“The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”
– Ann Wigmore

“He who takes medicine and neglects diet wastes the skill of the physician.”
– Chinese Proverb

There are mainstream doctors, and there are open-minded doctors who are few, but dedicated, within the alternative health community.  Dr. Mercola is one of these select few who isn’t afraid to not only call it how it is, but back up what he says with significant contributions and hard work.

Anyone that has been reading Dr. Mercola’s work for quite some time knows what kind of quality of work they will get.  For those that might be newer, as all of us were at one time, Dr. Mercola has been putting in hard work on his website, and he has been dedicated to help others find truths within the sphere of health, no matter how uncomfortable they may be.

It is no surprise then that in Fat For Fuel, Dr. Mercola has come out once again pulling no punches with his new effort to show the truth behind the myths claiming fats being unhealthy.  Better yet, he goes beyond that to provide the ample benefits that are to be had by eating healthy fats, which harbor immense benefits.

Fat For Fuel is a veritable crash course on how to streamline your health.  Some of the most salient points in the book, which stand to help a lot of individuals, is that Dr. Mercola takes a very comprehensive approach into showing how to cut off the supply line for cancer cells, how to improve your overall health with simple dietary/lifestyle changes, and even discusses how to maintain healthy mitochondria, which helps maintain optimal health reducing the likelihood of cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Type 2 Diabetes and other diseases.

All of this comes about through what Dr. Mercola calls Mitochondrial Metabolic Therapy [MMT].  Essentially, what MMT does is target mitochondria, which aids in bringing about healing of chronic disease.  This is accomplished by making sure the body uses fat as a primary fuel, rather than using glucose, which is far less optimal.

The system that Mercola provides is rather comprehensive in its approach, while not overlooking common issues that individuals may face in their journey towards optimal health.  The book offers considerations like when to eat and how much time to leave between, what cooking oils to avoid that are deleterious to health, ways to help individuals self-monitor their own health, and much more.

Extensively covered as well are the many benefits of fasting.  Thankfully, there are a few fasting options offered, as well as many of the do’s and don’ts as well.  Also covered there in are Mercola’s own favorite fast, as well as other fasts which also help the body reach optimal health.

The book even covers many of the extensive issues that are prevalent within individuals with too much iron.  This part alone is quite salient since it couples directly too many other health issues like Cancer, Diabetes, Obesity, and more.

In its totality, Fat For Fuel is an in-depth look at how the marvel of the human body can achieve healing by providing it with the proper fuel source.  If you’re interested in healing yourself without having to deal with the myriad issues of that conventional medicine espouses, then consideration of this book should be done.  One thing is for sure, after reading Fat For Fuel people will never think of fats – healthy fats! – in the same way ever again.

Book Review: The Healing Power Of Touch – The Many Ways Physical Contact Can Cure by Karin Sullivan

December 12, 2016

The Healing Power Of Touch – The Many Ways Physical Contact Can Cure by Karin Sullivan is an encyclopedia – albeit a small one – outlining the various ways that healing can be brought about through touch.

Sullivan begins by examining data which shows how powerful human touch can be.

From there the book is essentially split into two parts.

The first part of the book examines the vast array of touch therapies available to individuals.  Granted, given the wide-array of therapies discussed, the author gives each therapy a very cursory but reasonable overview.  Within these therapies discussed, some of the ones mentioned are: acupressure, reflexology, reiki, shiatsu, chiropractic, ayurvedic massage, aromatherapy massage, applied kinesiology, myofascial release, and much more.

From there on, the second part of the book focuses on specific conditions.  These conditions, which number at least 50 in the book, include many major diseases.  Each of these lists various of the therapies which were known at the time to work.  Some of these conditions included diabetes, depression, insomnia, headaches, hypertension, colitis, cancer, burns, bronchitis, bone spurs, sinusitis, shoulder pain, sciatica, pregnancy discomfort, Parkinson’s disease, nausea and vomiting, cancer, asthma, arthritis, and more.

One thing to keep in mind is that the information provided within the book was published in 1998.  Since then there has been increasing evidence and studies that showcase the many benefits of many of the alternative therapies mentioned in the book.  How many studies have been conducted really depends on which therapy is covered, but the fact remains that the benefits have helped many.

Alternative therapies have been growing immensely over the years and it is now a multibillion dollar industry.  This goes to show people are attempting to get away, and rightly so, from regular for-every-ill-there-is-a-pill mindset of BigPharma.  Books like this one help show what’s available for individuals, even if the book is slightly dated.

Regardless, the book can serve as a small encyclopedia, or as a jump-off point from where the individual may research further any of these topics.  Given that there are no side-effects for these therapies, they should at minimum be considered, if not downright researched thoroughly for individuals who have disease, or wish to stay in a health state of being.

Book Review: Eat To Beat Disease – Food’s Medicinal Qualities by Catherine J. Frompovich

Eat To Beat Disease – Food’s Medicinal Qualities by Catherine J. Frompovich is a phenomenal foray into the alternative side of health.  Specifically, the alternative side to medicinal properties of foods.

Although that statement might seem rather foreign to those who follow only mainstream health, in fact it’s not.  According to a recent article on NaturalNews, as much as 80% of the known world still uses ancient medicines made from Plants & Botanicals.  Sure, this book deals with food, but both this book and the article deal with natural medicine that the mainstream establishment doesn’t even acknowledge most of the time, if at all.

Eat To Beat Disease is a significant book that features an extensive and in-depth look into the pros and cons of many foods people have in their daily diets.

Speaking of toxins, Frompovich gets to the heart of the matter as she states:

“…there are literally thousands of toxic chemicals that legally can be – and are – placed into the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe.  Furthermore, even the U.S. Food and Drug Administration doesn’t know what some of those chemicals are thanks to the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 loopholes!”[1][xxvi]

Such is the nature of the beast we as a society face.

In fact, Frompovich goes out of her way to show a rather intriguing, if troubling timeline of the extensive poisoning that our supply has been under for nigh 150 years [if not longer].  This is helpful because it speaks at length of the issue of our deteriorating soil and the fact that vitamins and minerals are being depleted from the soul due to the events discussed and more.

Other issues discussed by Frompovich included those with prescription drugs, the rampant rise in disease, health issues that are trending, as well as issues with intestines and bowel movements.   The author touches upon these rather saliently showing why each is vital to know about.

Probiotics/Prebiotics are also given a cursory glance, so are artificial sweeteners and their ramifications, as well as issues that revolve around sugar, which is a rather underreported topic by the mainstream establishment.   It’s quite unfortunate, because sugar is one of the biggest fuels in cancer, and most people do not know this.

In any case, Frompovich also covers foods that can help reduce pain, which was rather useful.  As someone who suffered heavily from inflammation for nigh two decades due to intestinal conditions but overcame it with diet and lifestyle changes, dealing with pain in a natural way is something greatly appreciated.

A short section, but jam-packed with info in the book is called “Which Foods Help The Body Most In Managing Certain Diseases”.  This section touches upon some of the foods that are helpful in combating issues with blood pressure, cancer, cholesterol, diabetes, heart, the immune system, and stroke.

Other health issues that Frompovich gives a fair nod to are Gallbladder [Disease & Stones], Hypothyroidism, Glaucoma & Obesity & Weight Loss.

Additionally, the book includes a chapter that touches upon HPV Vaccine Reactions and what individuals can do when implementing proper nutrition.  This might be highly helpful for individuals that have dealt with this.

Thereafter, the author covers the importance of B-Complex Vitamin, benefits of fermented foods, and also problems with genetically modified foods which are rampant these days.

Featured also in the book are countless resources that people can use to learn more information about these subjects.  This was also highly valuable given the importance of the subject.

Besides all of this, the author covers so much more.  In all fairness, a few sections of the book are not super in-depth, BUT, this is because the author is taking a broad brush approach to cover as much as possible within the arena of nutritional health.  The information provided does give enough of a launching pad for individuals to begin taking charge of their health, which is one of the premises of this book.  That fact does in no way detract from the book, it’s just something to keep note of.

One more important point.  The author – thankfully! – footnoted the book extensively, which is how ALL books should be done, at the bottom of each page, like it used to be done in olden times.

Unfortunately, newer footnoting techniques have changed extensively from how books were written centuries ago.  This in a way serves as de facto censorship of data and prevents people from accessing information by either making it harder to find, or simply not even having it in many cases.  The fact that many ebooks, if not most don’t even have footnotes speaks to this VERY issue, which is vital importance, especially for those who value knowledge and research.

Apologies for the tangent, it’s just that as a researcher its highly valuable when people footnote their sources within their book, or articles.

Eat To Beat Disease is a veritable template for the many ways individuals can employ nutrition to conquer disease.  It’s the type of book that should be discussed at length in society, and by the mainstream press, but will not any coverage due to the ramifications and the profits it would ‘steal’ from Big Pharma/Big Medica.  That fact alone should make proactive and mindful individuals weary since optimal health methods should be something to strive for, or at least discuss, and not something to overlook if not downright suppress, which is what happens more often than not.

This blacklisting is best exemplified by what took place to Dr. Brogan in her landmark book A Mind Of Your Own – The Truth About Depression.

When one keeps in mind the above constellation of facts and more, this book is invaluable and should become part of your library.

Book Review: Food Forensics by Mike Adams

foodforensics

BreakawayConsciousness
Zy Marquiez
August 15, 2016

This is the type of book, similar to Dr. Brogan’s A Mind Of Your Own, that the mainstream media won’t touch.  The data provided is too important, too thought-provoking, too paradigm shifting for the mainstream press to get involved, which is why it will take a grassroots effort to get the information out there.  And it will get out there.

Within the alternative media there are many people putting out quality information.  Then, there are others who have raised the bar of credibility and subjects that affect us all.  Mike Adams is one of the latter.

Food Forensics is a veritable discourse into many of the dangers we as individuals face in respect to the many toxins that people expose themselves within their food.  Because of those data points, this is where this book shines.

Adams takes a methodical approach outlining the many dangers involved with the foods that he’s tested in a manner that is sensible, responsible, and credible.

All the information provided might seem shocking to some, but unfortunately this is definitely ‘par for the course’ given the relentless onslaught of toxins we face in our daily lives from establishment corporations et al.

Throughout each page, the reader can certainly follow the concern that Adams has for the noxious substances some people are exposing themselves too.

The book is laid out in a pretty straight forward no-nonsense way.  Adams provides more than ample information that can be digested [no pun intended] by the reader and thoroughly pondered.  It’s really a vital issue  given how many people are being exposed to these deleterious substances.

As individuals, it’s imperative to be proactive and boycott ALL BUSINESSES that that will put their profits over your health.  Not only that, but we need to let others know what’s wrong.  This is too important not to spark fires of curiosity in other individuals.

How the health of our society looks many years from now will be highly dependent on what proactive/inquisitive individuals inform themselves about.  Books such as this make it possible not only to harpoon core issues that affect all of us, but also sets the template for how to live an inherently healthier life.

Book Review: The Medical Mafia – Dr. Guylaine Lanctot, M.D.

There aren’t many doctors who have historically spoken out against the Medical Industrial Complex, but Dr. Guylaine Lanctot is one of them.  For that, she should be applauded greatly.

The Medical Mafia is not what the usual medical book will be like.  In that lies its strength.

Dr. Lanctot makes takes a multidimensional approach to show almost every corrupt level within the medical establishment, ranging from one side in the spectrum of disease, all the way to the level of individual healing is being controlled by the Medical Mafia.  This level would also entails corruption, how the A.M.A. doesn’t serve the health of the people, how Rockefeller interests took control of health in the earliest 20th century, as well as much more.

The author lays down the gauntlet against all components in the medical system that have served only to bleed people dry of money, health, while also maintain the status quo.  The author makes it a point to show why the medical structure is fraught with issues, and also outlines many ways individuals can take charge of their health once again.

For a book that’s a couple of decades old, this book is more important now than ever.  With preventable medical mistakes costing hundreds of thousands of lives and maiming hundreds of thousands more PER YEAR, it’s time for people to rethink their paradigm of disease we have acquiesced too.

The whole notion of a ‘Medical Mafia’ will stir some people the wrong way, but the enormous amount of evidence compiled in this book, as well as many other makes it undeniable.

As Dr. Lanctot notes within the book:

“In 1978, the Officer of Technology Assessment conducted a major study on scientific medicine and presented its results to Congress.  It concluded that 80% to 90% of treatments used in scientific medicine have not be proven by clinically-controlled studies.  In other words they were being used and taught extensively despite the fact that they were not scientifically proven.”[P173]

Furthermore:

“In 1985, the National Academy of Science repeated the same study.  With the same results.”[P173]

The book is so overloaded with truth, that Dr. Lanctot actually lost her license because of it.  Censorship knows no bounds unfortunately.

Within the land of profits over health, corruption reigns, and when one sounds the alarm on the system, there’s usually hell to pay.  Dr. Lanctot is not the only one either.

The extremely unique way the author tackles how the issue of corruption within the medical establishment takes place is quite notable.  The fact that the author also touched upon the history of medicine was quite refreshing as well.  The author touches upon not only the Flexner Report, but also the Declaration of Alma Ata.  Predictably speaking, Globalist Rockefeller interests are all over these issues.

Other topics discussed quite well by the author regard Cancer, Vaccines, as well AIDS.  These topics are addressed incisively and will leave the reader quite curious, if not downright furious about what’s taking place.

Most importantly though, the fact that Dr. Lanctot made it a point to take a detached, practical and reasonable approach to how individuals can take back their health makes the book quite exceptional.

As a bonus, the list of resources in the back is stellar!  There’s dozens of books from different topics that the reader might want to look into.  As an avid researcher, this was greatly appreciated.

This book is an absolute indispensable masterpiece within the field of health and is an essential tool to understanding how an individual can navigate within the current for-profit and not for-health medical system.

Book Review: Phantom Self by David Icke

phathom-self

“When you’re the only sane person, you look like the only insane person.”
– Criss Jami

“Nothing is easier than self-deceit.  For what each man wishes, he also believes to be true.”
– Demosthenes

David Icke is surely a controversial speaker.

Icke’s work has come to be known as fascinating as it is wide-ranging, and for good reason.   The man will leave no stone unturned.  He’s not afraid of heading into places other people can’t even fathom, and many have come to appreciate this.

In Phantom Self, David Icke does a resounding job of not only showing various methods the system employs to carve out the consciousness from individuals, but he also shows the numerous facets the system has that play a role in making this process possible.

Throughout the book, Icke makes it a point from differentiating that we have two selves, the more superficial version of us that goes through life unaware of the deeper structure of life and reality, and the deeper level of conscious awareness that holds our unending potential, which is rarely tapped by individual.

Phantom Self showcases some of the previous information that Icke has shown, with good reason.  Much of this information is just as vital now, if not more so, as it was in the past.  And things have only gotten worse globally.

Readers of his previous work will be familiar with some of it.  Still, the information that Icke provides and how he distills it is vital to understanding how individuals and society will shed its shackles from the control grid as long as they take the appropriate action.

Issues such as education, media manipulation, propaganda, technology, genetically modified foods, bloodlines, depopulation/eugenics, Agenda 21/Agenda 2030, weather modification, et al are addressed quite extensively throughout.  The push for a transhumanistic future is also saliently detailed by the author.

As an avid researcher, my one qualm with the book is that Icke doesn’t source all of his statements.  He does provide quite a few sources, but a lot of the information that he writes as ‘matter of fact’ would be much stronger if he at least buttressed those statements with how he came to those conclusions.  There’s nothing wrong with giving your opinions about a matter, and they surely might be facts mind you, however, in order for some people to visualize the extent of control and corruption they will need to see a roadmap.  A roadmap is made up of those signposts, and those signposts in research are sources.

Be that as it may, that last fact doesn’t detract from the book.  Phanton Self provides more than ample information for it to be worth one’s money.

How icke chose to conclude the book resonates quite well, and certainly makes a lot of sense.

Its through individual self awareness and realization of our deeper conscious state that we as individuals will be able to see that we are the solution to the system.

Aggression will not be the solution to overturning the system.  In fact, the opposite is the case.  The system is ready for aggression in more ways than most realize.  Once we realize the depth of the power of our true selves – the power of the love for another – we will be able to detach ourselves from the meaningless and head on a new path.

The system will be changed only by people removing their support from it in every way shape or form.  Then, and only then will we be able to birth a new process and reign in the beginnings on the morrow.

As Ghandi once said:

“You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees.  An evil system never deserves such allegiance.  Allegiance to it means partaking of this evil.  A good person will resist an evil system with his or her own soul.”

What Is Part Of The [Establishment] Plan?

By: Zy Marquiez
January 4, 2016

Pondering quite a bit upon a recent conversation with a friend of mine, we delved into things that are obviously a plan of the comptrollers, and some events that are not.

Things that are ‘part of the plan’ as the Joker [Heath Ledger] famously joked in the second modern Batman reboot, are things/issues that society as a whole has gotten used to, for various reasons.

Things that aren’t part of the plan, are things that throw a wrench into the ‘official’ reality, so to speak.

Here’s that starkly grim and yet illuminating quote:

“You know what I noticed? Nobody panics when things go “according to plan.” Even if the plan is horrifying! If, tomorrow, I tell the press that, like a gang banger will get shot, or a truck load of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it’s all “part of the plan”. But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!”
– Joker

The clip below elucidates this best.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0AXgaFqEas

With that said, am not by any means advocating that people should do anything to any mayors, people in power, or anything of the like.  Was just using the notion behind that particular scene to show how reality ultimately operates.

The plan is what society expects based on what the duplicitous media/establishment/corporations expounds. If society expects a certain thing to happen, be it organic, or engineered, then its ‘part of the plan.’ But if society doesn’t expect a certain event to take place, then that’s not part of the plan, but also usually ends up in people’s ‘moral compass’ coming off the hinges in a myriad of ways because their carefully orchestrated reality [illusion] just got shattered.

The careful management of illusion is why so many vital topics of utmost importance are not talked about within the duplicitous mainstream media circles.

Rummaging further, we can gather that although the above line was said in a fictionary world, we must remember that in America everything is backwards.

“In America fact is fiction and fiction is fact”, as former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Catherine Austin Fitts says regularly. This is because Hollywood elucidates quite clearly how our reality operates much more than most realize or care to ponder.

How do we know what is part of the plan by the comptrollers?   By sifting for evidence that show us the unfortunate circumstances.

Here are some notable examples:

Not allowing people to have organic, real salmon is part of the plan.

– Not having mainstream media presstitutes talking about fake grassroots movements funded by Corporations, also known as astroturfing is part of the plan.

– Not discussing countless studies of vaccinations [80+ studies outlining some of the dangers of vaccinations] that blow a hole into the mainstream media & establishment narrative the size of cape cod is part of the plan.

– Not discussing Geoengineering information that is pertinent to our every day health, and to our knowledge of our current environment is part of the plan.

Not having actual Presidential debates of substance like they used to have in times past is part of the plan.

– Not discussing cannabis’ benefits with certain diseases. There are countless diseases cannabis benefits for what its worth.  Look it up.

– Not discussing the work of Dr. Burzynski, which happens to have come up with an effective way in dealing with some cancers, and yet this isn’t discussed in the mainstream at all.

– Not discussing the dangers that fluoride poses in when its added to water. Not only water fluoridation failed modern civilization [as if it could really succeed], but its been rejected by place after place after place.

Not addressing findings that throw a wrench into the official history of The Great Pyramid is part of the plan.

– And finally, not discussing how the mainstream media manipulation machine is spearheaded by six media conglomerates, how their viewer numbers are declining & how they’ve been caught lying about stories is part of the plan.

Keep in mind that, you returning to your regularly scheduled programming, is also part of the plan.

Now the open-minded, skeptic, incisive, BS-detecting, relentlessly researching, [un]common sense individual though? That’s not part of their plan.

You going to follow their plan?   Or you going to create your own?

The choice is yours.
