Uninformed consent..

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

We all have opinions about most things in life, it might be our own personal foods, the alcohol we do or don’t drink, a red or blue footy team or “Stenders” or “Corrie” and it’s based on personal tastes. Occasionally it comes down to an article we read in the newspaper or a programme on telly but how often are our opinions based on true dedicated research, not that frequently I guess. Yes I’m sure there are many that have been to university or taken degrees in a chosen field then have justifiable and strong opinions but…things that are genuinely accepted as being true and honest are not necessarily exactly that..

We get sick and go to see our local GP or get a toothache and see the dentist totally believing that these specialists are giving us the best advice. But what is really happening is that we are blindly giving them Uninformed Consent..A prescription is given for a drug that we simply accept will fix the problem, the doctor tells you to take the full course, see how you feel and come back if the drug didn’t have the desired effect.

In the US a patient goes to the pharmacy and signs two pieces of paper but never once do they ask why….Normally the second will be signing the “co-pay” for their health insurance but the first is normally a small strip of paper that is “matter of factly” placed in front of them. Actually this piece of paper is you signing that you will not hold the pharmacy responsible if the drug you take has adverse side effects, it might kill you but you have signed away all rights to take any legal action, hmmm interesting.


I’m not saying that all doctors know only what they are”encouraged” to know about pharmaceutical drugs and treating symptoms instead of true “healing” but that’s the view of most.

It’s frightening to know that the average GP spends maybe a day during the seven or so years training to be a doctor on nutrition and how it heals, yes heals the body.


So getting back to opinions, yes I too have opinions but in this field my opinions are not simply based on an article in a monthly magazine or on a TV programme sponsored by a pharmaceutical giant. No, my opinions in the natural health and dental field is based on solid research and working with true genuine experts, world leading authorities. I don’t think of myself as one of those people but I do know more than 99.9% of ordinary people.

I’m sure most people watch TV or read magazines have noticed that there seems to be a non stop notification about one form of cancer or another. How you should talk to your doctor if you notice a lump in your breast and that’s not just women.

There is an understanding about how we should support the cancer charities and cancer research and wearing a pink ribbon to show support.

I wonder if the majority of people ever do any research or sit and think about this…

What causes cancer?

Is it hereditary ?

Can you catch it from touching a cancer patient?

What if you kiss someone with cancer?

Will you get cancer if your mum or dad had it?

Well I can assure you the answer to the above is a resounding no…


Ok so there’s an obvious correlation between lung cancer and smoking…

But there are fewer smokers now than ten years ago..so why are there more people with lung cancer now than ten years ago?


Everyone, yes everyone has cancer cells in their body, but as long as you maintain a healthy immune system the cancer cells have little chance of developing.


So I did some research, it seems that there are some organisations that are not keen on sharing specific statistics, I wonder why that is?


Now before I share this I’d like you to think back to my earlier statement, cancer is not contagious..it’s not hereditary..


In 1996 there was 263,000 new cases of cancer diagnosed in the UK, there are millions and millions of pounds generated and donated to cancer research each year. The research facilities are working non stop apparently to find a cure.  In my mind it would surely be far better to find the cause not how to cure it when it happens.

It seems to be a very lucrative business…yes business,

In 2008 there was 309,500 new cases of cancer, so 43,500 more than 12 years before.

In 2011 that had risen to 331,487 new cases and the most recent statistics I can find is that there are roughly 1,000 new cases each week.

Again I ask the question, if it’s not contagious or hereditary, why the freaking heck is in growing  so rapidly?


Ok I don’t have a definitive answer but through working a Huggins Applied Healing and talking with Dr Thomas E Levy, JD, MD and Dr Hal A Huggins and reading countless books and research papers I do know a little more than most people. The immune system is designed to protect the human body, it relies on the correct nutrition to perform correctly, but over the past 100 years the way we (mankind) grow our crops, the way foods actually have little or no nutrition at all has reduced the efficacy of the human immune system. On top of that the use of artificial sweeteners and that white poison (sugar) in almost every processed food has weakened our internal defenses. Did you know that cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment so stop putting acidic junk food in your body. Cancer cells thrive, yes thrive on sugar, so when you see these so called diet foods that are fat-free don’t fall for the con of thinking it’s healthy, look at the amount of sugar in it.


Since 2007 I’ve been devoted to understanding and researching natural health, I’ve been very fortunate to have worked closely with and studied some incredible people and the more I’ve learned the more disgusted I am by the pariah’s disguised as health organisations.

The population of the world will slowly but surely be reduced through the global use of pesticides, herbicides, genetically modified and synthetic foods.

Don’t take my word for this, do your own research, ask questions.

The gullabilty of man..

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

The headline is quite offensive, the sad thing is that there are very specific organisations like Big Pharma and the advertising companies colluding to make this happen, people in the main want to believe in good things not that companies can be downright evil. But when it comes to “Big Pharma” that’s what’s happening, they don’t make drugs to cure anything, they manufacture product’s to temporarily relieve a symptom so they create customers. A few years ago while I was working in the US I came across a statement written by one of the many pharmaceutical giants which said that by the year 2020 they wanted every american to be taking at least one pharmaceutical drug. I didn’t say medicine because that’s not what they are… They are addictive synthetic drugs, there are slightly stricter regulations in Europe but they are slowly but surely being whittled down…

The total greed of Big Pharma is on parade this week as a company called Turing Pharmaceuticals took ownership of a lifesaving medication that treats parasitic infections like malaria. The pill — mostly purchased by AIDS and cancer patients — used to cost $1 each. But now, thanks to Turing Pharmaceuticals and its profiteering CEO Martin Shkreli, each pill will cost you $750.


Remarkably, The New York Times even covered the story, reporting, “Specialists in infectious disease are protesting a gigantic overnight increase in the price of a 62-year-old drug that is the standard of care for treating a life-threatening parasitic infection.”


“The drug, called Daraprim, was acquired in August by Turing Pharmaceuticals, a start-up run by a former hedge fund manager. Turing immediately raised the price to $750 a tablet from $13.50, bringing the annual cost of treatment for some patients to hundreds of thousands of dollars.”


This drug was priced at just $1 a few years ago. It went up to $13.50 over the last decade or so, and now has spiked to $750 per pill. This means a single treatment course could cost more than buying a home.


Big Pharma greed on parade and out of control

Why is Turing Pharmaceuticals charging $750 a pill? Because they CAN. Like every other drug company in the world, they’re going to gouge the consumer and extract the maximum dollars possible. Big Pharma is really about the profits, you see, and not at all interested in “helping humanity” as their ridiculous TV ads claim.


Is it any wonder that 1 out of every 5 dollars spent in the U.S. economy is spent on “sick care” costs? Check out the following chart that shows how different countries spend money in different ways. Care to guess which country spends the most on health care? The United States by a long shot!


This Daraprim pill, by the way, probably costs about 20 cents to manufacture, and it’s probably manufactured in India or Puerto Rico, where most drugs are made and then exported to the USA. How does Turing Pharmaceuticals justify $750 a pill? According to the pharma douchebag Martin Shkreli, it’s “a bargain for health insurers” at $750.


A bargain compared to what? A bargain compared to all the other monopoly-priced drugs, he says. And that’s how insane the monopoly has become, by the way: When a pill that sells for $750 is called “a bargain,” you know you’re living under a monopolistic profiteering medical cartel. And it is, truly, a protected cartel. Who’s protecting it? The corrupt government, of course… starting with the FDA.


Anti-parasite medicine grows for free in the Cinchona tree

Mother Nature already provides highly effective medicines for treating parasitic infections. In fact, the original cure for malaria — known as quinine — comes from the cinchona tree.


This tree, like many trees, provides powerful medicine at zero cost, thanks to Mother Nature. While Big Pharma is gouging consumers with outrageous prices, Mother Nature provides medicine for free in the form of medicinal plants (many weeds), medicinal foods and medicinal tree bark.


Many trees produce powerful medicine. The bark of the cinnamon tree, for example, produces cinnamon, a powerful blood sugar regulator favored by diabetics.


A powerful Chinese Medicine ingredient for boosting kidney strength and treating back pain comes from the Eucommia tree. It’s known as Eucommia Bark, or du zhong in Chinese.


All around the world, Mother Nature provides safe, affordable medicine for free. Big Pharma, meanwhile, price gouges the world, economically punishing everyone while greedily hiking pill prices 5000% or more just because they can.


Turing Pharmaceuticals is making the case for natural medicine

If there was ever a case to be made for natural medicine, Turing Pharmaceuticals just nailed it. People who use natural medicine instead of Big Pharma medicine have access to safe, affordable, effective medicines created by Mother Nature.


Medicinal herbs, essential oils and healing foods are available for virtually nothing. Many can be grown yourself for free. The plants synthesize the medicines without charge, and there are no royalties or patents to think of.


Is it any wonder our nation is going broke with “sick care” costs? Turing Pharmaceuticals wants you to pay the price of a house for a single course of treatment for a parasite infection. The fact that these pills target AIDS and cancer patients makes it even more of a gross ethical violation.


Then again, we shouldn’t be surprised. This is the same greed-driven industry that injects our children with toxic vaccines that cause autism (and then buries the evidence at the CDC); that runs a price monopoly on pharmaceuticals in the USA; that pays generic drug companies to NOT release lower-priced drugs onto the market; that buys off the FDA and government regulators; that routinely commits scientific fraud to make useless drugs appear effective… and that engages in a long list of felony crimes including bribery and price fixing.


Natural medicine is safe, affordable, and non-patentable. This means it cannot be controlled by greedy corporations and their patent attorneys. This is why 80% of the world’s population relies on plant-based medicine, rejecting the absurd pharmaceutical monopoly system that has economically enslaved the U.S. population (and is driving cities, states and households bankrupt).


Martin Shkreli a former hedge fund manager

Getting into the total lack of ethics of these people, Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli is — surprise! — a former hedge fund manager.


In other words, he has gone from gouging people’s money for investments to gouging people’s money for medicine. (Remember: this is all LEGAL theft in America.)


As the New York Times reports:


This is not the first time the 32-year-old Mr. Shkreli, who has a reputation for both brilliance and brashness, has been the center of controversy. He started MSMB Capital, a hedge fund company, in his 20s and drew attention for urging the Food and Drug Administration not to approve certain drugs made by companies whose stock he was shorting.


So hold on. He was shorting the stocks of drug companies, then urging the FDA to withhold approval for those drugs? It sort of blows away any claim of being “ethical,” doesn’t it? As long as Shkreli is making money, he will either price hike a drug by 5000% or more, or urge the FDA to reject the drug… whichever one makes him the most money!


Take a look at this guy’s face. I don’t know about you, but there’s something creepy about this guy that just smacks of a pathological psycho in my opinion… almost like if he weren’t hawking hedge funds or selling pharmaceuticals, he’d be running a child kidnapping ring or selling baby parts from Planned Parenthood. Hey, whatever makes the money for him, right? He literally looks like a villain from a Hollywood blockbuster movie.


Hillary Clinton goes off on Turing Pharmaceuticals, promises price controls

In response to all this, Hillary Clinton did something brilliant. For her, that’s really something. Check out this comment she tweeted:


Price gouging like this in the specialty drug market is outrageous. Tomorrow I’ll lay out a plan to take it on. -H


That tweet sent biotech / pharma stocks tumbling. As this Bloomberg article reported:


Martin Shkreli, a former hedge fund manager who is now chief executive officer of Turing Pharmaceuticals AG, was called out by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Clinton tweeted that she would soon release a plan to combat the high cost of prescription drugs. Biotechnology stocks fell after her comment.


Clinton’s comment on Twitter sent the 144-member Nasdaq Biotechnology Index down 4.7 percent to 3,556.58 at 1:08 p.m. in New York, the biggest intraday drop since Aug. 24. Health-care stocks were the worst-performing subgroup on the broader Nasdaq index.


“I’m going to address them this week, starting with how we’re going to try to control the cost of skyrocketing prescription drugs,” said Clinton in the Bloomberg article. So Hillary Clinton is now claiming she’s going to hammer away at the very corporations that fund her election campaigns? Gimmie a break.


The idea that Hillary Clinton, the ultimate big money insider, is going to hurt the profits of Big Pharma is ludicrous. Her tweet, however, is still impressive to witness, even if she doesn’t mean it.


“Blaming a biotech sector drop on a tweet is one thing, but investors should remember that Hillary Clinton is set to lay out her plan on prescriptions drugs momentarily. At issue is whether the government will be able to negotiate with drug companies over their pricing,” wrote 247WallSt.com.


What they didn’t report — and almost no one in America remembers — is how George W. Bush made sure the U.S. government was not allowed to negotiate prices with Big Pharma, locking in the drug industry’s highest prices and profits. Yep, is anyone surprised that a Republican conspired with Big Pharma to engage in systematic profiteering and price gouging? (Republicans are the big pushers of Monsanto and the biotech industry, by the way, while Hillary Clinton is so neck-deep up Monsanto’s rear end that she’s known as the “Bride of Frankenfood.”)


It’s all business as usual in other words.


Monopolistic price gouging is the entire business model of Big Pharma

It’s worth noting in all this that Martin “Loki” Shkreli isn’t alone. Price gouging and monopolistic profiteering is the entire business model of the pharmaceutical industry.


Here are some shocking facts you might not have known about the industry:


FACT #1: Most Big Pharma funding comes from taxpayers via NIH grants.


FACT #2: Most Big Pharma expenditures are spent on marketing, not R&D.


FACT #3: Google actively conspires with Big Pharma and the FDA to block pharmacy ads from Canada, where drugs can be purchased at a fraction of the U.S. price.


FACT #4: People all over the world pay a fraction of the U.S. price for the exact same pharmaceuticals, often as little as 2% of the U.S. price in places like India.


FACT #5: The FDA protects a monopoly of drug prices in the U.S., making sure consumers don’t have access to cheaper drugs from Canada or Mexico. People who bring in legal, FDA-approved drugs from Canada are arrested and prosecuted as “drug smugglers.”


FACT #6: Even while the FDA bans drug purchases from Canada or Mexico, most of the pharmaceuticals sold in U.S. pharmacies are actually manufactured in India or Puerto Rico!


FACT #7: Most pharmaceuticals don’t treat any diseases in the first place. They treat SYMPTOMS, guaranteeing repeat business by making sure the underlying health condition never gets cured.


FACT #8: Most pharmaceuticals cause unintended side effects and organ damage that leads to yet more diseases, requiring yet more pharmaceuticals that generate yet more profits for Big Pharma.


FACT #9: Cancer drugs (chemotherapy) cause cancer! And AIDS drugs cause the kind of symptoms that are often diagnosed as AIDS. Many drugs actually cause the very conditions they claim to treat. Some cause other conditions, too, such as antidepressant drugs causing diabetes.


FACT #10: The corruption and collusion between the pharmaceutical industry and the U.S. government is extreme. The U.S. medical system is an example of runaway corporate fascism and Big Government oppression. The government oppresses natural medicine, prevention and natural cures while handing a monopoly to the drug industry which claims to “treat” all the health conditions in the country. This is one of the big reasons why America is going broke.

Artificial Sweetener Disease…

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health


I’ve been saying this for years, now a report by a creditable natural health organisation is shouting it from the rooftops, Artifical sweetners are deadly.

(NaturalNews) Artificial Sweetener Disease (ASD) is sweeping across America, affecting tens of thousands of consumers, and Western medicine calls it anything but what it really is, so that doctors can prescribe expensive pharmaceuticals and set up “check up” appointments for the following weeks.Call it recurring headaches, unbearable migraines, depression, anxiety, muscle pain, arthritis flare ups, buzzing or ringing in the ears, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s disease, inflammation, even acid reflux, but don’t call it ASD, or the patient may stop consuming synthetic sweeteners, and then not schedule more doctor visits.  

The symptoms of ASD can change overnight, depending on how much chemical sweetener you consume, and which ones. Some combinations are especially toxic. Consumers can go from a migraine headache to vomiting or from vision problems to an upset stomach. Many people experience central nervous system disorders, cramping, nervous twitches and abnormal reflexes. (http://www.holisticmed.com/aspartame/)

It all started when Ronald Reagan took office in 1980. He immediately fired the head of the FDA, under advisement from Donald Rumsfeld (CEO of Searle Pharmaceutical at the time), and hired Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr., who auspiciously approved aspartame. It was the decade of the diet craze, and Rumsfeld and his constituents made a fortune off the artificial sweetener which had been banned for decades due to laboratory testing results proving it was carcinogenic. The same FDA tainted approval process gave way to sucralose in 1991, and then sorbitol in 2003. (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/robbi…)

Gulf War Syndrome mainly ASD

It is not a coincidence that a wave of fibromyalgia cases hit the American troops during the Gulf War. Studies revealed that drinking diet sodas in the 120 degree heat lead to serious health repercussions. It was cleverly chalked up under the umbrella term “Gulf War Syndrome,” but the same problems are occurring for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan now. (http://www.militaryspot.com/resourc…)It is also no coincidence that 4 out of 5 fibromyalgia cases affect women, who are more likely to eat diet foods and consume diet drinks than men. Nearly all chewing gum and breath mints are loaded with artificial sweeteners. (http://healthwyze.org/index.php/com…)  

The popular saying that “there’s not enough artificial sweetener in any specific product to cause health concerns” is a lie, especially now that in 2011 there are synthetic sweeteners in over 25% of all food, drink, gum and candy available. This cumulative effect has created ASD, and thanks to little or no regulation of chemical agents in food, it’s not going away any time soon.

There is no prescription drug, and there never will be one, that cures the problems that artificial sweeteners create. In fact, over 70 percent of reported cases of fibromyalgia, chronic depression, IBS and acid reflux are caused by consuming chemical agents which have been approved by the FDA for consumption. (http://www.foodintol.com/food_intol…)

Cancer may be the distant, long term result of consuming chemicals, but ASD is the short term consequence, and it is very serious. If you look to prescription drugs to cure these “chronic ailments,” then you will experience even more side effects from the prescription medicines, and maybe worse ones than you already have.

The good news is the cure for Artificial Sweetener Disease is absolutely free and involves no doctor, no health insurance co-pays, and has zero side effects. Here is the secret cure for ASD: throw away your sugar free gum and candy, and then trash all foods and drinks you have that are labeled “light” and “zero.” Read the labels on everything, so you can filter out all artificial sweeteners from your products, including aspartame, sucralose, sorbitol, acesulfame-k, aspartic acid, and saccharine.

As an alternative to poisoning yourself, try Xylitol or Stevia in order to cut calories, or simply eat more organic vegetables! If problems persist, take a list of everything you ate this week to your Naturopath or Nutritionist to analyze. Remember, if you’re getting sick from moldy bread, don’t look for a prescription drug to cure you, just stop eating moldy bread.

The sweet HEALTHY healer…

Posted by: admin  /  Category: Health

Several years ago I was taken aback at the comments made by my employer, teacher, mentor and friend, Dr Hal Huggins who was one of the most amazing people I ever met. On this particular day he went to great lengths about the multitude of health benefits of honey, I think he spent an hour or two emphasizing how beneficial this could be to most people. So when I read this article today I felt it only right to share, please take a few minutes to read..

From the office of Dr. Joshua Levitt:

Dear health-conscious friend,

It’s happening in small, private clinics…

And it’s happening in the largest, most respected hospitals in the world…

A rising tide of doctors and health care providers are now urging their patients eat this “life-giving” sugar every single day.

They’re not just recommending it to give a “slightly better alternative” to other sweeteners either. They’re prescribing it to treat life-threatening diseases, heal chronic conditions, and keep people looking and feeling their very best.

What is this sugar?

If you guessed honey, then you’re absolutely right. For we’ve all heard about how honey is a remarkable substance. We’ve heard about how it “doesn’t go bad”. Or about how archaeologists found unspoiled, 2000-year-old honey in an Egyptian tomb.

Honey contains a concentrated dose of vitamins, minerals and nutrients that nourish and re-vitalize your body. And it possesses unique antimicrobial properties that help you fight off infections.

Throughout history, honey has been used to treat…

  • Coughs
  • Wounds
  • Indigestion
  • Skin infections
  • Fatigue
  • Flu’s
  • Burns
  • And more!

For example, honey was the most popular ancient Egyptian healing remedy (and was mentioned over 500 times in 900 remedies.)

Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine) used honey as a treatment for pain, dehydration, and fever. And this isn’t just some “folk remedy” discredited by modern science either. Researchers (in thousands of peer-reviewed papers) continue to uncover just how healing honey can be.

In fact…

This often surprises people though.

I still remember how one patient, Rachel, just stood there, staring at me with her mouth open.

“Hold on. Let me get this straight.” she said. “Did I really just hear my doctor tell me to give my seven-year-old son honey?!?”

I nodded. “Just a spoonful before he goes to bed. The cough will clear up in no time.”

Her son, Kevin, had just recovered from the flu. And while the fever and nausea had faded, his cough hadn’t.

Overcome by a fit of coughing every five minutes, he couldn’t sleep at night (which made him cranky and miserable all day.)

Rachel was at her wit’s end. The sleepless nights left her exhausted. And she’d done everything she could think of to help her son… Lots of water… Cough syrup… Even antibiotics.

And here I was, a physician, prescribing something you’d normally drizzle over oatmeal or spread on toast.

Truth be told though, I could sympathize with her skepticism. For when I first heard about honey’s life-giving properties…

I Didn’t Believe the Science

See, I’m a naturopathic physician. What that means is that I treat real patients for real illnesses. I’m responsible for helping them get better.

I don’t take that responsibility lightly.

That makes me a fierce skeptic when it comes to “miracle cures”. If you’re going to trust me as their doctor, I intend full-well to repay that trust and prescribe treatments that will work.

I demand to see peer-reviewed studies.

I go out of my way to talk to leading doctors and health experts.

In fact, my strict standards for evidence are a key reason why I have the respect of not just the alternative health world, but the traditional western medical community as well.

Take, for example, the endorsement of Yale University (a leading, Ivy League medical institution.) I teach classes there. And I help them develop their curriculum.

In addition, I am also…

Many of my current patients are doctors and nurses.

After seeing the results I get for their patients (I tend to get referred “problem” cases that traditional medicine can’t solve), doctors often come to me and say, “Whatever you did to that guy, I want you to do it to me too.”

All this is to say…

I’m very serious when it comes to medicine.

And when I first heard the claims people were making about honey’s healing abilities, I was rightly skeptical.

After all…

We’ve all heard about how sugar causes obesity, diabetes, and a bunch of other chronic diseases.

We’ve also heard how it costs the United States over $150 billion dollars each year in medical expenses.

Or how leading health figures like the Dutch health minister, Paul Van der Velpen, proclaim sugar to be worse than alcohol, tobacco, and cocaine combined.

It’s all true.

Sugar can be extremely hazardous to your health.

But this depends on two critical factors…

  1. How much sugar you consume.
  2. What kind of sugar you eat.

Consumed in moderation, sugar is a helpful source of energy. That is… provided you get it from the right sources.

We humans evolved to get our sugar by eating whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and yes, even honey. Your body knows how to extract the maximum benefit from these whole foods.

Honey, in particular, has three critical healing effects…

First, honey supports your immune system and fights off harmful bacteria.

As you know, your body is under constant assault by numerous viruses and bacteria that threaten to tire you out, make you sick, and even kill you.

Fighting off this threat is key to staying healthy.

One of the vital components in honey is an enzyme called glucose oxidase. This enzyme, when exposed to oxygen, produces hydrogen peroxide — a strong acid that dissolves the cell walls of bacteria. (Most human cells have thicker cell walls and can resist the low amounts of acid honey produces.)

This makes honey a powerful tool for fighting skin infections, healing wounds, and otherwise supporting your immune system. (And its why honey is able to last for so long in your cupboard without going bad.)

Second, it supplies the “building blocks” for healthy cells.

In addition to giving you sugars, honey equips your body with a complex array of proteins, enzymes, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients. The second these nutrients hit your body, they go to work…

  • Tuning up your heart, lungs, stomach, brain, eyes, and skin…
  • Controlling cancer-causing free-radicals and stopping cell damage in its tracks…
  • Detoxifying your body of harmful pollutants and other toxins.

However, honey still has a very high sugar content (70%-85% depending on the type of honey you get.) And as just about any health official will tell you, sugar is a major cause of obesity, diabetes, and all the other chronic illnesses we see in abundance today.

So shouldn’t we avoid honey despite its antimicrobial and nutritional properties?

Well, that brings me to the third healing effect of honey. It turns out…

You’ve probably experienced just how rapidly most sugar burns in your body — how it gives you a sudden surge of energy followed shortly by a complete crash.

Yet when you eat honey, you don’t get that same “flare effect”. Instead you get a slow, even burn of energy — which you can put to use for things like working, playing sports, or spending time with your family.

That’s because all the extra enzymes and nutrients in honey not only help the body rebuild itself — they also regulate how the body uses the sugar.

It’s kind of like the flame on your stove.

Contained and controlled by the burner, valves, and the rest of the stove, you can safely use the fire for cooking.

But take that flame out of context — by putting it on your living room floor for example — it can quickly burn out of control and cause all kinds of damage.

In the same way, sugars eaten outside their normal context of whole, complete foods run riot in our bodies — leaving us exhausted, overweight, and sick.

Unfortunately, as you know…

The sugar you find in grocery stores, processed foods, and packaged desserts is made in large scale, industrial refineries using cheap, mass-farmed crops like sugar beets.

Food manufacturers extract the sugary pulp from the rest of the plant.

They strip away all trace of healthy minerals and nutrients.

And they leave you with a hyper-concentrated dose of empty calories that cause all kinds of chaos in your body.

Without the “burn-control” you normally get when you eat sugar that’s part of a whole food, the body can’t control the fire. And so we end up with…

  • Heart disease
  • Weight gain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Weak immune systems
  • Gut problems
  • Cancer
  • And more…

It’s not just white sugar either. Many so-called “natural sweeteners” like raw sugar, corn syrup, and agave nectar are all highly refined. One study done at Princeton found these alternatives cause just as much (if not far more) damage to your body than white sugar.

The body just doesn’t know how to properly use these concentrated, “unnatural” sugars.

So why do we even bother with these harmful sweeteners in the first place? Why don’t we all just use honey?

The short answer: Profit.

The long answer: What I like to call…


See, there are several major problems with honey. It’s simple. It’s un-patentable. And it’s not as cheap to manufacture in mass quantities as refined-sugar.

That makes selling processed sugar far more PROFITABLE than selling honey.

How profitable?

Well, according to Business Communications Company, Inc. (BCC) research, the sugar industry was worth over $77.5 billion in 2012. (And that doesn’t include the even larger market for selling processed foods containing that sugar.)
