Many people with Fibromyalgia suffer from stomach pain but a large number of the general population also suffer with major digestive problems with symptoms anywhere from bloating, indigestion, gas, acid reflux, diarrhea, constipation and pain throughout the digestive system.

There are numerous over the counter and prescription pills for stomach pain but do any really work and what organ damage or side effects are you trading off for? All for a food that isn’t right for your body anyways.

If they really solved the problem, we wouldn’t be seeing monthly prescriptions repeated for infinity or the over the counter remedy we throw in with our weekly groceries. Does anyone ever read the side effects of those products?

In my world, I find the cause of the upset and eliminate it. Growing up as a child, I thought it was normal to have a stomach ache. Now I know it can go away by eliminating certain foods and without drugs.

If you suffer from stomach pain, I would really think about eliminating foods from your diet that can cause these symptoms. Likely culprits would be dairy, wheat, sugar, fried foods and preservatives such as aspartame and MSG. Each on of these are so far spread into our food chain it is a difficult task and takes a lot of persistence to find all the products that have these ingredients.

If it is diarrhea you should consider milk or wheat first but eliminate one at a time. Removing dairy will remove symptoms rather quickly, wheat would take months for your small intestines to heal so you wouldn’t know right away but you should see some relief in your tummy from eliminating it.

Wheat is the hardest to eliminate because it is so widespread into everything nowadays, it is even in liquorice, soy sauces and margarine. It is really worth the sacrifice if you suffer from severe stomach pain.

Lactose Intolerance

As soon as I was diagnosed as lactose intolerant, we discovered that my mother and many of her family were also lactose intolerant and just suffered from the symptoms all their life. How sad is that? Makes me wonder what their doctors were thinking? Some symptoms:

                                     – diarrhea

                                     – stomach pain 

                                     – abdominal bloating

                                     – gas, bloating

Personally, I believe my cysts were caused from consuming dairy products. I lost my ovary at 18 due to a cyst, I was given the Lupron for a cyst and have had other cysts as well. It gives me mucous in my stools, throat, nose and eyes.

I read once that we are not meant to drink milk other than at birth. A mother’s milk has a purpose; for growth and immunity for babies. Then whether it is human, cattle or monkeys, they all move on to food.

The book of blood types says that dairy causes mucous in the A blood type body. I am A blood type and it is true for me. I think the mucous contributes to arthritic conditions and inflammation in the body as well. The more I consume the more I have pain and digestive problems.

You can use Lactaid pills that will help with the bloating, gas and diarrhea but I find they don’t work that well, you still get the mucous and it still wrecks havoc on your digestive system so it just isn’t worth it to me. It takes my body days to weeks to re-coop if I do consume it.

There is life after dairy by the way! Everyone says they would die without dairy or flour. I have discovered a new world of cooking and eating that is rather tasty. When you get away from it for a long time, you find it really doesn’t taste that great and it is very sweet because most dairy is loaded with sugar, dyes, aspartame and chemicals so I am not really missing out on anything after all.

What a hoot! That planet fitness commercial makes me laugh every time I see it. The big, dumb looking body builder in his short, shorts with his 3 liter jug of juice saying over and over………

I lift things up and put them down.

I lift things up and put them down.

I lift things up and put them down.

I lift things up and put them down.

As they escort him out the back door……

Hmmm, too much steroids or too much genetically modified soy protein isolate? LOL

You know, it doesn’t matter what it is that makes you laugh, make sure you do it everyday. It releases endorphins, those feel good hormones and we need a burst of them everyday!

Seriously though, most body builders take some form of that protein with soy protein isolate. The problem is that most of it is genetically modified or GMO  which has been shown to cause erectile dysfunction, hormonal disturbance, infertility and loss of libido in women as well as many other symptoms. Kind of ironic isn’t it? Trying to build a hard, sexy body meanwhile it is robbing you of your sexual well being.

Why do they allow these products on the market if they are harming us? Soy is good if it is organic, just make sure you are buying from a source you can trust. GMO foods not only jeopardize human health but also our environment, organic farming and animals.

I try to find the best products and the best prices for you.

If you are looking for pure, natural and organic body building proteins you can trust, click on the link below and put proteins in the search. This is the best price so far that I have found so far, but will continue to search.

For serious body builders, the Capra Double Bonded Protein sound like a good product, is gluten free, GMO free. I would think the Sun Warriors protein would be a good product too. I haven’t tried the body building products because I just exercise to firm not build, I am chick not a dude. : ) I can buy my chia seeds and have them delivered cheaper than I can buy them here though. We Canadians do have to pay a duty fee on the order which puts the price up for us.

 

Here are some articles I wrote on the effects of genetically modified foods. It is worth checking them out:

Here is a study that shows the benefits of fish oil helping cancer patients maintain or improve muscle mass. What I found very interesting is that it said that muscle loss in cancer is partly due to the inflammation.

Albert Einstein

Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.

I love Albert! Land of the free? I am glad I live in Canada although what the US does effects us all, especially the FDA and the US government. Who is overseeing their decisions by the way? We need world government!

I am in awe that it has come to this. The government wants to control your chemical intake through food, drugs, inoculations, cosmetics, personal grooming and skin care. Not to mention the chemicals that are sprayed on the ground, in the air or in your home as paint or cleaning products. Now they want to control your right to natural information. Will they not stop until there isn’t a natural product or green spot left on earth?

I don’t think Mike Adams is too far off with his zombie videos. This is serious folks and we need to step up and take action before it is too late. Our children need us to protect their future.

Over 75 websites were seized and shut down last week, and there is no indication that the government will stop such efforts.

Government could shut down alternative health websites

Where is all this going? Today the U.S. government is targeting websites focused on copyright violations, but if the public tolerates this government-sponsored censorship of the web, it’s only a matter of time before these government powers are expanded to control the content of the internet.

The lyrics reveal the truth about dangers of vaccines

Here are some of the lyrics to “Vaccine Zombie”:

Standin’ in line for the vaccine shot
Hope I get mine cause believe it or not
I think I might die less I take what they got
My brain’s too fried so I give it no thought, no thought

Cause the FDA said it’s safe for me
The drug companies claim that it’s made for me
And the government, they gonna pay for me
It’s not too late for me, is it?

Now it’s my turn to be injected.
They say it’s gonna hurt but I’ll be protected.
When they give the word I do as I’m directed.
I’m not the kind of person to do something unexpected

I do everything the doctors tell me
Swallow all those pills they sell me
I’m afraid that germs might kill me!
Vaccine zombie, zombie

I forgot how to think for myself
I don’t understand a thing about health
I do the same as everyone else
I’m a vaccine zombie, zombie

Great studies that are thrown on the back burner.

Micronutrients and genomic stability: a new

paradigm for recommended dietary allowances

(RDAs).

Fenech M.

CSIRO Health Sciences and Nutrition, PO Box 10041, Gouger Street, BC, SA, 5000, Adelaide, Australia. michael.fenech@hsn.csiro.au

Abstract

Diet as a key factor in determining genomic stability is more important than previously imagined because we now know that it impacts on all relevant pathways, namely exposure to dietary carcinogens, activation/detoxification of carcinogens, DNA repair, DNA synthesis and apoptosis. Current recommended dietary allowances for vitamins and minerals are based largely on the prevention of diseases of deficiency such as scurvy in the case of vitamin C. Because diseases of development, degenerative disease and aging itself are partly caused by damage to DNA it seems logical that we should focus better our attention on defining optimal requirements of key minerals and vitamins for preventing damage to both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA. To date, our knowledge on optimal micronutrient levels for genomic stability is scanty and disorganised. However, there is already sufficient evidence to suggest that marginal deficiencies in folate, vitamin B12, niacin and zinc impact significantly on spontaneous chromosome damage rate. The recent data for folate and vitamin B12 in humans with respect to micronucleus formation in blood and epithelial cells provide compelling evidence of the important role of these micronutrients in maintenance of genome integrity and the need to revise current RDAs for these micronutrients based on minimisation of DNA damage. Appropriately designed in vitro studies and in vivo placebo controlled trials with dose responses using a complementary array of DNA damage biomarkers are required to define recommended dietary allowances for genomic stability. Furthermore these studies would have to be targeted to individuals with common genetic polymorphisms that alter the bioavailability of specific micronutrients and the affinity of specific key enzymes involved in DNA metabolism for their micronutrient co-factor. That there is a need for an international collaborative effort to establish RDAs for genomic stability is self-evident.

The Disappearing Honeybee and More Dirty Dealing by Major Drug Companies
November 16, 2010

Since 2006, as many as 40% of the bee colonies in the United States alone have suffered Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), in which disoriented honeybees die far from their hives. The CCD mystery has kept scientists, beekeepers, and regulators desperately seeking the cause.

Possible suspects in Colony Collapse Disorder have included pests, viruses, genetically modified food, fungi, and especially pesticides—particularly neonicotinoids, a class of neurotoxins that kills insects by attacking their nervous systems. For years, their leading manufacturer, Bayer Crop Science—a division of the German pharmaceutical giant, Bayer AG—has tangled with regulators and fended off lawsuits from angry beekeepers who allege that the pesticides have disoriented and ultimately killed their bees. The company has countered that, when used correctly, the pesticides pose little risk. Bayer Crop Science proudly calls itself “one of the world’s leading innovative enterprises in crop protection, seeds, biotechnology, and non-agricultural pest control.”

Last month, the front page of the New York Times proclaimed, “Scientists and Soldiers Solve a Bee Mystery”—a new study has decided that a fungus tag-teaming with a virus is killing the bees. What the Times article did not explore is the relationship between the study’s lead author, Montana bee researcher Dr. Jerry Bromenshenk, and Bayer Crop Science.

That relationship was the subject of a recent shocking exposé by CNN. Bromenshenk had signed up to be an expert witness for beekeepers who brought a class-action lawsuit against Bayer in 2003. He then dropped out—and immediately received a significant research grant from Bayer to study bee pollination, which has continued in recent years.

It’s one thing for a newspaper to miss the connection. It’s quite another for the researchers, published in the online science journal PLoS One, not to disclose such a material conflict of interest. It should come as no surprise that Bayer pesticides were never mentioned in the study as a potential cause of CCD.

In addition to bees’ pollinating ability, we also rely on their honey. Not only is it a delicious sweetener, it’s also a disinfectant for wounds (particularly specialized honeys such as manuka, which can wipe out antibiotic-resistant bugs), and an aid for stomach problems and for cough. There’s also propolis, a resinous substance collected from the buds of certain trees and used as a cement or sealant in the construction of hives; it’s sometimes called “bee glue.” It’s a unique antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral agent, which we humans can use both topically and internally.

Industry money tarnishing science is nothing new. Here are some of industry’s greatest hits:

* In 2004, in the National Cholesterol Education Program, eight of the nine members of the panel writing the recommendations had financial ties to the makers of cholesterol-lowering drugs.

* Of the 170 contributors to the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), 95 had financial ties to drug companies, including all of the contributors to the sections on mood disorders and schizophrenia.

* Remember Vioxx? The New York Times revealed that of the FDA panel recommending Vioxx remain on the shelf, nearly one-third had financial conflicts of interest with Vioxx’s maker, Merck.

Moreover, ProPublica recently released a report noting that not only are many doctors on the Big Pharma payroll, but many of these same doctors are paid very large sums despite blemished records and limited credentials.

ANH-USA will continue to shine a spotlight on the hijacking of science by industry through such techniques as ghostwriting—medical researchers employed by the pharmaceutical industry to understate the treatment’s risks and promote unapproved uses for the drug.

Why Do We Spend $34 Billion in Alternative

Medicine?

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced Thursday that Americans spent $34 billion on complementary

and alternative medicine in 2007. The study queried more than 70,000 people across the country about 36 various

forms of alternative treatments. But researchers say they still don’t know exactly why people are turning to

these therapies.

My opinion

Are we really that thick or are we putting a blind eye to it? We need to admit that most

medications aren’t working and they are causing a lot of grief in the world today. From

side effects, drug over doses, death, addiction, theft of medications, selling of drugs on the

street, especially the pain pills Percocet and Oxycondone, which in turn leads to more

injuries and death from overdose and from drug deals gone bad. Then we have the doctors

handing prescriptions out like candy or double prescribing and we have the over

prescribing. I think we are just desperate to find something that makes us feel better. Too

many people are seeing the ill side effects of drugs and we are turning to alternative

methods. It is pretty simple, we want to feel good, don’t we? We want a cure not a band

aid! I personally don’t want to be chained to a daily prescription that doesn’t cure

anything yet causes liver damage long term or kidney damage etc. Do you see the side

effects on tv commercials? I usually get them all if I take a prescriptions. It can be life

threatening for some of us. I am finding Alternatives work with no risk of death! To

me that means a lot!

Where will it end? We are actually going
to lose our right to be informed about truthful, scientifically-proven
information about food and natural medicines. I think the FDA has gone too far
this time. To throw people in jail for wanting to help educate people on healing
their bodies naturally?????????. How far are we going to let them go? How can we
turn a blind eye to our own and our children’s health and welfare? It is time to
take action!

Take the time to read this:

Nutritional cures exist for nearly every major disease, but the FDA
doesn’t want you to know about them.
So it has censored truthful,
scientifically-proven information about these substances in order to keep you
ignorant about nutritional cures.

In other words, telling the truth about walnuts turns you into a
criminal
according to the FDA. And if you tell the
scientifically-validated truth about how walnuts can help reduce high
cholesterol, that act magically transforms your walnuts into unapproved drugs.

And much the same is true when you’re talking about green tea
or pomegranates or superfoods. If you dare
discuss the health benefits of any food or natural substance while you are
selling such items, you will be branded a criminal by the FDA, threatened with
criminal prosecution and potentially have your company raided by the FDA along
with armed law enforcement agents with guns drawn.

In its never-ending march on nutritional science, the FDA also went after
Lipton teas, whose website linked to four scientific studies
concluding that green tea has a cholesterol-lowering effect. The FDA warned the
Lipton company to remove the links, claiming that they were “misleading” and
were effectively making claims that Lipton tea could treat a “disease.”

But what if green tea really can help prevent a disease and the FDA just doesn’t
want you to know about it? That’s actually the case with many plant-based
nutrients that have powerful protective effects against disease. But according
to the FDA’s official position, there is no such thing as a food,
nutrient or supplement that can prevent or treat any disease
.

Vitamin C doesn’t prevent scurvy. Vitamin D doesn’t prevent rickets. Vitamin B3
doesn’t prevent pellagra, according to the FDA. Vitamins are biologically
useless substances unless they’re patented by drug companies in
which case they are magically transformed into “therapeutic chemicals” that may
be sold to patients at monopoly prices.

The FDA actually believes that fresh, unprocessed foods have no health benefits
whatsoever. That’s why no health claims are allowed on such things. But dead
processed foods like breakfast cereals can prevent disease, according
to the FDA. That’s why the agency has allowed such products to carry a multitude
of health claims.

It’s all part of the FDA’s censorship of science about
nutrients, foods and supplements. Rather than promoting real scientific
knowledge, the FDA is censoring the science to keep the public as ignorant as
possible.

In this way, the FDA is an enemy of nutritional literacy
because it aims to keep people in the dark about the health benefits of foods,
supplements and nutrients.

And because nutritional literacy is crucial to the long-term survival of
America, the FDA, through its campaign of enforced nutritional illiteracy, is
effectively an enemy of America. The agency has already
accomplished incalculable harm to America’s population and her economy. And the
FDA is just getting warmed up! Now it wants to “step up its enforcement” of
so-called “false” food labeling. This is just a cover story to clamp down on
truthful health claims the FDA wants to censor.
