How many parents today believe that their babies were born with autism simply because they never had the opportunity to experience them as normal?

The science is definitive: The Hepatitis B vaccine is not only associated with liver disease, it causes it. The specific harm done is known, clearly documented. Low doses of the hepatitis B vaccine with aluminum adjuvant results in loss of mitochondrial integrity, cell death, and apoptosis, particularly in liver cells. (more…)
The formulas I’m currently recommending include Planetary Formulas’ Bupleurum Liver Cleanse, Shiitake Mushroom Supreme and Liver Defense. In addition to this I recommend two or three portions of steamed greens daily, dandelion root tea, whole grains, vegetables, shiitake mushrooms, a glass or two of freshly squeezed organic carrot juice, and fish. Other foods can be included, but these should be included daily. Avoid exceptional stress as it can activate the latent virus in the body. Also avoid refined foods as much as possible. Other substances to avoid include coffee and drugs including marijuana.
I offer the following information to many of my patients who, after being treated with herbs, with all symptoms of liver disease resolved, are still concerned with an elevated viral load test. What if, despite the fact that they indeed had a sick liver, there never was a hepatitis C virus in the first place? Therefore the viral load question becomes a moot point, measuring something that ultimately has no relevance to their liver disease.

Milk thistle’s use for liver health for 2000 years was almost lost under Big Pharma’s medical monopoly. Fortunately, it has experienced a revival as an efficacious natural medicine over the last few decades. And now, recent milk thistle research indicates it may also be useful for treating cancer.
Researchers at the Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and the Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH), both in Houston, have been evaluating the ability of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) to inhibit infection by HIV-1. EGCG is among a group of natural polyphenols, called catechins, found in green tea; it is the most prevalent and active catechin. A report on this evaluation appeared in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (February 2009;123:459-465). There were three coauthors: Christina L. Nance, PhD; Edward B. Siwak, PhD; and William T. Shearer, MD, PhD. For this column, I questioned Dr. Nance about certain findings and points.
Studies have indicated that EGCG inhibits replication of HIV-1 by targeting several steps in the life cycle of HIV-1. In high nonphysiologic concentrations, EGCG reportedly interferes with reverse transcriptase (RT) and protease activity. (more…)
