Why we are we so sick and what we can do about it!

Sep 25

As I continually elude to on my site, I strongly feel that we live in a toxic world.  And I believe that a build up of these toxins in our bodies over a period of time is the MAIN REASON for all of the illness and disease that we are faced with in our society today.  The good news is that we can all do something about it by staying informed and demanding that these toxins be removed from our environment. One of my main focuses in my blogs and pages on this site is what I consider to be the largest science experiment ever conducted on mankind without its consent.  That is the advent of GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms) into our crops and our overall food supply.  We live in a nation that does not require the labeling of GMO’s and actually protects the companies that have forced them into our food supply without any independent testing as to their safety.  The consequences for this are being played out before our eyes with devastating health consequences. Change.org has recently drafted a petition to be submitted to various officials from the UN, the Commission on Human Rights, and the International Criminal Court that demands that this science experiment end, and that we restore our rights to a healthy and accessible  food supply for all.   If you care about your health and the health of your children, PLEASE TAKE ONE MINUTE OF YOUR TIME TO SIGN THIS PETITION AT  THIS LINK.  The following is what’s outlined in that petition: We, the free-born people of the world, demand to live in a world free of poisonous food. We refuse to be part of Monsanto’s crimes against humanity and do whole-heartedly object to Monsanto’s activities! Article 11 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights put forth by the United Nations states that EVERYONE has the right to adequate food and to be free from hunger. Article 12 recognizes the right of EVERYONE to enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health. Monsanto’s activities are direct violation of these Articles and furthermore exploits Article 11: 2a and 2b for financial profit cloaking their company as utilizing progressive technologies to end...

Doctors Admit Our Medical System Is Ailing

Sep 08

The August 30th edition of the Wall Street Journal ran a piece titled, “Our Ailing Medical System” recently that caught my eye.  The great thing about this article was that it was written by a doctor sharing fellow doctor’s points of view about the direction that our country’s health care system is headed in.  While those of us in the health and wellness industry, especially someone like me who’s spent the last two years of my life submerged in it have shared these sentiments over and over, it is good to hear it from a doctor’s point of view.  So what did they have to share?  Here are some of the more telling excerpts: In a 2008 survey of 12,000 physicians, only 6% described their morale as positive!  Now I don’t know about you, but if I find myself in situation where my life hangs in the balance, I’m pretty sure I’d like to be treated by someone who actually enjoys getting out of their bed in the morning and saving their patients.  Nearly half said they planned to reduce the number of patients they would see in the next three years or stop practicing altogether.  This is scary considering the fact that we are getting more sick as a nation with every passing year, and will need many more doctors, not less. Many doctors were quoted as saying that their job had become only that – a job.  Consider what one doctor had to say on a recent survey of more than 270,000 physicians: “I wouldn’t do it again.  I feel like a pawn in a moneymaking game for hospital administrators.  There are so many other ways I could have made a living and been more fulfilled.  The sad part is we chose medicine because we thought it was worthwhile and noble, but from what I have seen in my short career, it is a charade.” One reason for the discontent among physicians is that they simply don’t have enough time to spend with their patients to properly treat symptoms.The bureaucracy of the U.S. medical system has our doctors spending almost an hour on average each day, and $83,000 per year dealing with paperwork of insurance companies.  The...

The most important health discovery of the century for cancer and more!

Aug 27

If you or someone you know and love is faced with cancer or another life threatening or debilitating illness, and the information shared here and on our cancer page connects with you, please reach out to us through our contact page to learn more about how to implement this strategy as our family did.  It’s been said that the most powerful weapons that a cancer patient possesses in their fight are information and an open mind.  Unfortunately, we along with nearly all new patients diagnosed with cancer didn’t have a chance to use these weapons.  I think back to sitting in the oncologist’s office when my wife was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in October of 2012, and in a neurologist’s office for my son’s glioma (brain tumor) diagnosis in July of 2013, and having the fear of God put into us.  There is no time for gathering information and keeping an open mind to alternative treatments when dealing with the medical establishement.  Their answer is “immediately start our prescribed treatment plan, or certain death awaits”.  After the initial shock of hearing this, we immediately began treatment as nearly everyone who has the shock of hearing “you have cancer” does. That treatment plan will consist of either chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation, but most likely a combination of more than one of these options.  Throughout my wife’s brutal battle including all three of these and two prolonged hospital stays, followed by watching my son nearly lose his life to chemotherapy and then losing half of his eyesight from surgery, the fear of losing them led to hundreds of hours researching these three chosen modalities of the cancer industry in great detail.  Here’s what I’ve gathered after doing so. First, I believe that the cancer industry’s understanding of the disease and how to attack it is misguided.  The proliferation of cancer in the body is not something to “be attacked”, but a warning sign put out by the body that something is wrong and needs to be addressed.  It’s typically a build up of toxins after a severe drop in our immune systems.  This can be brought on by a variety of issues including continually eating the wrong foods, using...

Helpful Tips For Nutritious Eating

Jul 21

Do you want to have a nutritious diet, but don’t know how? Some people don’t know how to handle nutrition because they are not educated on the topic. Education is key and it is up to each person to find the information that they need. Nutrition This concept involves sneaking nutritious foods into your current meals. This is especially helpful for picky eaters or finicky children, but sneaking in healthy ingredients will work for you, too. You can do this by perhaps sneaking 1/2 cup of some white beans or coconut flour into something you bake, such as cakes and cookies. You will all eat more nutritiously, and no one has to know. Getting off the junk food requires some serious dedication, but it sure makes people feel good when they succeed and start getting healthy. Habits that you have had for a long time are difficult to break because you have become accustom to the taste of those foods that are bad for you. If you have such an addiction, you’ll probably keep craving junk for a long time after cutting them from your diet. These cravings can be defeated by healthy substitutions. You don’t need to eliminate all treats, but you can limit unhealthy ones and find a new nutritious favorites. Eat some fruit instead of a chocolate bar, for example. An indulgence here and there won’t hurt. During pregnancy, it is important to ensure that there is plenty of vitamin B12 in the foods you consume. Vitamin B12 is known for reducing the chance of birth defects. Most people do not need to worry about vitamin B-12 deficiency, however, women who are strict dieters should be sure to get enough. Take the time to find new ways of cooking with recipes that are healthy and fun to make. When you experiment with new cuisine, it promotes a healthy variety of options and it prevents a diet from turning into a dull routine. This is the easiest way to make eating healthy interesting rather than something you do because you have to. Expanding your idea of salads is an awesome way to get better nutrition. Salads are not just lettuce with some dressing. You can throw practically...

The Media Working With Monsanto To Keep Us In The Dark

Jun 12

What would you say if I told you that powerful entities were working behind the scenes to deny their citizens the right to know about facts that could lead to getting a disease and possibly dying?  You would say that I must be talking about someplace like a communist country or dictatorship someplace else in the world, right?  Well, unfortunately, we’re talking about this happening right here in the good old US of A.  And it’s leading to cancer numbers that are skyrocketing in our country. As many of my readers know, I’m not here to hold back the truth when it comes to what really causes disease in our country after having to come face to face with breast cancer and a brain tumor in my family within one year.  Sometimes I feel like I need to shake things up if people are going to start paying attention.  Well if the 10 minute video shared in this post doesn’t demonstrate that it’s completely up to you to do your homework on the food supply in our country, and how it’s leading to the spike we’re seeing in diseases, then I don’t know what will. The fact that things like Posilac, otherwise known as RBGH can make it’s way into something as widely consumed as milk in our nation, then be lied about, and then censored when a news team actually finds out the truth about it, should scare you.  Well that’s exactly what happened, and it doesn’t just happen with things like Posilac.  You can say the same thing happens with things like aspartame, GMO corn and soy, and on and on.  The fact is that corporations like Monsanto stand to lose everything if we find out about what’s really in our food supply, and they’ll do ANYTHING to keep you from learning about it. They have demonstrated this time and again by doing things like getting the “Monsanto Protection Act” passed into law by burying it in legislation that has nothing to do with it, or by spending millions to run misleading ads against bills that would offer labeling that shares what’s in our food supply.  Well how about killing stories before they can make it on...

Break The Drug Cycle With Safe, Natural Treatments

May 21

  When it comes to resolving medical concerns PRIOR to Deb and Kyle’s diagnosis’, we were pretty much like the typical family.  Have a scratchy throat that won’t go away? Go to the doctor.  Feel an infection coming on?  Get some antibiotics.  Cholesterol getting high?  Take the prescription meds that your doctor prescribes you.  Suffering from digestive problems?  Take another prescription that the doctor prescribes.  Child can’t stay still and focus in class?  Write a prescription for the latest ADHD med.  And the list goes on and on.  The unfortunate reality in our country today is that our collective health has been on the steady decline for years, and more and more prescriptions are being written to remedy the situation, many with harmful side effects as you hear mentioned on those oh so prevalent commercials these days.  If you need proof, consider that we make up 5% of the world’s population and take over 50% of it’s drugs!  A sad statement to say the least.   What we need to realize is that many of the same things that we face today have been experienced and treated by people successfully for thousands of years using homeopathic remedies.  As many of you reading already know, I started this website to focus on what CAUSES  illness and disease in the first place, not to focus on profitable treatments that the medical industry would prescribe in the event that you fall ill.  In a nutshell, the more that you can avoid toxins from a variety of sources, and the higher that you can build your immunity through healthy food and the right supplements, the less chance you have of facing some of the things mentioned above in the first place.   Our family has chosen to become PROACTIVE when it comes to our health by sharing the strategies that we do on this site.  But even the healthiest among us will run into illnesses or disease from time to time.  When that is the case for our family, we now try to always find a homeopathic solution FIRST before resorting to traditional means.   I would like to share with you five different strategies that we’ve implemented in doing so.   The first strategy...

A Video All Parents Should Watch

May 12

For the sake of your children and their health, this could be one of the most important videos that any parent could watch: The best thing that can be said after watching that video is that the food that we choose to eat can either hurt us, or sustain us.  Seeing how it effects the youngest among us in particular strikes a chord with me.  After having spent months going in and out pediatric oncology clinics with my son both here in Chicago and at Mayo Clinic, it’s become a passion of mine to educate parents on just how harmful our food in this country can be.  It should not be taken lightly how all manner of foods can impact the health of our children. While I won’t go into all of the foods that we should be avoiding and incorporating in this blog, I would suggest that you opt in to this site if you haven’t already, and you’ll receive a series of emails that focuses on the six areas that my family has changed when it comes to protecting our health after facing cancer and a brain tumor  within one year.  Food is a huge part of the equation.  Another suggestion I’ll make is to go see the movie “Fed Up” that is in limited release now, but should be going nationwide soon.  It will give you an eye opening look at what we’re up against as a nation when it comes to keeping our kids healthy. Another way to stay informed as to how to eat healthy and what to avoid is by following us at our True Wellness Knowledge Facebook fan page.   And lastly, while we’re never going to be able to avoid all of the pitfalls associated with our food system in this country, there is a way to protect our Children’s immune systems, and that’s with Juice Plus.  The best part is, children are FREE with every paying adult.  It’s the way we ensure that our boys stay healthy despite an imperfect food system.  Click the link on the side to learn more, or reach out to us on the contact page.  Our goal is to help turn this situation around that we...
