plays an important role in how you perceive your pain.
The good news is that you can develop skills for your brain to reduce or ignore the pain signals. Developing expertise in these skills can go a long way to help you have some degree of influence over your pain.

Bonus Tip: Find activities that make you happy

Ongoing pain can wreak havoc on your life, affecting your cherished relationships, finances, and your ability to get stuff done at work and at home. It can also interrupt your sleep and affect your mood. Because many other problems commonly occur along with chronic lower back pain, anything you can do for yourself that is a natural anti-depressant will help.
Some people find that even doing just 3 things that make them feel good each day, such as enjoying a comforting cup of tea or coffee, calling an old friend, walking the dog, or receiving a longish 30-second hug from a loved one can make pain more tolerable.

Even if you are in severe pain and are undergoing extensive medical treatments, we encourage you to still try to remember the simple things you can do for yourself to help heal and get stronger and healthier over time.

Why everything you know about cancer is wrong

 Many people think that cancer is caused by DNA damage and that not even nature can cure cancer. Both of these assumptions are pure nonsense. Most likely everything you know about cancer was intentionally designed to deceive you so that cancer patients will choose the wrong cancer treatments.

Why would someone spread false information about cancer? That is what this article is about.

Let us start with a three-question test:

    What causes a cell to be cancerous?
    What is the 5-year “cure rate” of orthodox medicine, meaning what percent of their cancer patients are alive five years after diagnosis?
    What is the 5-year “cure rate” of several of the best-known natural cancer treatment experts?
Most people think that cancer is caused by DNA damage and that orthodox medicine is frantically searching for a cure for cancer.

There are two problems with these beliefs. Both beliefs are complete nonsense and come from the propaganda and deceptions of television.

Cancer is not caused by DNA damage. The definition of a cancer cell is a cell with low ATP energy (i.e. a low level of adenosine triphosphate). It is difficult to imagine a cell biologist who is so stupid they think that DNA damage can cause low levels of ATP energy. Only a very, very small fraction of DNA has anything to do with the creation of ATP energy.

Yet the media glorifies all of the “cancer researchers” who are diligently trying to “fix” the DNA damage of cancer cells. It is all a scam to make sure that cures for cancer are never found.

The truth is that there are many people who know how to cure cancer. They just don’t work for the pharmaceutical industry and you don’t hear about them in the media and they don’t win Nobel Prizes.

The low ATP level is actually caused by microbes which are inside the cancer cells, generally Helicobacter Pylori. This is an amazing microbe which can have 16 different sizes and shapes and sizes depending on the pH it is exposed to.

    Advanced Cancer Theory

This microbe intercepts glucose as it enters the cancer cells and thus reduces the amount of glucose available to be converted into pyruvate. With less pyruvate, the cell will create less ATP energy (or course I am skipping many steps in this process). For a more detailed discussion read What Causes Cancer.

The ICRF has developed more than 20 cancer treatments which revert the cancer cells into normal cells. How do they revert cancer cells into normal cells? They safely target and kill the microbes inside the cancer cells.

Killing cancer cells is “old school” but there is nothing wrong with things that can safely target and kill cancer cells (such as purple grape juice), but the new approach is to kill the microbes inside the cancer cells. This was first done in the 1930s but that technology was persecuted and shut down by the FDA and AMA. It has been restored, however, by the High RF Frequency Devices (which are not their real name, which we cannot use on this website due to the FDA).
About cure rates

You probably think that orthodox medicine (e.g. the pharmaceutical industry, oncologists, the American Medical Association or AMA, etc.) has a 5-year cure rate for cancer patients of more than 50 percent. A “5-year cure rate” would mean, by definition, that 50 percent or more of their cancer patients are still alive five years after being diagnosed with cancer.

You probably think that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is not only doing its best to find cures for cancer but are shutting down “quacks” who are pretending to cure cancer but in fact do not know how to cure cancer.

You probably think that the media is constantly looking for who has the best cure rates for cancer so the media’s investigative journalists can keep the general public apprised of who has the most effective cancer treatments.

And so on.

Are your assumptions correct? NO.

Cure rates are not an academic issue because you, the reader, may get cancer some day or you may know someone who gets cancer, such as a spouse or relative. Your very life, or the life of a friend of loved-one, may be on the line as you decide who is telling the truth about cancer research.

Choosing a cancer treatment is literally a life-and-death decision. The “cure rates” for different cancer treatments can range from 3 to 95 percent for the same type of cancer. So who is telling the truth and who is lying? And if they are lying, why are they lying?

So let’s talk about cure rates.

First, what is the overall 5-year cure rate of the oncology profession according to their own statistics?

Second, what was the cure rate of a South African immigrant who used nothing but purple grape juice to treat cancer?

Before reading on, take a guess at the answers to both of these questions and write your answers down to see how you did.

According to Dr. Jonathon Stegall, the answer to the first question  is this:

“A 2004 study in the journal Clinical Oncology evaluated the contribution of chemotherapy to 5-year survival rates among adult cancer patients. In other words, the goal of the study was to look at how significant chemotherapy’s role was in successful treatment outcomes (defined by oncologists as 5-year survival). In order to arrive at a meaningful conclusion, data from many previous studies was pooled and analyzed. The 22 most common cancer types were included in the study.

“The results were surprising. The overall contribution of chemotherapy to five-year survival in American adults was 2.1 percent. This means that approximately 98 percent of the credit for survival was attributed to all other treatments, such as surgery, radiation, nutrition, etc.

“It is important to note that this study is often misquoted. You have probably heard this statistic quoted in a way which suggests that those receiving chemotherapy only have a 2.1 percent 5-year survival rate.

“In reality, the average five-year survival rate for cancer is 69 percent. This includes all stages of cancer and makes no distinction between who received which treatments. However, given the most commonly used treatments in oncology today, it is safe to assume that many of these surviving patients received chemotherapy.

“At this point, it is important to discuss what 5-year survival means. In the oncology world, 5-year survival measures the percentage of patients who are still alive five years from the date of diagnosis. It does not mean that they are cancer-free, and it does not mean that they are completely healthy. Instead, it simply means that they have not died from cancer (or any other cause) in the five years since diagnosis.

“Survival rates can be further broken down. For example, cancer-specific survival looks at the percentage of patients with a particular type of cancer and can be further broken down to look at survival rates for each stage of cancer. Using the 5-year survival statistic with respect to breast cancer, we see that Stage 0 or Stage I breast cancer has a 5-year survival rate of nearly 100 percent.

“For Stage II breast cancer, the five-year survival rate is 93 percent, while for Stage III breast cancer, the 5-year survival rate is 72 percent.

“Stage IV breast cancer has a 5-year survival rate of approximately 22 percent. Thus, when we look at survival rates for cancer, it is important to be as specific as possible with regard to cancer type and cancer stage since some cancers have very poor survival rates while others have very good ones.

“I always tell my patients that it is important to look at survival statistics on the population level in order to know what we are dealing with, but it is equally important to realize that those statistics do not necessarily apply to them. Many factors contribute to treatment outcomes, and many of those are directly in the patient’s control.”

As if the battle against cancer weren’t bad enough, some chemical companies seem dedicated to making you sick so that you will need prescription drugs. For example, Monsanto loves to put chemicals in your foods and loves for you to eat GMO foods. Because the average person has been brainwashed by the media, they  think that nature can do nothing to help cancer.

The answer to the second question is this: Johanna Brandt’s cure rate was 100 percent.

Johanna Brandt did not need to know how to cure cancer, Nature had to know how to cure cancer. And Nature had put at least 12 chemicals in purple grape juice that can kill cancer cells.

The best way to survive cancer is to figure out what Nature has already done.
Dr. Kelley’s cancer treatments


Another natural medicine cancer researcher was Dr. William D. Kelley, a dentist turned natural medicine cancer researcher. He worked with more than 30,000 cancer patients using his protocol.

Dr. Kelley had a cure rate of 93 percent on his newly diagnosed cancer patients who had not had chemotherapy, radiation or surgery.

Dr. Kelley was thrown in jail and later went to Mexico to treat cancer patients.

Why did he go to jail? Because he used products to treat cancer which cannot be patented. Thus, the pharmaceutical industry and medical community had no interest in his treatments because they cannot make huge profits from treatments that cannot be patented.

So they had him thrown in jail. They did not care that he had a 93 percent cure rate, his treatments were not profitable enough to satisfy their greed.

Dr. Kelly used cancer treatments designed by Nature, such as natural enzymes. These enzymes made the cancer cells visible to the immune system and the immune system cured cancer. The enzymes were natural and could not be patented.

In other words, Dr. Kelly was not a medical doctor and he used natural medicine to achieve his 93 percent cure rate. Using Nature is an unforgivable sin according to the AMA and the media. His cure rate was irrelevant. Dr. Kelley died on January 30, 2005, at the age of 79.

His treatment is not a mystery, just buy his book on Amazon — Cancer: Curing the Incurable Without Surgery, Chemotherapy or Radiation — or the original book One Answer To Cancer

Note: The Kelley Protocol is no longer one of the major cancer treatments in natural medicine, due to newer technologies, though it is frequently added to the newer and more powerful protocol.

So let’s talk about today.

Today, the instant someone hears the term “natural medicine” they immediately run out the door as fast as they can run. But they are running away from the only highly effective cancer treatments. Nature is a lot smarter than any chemist.

Many people have cured their newly diagnosed cancer by using a very healthy diet and drinking a quart of carrot juice (with a little beet juice mixed in) every day. That is all they did.

In fact, if all cancer patients did that instead of using chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, the “cure rate” for cancer in America would jump dramatically.

But who would make huge profits telling cancer patients to drink a quart of carrot juice, mixed with a little beet juice, every day, and eat a healthy diet? Certainly not the medical community and certainly not the pharmaceutical industry and media. Carrot juice and beet juice cannot be patented. Nor can a healthy diet be patented.

The general public is so brainwashed they think Nature is too stupid to be a medical doctor. Yet scientists only understand about 3 percent of human DNA after studying it since 1953. This means scientists still don’t have a clue what 97 percent of all human DNA does.

There are many other examples of natural cancer researchers who also had very high cure rates.

Dr. Philip Binzel had an 81 percent cure rate using liquid laetrile from apricot seeds. He got liquid laetrile from Mexico. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tried to block the import of liquid laetrile into the United States. Fortunately, Dr. Binzel’s son was an attorney and the FDA was defeated in court.

Dr. Royal Rife, a microbiologist, had a 100 percent cure rate using electromedicine to kill microbes inside the cancer cells. The American Medical Association (AMA) tried to buy him out. Rife refused so the FDA shut him down and destroyed his lab and inventory.

And there are many others. In fact, the best cancer researchers ever are all alive today. We have had to develop very advanced cancer protocols because many of the patients we work with are very sick due to their starting their cancer treatment with orthodox cancer treatments.

All of the above natural technologies are currently used. The “Rife Machine” is now called a High RF Frequency Generator-Contact (15 watts) or High RF Frequency Generator-Plasma (207 watts).

Well, that is not their real names. We are not allowed by the vendor to mention their real names. I will bet by now you can figure out why the vendor does not want us to use the real names of these devices. He is afraid of the FDA.

Natural medicine cancer researchers today use many of the above protocols, but newer products and newer combinations of products have made some of the above protocols obsolete if used by themselves.

A powerful combination of natural cancer treatments and electromedicine are needed by cancer patients.

That is why the experts put together protocols with names like Cellect-Budwig, Dirt Cheap Protocol, High RF Frequency Protocol, Cesium Chloride, etc.
What the media doesn’t tell you about cancer

The media has conditioned the American people to believe that cancer is caused by DNA damage and that not even Nature can figure out how to cure cancer.

But surprisingly, DNA damage has absolutely nothing to do with causing cancer. But even if it did – so what? If you safely target and kill the cancer cells, what difference would it make that the cancer cells have DNA damage?

A Nobel Prize was awarded in 1930/31 for the discovery that low ATP energy was the definition of a cancer cell.

But it was a natural medicine cancer researcher (who obviously did not win a Nobel Prize) who discovered that the low ATP energy was caused by microbes inside the cancer cells which intercept glucose before it can be converted into pyruvate and then, via two chemical cycles, into ATP.

By killing these microbes, cancer cells can be reverted into normal cells. We now know it is not even necessary to kill cancer cells, they can be reverted into normal cells. The ICRF (Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. – natural medicine researchers) has developed more than 25 treatments that revert cancer cells into normal cells.

The DNA damage in cancer cells has absolutely nothing to do with causing cancer. The DNA damage is caused by the same thing that causes cancer — the microbes inside the cancer cells.

There are many cures for cancer. But these cures do not come from the pharmaceutical industry. The multi-billionaires/trillionaires who own the pharmaceutical industry have zero interest in the “little people” surviving their cancer.

The politicians, of course, side with the trillionaires because they are the ones who own the media and thus they are the ones who own the minds of the American people. You cannot get elected to the White House without selling out to the super-rich.

Cures for cancer must come from cancer researchers who have integrity and do not work for the pharmaceutical industry or Food and Drug Administration (Congress has given the FDA to the pharmaceutical industry as a gift to crush anyone who can cure a highly profitable disease) or any of the large cancer charities (which are controlled by the pharmaceutical industry).

The American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen For The Cure have no interest in curing cancer. They are collecting money. In fact, the American Cancer Society was really founded by John D. Rockefeller Jr. — son of the founder of the pharmaceutical industry.

No wonder the ACS has never found a cure for cancer. They have never been looking for a cure for cancer and they never will. If the ACS hired one of the ICRF researchers they would have over 25 cures for cancer within one week. But that will never happen.

The problem with curing cancer has nothing to do with science and everything to do with politics and information. People are told there are no cures for cancer, over and over, so they naturally believe it.

But it is a lie.

Actually, curing cancer is easy and many people know how to cure cancer.

    Revert Cancer Cells Into Normal Cells

The battle against cancer has nothing to do with cancer and everything to do with the manipulation of information by the super-rich.

The media uses a very sophisticated brainwashing tactic that has been around for many decades. Study this brilliant quote:

“No one understood better than Stalin that the true object of propaganda is neither to convince nor even to persuade, but to produce a uniform pattern of public utterance in which the first trace of unorthodox thought immediately reveals itself as a jarring dissonance.” — Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives by Alan Bullock

By using the constant repetition of seeing “medical doctors” on television, people are conditioned (the “uniform pattern of public utterance”) to believe that anyone who is not a “medical doctor” must be a quack (the “jarring dissonance”).

Thus, people run to their medical doctor when they get cancer. The media has done their job well.

Almost every time you turn on your television set you see a medical doctor being glorified. Why? So that when people are diagnosed with cancer, by a medical doctor, they will immediately want to know which medical doctors treat cancer.

This process has been going on for many years, long before you were born or television was invented. The Big Cartel of the media, the pharmaceutical industry, the politicians, the medical industry, etc. don’t want people to know that cancer can be cured.

The secret cartels use the media to turn people into zombies. Thus, when a person is diagnosed with cancer they head for an oncologist like a robot.

Because there are many cures for cancer in Nature, the super rich, who own the pharmaceutical industry and the media, make sure that no human being in America or in any other country, knows or believes that there are, in fact, scores of ways to cure cancer using natural medicine, meaning medicine from Nature.

Safely targeting cancer cells and killing cancer cells, or safely reverting cancer cells into normal cells, is not even remotely on the agenda of Big Pharma or Big Medicine or Big Media or Big Corrupt Politicians or Big Charities. But suppressing these cures is one of their highest priorities.

So what is on the radar of Big Pharma, ad nauseum? Profits, and lots of them. Curing cancer patients is literally the last thing on their radar.

But natural medicine cancer researchers have been curing cancer for many decades.

For example, Dr. Royal Rife, a microbiologist, had a 100 percent cure rate on cancer by reverting cancer cells into normal cells. He did this in the 1930s by using gentle electrical currents (which is one form of “electromedicine”) to kill the microbes which are inside the cancer cells.

It is microbes inside the cancer cells that are blocking the production of ATP energy. Killing these microbes is what allows cancer cells to be reverted into normal cells.

The American Medical Association (AMA) tried to “buy out Rife” so they could destroy his machines. Rife refused their “offer” so the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) shut him down and destroyed all of his lab and his machines that had not already been sold.

You probably didn’t know about Dr. Rife because the media has never told you about his 100 percent cure rate. The media has also not told you that his device has been replicated using modern technology and that you can buy these devices over the Internet.

But Dr. Rife is just the tip of the iceberg of things you don’t know …
The media iceberg

So why hasn’t the media told you about Dr. Rife and Dr. Kelley and many others? Why haven’t all of the media’s high-powered “investigative journalists” told their viewers about Dr. Kelley? Do these “journalists” not know how to read or search the Internet? What are they looking for — lost cats? Maybe someone should tell them about Google.

Did it ever occur to anyone that the “investigative journalists” are not allowed to investigate the media because they work for the media? If the media is part of a cover-up, how are people going to find out? And who is going to believe there is a cover-up?

The media is like an iceberg. They tell you 10 percent of the truth and they bury they other 90 percent of the truth. You need a scuba tank to find the truth. The media tells you what they want you to hear, not what you need to hear.

Consider the words to this well-known song:

And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information
Oh, they can bend it all they want

— Waiting on the World to Change by John Mayer

When someone comes along and tells something truthful about what is beneath the water, you won’t believe it. In fact, if you have read this far on this web page, pat yourself on the back because you are a rare person.

Why hasn’t the American Medical Association forced their members to use Dr. Kelley’s cancer treatments? The AMA certainly knows about Dr. Kelly’s treatments because they, along with the Food and Drug Administration, had Kelley thrown in jail because he was curing cancer, cutting into their profits and making them look bad.

Why hasn’t the American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Komen Foundation, ad nausea, used their massive contributions and their clout in the media to tell the world about Dr. Kelley’s cancer treatments?

In fact, there are only two cancer research organizations on this planet which teach about and research Dr. Rife’s and Dr. Kelley’s protocols: the Independent Cancer Research Foundation (which runs this website) and the American Anti-Cancer Institute in Washington state.

Obviously, both of these cancer research organizations are very, very small because the media never talks about them because they refuse to jump in bed with the pharmaceutical industry. Contributions to these cancer research organizations are measured in hundreds of dollars a month, not millions of dollars a month.

Why haven’t the state medical boards forced the doctors in their states to use Dr. Kelley’s cancer treatments?

Why don’t the health insurance companies pay for the medical expenses of the cancer patients who use Dr. Kelley’s cancer treatments? It would save their members billions of dollars a year.

Why hasn’t Congress passed a law forcing all medical professionals to use the cancer treatments of Dr. Kelley?

Why hasn’t the President of the United States ordered the Veteran’s Administration hospitals to use Dr. Kelley’s cancer treatments?

The reason is that everyone is looking for the most profitable cancer treatments, not the most effective cancer treatments. And the pharmaceutical industry has the most profitable cancer treatments. And everyone wants to be fed by Big Pharma.

Is there anybody on this planet who hasn’t sold out to the pharmaceutical industry?

Those who have sold out to the pharmaceutical industry include the media (which may largely be owned by the owners of the pharmaceutical industry), the movie companies, Congress, the White House, the American Cancer Society, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, the state medical boards, the American Medical Association, the health insurance companies, etc. etc. etc.

The health insurance companies are not allowed by the state insurance departments to write health insurance policies that pay the same percent for natural medicine cancer treatments as they allow to pay for orthodox cancer treatments. That is how deep the corruption and stupidity goes in the U.S.
High society clubs

The most important group in the above list is the media. They have the power to expose the corruption in medicine, politics, etc. But they don’t because they also want a piece of the pie and they are owned by the multi-billionaires.

The media receives many millions of dollars every year from the drug companies in advertising revenue.

How are people going to hear that fact? Ponder that carefully.

Need I even tell you that the media doesn’t make a dime to promote or talk about the cancer treatments that Dr. Kelley used? So the media doesn’t talk about Dr. Kelley and his cancer treatments.

People trust the media, Congress, the FDA, the AMA, the ACS, Big Pharma, etc. etc. with their lives, but these organizations have betrayed the general public for the sake of great riches.

The truth is that the media and our politicians are gladly controlled by the owners of the pharmaceutical industry; who are multi-billionaires who couldn’t care less about the health, well-being or lives of the “little people.”

It seems like everyone on earth wants a piece of the multi-billionaire’s pies. Except for people like the late Dr. Kelley.

Well, there is more to it than that. Both the media, the pharmaceutical industry, the major banks, etc. are owned by multi-billionaires (and in at least one case – multi-trillionaires) who are all buddy-buddy with each other. They all know each other. They even have their own very exclusive clubs (e.g. the Bilderbergers). They are totally loyal to each other, which is precisely why the media is loyal to Big Pharma but not the common people.

Now let’s dig deeper into the tactics of the media to understand why the media is so successful at controlling the minds of the general public to the point that the general public won’t believe the truth even when they hear it. Their tactics are highly sophisticated.

The answer will take some explanation.
Sophistication of the media

So why do people run to their medical doctor, instead of to the Internet or their local health food store, when they are first diagnosed with cancer? Think about that for a moment before reading on.

The media controls the minds of the American people by showing “medical doctors” on television every chance they get, as already mentioned. Whether you are watching a movie, a drama, a sitcom, a news program, a comedy or whatever, there will likely be a medical doctor on the show at one time or another. Think about the Star Trek movies, for example. Was there a medical doctor in those movies? Yes.

It is tit-for-tat. The pharmaceutical industry gives money to the media for advertising and the media gives patients to the medical community by glorifying medical doctors on television and movies.

Furthermore, the general public thinks that Dr. Kelley, who had the 93 percent cure rate, was a quack because he did not use pharmaceutical industry drugs and he was not a medical doctor. It doesn’t take a medical degree to tell cancer patients to take purple grape juice, a quart of carrot juice (with a little beet juice mixed in) or some other equally effective natural cancer treatment.

My point is that people trust their television to tell them what to do when they get sick. When people get sick they run to their doctor’s office because that is what television has conditioned them to do.

Christ described this level of brainwashing in Matt. 23:27 in two words: “whited sepulcher.” The media paints the whitewash on the sepulcher (the general public only sees the whitewash) and thus the general public has no idea what is inside the sepulcher or that the sepulcher even exists. They can’t see the bodies behind the television screen.

Running to their medical doctor in many cases is the right thing to do. But in other cases (i.e. in the case of nearly all diseases), it is the wrong thing to do. Your doctor has no clue how to cure cancer, AIDS, Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS, and many other diseases. But there are people who do know how to deal with all of these diseases using natural medicine.

What all of this means is that many, many people intentionally promote and glorify ineffective treatments for cancer in order to share in the massive wealth of the owners of the pharmaceutical industry.

But to be very fair, most of the people who preach chemotherapy and radiation have been fooled themselves and they don’t know the truth.

The nurses, the newscasters, the politicians. etc., like everyone else, also get their information from the media and their doctors.

The American Medical Association (AMA) is really nothing but a labor union. The AMA jumped in bed with the new pharmaceutical industry in 1907 and agreed to use the treatments that were most profitable for them, without any regard to the survival of their patients.

This may sound harsh, but the evidence is overwhelming that that is exactly what happened. The AMA had been corrupt long before 1907 and John D. Rockefeller, Sr., who started the drug companies to make more money from his oil, was already known to be a ruthless businessman who had a fantastic public relations department which existed to make him look like a respectable citizen.

In fact, the father of John D. Rockefeller, Sr. advertised himself as a “cancer doctor.” What did his father use to “cure cancer?” Raw crude oil which obviously did not cure cancer.

There is no “war on cancer.” What there is is a bottomless pit of money into which many people put their hands to grab money.
Foundation for the Advancement of Cancer Therapy

The Foundation for the Advancement of Cancer Therapy is pointing to a quarter century of research that brings into question the decision cancer patients often make to undergo conventional treatments, including radiation [1] and chemotherapy, in hopes of prolonging life.

Drug company controlled news reports and popular thinking has led cancer patients to believe that decades of research have resulted in treatment practices that have improved cancer survival rates.

But, FACT points to work by credible cancer researchers that seem to fly in the face of this commonly held belief. The late Dr. Hardin B. Jones, professor of medical physics and physiology at Berkeley, Calif., conducted research spanning 25 years in the life of cancer patients that led him to conclude that untreated cancer patients [2] did not die sooner.

In fact, in many instances, they lived longer than those undergoing conventional cancer treatments, such as surgery, chemotherapy [3] and radiation.

Professor Jones first presented his shocking research results at the American Cancer Society’s Science Writers’ Seminar in 1969. His findings confirmed an earlier paper he wrote in 1955 that shed doubt that common forms of treatment truly extended patient life.

In his earlier paper, Dr. Jones illustrated how cancer study results were skewed to conclude that treated patients fared better. For example, patients who died while receiving treatment were not included in results, giving an unrealistically rosier picture of the survival rate of treated patients.

In his 1969 presentation, the professor pointed out that research continued to shift results in favor of treatment. For example, patients whose cancer was extremely advanced were routinely placed in the group not receiving treatment. This left more patients who were less seriously impacted in the treated group, resulting in a higher survival rate for that group.

Once this bias was statistically corrected, Dr. Jones found that survival rate among untreated patients was actually greater than among the patients undergoing treatment.

Dr. Jones was able to determine that survival among breast cancer [4] sufferers were four times longer when conventional treatment was refused. Such patients typically lived an average of 12 1/2 years, compared with those undergoing treatment who lived only three years on average, leading the cancer researcher to conclude that without a doubt, radical surgery did more harm to cancer patients than it did good.

Meanwhile, FACT points out, there has been no published work refuting the evidence presented by Dr. Jones. On the contrary, his conclusions have been supported by the work of other recognized researchers. Among them was Massachusetts Institute of Technology biologist Dr. Maurice Fox who published his paper in 1979 stating that radical mastectomy did not bring about better survival rates than simple lump removal.

He also wrote that patients opting out of medical procedures actually had a lower mortality rate than those who chose to undergo treatment. Further, patients who received early diagnoses died even sooner, likely due to duration and intensity of treatment.

Even those advocating conventional treatment as the best choice for cancer patients cannot dismiss the toll such procedures take on the body. Cancer patients opting to undergo such treatment plans must cope with greater pain and suffering, often to the point where it greatly impacts the quality of life.

Patients undergoing conventional treatment can expect to cope with an often horrific list of serious side effects, including cancer growth and death. For example, as a known cancer-causing agent, radiation can actually spread cancer and lead to deadly metastases. Left untreated, however, the original cancerous tumor can often slow cancer’s spread.

Other common conditions that develop as a result of treatment include hemorrhage, tissue death, compromised immunity, liver failure [5], kidney dysfunction, blistering, prolonged vomiting, disorientation, anorexia, enteritis, and bone marrow depression, among other serious ills.

Bringing these researchers’ conclusions to light leaves cancer patients with a more difficult decision-making process, but one that may offer renewed choices. As always, patients ought to consult with a trusted medical doctor and loved ones in formulating the decision of whether or not to undergo treatments like radiation or chemotherapy.

As with many decisions they face, cancer patients will need to review all information available to determine the best course of action. Choosing a path that includes conventional treatment should be done based on available scientifically-grounded evidence and personal preference, not out of pressure or fear that avoiding treatment will surely condemn the patient to a shorter life expectancy.

200 mcg of selenium twice a day

It also was recommended not to eat more than four (4) ounces of meat per day – and to consume some branched-chain amino acids each day.
Final comments about Big Pharma, the FDA, AMA, etc.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and American Medical Association (AMA) have jointly or individually “legally” shut down many clinics of cancer researchers who knew how to cure cancer. They have also shut down vendors of products which were highly effective against cancer. They also scare other vendors who pretty-much have to go into hiding.

What if the FDA opened a cancer treatment center that used all of the natural cancer treatments they have shut down and some that are common knowledge which they did not shut down? What would the cure rate of this clinic be for newly diagnosed cancer patients?

The cure rate would be 100 percent.

Thus, both the FDA and AMA CANNOT CLAIM they do not know how to cure cancer. If they make such a claim they are lying, which is what they seem to do best.

Both the FDA and AMA KNOW how to cure cancer. They just choose not to cure cancer and they choose to sit by and do nothing (except persecute or murder people who know how to cure cancer) while hundreds of thousands of Americans die every year because they trusted the medical associations, pharmaceutical industry, media, Congress, corrupt charities, ad nauseum.

Natural home remedies: Nosebleeds

Nosebleeds often aren't serious, but they can be embarrassing and annoying. Here's how to prevent them from happening'and stop the flow when they do

They tend to occur at the most inopportune moments, and the sudden gushing of blood from your face can be both embarrassing and frightening, especially since a small amount can seem like liters when it’s soaking tissue after tissue with crimson. Don’t panic. Usually you can halt a nosebleed‘and save face’in a matter of minutes. Here are some effective ways to do it.
Pinch, press and spray

‘ The simplest remedy for a bloody nose is the time-honored pinch cure. Sit up straight with your head tilted slightly forward (to keep the blood from running down your throat). Gently blow out any clots that could prevent a vessel from sealing. Then pinch the soft part of your nose and press firmly toward your face. Hold that position for at least 10 minutes.

‘ Tired of pinching? Use a clothespin.

‘ Still dripping? Wad up a small piece of tissue or gauze, then stick it between your gums and upper lip in the area right under your nose. Leave it there for 5 to 10 minutes. The tissue puts pressure on the blood vessels that are sending blood to your nose. There are countless versions of this remedy’pouring vinegar, witch hazel, or lemon juice on the tissue; using a small square of brown paper from a bag sprinkled with salt; even placing a dime or a small, flat button under your upper lip instead of a tissue.

‘ Apply an ice pack alongside the bleeding nostril. The cold narrows the blood vessels in the nose to slow the spurting.

‘ If your nose still doesn’t stop dripping, sniff some nasal spray. Like ice, it will constrict the vessels in your nose, stanching the flow of blood.
The power of prevention

‘ If you want to avoid nosebleeds, keep your mucous membranes moist by drinking eight 250-mL glasses of water a day. You are well hydrated if your urine is pale, not dark.

‘ Don’t overdo the AC. Air-conditioning dries out the air, leaving you more prone to nosebleeds.

‘ In winter, add moisture indoors by running a humidifier.

‘ Dab the insides of your nose with petroleum jelly, or spritz your nostrils liberally with a saline nasal spray. Either method will help keep nostrils moist. This approach is helpful if you’re about to take a plane flight, if you’ve just recovered from a cold or sinus infection, or if you live in a very dry climate.

‘ Watch your aspirin intake. Aspirin can interfere with blood clotting, and of course that’s not a good thing if you get frequent nosebleeds.

‘ If you have nasal allergies, treat them promptly. Between the constant irritation caused by allergens and the damage done by blowing your nose, nasal membranes take a real beating when you’re having an allergic reaction.

‘ If you often have trouble with nosebleeds, take 1,000 to 1,200 milligrams of vitamin C every day to help prevent them. Vitamin C helps strengthen capillary walls and is also a vital component of collagen, a substance that gives your nostrils a moist, protective lining. Along with vitamin C, take 500 milligrams daily of a bioflavonoid supplement such as grape-seed extract, pine-bark extract, pycnogenol, or proanthocyanins. Flavonoids are known to heal capillaries.

7 Natural Remedies for Morning Sickness

Help combat the queasiness associated with pregnancy with these natural treatments for morning sickness

Feel better fast

You may be joyfully embracing the notion that a new life is growing inside you, but your body seems to be doing anything but. Considering how queasy you’re feeling, you have a perfect right to mutter a few unprintable words and snap at your significant other now and then. But you also have a right to some relief. When your stomach feels like it’s riding the seven seas, try these strategies to calm, soothe, and settle. But first, check with your doctor before ingesting any home remedy while you’re pregnant.

Try herbal tea

• Nothing beats morning sickness like a cup of ginger tea. The same spicy herb is used to counter motion sickness. To make ginger tea, boil 30 grams dried root (available in health-food stores) in 1 cup water for 15 to 20 minutes, strain, and sip.

• Herbal teas made with lemon balm, and peppermint are also known to reduce nausea. Use 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried herb per cup of hot water. Avoid peppermint tea if you have heartburn, however.

• Brew yourself a cup of red raspberry-leaf tea. The herb is popular for a number of pregnancy problems, including morning sickness, and has been shown to relax the smooth muscles of the uterus. Use 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried herb per cup of hot water. But with this remedy in particular, check with your doctor before taking it. There is some evidence that raspberry leaf can cause uterine contractions, so your doctor might advise against taking it later in the pregnancy or if you’re at increased risk for miscarriage.

And if you’re worried about drinking other herbal teas during pregnancy, don’t be. Tara Anchel, a registered naturopathic doctor based in Ottawa and member of the Naturopathic Doctor’s Association of Canada, says peppermint, lemon-balm and ginger tea are safe to drink while pregnant and she recommends them to her patients to relieve the symptoms of morning sickness. She explains it this way:

“The essential oil of some of these herbs is contraindicated during pregnancy, but there is a very low concentration of these oils in tea. The concentration is so low that it is safe. When you soak an herb in hot water, you’re only extracting the water-soluble components of the plant. As well, essential oils evaporate very quickly. When you have a steaming cup of tea, the first thing to evaporate is the essential oil.” These two facts combined mean that it’s safe for naturopathic doctors to recommend these herbal teas to pregnant women. As with anything you plan to eat or drink during pregnancy, it’s best to check with your own healthcare provider to determine what’s best for you and your baby.

Arrhythmia

The heart pumps blood around the body with every heartbeat. An arrhythmia is extra or skipped heartbeats that interrupt the normal rhythm of your heart. Find out what you can do to recognise arrhythmias.

An arrhythmia is a type of problem with how your heart beats.

Every heartbeat is triggered and controlled by an electrical signal (impulse) from the SA node in your heart. As an electrical signal moves through, down and across your heart muscle it triggers the heart muscle to contract. This allows blood to be pumped out of your heart and through your body. Find out more about how your heart's electrical conduction system works.
Types of arrhythmia

There are several main types of arrhythmias or heart rhythm problems: ​

    Fast heartbeat (tachyarrhythmia)
    Slow heartbeat (bradyarrhythmia)
    Irregular heartbeat (most commonly this is atrial fibrillation)

People with healthy hearts may have minor, harmless heart rhythm disturbances from time to time.


What causes arrhythmias?

Arrhythmias can be caused by:

    heart disease
    damage to the heart's electrical conduction system
    congenital heart defects.


Symptoms of arrhythmia

Some people have no symptoms of arrhythmia, while others experience symptoms like:

    Skipped heart beats
    A "fluttering" or pounding feeling in the chest, sometimes described as heart palpitations
    Feeling dizzy or light-headed
    Sudden shortness of breath
    Periodic weakness
    Fainting or sudden loss of consciousness.

Please talk to your doctor or nurse if you experience any of these symptoms.


Tests to identify arrhythmias

Your heart rate is a measure of the number of your heart's electrical signals or heartbeats per minute. You can work out your heart rate by taking your pulse - each throb that you feel is a heartbeat.

Sometimes you might be asked by your doctor to have a heart test to help diagnose whether or not you have an arrhythmia:

    Electrocardiograph (ECG)
    24 hour ECG
    Echocardiogram (Echo)
    Electrophysiological Study (EP study).


How to treat arrhythmias

After diagnosis, you will work with your doctor to develop a management plan that is right for you. This plan will depend on what sort of arrhythmia you have and the symptoms you experience, but it may include medication, surgery, and/or an implantable device like a pacemaker.

There are things you can do to manage your heart condition and live well with an arrhythmia.

Angina

Angina is usually caused by the build-up of plaque in your artery walls, which makes it harder for blood to get to your heart. Learn what to do when you have angina symptoms.

Angina happens when your heart isn't getting enough blood. Your heart may try to improve the blood supply by beating harder and faster. This causes symptoms of angina and is a sign that your heart needs to rest.

Angina symptoms differ depending on who you are, but common descriptions of angina include:

    Discomfort, heaviness or tightness of the chest which may spread to the back, shoulders, neck or jaw. Other people describe it as a dull ache.
    Discomfort in the arm, neck or jaw with no chest discomfort.
    The discomfort can range from mild or dull to severe.

Is it angina or a heart attack?

Sometimes people struggle to tell the difference between angina and a heart attack as the symptoms can be the same. With angina, the symptoms will ease after a few minutes of resting or taking medication prescribed by your doctor such as GTN (glyceryl trinitrate). If you are having a heart attack, your symptoms are unlikely to ease after a few minutes of resting or taking medication.

When you have symptoms of angina, follow your angina action plan.

What causes angina?

Angina is usually caused by atherosclerosis, which is the build-up of plaque in the walls of your arteries. This build-up can narrow one or more of the coronary arteries that feed blood to the heart. Having narrowed coronary arteries, can result in less blood getting to the heart muscle.
Tests to identify angina

The most common heart test used to check if you have angina involves looking at x-ray pictures of your arteries (angiography).
How to treat angina

There are treatments that can be used to help control angina long-term. These include:

    Opening up your arteries with a special balloon and stent (angioplasty)
    Making a new way for blood to flow around a blocked artery (bypass surgery)

You may also be prescribed medications to help prevent further angina episodes.

One of the most important things you can do is learn what triggers your angina and plan how to cope with your triggers. For example:

    Slow down or take rest breaks if angina comes on with exertion
    Avoid large meals and rich foods that leave you feeling very full, especially if angina comes on after a heavy meal
    Try to avoid situations that make you upset or stressed if angina comes on with stress
    Learn ways to handle stress that can't be avoided.

Living with angina is not just about managing the symptoms. You have an important role to play in your health, and can make choices today to improve your heart health.

What is Atrial Fibrillation (AF)?

Your Heart
Your heart is like your body’s main engine room. It is a powerful and important muscle that pumps blood throughout your body. This blood delivers oxygen and food to muscles and vital organs as it travels through an amazing network of blood vessels. This constant fuel supply is what helps you carry on all the things you do in your everyday life.

Your heart sits in the centre of your chest, between your lungs and is protected by your rib cage. It is about the size of your clenched fist. Your heart is made of four chambers, or rooms. The top two rooms are called atria. The bottom two rooms are called ventricles.

Each room has a valve that works like an automatic gate. The valve opens and closes, making sure blood only travels in one direction - similar to a one-way traffic system.

Your heart is powered to pump blood using its own electrical conduction system. You might have seen your heart’s electrical activity on a graph if you have undergone a heart test called an electrocardiogram (ECG).
The conduction cycle

Your heart’s electrical system is made up of three main parts:

    The sinoatrial (SA) node (Pacemaker)
    The atrioventricular (AV) node
    The His-Purkinje system.

A heartbeat is one cycle in which your heart’s ventricles relax (diastole) and squeeze (systole) to pump blood. This cycle includes the opening and closing of the valves in your heart.

When your heart’s ventricles relax, blood flows from the atria to the ventricles. Your heart’s atria squeeze and pump blood into the ventricles. The atria then relax. The ventricles follow by squeezing, pumping blood out of your heart.

In a healthy heart, each heartbeat (electrical impulse) begins from the SA node in your heart muscle. This node acts as your heart’s own in-built pacemaker. Your heart rate is the number of heartbeats the SA node produces per minute.


    The SA node (generator) sends out an electrical signal
    The signal makes cells in the atria squeeze, pumping blood into the ventricles
    The signal travels to the AV node (hearts junction) and slows briefly to allow your ventricles to fill with blood
    The signal follows a pathway called the Bundle of His down through the Purkinje fibres (hearts electical wiring) to your ventricles
    The signal makes cells in the ventricles squeeze and the heart to beat, pumping blood out of the heart
    The ventricles relax and wait for the next signal

While you are resting your heart will beat between 60 and 100 times per minute. The pulse you can feel, for example at the artery in your wrist, is the heart pumping the blood. Health care professionals can measure the rate and rhythm of your heart by taking your pulse. The rate is  the speed at which the beats occur and the rhythm is the frequency of each beat.

Sometimes your pulse will be faster or slower, depending on your health and whether you have exercised or are resting.

A fast heartbeat is known as Sinus tachycardia while Sinus bradycardia refers to a slow heartbeat. These are generally normal heart rhythms.

What is Atrial Fibrillation (AF)?
 
Atrial Fibrillation (AF) is a common type of irregular heart rhythm that causes poor blood flow to the body.

When you have AF, the top two rooms of your heart (atria) start making extra fast and irregular electrical signals. These extra signals make the atria twitch or quiver (known as fibrillation). These signals also affect your pulse, making it irregular and sometimes fast.

 About 4 in every 100 people aged over 65 has AF, making it the most common type of irregular heart rhythm (known as arrhythmia).

How common is AF?

Around 1% of the population (about 46,000 people) is affected by AF. Atrial fibrillation is often picked up during a medical examination for something else.

The risk of developing AF increases with age. It affects 4 in every 100 people over the age of 65 and 10 in every 100 people above 80 years old.


Types of AF

Atrial Fibrillation affects each person differently. Understanding the type of AF you have will help you manage your condition better.

There are 3 types of AF:

    Paroxysmal AF – This is a type of AF that comes and goes. Episodes can last for hours or days but not usually longer than a week. It goes away on its own without any medical treatment
    Persistent AF – AF episodes that last longer than 7 days at a time and generally need medical treatment with pharmacological/chemical or electrical cardioversion to bring back your heart rhythm back to normal
    Permanent AF – Your AF is there all the time and does not return to a normal rhythm even with medical treatment

Symptoms of AF

The symptoms of AF will vary between people. Some people will experience only mild symptoms while others will notice the symptoms in their daily life. You can have AF and have no symptoms. Other people may feel symptoms of AF straight away such as:


Over time, some people get used to being in AF and the symptoms are easier to deal with.

NOTE: Not all palpitations or irregular heartbeats are caused by AF. You may be experiencing early or extra beats (called ectopics) often caused by anxiety or stress. Most people who experience occasional ectopic beats generally don’t need to worry as these are not usually caused by an underlying heart condition, do not need treatment and are not dangerous.

Know your AF Symptoms: Some of the symptoms of AF can be signs of other more serious health problems. It is important to talk to your health professional if you have any symptoms of AF or if these symptoms change or get worse.
Causes of AF

The causes of AF are not always clear but the risk of developing AF increases with the following risk factors:
    Age – AF can affect adults at any age, but it is more common as people get older, particularly over 65yrs
    High blood pressure
    Coronary Artery Disease
    Disease of the valves in your heart
    Myocarditis
    Cardiomyopathies
    Heart Failure
    Overactive thyroid gland
    Lung infections i.e. pneumonia
    Obesity – particularly if you have sleep apnoea
    Alcohol – drinking large amounts of alcohol over a long period of time can greatly increase your risk of AF. Even young people can experience AF after binge-drinking episodes.
