  • Neurological Disease: What You’re NOT Going To Hear From Your Conventional Doctor. You’ll NEVER hear any of this from your conventional medical doctor, for at least two reasons. First, there are no known cures for neurological diseases in conventional medicine. In fact, even our symptomatic treatments are fairly lame. Secondly, when a doctor does have information about a “non standard” (read that: “not conventional medicine”) approach, he or she could lose their medical license by telling you about it. So don’t be disappointed if your conventional medical doctor, no matter how good or well-respected, doesn’t have much hope to offer. That’s conventional medicine. If I found out tomorrow that I had a neurological disease, here are the steps I would take right away: Read the rest of Dr. Myatt’s article here…
  • Freedom – Ours to Keep or Lose. As the Founding Fathers knew, the way we remain free as individuals is because we each have a voice and a vote. If we fail to exercise our freedom to speak and to elect our officials, then we get the government we deserve. That is why I continually encourage you to be pro-active. It’s the only way we can continue to enjoy the freedoms that we do, health freedom included. Read the rest of Dr. Myatt’s article here:
  • The FDA’s Road Map to End Dietary Supplements. This document frightens me for the future of America’s access to nutritional supplements – In this document the FDA has laid out a very precise 3-year plan to decimate the nutritional supplement industry, reduce the availability of nutritional supplements to Americans, and to radically increase the price of those nutritional supplements that remain. Read the rest of Nurse Mark’s article here:
  • Mother Was Right: Drink Your Vegetables! “A French team now reports that diets rich in flavonoids – the antioxidant compounds in fruit, vegetables, coffee, tea, and chocolate – could reduce the decline in mental function associated with aging.” Following on Dr. Myatt’s article “Vitaminless Vegetables: the New Nutrient Deficiency” this article details important new proof of the value of veggies and fruits.
