Parasites are more common than most people realize. There are many different kinds. Internally, there's a pretty good chance that you and a third of the people you know have them. If we consider the possibility that there are many common parasites that we are as of yet unaware of, most of us could be suffering from them. If you want to take it a step further and consider candida a parasite (most don't group them together, but candida does fit the description), then it could be argued that most people in the world suffer from adverse health effects due to parasites.
We use the word herb loosely here, it should really read "Foods, herbs, other things you can eat to kill parasites." But that's not a very good title.
Garlic is anti-bad-stuff. Viruses, fungi, bacteria, parasites, cancer, and vampires all hate garlic. It's an absolutely amazing herb and the best in the business at killing bad stuff. It even chelates heavy metals (removes them from the body). Garlic is also a very powerful deterrent for blood sucking parasites like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas.
2. Black Walnut-Nuts & Hull
The nuts and green hulls of black walnut (Juglans nigra) are loved by herbalists for their ability to cleanse the blood and the intestines. Black walnut hull is used to cure fungal infections. The juice from the green hulls are used to kill parasites. Only green hulls should be used.
Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) is a perennial herb with tiny yellow-green flowers. Leaves and flowers are used to treat stomach problems and wormwood is a powerful remedy for intestinal worms. Wormwood should be avoided by women who or nursing. Wormwood has strong antimicrobial properties and is used for other infections as well.
Clove essential oil is used to dissolve eggs found in the intestines that have been left behind by worms. It's believed to be the only herb that actually does destroy almost all parasite eggs. When used in conjunction with black walnut and wormwood, the trio break the parasite's life-cycles. Clove is also antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. Clove oil has powerful broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties.
Thyme is one of the best herbs for stimulating the thymus, a major gland of the immune system. Thyme helps stimulate the body's natural defenses and works very well with echinacea to boost the ability of our immune system. Oil of thyme can eliminate growth of many parasites, and it kills them in the intestinal tract.
6. Oil of Oregano
Oil of oregano is infused with extremely high levels of free-radical-crushing antioxidants, and it is antiparasitic, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal. It is a powerful, indiscriminate killer that can reset the microbial environment in the intestines. Many studies show the effectiveness of oil of oregano with everything from parasitical infections to cancer.

There’s no doubt about it – modern wheat is quickly becoming the new high-fructose corn syrup and a menace to wellness. Gluten found in modern wheat has been linked to rheumatoid arthritis, headaches, ADHD, psoriasis, poor gut health, depression, and multiple sclerosis, and is not tolerated by people with celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome and wheat allergy. Some also attribute many other adverse health effects to modern wheat, such as “neurological impairment, dementia, heart disease, cataracts, diabetes, arthritis and visceral fat accumulation,” in addition to a full range of intolerances.
Wheat has changed incredibly since the first cultivated varieties from 10,000 years ago. During the post-WWII Green revolution, the Western world, with the goal of increasing agricultural output, widely hybridized wheat grains and started using synthetic fertilizers and pesticides to resist disease and to boost agricultural output. As a result, wheat has turned into a nameless mono-crop.
“The majority of wheat is processed into 60% extraction, bleached white flour. 60% extraction–the standard for most wheat products means that 40% of the original wheat grain is removed. So not only do we have an unhealthier, modified, and hybridized strain of wheat, we also remove and further degrade its nutritional value by processing it. Unfortunately, the 40% that gets removed includes the bran and the germ of the wheat grain–its most nutrient-rich parts. In the process of making 60% extraction flour, over half of the vitamin B1, B2, B3, E, folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, iron, and fiber are lost.” [Natasha Longo]
Re-discovering Heritage Wheat
Ancient varieties of wheat still exist, and more people are starting to pay attention to the potential these grains hold for the gluten-sensitive and gluten-intolerant individuals, in addition to offering a healthier option for everyone who enjoys pastas and breads. For example, “a diploid species with 14 chromosomes, einkorn has a different gluten structure than modern wheat (which has 42 chromosomes) and is easier to digest.” (Source) Einkorn (Triticum monococcum) is the oldest and most primitive cultivated wheat, and, based on recent laboratory testing, T. monococcum gliadin (gluten) doesn’t have the same effect as regular bread gliadin and hence may be a possible alternative for the gluten intolerant.
Organizations such as the Heritage Grain Conservancy and Community Grains work to collect and protect almost-extinct varieties of ancient grains, such as einkorn, and are helping to establish a new grain economy for local and organic farmers. Below is a short video with Eli Rogosa, the director of the Heritage Wheat Conservancy, discussing her efforts at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to preserve ancient wheats from [...]

Widely proscribed around the world for its recreational uses, cannabis is being used in a number of different therapeutic ways to bring relief for severe medical conditions. Products using cannabinoids, the active components of the cannabis plant, have been licensed for medical use. Sativex, for example, which contains an equal mixture of the cannabinoids tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), is already licenced as a mouth spray for multiple sclerosis and in the US, dronabinol and nabilone are commercially available for treating cancer-related side effects.
Now, in a study published in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, we’ve also shown that cannabinoids could play a role in treating one of the most aggressive cancers in adults.
There are more than 85 cannabinoids, which are known to bind to unique receptors in cells and which receive outside chemical signals. These receptors feed into signalling pathways, telling cells what to do. Recent studies have shown that some cannabinoids have potent anti-cancer action. For example, both THC and CBD have been shown in a number of laboratory studies to effectively induce cell death in tumour cells by modifying the faulty signalling pathways inside these cells. Depending on the cell type this can disrupt tumour growth or start to kill it.
The psychoactivity associated with some cannabinoids, principally THC (which gives people a cannabis high), is also mediated via the same receptors. Because these receptors are found in the highest abundances in brain cells, it follows that brain tumours also rich in these receptors may respond best to cannabinoids.
We wanted to investigate the anti-cancer effects of Sativex in glioma cells. High-grade glioma is an aggressive cancer, with very low long-term survival rates. Statistics show that just over a third (36%) of adult patients in the UK with glioma live for at least a year, while the five-year survival rate is 10%.
Depending on the individual, treatment can consist of surgery, radiotherapy, and/or chemotherapy with the drug temozolomide. However, due primarily to the intricate localisation of the tumour in the brain and its invasive behaviour, these treatments remain largely unsuccessful.
However, as our study showed, combining radiotherapy with cannabinoid treatment had a big effect.
Finding the right dose
We first had to perform lab tests on [...]
Cannabis has already been proven to treat cancer anecdotally in many people – some with leukemia, others with lymphoma. But what’s gaining the most spotlight is how cannabis is able to eradicate brain cancer. In a recent study, researchers at the University of London have found that cannabis helps to ‘dramatically reduce’ the growth of new brain cancer cells.
The research showed that two active chemical components found in cannabis plants, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), helped in the treatment of cancerous brain tumors. This is one of the most difficult types of cancer to treat effectively, and the rate of survival for patients who get brain cancer is often very low. For many – once they receive a diagnosis – they are given a short five years to live; any hope of living after their prognosis is given a mere 10% chance. Those are some stark statistics.
It’s promising that a team of researchers was able to treat brain tumors in mice in a variety of ways, either without any treatment, using the cannabinoids alone, using irradiation alone, or with the cannabinoids and irradiation at the same [...]
Have you heard of triclosan?
It’s a common ingredient found in everything from popular toothpastes to shampoos to dish washing liquids and many other common household cleaners. Nearly all antibacterial soaps sold in the U.S. contain the petrochemical (at this point you really have to go out of your way in your average big box store or shop at a specialty/natural store to find one that doesn’t). It’s also used to make everything from socks to bedding to trash bags.
Well now a new study out yesterday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has found that triclosan causes cancer and liver fibrosis in mice.
The researchers concluded:
Through a long-term feeding study, we found that TCS enhances hepatocyte proliferation, fibrogenesis, and oxidative stress, which, we believe, can be the driving force for developing advanced liver disease in mice. Indeed, TCS strongly enhances hepatocarcinogenesis after diethylnitrosamine initiation, accelerating hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) development. Although animal studies require higher chemical concentrations than predicted for human exposure, this study demonstrates that TCS acts as a HCC tumor promoter and that the mechanism of TCS-induced mouse liver pathology may be relevant to [...]
Thirteen years ago, Croatian doctors told Ante Kresich that his lung cancer was beyond treatment and to get things in order and prepare to die. It's unclear how he came upon using local raw honey with herbs, but he did, and he fully recovered.
Kresich's exact formula remains a mystery, but a woman from nearby Bosnia shared her cancer-curing honey ginger recipe. Maybe she was his first source. It seems the Eastern Europeans are open to curing disease naturally without medical authorities threatening them.
Kresich explained, "I left the hospital in April, and in the summer I was already a completely different man. When I went to consult my doctors they could not believe that I was still alive, and also they could [not believe] the results of the examinations that followed."
The examinations showed that he was completely cancer-free. Ante's life has since blossomed with new purpose. His unexpected brush with death has showered him with many blessings. If you met him now, you might never suspect that had been a terminal cancer victim.
Today, he is brimming with energy and confidence with his honey cancer cure. In fact, he consults with people from all over the world who seek him out and are eager to learn about his medicine and how it might benefit them. He is also now a bee keeper. [...]
Judge Says Family Can Choose Non-Medical Treatment For Girl With Cancer -
A judge has ruled that a family in Brantford, Ontario, can refuse chemotherapy for their 11-year-old girl who has leukemia.
The girl's aboriginal family, which is part of the Six Nations, wants her to use their traditional healing medicine instead of modern science.
Canadian Judge Gethin Edward ruled that the mother’s aboriginal rights trump the girl's doctors at McMaster Children's Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, who say the girl has a 90-95 percent survival chance with chemotherapy.
The mother told CBC News, "I will not have my daughter treated with poison... I have chosen treatment that will not compromise her well-being and quality of life."
The family won't say exactly what type of care the child is receiving from her traditional healer, but did tell the Two Row Times that the girl "has blood that proves amazing responsiveness to the treatment we are using. We are happy with the results and will continue to monitor her." [...]
Cucumbers seem to have a mixed reputation in the natural health world. A lot of people assume that these cylindrical green fruits, which originated from southern Asia but are now cultivated worldwide, are lacking in the nutrition department because they are comprised of approximately 96 percent water.
While it is true that cucumbers contain fewer vitamins and minerals than most other fruits and vegetables, they do possess other properties that make them a worthwhile addition to our diet. In fact, cucumbers are one of the most heavily studied fruits in the West, and new research demonstrating their considerable health benefits continues to emerge every year.
Rich in disease-fighting lignans and cucurbitacins
Cucumbers are rich in three lignans -- pinoresinol, lariciresinol and secoisolariciresinol -- that are proven to [...]

There are countless chemicals in use all over the world today, many of which have been linked to cancer and other serious illnesses. Once the chemical is linked to these illnesses the excuse is often that they just didn’t know that the long-term effects of these chemicals would cause such disorders. Kind of like smoking, they just didn’t know that smoking would lead to cancer back then, but now they do because they are seeing it first hand. Even after it was proven that smoking caused cancer, however, it took a long time to fully let the public know. When there is money to be lost the truth often becomes very shady.

Spirit Science and Metaphysics
Drugs are our weakness as a species. There is no denying this. Alcohol, tobacco, sugar, caffeine, cocaine, and cannabis are just some which are most commonly used. Not everyone likes to smoke cannabis, and that’s ok. I personally use it very sparingly at a rate of a few times a month. Like any substance, it can be used responsibly, and abused irresponsibly.
It can even be used for the purpose of expanding ones consciousness and stimulating creativity. Regardless of how much we like to smoke it or for what purpose we use it for, there are some undeniable facts about the marijuana plant that few people know about make it one of the most versatile plants ever.
1) Not All Cannabis Gets You Stoned
There are some strains of cannabis that contain very little amounts THC, the chemical compound that gets you high. They instead have high amounts of CBC (cannabidiol) which has amazing medicinal benefits that can treat pain, nausea, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and more. Some marijuana you get that isn’t really potent might just be low in THC and high in CBC, meaning that you will experience complete nervous system relaxation without getting stoned.
There are some people who are opposed to using marijuana even for medicinal reasons, not even realizing that all of the reasons why they resist marijuana are non-existence in low THC strains. Here is an amazing video discussing the amazing health benefits of CBC and what happens to your body after smoking or eating marijuana.
2) Cannabis Cures Cancer
“Cannabis cures cancer” is a sort of internet talking point that gets passed around quite often, but not many people realize the extent of this claim. Here are just a FEW specific example that provide support to the claim that cannabis can cure cancer:
1. Brain Cancer
A study published in the British Journal of Cancer, conducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid, this study determined that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids inhibit tumour growth. They were responsible for the first clinical study aimed at assessing cannabinoid antitumoral action. Cannabinoid delivery was safe and was achieved with zero psychoactive effects. THC was found to decrease tumour cells in two out of the nine patients.
2. Breast Cancer
A study published in the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by the California Pacific Medical Centre determined that cannabidiol (CBD) inhibits human breast cancer cell proliferation and invasion. They also demonstrated that CBD significantly reduces tumour mass.
3. Lung Cancer
A study published in the journal Oncogene, by Harvard Medical Schools Experimental Medicine Department determined that THC inhibits epithelial growth factor induced lung cancer cell migration and more. They go on to state that THC should be explored as novel therapeutic molecules in controlling the growth and metastasis of certain lung cancers.
