Research and Animals Alike Tell Us not to eat genetically modified foods
The farmer grinned as he told the visitor, “Watch this!” He called his pigs, which ran frantically towards him to be fed. But when he scooped out corn and threw it on the ground, the pigs sniffed it and then looked up at the farmer with confused expectation. The farmer then scooped corn from another bin and flung it near the pigs, which ran over and quickly devoured it.
The farmer said, “The first corn is genetically engineered. They won’t touch it.”
It’s not just pigs that swear off genetically modified organisms (GMOs). In South Africa, Strilli Oppenheimer’s chickens won’t eat genetically modified (GM) corn. Most buffalo in Haryana, India, refuse cottonseed cakes if made from GM cotton plants. Geese migrating through Illinois only munched sections of the soybean field that was non-GMO. When given a choice, elk, deer, raccoons, and rats all avoided GMOs. And even during the coldest days of Iowa winter, squirrels, which regularly devour natural corn, refused to touch the GM variety.
One skeptical farmer who read about the squirrels wanted to see for himself if it was true. He bought a bag full of GM corn ears, and another of non-GM, and left them in his garage till winter. But by the time he fetched the bags, mice had done the experiment for him. They broke into the natural corn bag and finished it; the GM cobs were untouched.
Doctors prescribe no GMOs
No one knows why the animals refuse GMOs, but according to a 2009 statement by the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), when lab animals do eat GM feed, it’s not pretty. “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food,” says the AAEM policy paper, which specifically cited infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system, among the impacts of eating GMOs. “There is more than a casual association between GM foods and adverse health effects,” they wrote. “There is causation…”
Although we humans don’t have a natural sense to stay away from GM foods, AAEM’s position indicates that we should take a lesson from the animals. This renowned medical organization, which first recognized such dangers as food allergies, chemical sensitivity, and Gulf War Syndrome, called on all physicians to prescribe non-GMO diets to all patients.¹ They also called for a moratorium on GMOs, long-term independent studies, and labeling.
Former AAEM President Dr. Jennifer Armstrong says, “Physicians are probably seeing the effects in their patients, but need to know how to ask the right questions.” Renowned biologist Dr. Pushpa M. Bhargava and many others believe that GMOs may be a major contributor to the deteriorating health in America since GM foods were introduced in 1996.
GMOs on your plate
There are eight GM food crops: soy, corn, cotton, canola, sugar beets, Hawaiian papaya, and a little bit of zucchini and yellow squash. The two primary reasons why plants are engineered are to allow them to either drink poison, or produce poison.
Poison drinkers are called herbicide tolerant. Their DNA is outfitted with bacterial genes that allow them to survive otherwise deadly doses of toxic herbicide. The first five crops on the list above have herbicide tolerant varieties. The poison producers are called Bt crops. Inserted genes from the soil bacterium Bacillus Thuringiensis produce an insect-killing pesticide called Bt-toxin in every cell of the plant. That is found in corn and cotton. The papaya and squashes have virus genes inserted, to fight off a plant virus. All GM crops are linked to dangerous side effects.
Pregnant women and babies at great risk
GM foods are particularly dangerous for pregnant women and children. After GM soy was fed to female rats, most of their babies died—compared to a 10% deaths among controls fed natural soy.²b GM-fed babies were smaller, and possibly infertile.³
Testicles of rats fed GM soy changed from the normal pink to dark blue.3 Mice fed GM soy had altered young sperm.4 Embryos of GM soy-fed parent mice had changed DNA.5 And mice fed GM corn had fewer, and smaller, babies.7
In Haryana, India, most of those buffalo that did consume GM cottonseed ended up with reproductive complications such as premature deliveries, abortions, and infertility; many calves died. About two dozen US farmers said thousands of pigs became sterile from certain GM corn varieties. Some had false pregnancies; others gave birth to bags of water. Cows and bulls also became infertile.
Eating poison in every bite
When insects take a bite out of the corn and cotton plants engineered to produce Bt-toxin, their stomach splits open and they die. Because that same toxin is used in its natural bacterial state as a spray by farmers for insect control, biotech companies claim that it has a history of safe use and can be incorporated directly into every plant cell.
The Bt-toxin produced in GM plants, however, is thousands of times more concentrated than natural Bt spray, is designed to be more toxic, has properties of an allergen, and cannot be washed off the plant.
Moreover, studies confirm that even the less toxic natural spray can be harmful. When dispersed by plane to kill gypsy moths in Washington and Vancouver, about 500 people reported allergy or flu-like symptoms.¹, ¹¹ The same symptoms are now reported by thousands of farm workers from handling Bt cotton throughout India.¹²
GMOs provoke immune reactions
GMO safety expert Dr. Arpad Pusztai says changes in immune status are “a consistent feature of all the [animal] studies.”¹³ From Monsanto’s own research to government funded trials, rodents fed Bt corn had significant immune reactions.¹, ¹
Soon after GM soy was introduced to the UK, soy allergies skyrocketed by 50%. Ohio allergist Dr. John Boyles says “I used to test for soy allergies all the time, but now that soy is genetically engineered, it is so dangerous that I tell people never to eat it.”
GM soy, corn, and papaya contain new proteins with allergenic properties.¹ In addition, GM soy has up to seven times more of a known soy allergen.¹ Perhaps the US epidemic of food allergies and asthma is a casualty of genetic manipulation.
Animals dying in large numbers
In India, animals graze on cotton plants after harvest. But when shepherds let sheep graze on Bt cotton plants, thousands died. Investigators said preliminary evidence “strongly suggests that the sheep mortality was due to a toxin…most probably Bt-toxin.”¹ In one small study, all sheep fed Bt cotton plants died; those fed natural plants remained healthy.
In an Andhra Pradesh village, buffalo grazed on cotton plants for eight years without incident. On January 3rd, 2008, 13 buffalo grazed on Bt cotton plants for the first time. All died within three days.¹ Bt corn is also implicated in the deaths of cows in Germany, and horses, water buffaloes, and chickens in The Philippines.²
In lab studies, twice the number of chickens fed Liberty Link corn died; 7 of 40 rats fed a GM tomato died within two weeks.²¹ Those rats had refused to eat the tomato and had to be force fed.
Worst finding of all—GMOs remain inside of us
The only published human feeding study revealed that even after we stop eating GMOs, harmful GM proteins may be produced continuously inside of us; genes inserted into GM soy transfer into bacteria inside our intestines and continue to function.²² If Bt genes also transfer, eating GM corn chips might transform our intestinal bacteria into living pesticide factories.
Warnings by government scientists ignored and denied
According to documents released from a lawsuit, in 1991–92 scientists at the FDA repeatedly warned that GM foods might create allergies, poisons, new diseases, and nutritional problems.²³ But the White House ordered the agency to promote biotechnology, and Michael Taylor, Monsanto’s former attorney, headed up the FDA’s GMO policy. That 1992 policy—still in effect today—declares that no safety studies on GMOs are required. Monsanto and other producers determine if their foods are safe. Taylor later became Monsanto’s vice president, and was reinstalled at the FDA in 2009 by the Obama administration as the US Food Safety Czar.
Opting out as guinea pigs
Biologist Dr. David Schubert of the Salk Institute says, “If there are problems [with GMOs], we will probably never know because the cause will not be traceable and many diseases take a very long time to develop.” In the 9 years after GM crops were introduced in 1996, Americans with three or more chronic diseases jumped from 7% to 13%.² Allergies doubled in less time. And the incidence of low birth weight babies, infertility, and infant mortality are all escalating. But without any human clinical trials or post marketing surveillance, we may never know if these or other disorders like autism, obesity, and diabetes, are triggered or made worse by GMOs.
We don’t need to wait for more research to learn our lesson from the animals and the doctors. Consult the Non-GMO Shopping Guide ( http://www.nongmoshoppingguide.com/ ) to learn how to avoid GMOs. Even a small percentage of people choosing non-GMO brands could force the food industry to remove all GM ingredients. By doing so, you are not only being careful about your own health, you are being compassionate to the environment and future generations—since GMOs wreak long-term havoc in our ecosystem as well.

Invisible GM Ingredients
Processed foods often have hidden GM sources (unless they are organic or labeled non-GMO).
The following ingredients may be made from GM crops or GM micro-organisms.
Aspartame, also called NutraSweet®, Canderel®, Equal Spoonful®, E951, BeneVia®, AminoSweet®
cobalamin (Vit. B12)
fructose (any form)
high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)
hydrolyzed vegetable protein
mono and diglyceride
monosodium glutamate (MSG)
soy protein isolate
sugar (unless cane)
tocopherols (Vit E)
Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) although usually derived from corn, is probably not GM because it is not likely made in North
Popcorn is NOT GMO. (Thank goodness.)

A CURE FOR CANCER HAS BEEN FOUND
The closest Michael Kalafatis ever will get to being a rock star is a photo posted near his office door at Cleveland State University.
In a photo, a musician, strutting across a stage, soaks in the applause and adulation of thousands of fans. On it, a caption reads: “The biochemical superstar, Dr. Kalafatis, is shown here leaving a recent Cleveland State lecture.”
“Some of my students did that. … Funny huh?” he said.
Those crazy college kids.
Is it possible that there is a cure for cancer?
A Cleveland State University professor believes there is. And a panel of independent reviewers at both the Cleveland Clinic and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) agree.
Professor Michael Kalafatis, heads up research for Cleveland State University (CSU). For over 10 years he’s led CSU research into blood coagulation.
it happened by accident. Right there inside chemistry labs in a science building along Euclid Avenue. A dozen or so blocks from the Indians’ Progressive Field or Cleveland Browns Stadium — sites that Stark Countians are probably more familiar with. Kalafatis calls it a case of “serendipity” rather than “stumbled.”
“Your best discoveries are from something you weren’t expecting,” says David Anderson, the associate dean of Cleveland State University.
That’s exactly how this breakthrough happened.
Kalafatis was working on a research project related to genes and blood coagulation. His students added a special compound to human cancer cells in a petri dish.
The compound killed the cells. This wasn’t the point of the experiment… or what Kalafatis expected. He thought his students had botched the experiment. So he had them do it again. And they got the same results. Shocked by the incredible possibility, he did the test himself. And got the same result. With disbelief… he did it again. And again the compound killed the cancer cells.
So he broadened the experiment. Using the compound that he now calls CancerX, Kalafatis applied it to different types of cancer.
Breast cancer… prostate cancer… leukemia… brain cancer… CancerX killed them all.
But experiments in petri dishes don’t mean the same thing as they do in real life. So he took his experiments to the next level.
Discovering the cure
Kalafatis injected human cancer cells into mice and allowed them to grow into full-blown tumors. Then he applied CancerX.
Nothing happened at first.
A week went by.
“Then I got a phone call,” says Kalafatis. “The tumor had disappeared.”
It was then that he knew he was onto something. He began running a gamut of tests. Every type of cancer he could test… and it killed ALL of them.
He’s since tested almost 60 different types of cancer. Tumors dramatically shrink – or are entirely killed. And even better… there’s no damage to surrounding tissue or healthy cells.
He’s had his findings confirmed by the Cleveland Clinic and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Clinic ran a series of tests on dozens of different types of cancer. These included brain, kidney, and liver. They found it destroyed the tumors… with no harm to healthy cells.
The NIH conducted Phase I and II trials on over 50 different types of cancer. They got the same results - every time.
Now Professor Kalafatis is ready to take his trials to the final level – testing on human patients. If those trials prove successful… he believes a cure for cancer could be available within 10 years.
Boost Your Vision with One Simple Super Food
Let me introduce you to one of nature’s wonders: the Chinese call them wolfberries… but in the West they’re called Goji berries.
This shriveled red berry could be mistaken for a raisin… but its health benefits are unparalleled. It’s a powerful antioxidant. A super anti-aging tool. And brand new research shows that it can improve vision – or repair retinal damage… even for people in their 70s.
Goji berries have been used for 6,000 years by herbalists in China, Tibet and India to:
The new study was made by Kansas State University earlier this year. Professor Dingbo “Daniel” Lin led the two-year research project.
Professor Lin was inspired by his own cultural heritage. He set out to see if the myths were true about the berries. He was most interested in the ones that said that the berries improve eyesight.
“In our culture, we have literature about the berry and its functions,” he says.
The professor knew that Goji berries had a long history of improving vision. But he wanted to understand how that happened. An earlier study – published in 2005 in the British Journal of Nutrition – had found that the berries impacted age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Professor Lin believed the secret power of the berries lay in their rich antioxidants.
He used dried berries and examined how they affected retina cells. He found they contain high levels of zeaxanthin, lutein, polysaccharides, and polyphenolics. These antioxidant-rich compounds all improve vision.
In recent years, goji juice has become popular as a health beverage. Companies marketing goji juice often mention the unsupported claim that a man named Li Qing Yuen consumed goji berries daily and lived to be 252 years old. Marketers also list extensive health benefits of goji juice, even though there are few published clinical trials in humans.
Problems with Lipitor
The side effects of Lipitor and other cholesterol lowering medications (called statins) have been the subject of much controversy in recent years. For this reason, many people are now looking for natural alternatives to statins to avoid the possible Lipitor side effects.
For millions or people, statin drugs are the number one doctor-prescribed defense against heart disease. In fact, so many people take them that we spent $12.5 billion on Lipitor in 2006 alone. But brand new research reveals that they may seriously damage your health. That’s because statins significantly increase your risk of diabetes.
That means millions of people taking the drugs now have to decide which is worse… heart disease or diabetes.
Dangers of Statin Drugs
. Plenty of reports say statin drugs cause severe pain and can actually make muscles atrophy. Worse, they may actually increase your risk of stroke.
Now, a brand new study, published in The Lancet, confirms that statins do cause diabetes. Researchers reviewed the case files of over 91,000 people from 1994 through 2009. They found a direct link between people taking statins and developing diabetes.
Our health is paying a dear price by digestive problems and nutritionally related illness. These lead the list of human pathology. Digestive problems are the No. 1 problem in North America. These diseases, encompassing everything from hemorrhoids to colon cancer. Many of them were almost unheard of in our grandparents’ times, they are cropping up more and more and at an earlier and earlier age. These include :
Irritable bowel syndrome Its symptoms include bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain and spasms, and nausea. The pain is often triggered by eating, so people suffering from IBS don’t always eat enough, which results in malnutrition. Food allergies, medication, stress, hormone changes, low fiber intake, infection, parasites, lactose intolerance, laxatives, and antibiotic abuse could all be involved. In fact, the consensus is that just about anything that disturbs our intestinal bacterial balance—the ratio of good bacteria to bad bacteria—could have a hand in causing.
Another common Digestive problem is
Candidiasis is a fungal infection. It is caused by candida albicans, bacterium that is found in small amounts in nearly everyone. When the bacteria multiplies, they can cause health problems. Most of us know this condition by a number of names: Candidiasis is called a yeast infection in the vagina, a fungal infection in the fingernails, and thrush in the throat. What many of us do not know is that candidiasis is indeed a digestive problem.
C. albicans can colonize the digestive tract. When the colonies grow unchecked, they produce powerful toxins that are absorbed into the bloodstream. The toxins then travel throughout the body, resulting in many different symptoms. These include abdominal bloating, anxiety, constipation, diarrhea, depression, environmental sensitivities, fatigue, food sensitivities, fuzzy thinking, insomnia, low blood sugar, mood swings, PMS, recurring vaginal or bladder infections, ringing in the ears, and sensitivities to perfume, cigarettes, or fabric odors. C. albicans also affect the immure system, hormone balance, and the thought process.
C. albicans grow out of control when the friendly bacteria that keep them in check are destroyed. This can happen because of antibiotics, birth control pills, and steroid medications.
To control C. albicans, look first to your diet. Stop consuming dairy products (except yogurt), red and processed meats, yeast-based food such as breads and pastries, alcoholic beverages, dried fruits, mushrooms, and products containing sugar and vinegar. You should consume pre and probiotics (which are the food that feeds the friendly bacteria and the friendly bacteria themselves) and eat foods such as yogurt, which contain friendly bacteria. Certain foods and supplements can kill C. albicans. These include garlic and grapefruit seed extract.
According to a healthy lifestyle we will be healthy. The food you eat will effect your well being. Many diseases in humans are directly or indirectly caused by improper eating habits and malnutrition. These include, but are not limited to, deficiency diseases, caused by a lack of essential nutrients.
Additionally, several diseases are directly or indirectly impacted by dietary habits, and require very close attention to the nutrient content of food.
A extensive list of the highest content food sources of Vitamins. Minerals ,Amino acids and phyto chemicals can be found here.
In General to maintain digestive health avoid chemicals that are foreign to the body.
avoid aluminum in all forms it has been liked to skin conditions Alzheimers and arthritis.
Avoid storing moist foods in plastic containers as “phthalates” (plastic softeners) are carcinogenic.
Avoid processed and hydrogenated oils.
Drink plenty of good water.
Eat natures bounty in its season.
Engage in physical activity when ever possible.
Also know that much of the food we eat has been grown in depleted soil, much containing pesticides and insecticides. You will be much better off eating organically grown when you can.
Also be aware that “over-supplementation” is not the answer. There are many who take this that and the other thing and over burden their body with nutritional products that are beyond the bodies ability to assimilate, and this will burden your metabolism.
The magic word is Balance.
Our bodies are in a constant process of change. Cells die and new ones are born constantly. Daily we are facing a chemical assault from the environment, nutritional transgressions. Traumas stress and strains leave their imprint on and become imbedded in our body and mind. Negative emotions (frustrations, anger, fear and guilt) get incorporated into cellular memory and become illness, God forbid.
It is good to address each these issues with a “seasonal re-alignment”.
This can be accomplished by alignment of Skelatal symmetry through streaching, yoga and other types of body work.
Awareness of the onset of food allergies and environmental sensitivities. You may find something has become a irritant and you will need to change your diet.
Awareness of each system and major organs. You may need to drink a herbal tea to boost the organs performance.
“seasonal re-alignment”. is generally a 3 month recharge program to restore health strength and longevity.
This is only advice, consult your doctor concerning any medical problems
For educational purposes only
If you take dietary supplements, vitamins try to avoid those form which are synthetically manufactured. They are less Bio available.
Synthetic vitamins are made in a laboratory setting from coal tar derivatives.
A natural vitamin is a concentrated nutrient derived from a quality natural source. It is concentrated from its natural source as carefully as possible. No extreme heat, pressure, or possibly toxic solvents are used. There are no sugar or chemical tablet coatings. The nutrients are prepared from high quality raw ingredients. No artificial chemicals are added. Harsh binders and fillers do not hinder absorption.
Bioflavonoids always accompany Vitamin C in fruits and vegetables. In fact, the bioflavonoids are essential for better absorption. They increase bioavailability by 30%.
We have enough problems as it is achieving proper absorption of nutrients, because of destruction of our intestinal flora by “anti biotic therapy”
It’s a good idea to repopulate your intestinal tract with health-enhancing microorganisms including complexes of acidophilus and bifidus as found in yogurt.
If you have chronic indigestion your body may have a problem producing Hydrochloric Acid pepsin or other digestive enzymes. Supplements will help you with this problem.
Know sewage systems are clogged with undigested capsules and tablets.
Homeopathic supplements come in liquid form.
The cell salts are a therapeutic agent.
Their quick results are due to the fact that these minerals are taken in the blood better as they are absorbed through the mouth mucous membrane.
Cell Salts also called Tissue Salts are a group of homeopathic remedies made from minerals. There are 12 basic mineral or tissue cell salts in our bodies. Dr. Schüslerwho identified the 12 different salts in human tissue. Cell salts are important mineral constituents that are present in human cells. If an imbalance or deficiency of these salts at the cellular level were to occur, sickness may follow.
Stubborn health condition? Add Cell Salts to your health plan. Wanting faster results? Use the Cell Salt that matches your symptoms.
Minerals are the foundation for enzyme activity in the body and serve
as catalysts in energy cycles and functions. The body must first have minerals to make vitamins or make use of vitamins regardless of the source. Cell Salts are used in the basic
functioning of the cells including water balance, digestion, removing toxins,
elasticity of the cells, oxygenation, nutrition, sodium/potassium balance etc.
There are 12 basic Cell Salts:
3 Calcium minerals: Calcium Fluoride, Calcium Phos & Calcium Sulphate
3 Potassium minerals: Kali Mur, Kali Phosphate & Kali Sulphur
3 Sodium minerals: Natrum Phosphate, Natrum Sulphur & Natrum Mur
Plus: Ferrum Phosphate (iron); Magnesia Phosphate (magnesium); Silicea (silica);
The Calcium Cell Salts are important for bone and dental health, and skin healing.
Calcium Phosphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 2) is the Cell Salt for growth and health of the bones.
Deficiency symptoms include aching pains, growing pains, bone ailments. - disturbances in the bone metabolism
- disturbances of the muscle function
in addition, to vegetative disturbances:
- sleep disturbances,
- hot flushes,
- overexertion headache
Calcium Fluoride (Schuessler Cell Salts No 1) is the Cell Salt for problems with the surface of bones and skin. (Schuessler Cell Salts No 1) is present in the cells of the marrow in the bones, in tooth nerves and all flexible fibers.
A much safer source of fluoride than supplemental fluoride.
Deficiency symptoms include poor dental enamel; spider and varicose veins. - cornea/callosity formations,
- tears at the hands and lips,
- development of scalls,
- premature aging of the skin,
- hardens a seeing,
- volume weakness,
- hardening the blood vessels,
- turbidity of the eyepiece,
- organ lowerings,
- early formation of wrinkles
Calcium Sulphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 12) deficiency symptoms include acne and other skin problems,
slow healing wounds, abscesses, swollen glands, negativity, apathy.
The Potassium Cell Salts are important for emotional health.
Deficiency symptoms include nervousness, anxiety, mental confusion.
Potassium chloride or called Kali Mur (Schuessler Cell Salts No 4) deficiency symptoms include colds, sinus inflammation, It stands in close relationship with the connective tissue. Helps heal arthritis inflammation, lack of energy and interest, mucous membrane illnesses,
- coughs with mucus,
- chronic joint suffering,
- cold diseases after 3-4 days,
- stick cold,
- intestine and gastritides
Potassium phosphate or called Kali Phosphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 5) deficiency symptoms include anxiety, irritability.
poor memory and physical fatigue. It is present in brain cells, the nerves and the muscle cells. Helps heal arthritis inflammation, lack of energy and interest, mucous infections over 38.5 C (101.3 F),
- with muscle and nerve weakness,
- nervous diarrheas ,
- fear of place,
- general weakness,
- weakness of memory,
- changes in mood
Potassium sulphate or Kali Sulphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 6) corrects the functioning of oils in the body. Deficiency symptoms show up as dryness and in the later stages of inflammation including acne and
intestinal disorders. It is present in the upper skin cells and muscles. Mental symptoms include worry and lack of judgment.
It improves the oxygen supply, the cellulose change and the cellular elimination and decontamination procedures and helps with the evacuation of cinders.
Potassium sulphate has also a strong effect on the mucous membranes, it become chronic will given in the third inflammation stage not to let in order to lock an illness. Slimy or festering isolations of the mucous membranes, strong mucus of the bronchial tubes.
Potassium sulphate has a large relationship with the skin. Therefore it is taken with dander, eczema sickness, neurodermatitis. In addition, when inflammatory illnesses the joints, particularly if the pain moves, it can support the healing.
The 3 Sodium Cell Salts balance fluids and water in the body and support
the functioning of the kidneys, pancreas, stomach and digestive system.
Sodium chloride or Natrum Mur (Schuessler Cell Salts No 8) and/or common salt occurs in all body fluids and fabrics. Sodium chloratum regulates water absorption and delivery of cells. Ithelps with edema, headache, weakness in the sun or heat,chronic sinus conditions.
It adjusts the liquid and heat balance and has large purchase to the mucous membranes, the elimination organs and is important for all tissues with low floating such as cartilages, volume disks and eyepiece.
Natrum muriaticum (Cell Salts No 8) is the mineral salt for the liquid household.
Sodium chloride is contained in all body fluids and tissues. lt regulates the absorption and excretion of fluids of the cells. Disorders of the fluid metabolism show as a sensation of feeling cold along the spine, on hands and feet, a watery and puffed up face. lt is the mineral in cases of anaemia, involuntary flow of tears and excess saliva, watery rhinal catarrhs and rashes with blisters.
It heals hay fever
- flow cold,
- catarrh of the mucous membrane (paranasal sinuses, stomach intestinal mucosa)
- binding skin inflammations ,
- cooling sensitivity,
- edemas, for welding adjustment,
- head sheds,
- dry skin and mucous membranes ,
- disturbances in watering -und salivation
Sodium phosphate or Natrum Phosphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 9) is for complaints of the digestive system. Take right before
meals for improved digestion. Deficiency symptoms include acidity, indigestion. It is a component of the blood corpuscles, muscles, the nerve and brain cells as well as liquid fibre.
It supports the burn processes and energizes the metabolism. Because it works alkalinely, it binds for acid and provides thus for a reconciliation. By overacidification in the nutrition many humans have sodium phosphoricum lack. Thus it comes to the classical overacidification diseases.
Natrum phosphoricum (Cell Salt No 9) is the classical salt for the metabolism.
Sodium phosphate is a component of blood cells, the muscles, the nerve and brain cells as well as the tissue fluid. Dr Schuessler regarded this mineral as very important: in the carbonic acid exchange function of the blood in the lungs, in making uric acid soluble in the blood, in the process of breaking down fatty acids after consuming too much fat and in the excessive production of lactic acid. lt is furthermore the remedy in cases of rheumatism, sciatica, kidney infections and after too fatty foods. It helps in healing - heartburn (pyrosis),
- disturbances in the sugar and fat metabolism,
- container illnesses,
- badly welfare-end wounds and eczema,
- muscle spanning,
- acne with greasy skin
Sodium sulphate or Natrum Sulphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 10) for strengthening pancreatic functioning. Sodium sulphate has the ability of quickly excreting excessive tissue fluid accumulated with metabolic wastes, from the body.
It helps to adjust body fluids, it supports the elimination procedures and is therefore the most important means for decontamination and removal of slag.
The function and regeneration of the elimination organs affects such as liver, gallbladder, blister, large intestine, kidney. It heals - digesting disturbances (failure, blockage, stinking expulsion)
- skin diseases,
- joint illnesses,
- open leg or other ulcers
Natrum sulphuricum (Cell Salts No 10) is the salt for the elimination.
Sodium sulphate has the ability of quickly excreting excessive tissue fluid accumulated with metabolic wastes, from the body. This nutritional mineral increases the activity of kidneys and urinary bladder, influences the bowel activity, especially the large intestine, the liver and pancreas. It is used in cases of rhinitis, influenza, build-up of bile, liver problems, constipation, diarrhea, rheumatism, ulcers on the lower legs, kidney sand and dietary mistakes
Ferrum Phosphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 3): Iron is present in the blood and in the muscle cells. It is the oxygenating Cell Salt, so remember for physical fatigue. Useful for inflammation, fever, and infection concentration disturbances,
- easy fatigue ,
- inclination to inflammations,
- feverful common cold up to 38.0 C (100.4 F)
- rheumatism tables complaints
- cold diseases
With all injuries:
cutting and grazes,
- muscular strain
Magnesium Phosphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 7) is found inside the cells of muscles and nerves. Deficiency symptoms include muscle pain, muscle fatigue, muscle spasms. Magnesium phosphoricum is used as the “Hot 7”.
Magnesia phosphate belongs to the most important cousin-forming mineral materials and can work against an overacidification. Therefore it is an important basis means for prevention and for the treatment of chronic illnesses.
It heals muscular pains,
- cramp coughs,
- restess legs
Silicea (silica); (Schuessler Cell Salts No 11) is the hair and skin remedy. It is a component of the connective tissue, the marrow, the mucous membrane, the hair, the nails, the bone and nerves. Deficiency includes excess perspiration, unhealthy skin, brittle nails and hair.
It is used in cases of furuncles, fistulas, glandular septicemia, calcification of the arteries, dental ulcers, sty, bunion, itching skin, hair loss.
calcification of the arteries.
Calcium Phosphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 9) is the #1 mineral for bones. Important support for growing pains in youth. This Cell Salt helps with absorbtion of Calcium.
Helps solve the problem of hard to dissolve supplements and high Calcium blood levels, but low Calcium in the cells. Homeopathic Cell Salts are the ideal solution and so easy to take. Also remember for numbness in extremities, painful joints, tooth decay problems. Symptoms aggravated by cold, damp weather, stress.
Calcium Sulphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 12) occurs in the gall bladder and in the liver.
Calc Sulph is known as a blood purifier. Helps with cleansing toxins in the body. In the liver it helps in the removal of wastes. Indicated for abscesses, wounds and acne problems that don’t heal. Taken in early stages of colds and sore throats to prevent illnesses from worsening. Deficiency symptoms of Calc Sulph can be negativity, apathy, poor skin, teeth, swollen glands. Calc Sulp resembles Hepar Sulph, but acts deeper and can be used after Hepar Sulph.
It clarifies the Lymphe, supports the elimination of the dismantling products and decreases deposits of harmful materials in the organism. lt is used today in cases of suppurations and abcesses, rachitis, kidney and urinary tract infections.
Calcarea Sulphurica (Cell Salt No 12) is the most important cleaning agent and regeneration means
It has a special effect on the skin, the mucous membranes and the glands. Cleaning the mucous membranes, particularly with all festering processes, if a discharge is present. It energizes the metabolism, the new formation of the cells and promotes the healing. Heals cavity inflammation
- chronic bronchitits
- abscesses and fistulas.
Magnesium Phosphate (Schuessler Cell Salts No 7) is found inside the cells of muscles, nerves, bones, the brain and spine. Deficiency affects muscle fibers and nerve endings. This show the wisdon of using Magnesium Phosphate for muscle spasms in the back, and menstrual and leg cramps. Magnesium phosphoricum is used as the “Hot 7”.
Tissue salts are generally taken with a dosage of 1-
2 tablets 3-6 times daily for adults until the
condition is cured. In acute cases the remedy can
be taken 1 tablet every 5 minutes until relief.
Children under 12 years take 1-2 tablets every
hour in acute cases and for a chronic condition 1
tablet 3-4 times daily.
They should be taken 30min. before meals or 1
hour after and nicotine, alcohol and hot spices
should be avoided.
They can be taken individually or in combinations of
usually 2or 3 tissue salts.
After serious or long-term illness, the body is
often depleted in more than one tissue salts so it’s
not unusual to take several.
There is no harm in taking more than one at a time;
your body will excrete any surplus.
There are usually no side effects; but sometimes
symptoms get worse for a short period of time as
the remedies begins to work.
There a Homeopathic Remedy that will help my entire system?
Yes, Bioplasma supports the entire body and immune system. Bioplasma is a combination of 12 Cell Salts. Bioplasma can be taken daily to keep our health and energy at their best. Use Bioplasma before and after exercise to maintain electrolyte level. Use when stressed or starting to feel ill or out of balance. Bioplasma is useful for family use, for pets and farm animals for general health care and healing.
Bioplasma is a remedy in itself. It keeps the minerals in balance &
can be taken daily to keep energy levels high, boost the immune system,
and keep your physical performance at its best.
As a rule it is not good to continue the same supplement for more than 3 months at a time, with the exception of anti oxidants.

So too you Body
Take care of it !
You can’t afford to brake down on the side of the road
Here are some very important things you need to know so to live long and be healthy
You need to emphasize healthy eating and avoiding harmful components in food. A consideration of healthy eating is learning what ingredients to avoid.
Harmful additives in your food destroy your health.
Yes, these food additives, common in most packaged foods
Many causes of death and disease are preventable
1.) Sodium Nitrite – Sodium Nitrite is a preservative that is usually present in salami, pepperoni, ham, bacon, hot dogs and other forms of processed meats. The reason why Sodium Nitrite is added to meats is because it preserves the red/pinkish color of the meat and gives it a fresh appearance, and also prevents botulism to some extent.
However when ingested in large amounts, sodium nitrite reacts with the stomach acids to produce nitrosamines, the main cause for cancer amongst animals.
Sodium nitrite consumption is also known to trigger migraine pains, and COPD form of lung diseases. Non-red meats such as chicken, tuna are comparatively safer as they do not have nitrates in them.
WHITE SUGAR and HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP
The average American consumes 150 pounds of sugar a year compared to the 12 pounds consumed in the early 1800s.
Becoming obese is just one of the many side-effects of consuming too many carbohydrates in the form of sugar. Sugar adversely effects the body’s immune system, cardiovascular system, and blood pressure; it contributes to kidney stones and failure, learning disabilities, diverticulosis, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, candida, anxiety, hyperactivity in children, dental cavities, adult-onset diabetes, atherosclerosis, and countless others.
High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a sweet syrupy liquid which is cheaper and easier for many companies to use than sugar.
TRANS-FAT - HYDROGENATED - PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL
trans fatty acids (hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils) have been liked to diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease (even low levels of trans fats in the diet — a mere 1-2% of calories per day — were linked to a substantially increased risk of heart disease). Several large studies indicate a strong link between shortened life and consumption of high amounts of trans-fat. They also decrease the desirable HDL cholesterol levels. The net effect of trans fats is double that of saturated fatty acids.
Hydrogenation results in a residue of toxic metals, usually nickel and aluminum, which are left behind in the finished product. These metals are used as catalysts in the reaction, but they accumulate in our cells and nervous system where they poison enzyme systems and alter cellular functions, endangering health and causing a wide variety of problems.
Do not fry or sauté with ”polyunsaturated” light oils
Any ‘food that lists hydrogenated” or ”partially hydrogenated” on the label contains trans-fats and should be avoided. Avoid products containing cottonseed oil. Cotton is not considered a food crop and is heavily sprayed with highly toxic pesticides — some of which wind up in the oil. Do not fry or sauté with “polyunsaturated” light oils such as safflower, sunflower or corn oils. They oxidize readily into damaging free radicals at high temperatures.
Organic flaxseed oil has the highest concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. Use butter instead of margarine or shortening in cooking.
Manufacturers have created non-hydrogenated margarine, which is now widely available. Non-hydrogenated margarine contains no trans fat, and it’s softer than the first-generation margarine stick. If you’re going to eat margarine, CHOOSE SOFT MARGARINE. Here are some brands of “cholesterol-lowering” spread: * Becel * Benecol * Blue Bonnet Soft Spread * Canola Harvest Non-Hydrogenated * I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter * Promise * Smart Balance Light.
Excitotoxins – Excitotoxins are basically amino acids that also function as neurotransmitters in the brain. But when brain cells are exposed to this chemical in large amounts (through dietary consumption), they become over-excited. During this stage, the nerve and brain cells fire their impulses rapidly until they reach extreme exhaustion, a near-death state.
Commonly found in canned soups, diet soda, sausages, salad dressing and processed vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods. Excitotoxins are used as a flavoring agent in most such foods, but an over-dose of it can destroy the nerve cells. Since the protective enzymes in a baby’s brain are not fully developed, they are unable to detoxify the Excitotoxins that enter its brain. This is why pregnant women and young children should completely avoid foods containing even small amount of Excitotoxins.
The two most common forms of Excitotoxins are – Mono Sodium Glutamate (MSG) and Aspartate.
MSG triples the amount of insulin the pancreas creates, causing rats (and humans) to become obese. It can also cause brain damage in your children, and that this chemical could effect how your children’s nervous systems formed during development so that in later years they may have learning or emotional difficulties. It’s crazy that FDA has set no limits on how much of it can be added to food.Many items that don’t have MSG listed often have something called Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, which is just another name for Monosodium Glutamate. Large amounts of processed MSG fed to infant mice destroyed brain nerve cells. Food Additives that ALWAYS contain MSG * Monosodium Glutamate, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Hydrolyzed Protein, Hydrolyzed Plant Protein, Plant Protein Extract, Sodium Caseinate, Calcium Caseinate, Yeast Autolysate & Extract, Brewer’s & Nutritinal Yeast, Textured Protein (Including TVP), Autolyzed Yeast, Hydrolyzed Oat Flour, Corn Oil.
Remember also that the powerful excitotoxins, aspartate and L-cystine, are frequently added to foods and according to FDA rules require NO LABELING AT ALL.
Aspartate is another excitotoxin that is widely used as an artificial sweetener in soft drinks, cereals, ice creams and so on. Aspartame (pre-cursor to aspartate) is known to cause various neuropsychiatric disorders such as panic attacks, mood swings, dizziness, blackouts .
Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers aspartame safe, some scientists believe this the most dangerous substance added to foods. Aspartame accounts for over 75 percent of the adverse reactions to food additives reported to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Many of these reactions are very serious including seizures and death as recently disclosed in a February 1994 Department of Health and Human Services report.
Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is a sugar alcohol the body metabolises slowly. Sorbitol is a sugar substitute often used in diet foods (including diet drinks and ice cream) and sugar-free chewing gum. Sorbitol can be used as a non-stimulant laxative by either in oral suspension or suppository form. The drug works by drawing water into the large intestine, thereby stimulating bowel movements. Ingesting large amounts of sorbitol can lead to some abdominal pain, gas, and mild to severe diarrhea. Sorbitol can also aggravate irritable bowel syndrome and fructose malabsorption. And an excessive chewing gum habit can cause severe illness and weight loss, researchers warn (11/01/2008). Doctors found that two patients who suffered diarrhea, malnutrition and weight loss chewed up to 20 sticks of gum a day containing sorbitol
What Is SPLENDA?
Although Splenda, aka sucralose, is advertised as “Made from sugar,” Splenda is not natural - it is a synthesized chemical composed of one molecule of sugar, where three hydroxyl groups are replaced with chlorine. Chlorination makes the sugar in Splenda unavailable to digestive enzymes - hence no calories. Not a single long-term clinical study was conducted prior to gaining FDA’s approval of sucraose as a food additive.
NATURAL & ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS
By the way, a natural flavor is not necessarily more healthful or purer than an artificial one. When almond flavor – benzaldehyde – is derived from natural sources, such as peach and apricot pits, it contains traces of hydrogen cyanide, a deadly poison.
Adding methyl-2-pyridyl ketone makes something taste like popcorn. Adding ethyl-3-hydroxy butanoate makes it taste like marshmallow. And Ethyl-2-methyl butyrate smells just like an apple.The possibilities are now almost limitless. They are all synthesized chemicals that don’t even have common names, but do you recognize some components? Yes, most artificial flavorings are derived from petroleum, and many are volatile. They may affect RNA, thyroid, and enzymes, unbelievably, most have not been studied for safety or toxicity.
A typical artificial strawberry flavor, for example found in Burger King’s strawberry milk shake, contains a veritable cocktail of chemicals: amyl acetate, amyl butyrate, amyl valerate, anethol, anisyl formate, benzyl acetate, benzyl isobutyrate, butyric acid, cinnamyl isobutyrate, cinnamyl valerate, cognac essential oil, diacetyl, dipropyl ketone, ethyl acetate, ethyl amyl ketone, ethyl butyrate, ethyl cinnamate, ethyl heptanoate, ethyl heptylate, ethyl lactate, ethyl methylphenylglycidate, ethyl nitrate, ethyl propionate, ethyl valerate, heliotropin, hydroxyphenyl-2-butanone (10 percent solution in alcohol), a-ionone, isobutyl anthranilate, isobutyl butyrate, lemon essential oil, maltol, 4-methylacetophenone, methyl anthranilate, methyl benzoate, methyl cinnamate, methyl heptine carbonate, methyl naphthyl ketone, methyl salicylate, mint essential oil, neroli essential oil, nerolin, neryl isobutyrate, orris butter, phenethyl alcohol, rose, rum ether, g-undecalactone, vanillin, and solvent.
BHA and BHT – Butylated Hydroxyanisole (BHA) and Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT) are used to preserve fats and inhibit the formation of yeast. Food products such as butter, chips, beer, cereals, dehydrated potatoes, meats etc contain BHT and BHA. Both BHA and BHT are antioxidants that oxidize the fats, thereby protecting the food products from going rancid.
However, ingesting these preservatives can cause serious health problems. BHT and BHA are known to cause metabolic stress, weight loss, liver damage, growth retardation and fetal abnormalities. These are also the cause of hyperactivity and other behavioral disorders in children.
Anecdotal reports suggest that BHA and BHT can increase the risk of cancer (suspected carcinogens) and get accumulated in body tissues causing several health problems. These are also known to cause liver enlargement and cell retardation. Up to 13% of BHT is absorbed by the skin, which can result in contact dermatitis and other skin problems.
You’ll also find ”artificial colour” in just about every processed food
Food colouring serves many of the same decorative purposes as lipstick, eye shadow, mascara - and is often made from the same pigments. Titanium dioxide, for example, has proved to be an especially versatile mineral. It gives many processed sweets, frostings and icings their bright white colour; it is a common ingredient in women’s cosmetics; and it is the pigment used in many white oil paints and house paints.
On June 4, 2008, the nonprofit watchdog group the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has petitioned the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ban the artificial food colourings it refers to as the ”secret shame” of the food and industry and its regulators. The dyes at issue are Yellow 5 and 6, Red 40 and 3, Blue 1 and 2, Green 3 and Orange B. The CSPI said the UK had already banned some of these.
SODIUM / SALT
We don’t know exactly how salt works to elevate blood pressure. But the best guess is that too much salt causes the sodium channels (structures that move sodium into and out of cells) to work too hard and gradually the channels begin to fail. This process is irreversible, so that by old age, even if people cut back on salt, their kidneys can no longer flush extra amounts of salt from the body without an increase in blood pressure. Salt may also be linked to other health problems such as aggravating asthma, gastric cancer, and kidney stones.
Table salt is 40% sodium; 1 teaspoon of table salt contains 2,300 mg of sodium. The National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences recommends 1,200 to 1,500 mg of sodium each day for adults. Persons with high blood pressure should have no more than 2,300 mg of sodium a day. Those with congestive heart failure, liver cirrhosis, and kidney disease may need much lower amounts.

Phytochemicals are non-nutritive plant chemicals that have protective or disease preventive properties. There are more than thousand known phytochemicals. They can protect humans against diseases. Some of the well-known phytochemicals are lycopene in tomatoes, isoflavones in soy and flavanoids in fruits. They are not essential nutrients and are not required by the human body for sustaining life. I list a few very important phytochemicals below.
The long-chain omega-3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) have a multitude of health benefits, including increased fat burning and improved glucose metabolism. They are found in High concentrations in Salmon, Mackerel and other oily fish.
Be careful, however, if you consume large amounts of fish, as you may be unwittingly ingesting large amounts of mercury, a kidney toxin that is found in high amounts in fish such as swordfish, shark, and even tuna.
Bioflavonoids like quercetin, resveratrol, and olive polyphenols have natural anti-inflammatory properties and may offer protection against metabolic syndrome.
Quercetin, a potent bioflavonoid found in vegetables, inhibits pro-inflammatory cytokines (proteins involved in immunity and inflammation). Resveratrol, found in the skin of red fruits like grapes, has been shown to inhibit the expression of genes involved in inflammation better than the potent prescription corticosteroid dexamethasone.
Green tea is a super-nutrient., long known about the anti-cancer benefits of green tea rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Green tea also has valuable metabolic advantages. Green tea promotes healthy blood sugar (glucose) metabolism. Green tea rich in EGCG enhances insulin action instead of promoting insulin release. Furthermore, green tea and EGCG reduce fat cell creation and growth, as well as blood levels of triglycerides and cholesterol..
Olive polyphenols have beneficial benefits on the cardiovascular system. Studies show that olive polyphenols dramatically increase the resistance of cholesterol to oxidation. This is very important, as oxidized cholesterol serves as a trigger for atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Olive polyphenols also benefit the vascular endothelium, the lining of blood vessel walls. Hydroxytyrosol, a principal polyphenol in olives, reduces the “stickiness” of cells in the vascular endothelium. Cell “stickiness” may increase the tendency to form blood clots in the arteries.
Carotenoids and retinoids. Carotenoids (found in foods like carrots, squash, and tomatoes) and retinoids, which are beneficial to eye health, also play an important role in preventing disease.
Coffee polyphenols- your coffee consumption, the lower your risk of metabolic disease, including type II diabetes. But one must be careful with Coffee as it can induce high blood pressure in some people, largely due to its caffeine content. Also results of the 2004 ATTICA study showed that coffee consumption dramatically increases markers of inflammation. Like with everything moderation is recommended.
If you want to live long and healty decreasing your body fat—particularly around your waist—is critically important. Avoid fad diets, eat a whole-food diet like those consumed by Mediterranean cultures, and get some physical exercise—your body will thank you for it!

Kinesiologists are involved in the rehabilitation, prevention, and management of disorders to maintain, rehabilitate, or enhance movement, function of human motor performance.
The bodily motion utilized from physical motion sets the rhythm for the organs in the body.
Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a chiropractic diagnostic method using manual muscle-strength testing for medical diagnosis and a subsequent determination of prescribed therapy. A manual muscle test in AK is conducted by having the patient resist using the target muscle or muscle group while the practitioner applies a force. A smooth response is sometimes referred to as a ”strong muscle” and a response that was not appropriate is sometimes called a ”weak response”. This is not a raw test of strength, but rather a subjective evaluation of tension in the muscle and smoothness of response, taken to be indicative of stresses and imbalances in the body. A weak muscle test is equated to dysfunction and chemical or structural imbalance or mental stress, indicative of a body dissatisfied with suboptimal functioning. The most common test is the arm-pull-down test, or ”Delta test,” where the patient resists as the practitioner exerts a downward force on an extended arm.Proper positioning is paramount to ensure that the muscle in question is the prime mover, minimizing interference from adjacent muscle groups.
“Nutrient testing” is used to examine the response of various of a patient’s muscles to assorted chemicals. Gustatory and olfactory stimulation are said to alter the outcome of a manual muscle test, with previously weak muscles being strengthened by application of the correct nutritional supplement, and previously strong muscles being weakened by exposure to harmful or imbalancing substances or allergens.
Applied kinesiology is a system that evaluates structural, chemical, and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing alongside conventional diagnostic methods. The essential premise of applied kinesiology that is not shared by mainstream medical theory is that every organ dysfunction is accompanied by a weakness in a specific corresponding muscle, the viscerosomatic relationship.
Treatment modalities relied upon by practitioners include joint manipulation and mobilization, myofascial, cranial and meridian therapies, clinical nutrition, and dietary counseling.

Discover Your Food Allergies At Home
The following test can be used to identify any allergy or sensitivity you may have to a food, drink, inhalant, substance or just anything. It is called The Pulse Test and it is just as accurate as any medical testing for allergies. Identifying allergens is important when your body is sick or weak because the body requires much more energy to break down substances that cannot be digested or metabolized (which is what creates an allergen). Any type of skin complaint or scalloped tongue (teeth marks around the edges) are signs that you may need to check for allergens. There are three basic steps to your allergy test:
1 Take your pulse. |
2 Consume or expose yourself to the questionable item or substance (if it’s an inhaled toxin or allergen, expose yourself for 10 minutes).
3 Wait five minutes, and retake your pulse.
After the five-minute wait, if your pulse is 12 beats or more higher than it was before you exposed yourself to the item or substance, you have an allergy or sensitivity to that item. Sensitivity means your body is reacting on a metabolic level that has no visible proof. Obviously, do not run or do anything that might contribute to a pulse variation while conducting this test.
WHAT IS THE POTENTIAL FOR THE BODY TO HEAL ITSELF?
According to medical science, the human body completely renews itself every 7 years!
The cornea replaces itself every 24 hours,
the skin every 14 days,
