Part one:  ultra sound to kill pathogens

If you are like us, you have been acutely aware of the increasing doomsday prep mood in this country (USA) for a while.  Whether it is the prescient warnings of Gerald Celente the Futurist or the wonderfully done show on National Geographic channel, Doomsday Preppers,  you cannot ignore the smoke signals getting closer all the time.  Maybe there is fire in them thar hills coming our  way after all.

Everyone has their own theories about what it might entail and each has their own bailiwick as far as survival skills and recommendations.  We love it all. However, there is one area no one has explored much. What happens to a society that has grown accustomed to easy access, quality medical services when the grid goes down or the unthinkable happens?  What do you do when strange infections or pandemics are running rampant and the normal approach to medicine is hampered by the lack of a supply chain, delivery trucks not moving due to gas shortages, etc. etc?  There are numerous scenarios that are very possible ranging from and EMP attack, a disease outbreak, major earthquakes, war, terrorism, and the most likely, a financial crash and immobilizing depression.  Where will your doctor be?  How will you get medical care if the infrastructure is down?  You get the idea?

Well, you can storehouse drugs and medicine.  That may be why there are shortages in many drugs of late, the very rich making sure there will be supplies for them.  But, what happens when they run out? Besides, there are no antibiotics that work on viruses; they are for bacterial infections.   And then there all the machines we depend on, not to mention the computers to access records etc.  In a real emergency that affects the entire country or system, there will be shortages of everything including clean water and electrical power to run things.  Many health workers will be busy trying to help their own families and friends.  First come first serve.  Hoarding of medical supplies will be the norm.

You can learn a lot of battlefield medicine and first aid etc. but in the end, you might need a dentist or a surgeon, or just a simple antibiotic that has not expired its shelf life.  In a real emergency this could mean life or death.   Note: for years establishment medicine has actively suppressed many valid and effective cures due to greed and ignorance.  See the great book, Politics in Healing by Daniel Haley.

SURVIVALIST AND DOOMSDAY PREPPERS ARE A HARDY AND CREATIVE BUNCH and understand that there are many great solutions that have been suppressed, e.g. In South America it was common for snake bite to be treated effectively by taking the leads from a car or truck battery and shocking the wound.  This somehow disrupted the chemical composition of the poison, (As seen in old issue of the Lancet OR see  ). Just so, there are numerous ways to kill pathogens. We will get into a few.

SO WHAT IS THE ANSWER?  Let us suggest an alternative solution, an alternative experimental medical device that we have tested personally and found very effective.  This is a small, electronic device that uses ultrasound to kill germs and pathogens (not FDA approved).  This is not as farfetched as you might think. Ultra sound is used to kill pathogens  in canning facilities.  Establishment medicine has used various types of ultra sound in many procedures for years.  They have just not come over to the electro- medicine approach because the system is heavily controlled by the big pharmaceutical companies and they don’t want the competition.  There is not enough space to go into the detail. You can find all pertinent info at RifeTech.

The main point here is that this device, through its automatic and idiot proof scanning procedure, can kill most pathogens quickly and easily with little or no side effects other than the normal Herxheimer, which is just the body getting rid of toxins form the breakdown of the pathogens for elimination by the body.

How is this a doomsday prep device?  It operates on no more watts of power than a standard light bulb (the Edison type)!  In other words it can be run with a deep cycle or marine battery in the field, or even off a car battery with a simple inverter you can buy anywhere.  This would be lifesaver in the event of a wound being infected, gang green setting in, a biological attack, a flu epidemic, pneumonia, etc.  Not all germs are subject to destruction in this manner, but most are.  Anthrax is one of those tricky beasts because it hides in a spore state.  Herpes is another sneaky beast that hides in the spinal and nervous system and can be contained but not completely eradicated. But, as we will show in Part two, there are other approaches that can be used to supplement, just not as practical or mobile.  As always, we recommend a combination of approaches that offer the shotgun approach, since specific diagnosis without present day technology might be impossible. 

So, we have a light,portable machine, that works on just a few watts of power (a light bulb has 75 or 100 plus watts) and is effective against many if not most pathogens, including bacterha, viruses, protozoa, parasites, flukes, etc. ---see Alberta Lecture----and the best part is, it costs less than $2,000 (while you can still get it, since it is not manufactured but built on request by the inventor!) 

We found it is tough and built to last.  We have played with this unit for several years and it stills runs well.  The author used it many times on tooth infections with fantastic results, although  a dentist is still needed eventually for abscesses etc.  Various and sundry infections yielded easily and quickly ranging from flu attacks, ear and throat infections, a carbuncle or two, and infected cuts.  Others we know have reported incredible results with more serious diseases but we cannot mention this or make any claims because it is illegal and we know good people rotting in jail because they made that error (this is a disclaimer just in case: we are not doctors and cannot give any medical advice).  The best way to be sure is to try it.  One can study the available literature and make a sensible decision based on the facts.  ‘Nough said.

The inventor builds each one himself right in the US.  He cannot manufacture these devices because that would violate current law for an experimental device.  So, if you are prepper or survivalist, a renegade, or just a responsible adult trying to prepare for any emergency, we would advise checking this out and ordering early if you want to have one in time.  It is advised to study up a little before contacting the inventor so your questions are intelligent and individual. We are aware of many devices that claim similar principles and results but we found them unconvincing, theoretical or just plain cumbersome and expensive to try.  Simplicity and effectiveness on a budget, is pure elegance.  We love this machine.

In Part 2 and 3 we will go into various other Doomsday Prepper approaches to alternative medicine that will work even if the grid goes down and you only have the bare essentials to live, like oxygen therapies, colloidal silver, effective herbs, etc.

Valuable Nutrition Tips That Allow you to Remain Healthful.

By Garry Henriques

Consumers commonly blame marketing and the food industry for their poor diets as well as "good food" that is not affordable. However, your nutrition is your choice and your choice alone. This article provides many suggestions for tailoring your diet so you are able to eat healthy at an affordable price.

If you're pregnant, make sure you're getting enough iron in your diet. For a normal adult woman you should be taking in 18mg a day of iron, but during pregnancy this should be upped to 27mg a day. The baby needs a lot of iron to develop and if you don't have enough it can cause anemia which can cause problems for you and the baby.

Eating chicken is good for you as long as you follow a couple of simple rules. You should always remove all of the skin from the chicken because it is loaded with fat. Another good idea is to eat white meat chicken because it has less fat than dark meat portions.

Have a doctor check your blood for levels of various minerals and vitamins in your blood stream. Ask for a complete check. That way, if you find you are deficient in any one thing, or a few things, you can immediately start taking steps to change your diet so you stay well and healthy.

Liven up your homemade omelet, by including fresh or frozen vegetables. Omelets have an irresistible attraction when they contain fresh or frozen vegetables. Vegetables add interest, as well as, texture, color, flavor and vital nutrients. Just slice some up, saute and then add them to the omelet just before you flip and close it up.

Try your best to incorporate whole grains and fiber in your diet because they will leave you feeling fuller longer. Instead of trying to go over board with the wheat germ, you can sprinkle a few teaspoons of it over some basic cereal that is made from whole grains.

A great nutritional tip is to eat something before you go to a thanksgiving dinner. If you go to a thanksgiving dinner on an empty stomach, you're more likely to overindulge. By eating a little something before you go to a thanksgiving dinner, you'll fill up quicker and you won't eat as much.

A good nutrition tip is to eat darker colored vegetables. Darker colored vegetables tend to offer the best nutrition. A good example of a darker vegetable would be something like broccoli or spinach. Avoid lighter colored vegetables such as celery and iceberg lettuce because they offer very little in terms of nutrition.

As part of your nutrition plan, see if you can reduce drinking soda. You'll reduce your sugar and calorie intake and avoid unnatural, artificial sweeteners. Drinking plain water is unappetizing for some people, but most enjoy the clean, natural taste. If you must, you can add small amounts of fruit juice to add a bit of flavor.

You have made a conscious decision to eat more nutritious foods, but you really have trouble sticking to this balanced diet while at the office. It seems like the vending machine at work is calling your name to eat those sweet or salty snacks which contain too much sugar or salt. To help overcome this temptation, pack some nutritious snacks such as raw vegetables to eat when you get the urge to snack.

Bananas are a very nutritious and convenient food and make a great addition to your diet. They contain lots of potassium and fiber, and lots of Vitamin B6. They also come in convenient single-serving packages with biodegradable packaging, and are sturdy enough to be taken everywhere. They are easy to chew and digest, as well.

Mushrooms come in a multitude of varieties and add amazing flavor to many dishes. This is a good enough reason to use them. But they have great additional benefits nutritionally. Mushrooms contain protein as well as many trace minerals and needed vitamins--especially the B vitamins such as biotin.

You've learned by now that nutrition isn't really that complicated. Once you've mastered some basic information, you'll be able to successfully change your diet to be healthier. Just remember what you've learned from this article. If you apply this information to your daily life, soon you'll wonder why you were ever anxious about nutrition.

Women must know that the choice of the medical surgeon as well as the implant are the two main factors to take into consideration before heading for the invasive procedure since both are crucial. If the medical surgeon is not professional they could result in not having the expected or wanted outcomes.

Definitely whenever a woman goes for the medical surgery operation it means that she has made a good mind about it but here you need to know that the physical and mental, both, health is essential for such a plastic surgery to be carried out.

There are proper md(medical doctor) specialized in the cosmetic surgery now to take this kind of surgical operation now and they excel their field too. therefore women don't need to worry much concerning the invasive procedure however the skilled surgeon anyway tell them concerning the entire surgical procedure in details.

Tips in Choosing Wedding Dresses

By Christopher V. Grant

Is 2012 really the end of world? I do not know, but I do really know that many of my friends plan to getting married in this year, after I have shopped with them for wedding dresses for many times, I find myself fall in love with lace wedding dresses. Lace may be the oldest kind of material ever used in making wedding dresses. I also think that ball gown wedding dresses are very beautiful, but they are too heavy, mermaid wedding dress asks too much of your figure, lace wedding dresses are truely elegant and delicate, and it fits best of royal wedding theme.

As vintage a single pieces are in vogue in current years, lace wedding dress must be my a single and only choice. It is every girl's dream to be probably the most beautifl bride in the planet on her huge day, so they're able to be very careful when choosing wedding dresses, which includes my close friends.

As the styles of wedding dresses increase year by year, I still think that the first sight is very important. Maybe not every person believe in this, but I do. I have a friend, she just fall in love with her wedding dress at first sight, and says this is it with joy, I can see her eyes shining when she look at her dress, that is neither the best sale nor the most expensive one. So, everyone has different appetites, you can not say which one is better than the other, you just need to choose the one you like the best. In my opinion, this is the most crucial thing when you choose your dream wedding dress.

Several couples prefer to strategy their wedding one year earlier, so they can decide numerous issues with each other and in advance. You'll want to decide on your wedding dress in accordance with your wedding theme, if you have choosen the dress ahead of scheduled time, you'll be able to decide on your wedding theme in accordance with your dress, all in all, your wedding dress and wedding theme must be in keeping with one another. Otherwise your wedding will seem very weired.

Another thing I have learnt from my friends' weddings is that before you are going to buy your wedding dresses, you should also pay attention to those fashion mazagines and also fashion shows of world famous designers' (among those wedding dress designers, vera wang is my favorite) new works. By doing this, you can learn lastest fashion trends, it can give you inspirations in choosing your own wedding dresses.

You might not have heard of magnetic  therapy.  It has been extensively applied for many years using both static and pulse magnetic fields in alternative medicine but has not yet achieved FDA approval or wide acceptance by the public.   Many famous alternative doctors have praised magnetic therapy quite highly.  See end of article for some reference articles.

Static and pulsed magnetic fields have their differences but are very similar in effects.  Whereas the static approach may require a magnet weighing thousands of pounds and hundreds of hours of therapy, a pulse magnetic device can attain its goal with a relatively portable unit and a lot less time.  The physics are too complex for this brief article. They both have their advantages, but it is hard to find the several ton, static magnets in a town near you.  (Also, we are not saying that small magnets are not useful; they just cannot compare in efficacy to larger, more sophisticated and more powerful units.)

What is important is the sometimes astounding results that are affected by magnetic therapy  although no claims can be made at this time without the completion of IRBs being run for FDA approval.  We scanned the internet for familiar clinics we used to know about and could not find them.  They may still be there, but are not easy to locate.  Our friend who was a highly renowned orthopedic surgeon, ran one for several years but has apparently retired.  The reputable clinics may have had to move off shore to avoid harassment from the establishment.  No one likes competition, especially if it is better.

We have found several devices that offer varying degrees of professional strength treatment possibilities, and these are all under the classification of pulsed magnetic therapy.  Only one unit seems to have the “juice” to get the results sought, the HMP by physicist and inventor Gary Wade.  There may be others but we are not aware of them at this time.  The closest is a clone (The P3) to this original machine which has basically the same internals but is offered at a much higher price; perhaps due to marketing costs?  In any event, the one we found, is built in accordance with a commissioning agreement by the inventor himself,  and  is basically meant for treatment of horses and other large animals.  It is offered as an experimental device under current law and can be acquired for around 12.5K. 

This seems a lot unless you compare it to comparable devices like the Papimi which goes for  many times that amount if you can find it.  It was banned in the US for some obscure reason.  But, that is not unusual in the US where most effective alternative devices are banned or ridiculed as quackery by hired disinformation specialists, or the FDA, AMA, peer review boards, etc.;  one of the short-comings  of corporatism run amuck.

If you have been patient enough to get this far, then you shall be rewarded.  We came up with an idea, (not new or original) for the peasant class, (those of us not in the 1% bracket who can afford to buy it or go to a swanky resort offshore etc.) to afford an otherwise expensive machine.  Time shares have worked in the past when real estate was in its golden years,  and a similar idea would work well with alternative medical devices.  Or, perhaps some kind of health club limited to a few members who invest in such a device and share it fairly.  Of course, “fairly” is the operative word.  But this could be easily worked out with a simple written letter and notarized.  We cannot offer legal advice as to how this would work.  Perhaps, if there were four people, they would each own 25% and each pay 25% of the price. Each would be able use the device a quarter of the time, which could be split any way that was fair.  Any combination of percentages would work since some members of the group might only need to use it 10% or more like 30%.  Seems a good way to afford something like this, since when we are using a therapeutic device, it is not constant and we have to account for the time the body requires to heal, repair and eliminate toxins etc.  Plenty of time for others to use it wisely.  The only limitation we found was the weight due to the rather heavy electro-magnet.  One healthy person can move the device but it would be more appropriate to have it remain in one stable location.

AGAIN, we are not recommending the HMP or Horse Magnetic Pulser for human use although we have tried it many times and benefited from it with no untoward effects.  If you decide to use it for self experimentation that is your prerogative and you should probably not shout it from the treetops and try to impress your MD friends.  They do not like the competition, and it is beyond their pay grade unless they have a degree in physics and electronics.  But, if you are looking for a good alternative to surgery and drugs in treating the type of problems and injuries that magnetic therapy is ideal for, then this may be your answer.  We would advise only that you make a thorough study of the available information and ask questions etc.  Check out the video and articles at:

The Most Important Things to Know About Hormonal Acne

Acne is a serious skin problem that can bother both teens and adults. Most people want to look their best all the time, but this might not be possible if the face is infested with acne. Although it is not just the skin that determines beauty, it does help with sex appeal if the skin is free from blemishes.
Prevention is often better than a cure, and knowing why acne occurs can keep you from doing things that can lead to outbreaks of acne.
Learning about the different ways to get rid of acne fast can help you deal with the situation with optimism.
What is Hormonal Acne?
Hormonal acne is produced when there is a sudden change in the level of hormones in the body. The male hormone androgen can cause the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum, thus clogging the dirt and dead cells beneath the hair follicles.
This can lead to the accumulation of bacteria, and later results in the growth of white heads, pimples, and worse-acne. This is typical among boys and girls during puberty, resulting in teen acne.
Adult acne is slightly different. Sudden hormonal imbalances in adults may be brought about by things like a woman's menstrual cycle, pregnancy, stress, and other health related problems. When the body is not cared for properly, the tendency is for some of the organs in the body not to function well. An unusual increase or decrease in the amount of androgen is one effect of this irregularity.
How to Cure Hormonal Acne?
Acne in teens may disappear by itself once the body becomes accustomed to the changes brought about by puberty. For this reason, it may not be necessary to cure teen acne; or rather, treating it may only exacerbate the situation. Nevertheless, those infected with acne are advised to keep the face clean, and stay as far away as possible from pollutants like cigarette smoke and dust.
Consulting a dermatologist is a must, especially when acne does not seem to get any better for weeks, and of course, to know the right measures to take.
Topical solutions alone will not work as treatment for adult acne that is caused by hormonal imbalance.
Medications like oral contraceptives (also known as the pill) and hormone injection may also be required. On the other hand, both teens and adults can safely use face masks for acne to help remove dirt and dead cells that piled up within the inner layer of the skin. The best acne treatment is something that will not impair your health in any way, and can show favorable results in an instant.
Face masks for acne can also help loosen up the facial muscles, and reduce certain discomfort caused by the break out of pimples.
There are various causes of acne, and specialists in skin science continuously develop methods to address specific issues related to acne. Some of the best acne products are widely available in today's market, and these should not cost you much.
Remember, it will help to stay positive in knowing that acne is curable even when it is caused by hormones. So keep looking for the right products that will help treat and diminish your acne.

HEALTH INSURANCE, has become so expensive that most people are being squeezed out of the system.  Whatever you might think of Obama Care, it is pretty clear from the numbers that it will wind up costing the American taxpayer a lot more than promised.  But one way or another, whether it is nullified as a law or not, the cost of medical care in the US is skyrocketing.  To bring it down and to make it available to all equally, will render the quality of service much less as it has in Canada, where waiting for “non-essential” care is normal and getting worse.
The worst part may be that people have been educated to believe that the Western form of allopathic medicine, based on surgery and drugs, is the ONLY valid form of medicine.  This is due to a combination of factors but mostly to the pressure of the AMA and its ugly step sister the FDA to ban and suppress any competition to establishment medicine.
Are there alternatives if health insurance is cancelled and regular medical help is just too expensive?  Yes, there are many good ones but it takes effort to dig them out and test them. As pointed out in the article below, the best time to research alternative medicine is BEFORE you get sick because then the fear and pressure is so great most people fold and go along with the regular medical program never realizing they might have done much better with an alternative to surgery, radiation, drugs, etc. and all the attendant side effects.  Not to mention the fact that most allopathic medicine is extremely expensive and rarely offers a cure, just suppression of symptoms and at a high cost of the severe damage to the body and immune system that most surgical, radiological and pharmaceutical solutions produce.

This article offers some very good ideas:
