Nothing But The Weed

Categories: Articles & News

Do You Swear to Kill the Weed, and Nothing but the Weed? 

Since its introduction in the 1990’s, we have been told that the common weed killer glyphosate (Round Up) is essentially harmless to humans. Now, a class action lawsuit has been filed for damages and deaths connecting glyphosate and Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  Could this “harmless” herbicide be connected to the dramatic rise in other chronic disease over the past 30 years?

Dr. Stephanie Seneff, senior research scientist at MIT has conducted extensive study into the role of glyphosate in chronic disease. Approximately 300 million pounds of glyphosate  herbicide are sprayed on crops every year, contaminating crops as well as our water.  Her research presents astounding evidence linking the buildup of this toxic herbicide to illness such as gastrointestinal, non-alcoholic fatty liver, autism, infertility and cancer. 

Numerous studies site the causal evidence as follows. Once ingested, glyphosate disrupts the delicate balance of the microbiome in the GI tract.  Glyphosate blocks a pathway essential for the synthesis of the precursors to important neurotransmitters. Simply, glyphosate interferes with adequate synthesis of both serotonin and dopamine – the chemistry that directs mood, attitude, sleep, energy, memory, and impulse control. 

Glyphosate robs the body of key trace minerals, in particular iron, cobalt and manganese.  

  • Iron is necessary for proper red blood cell formation and oxygen utilization.

  • Cobalt induces uptake of iodine by the thyroid, is key to B12 metabolism as well as synthesis of RNA and DNA

  • Manganese involved in fat metabolism and collagen.  Very low levels are observed in conjunction with seizures. 

Then, there is documented proof that this “weed killer” disrupts sulfur pathways which are vital to digestion and detoxification. Interesting that the wheat products enjoyed in European and the Mideastern countries (bread, pasta, pastries) often do not create the same gastronomic distress as those in America as the use of glyphosate is severely restricted. Could it be that the glyphosate, not the gluten is the real hidden culprit?













The Good News - Nature, with Her infinite capacity for healing continually provides remedies for our our misdirected attempts to improve on Her perfect patterns. The science of Homotoxicology utilizes natural remedies that target the removal of these toxins. Homotoxicology promotes healing by unblocking enzymatic pathways, draining toxins from the connective tissue and restoring cellular neurotransmissions. 

Electro Dermal Analysis (EDA) provides information regarding remedies most compatible for the unique pattern of the individual, including recent combinations specific for glyphosate.  Appointments can be scheduled here ==>  Natural Path Consulting

Microbial Allies – A Shift in Perspective

 

Time for a reset on our very skewed perspective of microbe as enemy. Vibrant health is achieved through the balance of the vast microbes that live with us in symbiotic relationship.  Our gastrointestinal tract alone houses trillions of microbes.  More than immensely helpful, these microbes are crucial for optimal function. But what about other microbes?
 
The development of Germ Theory established microbes as the foundation and causative agents of disease. Prior medical systems that viewed toxic environmental conditions (both external and internal) as the cause of disease diminished in significance. Read more...

What You Can Do to Stay Healthy!

 
 # 1 - Your Human Body Possesses an Awesome Capacity to Heal 

“Humanity is awakening to the incredible power we have to influence our own healing. We all have the capacity to change the trajectory from disease to health. When working with natural medicine, we are working with natural law. Natural law holds all things in balance. We merely need to shore up deficiencies and remove impedances, then let the vital body restore homeostasis for healing.”  Wings of Light, Feet of Clay
 

# 2 - Microbes are a part of life. 
 
Viruses and bacteria have been around since the beginning of time. Many of these microbes are highly beneficial and we would not sustain life without them.  As we devise a new chemical therapy to eliminate a pathogenic species, it will invariably find a way to adapt and survive around it. This is part of our dilemma with microbial antibiotic resistance. Microbes are opportunistic and will thrive wherever conditions best suit them. The goal is to develop an internal environment supporting the beneficial bacteria while eliminating the opportunistic pathogens. The best offense is a good defense, and the best offense is to focus on strategies that build healthy tissue.
 
 
Fact # 3 – Simple Strategies Are Powerfully Effective 
 
Preventative measure exist that will empower you to take control of your own health. Though simple, they bear reviewing:

  •  Drink lots of water. Hydration is essential to flush toxins and waste products from the system 
  •  Eat a diet rich in antioxidants and dense in nutrients. These are abundant in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and legumes
  • Supplement with green superfoods and probiotics for trace minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and micro flora necessary for proper immune function 
  • Use adaptogenic herbs that help cleans the bloodstream and eliminative organs, and assist in cellular detoxification – ginger, garlic, burdock, dandelion, alfalfa, thyme, and elderberry 
  • Get plenty of rest and sleep. A few minutes of meditation each day will relieve stress on the nervous system building the body’s natural reserves 

 
Fact # 4 - Homeopathic Remedies Assist in Prevention and Accelerate Recovery 
 
Numerous scientific studies have been conducted worldwide proving that homeopathic remedies assist in prevention of and recovery from virtually every illness on the face of the planet. Clinical studies have proven certain homeopathic and herbal formulas superior to the vaccine and anti-viral medicines in prophylactic coverage and recovery from flu. Advances in homeopathy have created remedies that regulate physiological processes increasing lymphocytes, natural killer cells and anti-inflammatory molecules necessary for arresting microbes and toxins that contribute to both acute and chronic illness. 
 
Above all, remember: You hold the power to build your health!

Homeopathic Facts - Did You Know...?

 
Homeopathy is a 200+ year old proven system of medicine that works by stimulating the body’s natural defenses.  Homeopathy means “similar suffering” - a homeopathic substance that produces symptoms in a healthy person will cure those same symptoms in an ill person.  (Hippocrates) 
 
Homeopathy is a scientifically proven system of healing that is based on natural laws and principles. A highly systematic method, it powerfully stimulates the body’s vital force and defense mechanisms, which leads to true healing. 
 
The Great White Plague (deadly flu epidemic) of 1918, that claimed over a million lives, homeopaths had a death rate of only 1.05%, while allopaths had an overall death rate of over 30%.  
 
During the 1832 cholera epidemic, homeopaths had great success. The names and addresses of patients cured of cholera were recorded. Of 1116, only 3 percent died, while between 48 and 60 percent of those under orthodox medical treatment died.                                
                  
Divided Legacy (Vol III, Coulter) 
 
 Homeopathy Works!  It has for over 200 years and many of you are proof positive it still does. Are you interested in homeopathic prevention? Increasing energy, resilience and natural immunity?  Schedule an appointment here ==>  Natural Path Consulting

To reserve your seat, click on: The 5 Paths of Healing Power Workshop
 
Garlic – Allium sativa - The Flower of Power.  
 


Garlic is strengthening, energy-giving and detoxifying. The essence or vital energy of garlic provides a basis to builds confidence and resilience.  It facilitates a sense of connection with the wholeness of life. What a perfect ally to bring healing at this point in our evolutionary path.
When crushed, garlic releases its active component allicin.  However, cooking destroys allicin so for medicinal purposes it is best eaten raw or cooked at low temps for less than twenty minutes.  Garlic has powerful antimicrobial powers. It can also help lower cholesterol. Take a few cloves of garlic, crush add them to a bottle of cold-pressed olive oil. Use this as a base for salad dressings and pesto.
  
·       Anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic 
·       Detoxifies body of heavy metals and chemicals
·       Enhances immune function 
·       Can lower blood pressure and lipids
 
The bulb is the medicinal portion of the garlic plant.  Use fresh or crushed and soaked in olive oil.  Garlic is a rich source of minerals: calcium, folate, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, and Vitamins B & C. Garlic is a powerful healing ally hiding right underneath our nose!
