Just wanted to give you a head’s up on something the mercury group has posted~

Vitamin Research Products ( is no longer stocking DMSA, one of the chelators of mercury and lead.  They just suddenly stopped stocking it and have even removed the page from their website.

This is not good news.  They were the main supplier of DMSA.  Theories are abound that Big Pharma is behind this–buying out the competition.  And if they can buy out natural cures, they can force sick people to buy their side-effect-laden crap.

There are also allegations that Obamacare is limiting natural methods of healing, such as chelation supplements, making it harder for folks to get well. I don’t know this for fact, but it is one of the reasons I have not signed up for the health care.  Another reason is the link to the insurance industry instead of single-payer, which would have been more palatable, being like Medicare for All.

I can tell you that many of us on the group lost jobs as a result of mercury–therefore, we had lost the ability to pay for medical insurance and the ability to pay for supplements that insurance didn’t cover.   But at least the supplements were available…and cheap.  I would have not gotten well without that.  So once again, the poor take a hit for the uber wealthy to make even more profits….

I suspected that Big Pharma would try to grab this part of the market again, because they had in the past and continually try to get some twerp in Congress to do their bidding with making supplements illegal.

With billions of dollars and high-priced lawyers, they have gotten away with trying to take credit for natural healing herbs and methods, such as those used in India.  These were used for thousands of years…and Big Pharma comes along and tries to claim a patent.  Utterly mindboggling.  More here on Big Pharma’s battle to get a share of the market in India. An even better explanation of it here.

Big Pharma tries to claim that compulsory licenses aren’t available for cancer drugs – a lie; or that they are only available for national emergencies – another lie; or that India is establishing a general exception to patents for pharmaceuticals – an even bigger lie.  Sovereigns retain the right under TRIPS to issue compulsory licenses or to allow public, non-commercial use of patented products or processes.  As long as the correct procedures are followed and adequate remuneration is paid, the patent holder has nothing legitimate to complain about – unless, of course, it is a U.S. multinational who doesn’t want an emerging country like India to get in its way.


…or for a group of U.S. citizens who want natural methods to heal their bodies to get their way….

And unfortunately, that’s not all that the greedy are trying to patent.

Lastly, here is a good segment on DN! with Vandana and Mira Shiva–two “uppity” women I admire for fighting the good fight~~

Vandana brings up the point of liability.  It would seem that none of the chemical companies — be it Dow/Union Carbide or any Big Pharma — want to take responsibility for the harm that they cause.  All the profits. None of the guilt.

She also highlights the attitudes towards the poor–they don’t matter so let’s poison them or use them as guinea pigs.

It was great to hear of them speak of their strong mother in the end~~no junk food in the house.  My father, too, did not allow junk food in the house when I was growing up–a parent who cares is not going to feed their child junk.  I heard the other day of parents of my children’s generation feeding their kids nothing but junk…and they don’t see anything wrong with that.  Very unsettling.  Regretfully, I didn’t appreciate my Dad’s wisdom until recently.  I always felt deprived because other kids got to have a “treat” of junk food on Friday night.  Just before the divorce, my sister would make Chef Boy-ar-dee pizzas on Friday night.  I felt happy at getting that “treat”.  Pfft.  The “treat” that kills.

Food is medicine.  Weeds are medicine.  When will we learn to value that which is not valuable by profit-making and make that available to all, not just those with cash in hand??



Fracking wastewater being pumped into wells

Have these people completely lost their minds?

One New York state study found radioactivity in fracking waste water at 267 times the level considered safe for human consumption. Other studies found several cancer-causing contaminants in fracking waste water. The report cites arsenic, lead, hexavalent chromium, barium, chloride, sodium, sulfates, boron, benzene and radioactive agents.


You might remember hexavalent chromium…it was the stuff used by PG & E featured in the movie, Erin Brockovich. 

It, as well as benzene, are known cancer causing agents.  Arsenic and lead, of course, are heavy metals that cause neurological damage and in enough amounts–death.

It is just mindboggling that the fracking proponents look the other way at the damage caused by the fracking process.  All that matters to them is getting the gas out of the ground, no matter the consequences.  Well, it has a way of coming back on you…quality of life goes down…healthcare costs go up…and each generation suffers more DNA damage.

Scientists and Medical Professionals Against Vaccines

Digging deeper, I found this piece with three healthcare professionals–scientists–who are against vaccination…and why they are against it.

Dr. Meryl Nass, the last video, is especially helpful for those who are questioning vaccines.  She illustrates that those spouting the scare tactics of disaster if we don’t get vaccinated are often just spouting “facts” that they have no clue, as the physician claiming knowledge of the statistical analysis of vaccine safety and efficacy.

What’s really puzzling, and heartbreaking, is the insistence that these tiny little babies need to be flooded with these vaccines right after birth.  It’s insanity.  I had chickenpox at six months of age–by the scare tactics, I should have died because my immune system was supposedly not developed enough yet….and yet I lived.

More here.  I’ve linked to this piece before, but it bears repeating.

Why are Doctors Silent? This piece illustrates the upward battle of physicians to voice their concerns.

And you might recall Shane Ellison, the former Big Pharma researcher who quit Big Pharma because of the cholesterol lie–and how that lie has been perpetuated.  Here, he outlines all the reasons he, a scientist, will not vaccinate his own children.

And according to The Indian Journal of Medical Ethics, the polio vaccine program launched by Bill Gates paralyzed 47,500 children in 2011 alone. And those injured by the vaccine died at twice the rate of those infected by “wild” polio!


…easier to see the Bill Gates connection with Stephen Colbert, eh?

Between 1983 and 1990, there was a 423% increase in measles cases among vaccinated individuals. Then in 2006, the largest mumps outbreak in twenty years occurred. Among those infected, 63% were “immunized,” as shown by Neil Miller in Vaccines: Are They Safe and Effective? Others found similar results.

In The Journal of Infectious Diseases, scientists from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine wrote, “Vaccine failure accounted for a sustained mumps outbreak in a highly vaccinated population.”


If parents need further proof of toxicity, they can read vaccine package inserts. The insert for the DPT vaccine from Sanofi Pasteur warns that, “A review by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found evidence for a causal relation between tetanus toxoid and both brachial neuritis and Guillain-Barré syndrome [pain and loss of nerve and motor function].” Makers of the Tripedia vaccine for DTaP state that certain outcomes are so frequent that they had to list them. These reactions include:


Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)
• Anaphylactic reaction
• Cellulitis (a bacterial skin infection)
• Convulsion/Seizures
• Brain dysfunction
• Low muscle tone and strength
Nerve damage
• Hyperventilation/apnea


Cancer cells are normally present in our bodies and our miracle immune system disposes of them.  But when the immune system is compromised, as in chemically laden food, polluted water, polluted air, heavy metal exposure, it cannot perform the miracle of disposing of cancer cells, and they begin to grow.  This fact seems to be left out of the conversation.

Or if it is talked about, it is with a sense of resignation that we can’t do anything about that.  That’s just bull.  We can change things if we are willing to do the work of changing our expectations and lifestyles.  It’s really not that hard, if one is committed to it.


And the vaccine debate continues

Jon Stewart/Samantha Bee are apparently swallowing the Big Pharma kool-aid towards vaccines with this piece on liberal vaccine opponents.

Samantha Bee ridicules the vaccine opponents with nothing to back up her slanted viewpoint.  She shows a brief chart that does not explain in depth what it means, who composed it, how many subjects were included (vaccinated versus non-vaccinated?).  She also ignores the fact that many folks, like myself, have gotten measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox and survived–but I was made terribly ill by mercury amalgams and coal ash–how can that be ignored?

She fails to ask “why?” some folks do well and others do not.

Bee even ridicules Sarah Pope for saying that getting the horses out of the streets–meaning horse manure–led to more hygienic conditions.  That is not disputed by the vaccine proponents–there were open sewers in the streets back in the days of epidemics.  People did not wash their hands with soap and water after using the restroom or using hygienic practices while cooking or handling food.  All of these are factors in keeping diseases in check.

And of course, the biggest factors in immune health–limited toxin exposure and organic, non-grain food, were completely left out of this piece.  Stunning.

She also does not include those whom have been harmed by vaccines–verifiable cases that the Vaccine Court has paid out claims from harm….while Big Pharma is shielded from responsibility of the harm their products cause while raking in $$$ profits in the billions.

Dr. Offitt is featured in this Age of Autism article.  By his own words, he has been made rich off of vaccines…therefore, his pro-vaccine views are hardly unbiased….he’s a prostitute by any other name.  And that’s really an insult to prostitutes because at least they have an honest trade…

“The screaming started four hours after 8-month-old Chaise Irons received a vaccination against rotavirus, recommended in June 1998 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for every infant to prevent serious diarrhea. Within a day he was vomiting and eliminating blood. Doctors performed emergency surgery, saving him by repairing his intestines, which were folding in on one another. A doctor later figured out the vaccine caused Chaise’s problem. In October 1999, after 15 reports of such incidents, the CDC withdrew its recommendation for the vaccination — not because of the problem, the agency claims, but because bad publicity might give vaccines in general a bad name. But a four-month investigation by United Press International found a pattern of serious problems linked to vaccines recommended by the CDC — and a web of close ties between the agency and the companies that make vaccines.”

– Mark Benjamin, United Press International, UPI Investigates: The Vaccine Conflict


On February 23, 2006 the ACIP voted to add Paul Offit’s vaccine, Rotateq, to the U.S. Immunization schedule. As we all know, Dr. Offit has conceded this vaccine “made him rich.” An analyst for Merck notes, “At a cost of $187.50 for the three-dose series, RotaTeq is one of the most expensive vaccines to date; by 2009, the company forecasts that the vaccine could bring in as much as $500 million in annual revenue.”


Did anybody else notice the irony of Jon Stewart/Samantha Bee passing themselves off as “more informed”  while making fun of other non-science persons who protest against vaccines?  They also conveniently left out the fact that there are SCIENTISTS AND MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS who are also questioning vaccine safety and efficacy.

I can’t speak for others, but I am protesting the forced vaccinations.  Everyone has a right to good, unbiased information on vaccines, from which they can make up their own minds whether to vaccinate or not.  They have a right to their own bodies and what goes in them.  I see this as a Fourth Amendment issue–a right to be let alone and a right to privacy.

The idea that if someone doesn’t vaccinate that they’re putting everyone at risk is ludicrous.  They say vaccines protect you from disease by creating antibodies.  If your system has antibodies, it supposedly fights off the disease.  It doesn’t make sense, then, that if I don’t get vaccinated, and get a disease, that I can make you ill even if you are vaccinated.  It makes no sense at all.

Lastly, I have to wonder at Big Pharma’s influence in the media, and Stewart’s show.  (As a side note~  I see where Stephen Colbert also has Dr. Offit on his show–which lends credence to it being pushed by that channel and some money changing hands.  But Colbert also is pushing geoengineering with his good friend Bill Gates…so yeah, not a progressive thinker he is purported to be.)

You can’t watch a news show without every other commercial an ad for a prescription drug–usually loaded with terrible, life-changing side effects.  I rarely watch Stewart any more, so I can’t even comment on his commercial sponsors.  One has to wonder if this piece were “product placement” of sorts–do a big piece on ridiculing anti-vaccine proponents to make Big Pharma look like Saviors….

Helping bees

On to lighter subjects…

A member on the organic farmers’ list posted a message about helping a bee that is on the ground.  If they’re on the ground, that doesn’t necessarily mean they are dead or dying–it probably means they are dead tired from gathering pollen and are resting.  You can help it by mixing up a little sugar water to help it regain its strength.

Just thought I’d pass this along–

The shootings in Santa Barbara

(Side note~Migraine is gone…weird.  I felt like I was getting one Tuesday, and then it went away.  Probably due to the new stress of job and getting away from all grains and chocolate….it’s going to be interesting to see how my body re-adjusts, if my migraines are any clue.)

I got the rare chance of watching Melissa Harris-Perry this morning.  I don’t always agree with her conclusions, but do enjoy the stimulating program.  She talked about the Santa Barbara shootings and the gender bias of the shooter, Elliott Rodger.  She mentioned a video by him, but refused to play it, so I went looking for it on youtube:


Wow. Just Wow.  Two minutes into this video, and you can see why women rejected this guy.  Narcissistic. Self-absorbed. Playing the victim. Shallow. Entitled.

Over and over again, he claims rejection by women and doesn’t understand why.  Over and over again he says “these beautiful blonde women” are out with “douchebags”….when they should be out with “wonderful” him.  Women have great intuition (which they don’t always listen to) and probably could see this guy’s warped view of himself and the world and his negative energy towards them…as is now known by his murdering people.

MHP’s guest stated that this guy had a sense of entitlement.  I can see that in the video.  By his view, he was such a “terrific” guy, and was entitled to the beautiful women, but couldn’t get them….so he killed them.

There are so many things tied to Elliott Rodger’s view –one of which is the society’s rape/violence culture against women.

Rodger focuses on rejection by beautiful women.  I would lay bets that there were women who liked Elliott…but they weren’t “beautiful” on the outside.  He probably treated them badly…as he claims he was treated.  It’s okay, you see, to treat women who are “ugly” by society’s standards in a disrespectful and dismissive tone.  This makes me so angry I could spit nails right now.

They brought up that Elliott was autistic.  Okay, you all know what I’m going to say next…he was a high functioning autistic, with apparent aggression and rage — both tied to mercury poisoning.  Will anyone explore that possibility while investigating this case?  Probably not.  And another chance at recognizing mercury/heavy metal poisoning/toxicity’s influence in crime is ignored.

From the first link:

Studies involving a large sample of autistic and schizophrenic patients found that over 90 % of those tested had high levels of the milk protein beta-casomorphine-7 in their blood and urine and defective enzymatic processes for digesting milk protein(92,93,83), and similarly for the corresponding enzyme needed to digest wheat gluten(92,94)

Due to the large number of vaccinations that are now containing mercury thimerosal, most children have been documented to receive mercury exposure far above the government health guideline for mercury, and the number of causes of autism has increased over 600% in the last decade[81,A,43b].



A group of violent criminals had signif. higher levels of hair lead and cadmium levels than non violent controls(62b)


Studies at the Argonne National Laboratory found that the majority of delinquents and criminals had high metals levels such as cadmium and lead, and to fall into 2 categories. One group with high copper and low zinc, sodium potassium tended to have extreme tempers, while another group with low zinc and copper, but high sodium and potassium tended to be sociopathic(115). But it was found that treatment of delinquent or violent prone individuals for metals related problems including nutritional therapy usually produced significant improvements in mood, violent behavior, and functionality- with complete cure in the majority of cases (115,119,120).


A note here about hair analysis–Dr. Cutler is of the belief that hair levels are helpful, but not 100% indicators of toxicity.  Time and again, mercury poisoned folks have tested low mercury on hair tests — NOT because they are not poisoned, but rather, because their bodies are not secreting mercury.  They lack the ability to efficiently rid the body of mercury.  Once they began to chelate, and their poor bodies were able to function half-way decently, their hair tests have changed to high mercury levels.

It is almost a rule that on the mercury support group, that we are gluten and dairy intolerant–lack of enzymes since mercury interferes with it.

It will be interesting to see the developing story.  God Bless the parents and loved ones who lost someone.

The pharmacy in your yard… **edited

(I want to preface this with:  I am not a health professional.  Please consult with your health care provider before breathing, er I mean, before trying anything outside of Big Pharma, er I mean, before trying anything I suggest here.  You are responsible for your own health decisions. Which is why you should run, not walk, away from American medicine.)

I wanted to explore the link between dandelions and cancer, and found this. 

It supports my own intuition that this plant that we categorized as a bothersome weed could be our lifeline.

It’s just amazing that we’re pouring toxic chemicals–those same chemicals linked to cancer –on a plant that could very well cure that cancer.  (I’m not pointing fingers, mind you, because I am guilty of doing this in my past life, before becoming informed and aware.)

Breast cancer is especially of interest to me because my grandmother died from breast cancer…at least we think it was breast cancer–by the time it was discovered, it had metastasized all over her body, but the concentration was in her breasts.

I still have my two breast lumps, discovered nearly two years ago, but they shrunk after upping my iodine.  And in the last couple of years–drinking dandelion tea every day. Part of the reason for the lumps is the messed up hormones from mercury poisoning…so I am hopeful that they will disappear once I get this horrible poison gone from my system.

I also drink rose hip tea every day–loaded with natural Vitamin C….after reading that synthesized vitamins, such as “C”, are not really that good for us.  The body doesn’t recognize the synthetic version as it does the natural version–which makes sense to me.

Dr. Horner’s list begins with what I’ve been saying all along–eating organic food is the best medicine for your body to do its miracle work of healing itself. Unfortunately, she also recommends grains–which I now see as poison, as well.

A minor quibble with the good fats suggestion–butter from cows allowed to eat naturally–grass, without hormones and antibiotics–is good for us, too.

**edited to add:  she recommends flaxseeds every day — you should be aware that those of us of Irish heritage lack the necessary enzyme to digest flaxseeds.  I was taking flaxseed oil every day thinking it was a good thing, but I started having such nausea with it that I stopped.  It was only later that I found out about the lacking enzymes.

Teas are okay, but Dr. Campbell-McBride (GAPS), allows only loose leaf tea–not processed.   Tea  is high in salicylates, which can cause some severe issues, such as bladder pain and urgency, even blood in the urine. I guess it’s what you call too much of a good thing.

I’ve tried turmeric, too, but didn’t have results with it.  I guess that is one of the individual aspects of “food medicine.”  One size does not fit all.  Listen to your body, and learn to recognize when it is telling you to “stop”.

I wouldn’t recommend stevia, either, as I’ve read of issues with it.  Honey or maple syrup are preferred sweeteners–naturally offering benefits. I might note that royal jelly–from bees–has been touted as energizing–but if you’re allergic, it can have the opposite effect.  I began taking it before I knew I was mercury toxic, and I felt pretty good the first couple of weeks I took it.  Then, I began to feel more tired and developed a sore throat.  When I discontinued the royal jelly, I felt better.  In the interest of science, I took the royal jelly again, and again felt worse with a sore throat after just a few days.  I don’t know if this is a result of the mercury, because it does cause one to be allergic to everything, or whether it was just too high a concentration for my body.

I also disagree with soy–it is a known to impact the thyroid negatively.

So, yeah, nature has provided for us…we just need to value it.




Vaccine injury: Nothing to see, here, folks…move along..

Child Health Safety has an alarming post up of not only health officials covering up vaccine injury and death, but the police and media going along with their silence.  The link to the Australian bloggers has documents that remove all doubt that the officials knew the vaccine was involved in serious injury and death…and covered it up.

Again, as I’m reading the reports, there is glaring lack of information on how diet and environmental toxins affect one’s ability to fight off the flu and other infections.  Not to mention the lack of informing people to wash their hands after using the restroom, before eating or cooking, etc.

Here’s the national vaccine information center’s eight questions to ask before you vaccinate.

I know with my personal experience with State Health officials–they are not forthcoming with all information so that the public can make their own decisions.  As I’ve blogged about before, they know that DEET is linked to seizures, but continued to recommend it to protect against mosquito bites, and therefore, West Nile Virus transmitted by them.  However, when I asked the director of the Health dept. I was stationed in whether citronella was as effective at repelling mosquitoes, he replied that it was, but that it had to be reapplied every thirty minutes to be effective.  The implication was that the public was too lazy to keep reapplying it.  I thought that people should be informed of the risks, and make their own decisions of whether they wanted to risk neurological damage with a chemical like DEET.  Also, at my house,  I had citronella candles on my patio table and was not bothered by mosquitoes…so in certain circumstances, you may not have to apply anything to your skin at all.  (Keep in mind that the skin is an organ and does absorb chemicals.)


Ice Cream

The local radio station airs a program where locals call in to sell or trade stuff they don’t want anymore.  The hostess was remarking about buying a bread machine and how it came from a moment of inspiration (cold winter day)…but, yeah, didn’t progress past the thought…and she remarked how much stuff we buy that we don’t need.  Don’t get me started…I’ve been through so much that material stuff no longer has its hold on me like before.  It’s hard to get past that, because of the way our society values things instead of people, but once you do get past it, you become so much more free.

Anyway, the host talked about ice cream makers and how you cranked it a couple of times, and said “enough of this, I’m going to ___ (he names a popular ice cream place).”

Well, I started thinking about how much I loved home-made hand-cranked ice cream….

I was introduced to it at my summer camp.  If you have never had hand-cranked ice cream, I highly, highly recommend it.  Delicious.

The thing about it is that it was a group effort–all of us in our camp cabin took turns cranking.  We actually argued over who would get to crank!

I think there is a lesson in there–what may seem too hard as an individual–can be achieved if we all took turns carrying the “load”.


Take Action against National Restaurant Association

The Mafia, in another form…

Tuesday, May 13, 2014
CONTACT: Nikolina Lazic,

The National Restaurant Association or the “Other NRA” is a lobbing powerhouse doing the dirty work of many Fortune 500 restaurant corporations like McDonald’s, Darden, and Taco Bell.

NRA is a leader in the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) where it has pushed a measure to ban paid leave ordinances at the local level. (they don’t want to give those restaurant workers a day off when they have the flu!) It is a leading opponent of raising the minimum wage in states, helping Oklahoma’s governor ban local paid sick days and minimum wage hikes in one fell swoop! Plus, the NRA has successfully kept the tipped minimum wage at $2.13 since 1991!

Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, Mark Fiore, takes the Other NRA’s corporate agenda of profits over people to task in his new video, check it at: and then take action below!

Tell your elected officials that you find the NRA’s wage-crushing agenda hard to stomach!
