Healing Tooth Decay: Making the Price Diet Work for You

Today on The Truther Girls, Ramiel Nagel, author of ‘Cure Tooth Decay’ returns to help teach us how to make the Weston A. Price diet work for us, despite our limited access to whole, natural foods.
I have been trying to follow this diet for the last couple of months, and because I have very limited access to some of the staples of the diet, I found that it was difficult and stressful to follow it. A lot of times, i would end up just not eating very much and feeling hungry and irritable. Disheartened, I told Ramiel about this, who gave me some good news: even if you can’t get everything in the diet and follow it perfectly, you have quite a lot of leeway and can make it work even within some constraints.
So today, we are going to talk about some of the difficulties with the diet and how to work around them. If you have been following the diet and having trouble with it, this information may be very useful to you.

Ramiel’s website where you can buy his book ‘Cure Tooth Decay’ is curetoothdecay.com

He will be on with me from 2:00-3:00pm EST. You can listen live at americanfreedomraido.com or download the archive from americanfreedomradio.com/TrutherGirls_11

Chat room is truthergirls.chatango.com
Call-in number if you would like to speak to Ramiel is 402-237-2525

Radiation Poisoning Help

This information was sent to me by a friend. He had gathered it all from Naturalnews.com. Given that the fallout from the reactor meltdown in Japan may spread worldwide, I thought people may find these tips helpful. Sorry about the formatting, he had just put this together for personal use.

• Rosemary Found to Offer Best Protection against Radiation Poisoning Eating a diet high in apples, citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables, drinking red wine, and using fresh rosemary have been scientifically shown to be effective. Supplements of rosemary extract containing carnosic and rosmarinic acids are widely available. Supplements of DIM offer higher doses of one of the most potent compounds in cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli sprouts are the best source of sulphoraphane, another highly potent compound in cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli sprouts are available as supplements too. Making a pitcher of fresh vegetable juice several times a week for all family members to drink is a great way to fortify everyone against an environment that has turned against them. The juice should contain high amounts of broccoli, cabbage or other cruciferous vegetables. Adding a small slice of fresh ginger will give the juice an appealing flavor. Use only organic or fresh locally grown vegetables if they are available.

• Protect your health (and your thyroid) with potassium iodide in case of a nuclear emergency or terrorism event
• the FDA released its Guidance on Potassium Iodide (KI) as a Thyroid Blocking Agent in Radiation Emergencies, which was designed to prescribe other federal agencies’ and also local governments’ use of potassium iodide “in the event that radioactive iodine is released into the environment.”
• According to the FDA, potassium iodide’s ability to protect against radioactively-induced cancer is “well-established.” The FDA goes on to explain, “When administered in the recommended dose, KI is effective in reducing the risk of thyroid cancer in individuals or populations at risk for inhalation or ingestion of radioiodines. KI floods the thyroid with non-radioactive iodine and prevents the uptake of the radioactive molecules, which are subsequently excreted in the urine.” In other words, potassium iodide occupies the thyroid gland with “good” iodine, so that it will be too busy to absorb cancer-causing, radioactive iodine. However, as the FDA states, in order for it to be most effective, you must take the right dose of potassium iodide for your age and level of toxic exposure, within three to four hours of exposure and daily until the exposure is over.
• Given the way that potassium iodine works to prevent the thyroid gland from absorbing radioactive iodine, it is obvious that the use of it could potentially cause some negative thyroid effects. In his Complete Guide to Health and Nutrition, Gary Null warns for all potassium iodide users “to be aware that, if you suddenly deluge your perfectly normal thyroid gland with large amounts of supplementary iodine, you can inhibit its ability to produce thyroxine.” Thyroid damage from potassium iodide use is unfortunately most common in the elderly. If an elderly person has thyroidal goiter, potassium iodide can cause hyperthyroidism, according to PDR for Nutritional Supplements authors Sheldon Saul Hendle and David Rorvik. In fact, the FDA advises that “anyone over 40 should be treated with KI only if the predicted exposure is high enough to destroy the thyroid and induce lifelong hypothyroidism (thyroid deficiency).”
• As with any substance, someone who has never taken potassium iodide before may suddenly develop an allergic reaction. Usually an allergic response to potassium iodide affects the skin the most, taking the form of rashes or acne, reports to Dr. Elson M. Haas. According to an American Cancer Society statement that Professor Ralph W. Moss calls “outdated,” excessive use of potassium iodide, even without allergy, may cause pimples, swelling of the glands similar to mumps, runny eyes and nose and impotence. However, in his fairly recent book, Health and Nutrition Secrets, Dr. Russell L. Blaylock echoes the “outdated” American Cancer Society statement: “Higher doses in both adults and babies can cause a greater number of side effects and offers no further protection. In general, the side effects are mild and include swelling of the salivary glands, a metallic taste in the mouth, sore teeth and gums, gastrointestinal upset and/or skin rashes.” Though these potential side effects, in my opinion, should not be enough to dissuade you from taking potassium iodide in the event of a nuclear emergency, they should be enough to warn you not to “overdose” yourself on potassium iodide.
• On the other hand, there has also been a historical association between potassium iodide and cancer, the very disease that it is supposed to prevent. In the famous case involving anti-cancer tonic creator Harry Hoxsey, a number of cancer specialists testified that potassium iodide, which was one of the ingredients in Hoxsey’s mixture, might actually speed up the growth of cancerous tumors. However, many other researchers deny the link between potassium iodide and faster tumor growth.
• The Hoxsey case and the beliefs expressed in it have been a source of controversy since the initial popularity of Hoxsey’s treatment. Now, in light of recent terrorist attacks on the world and the possibility of attack with radioactive weapons, individual local governments, federal agencies and the medical community as a whole have no choice but to seriously rethink their former opinions on potassium iodide and once again weigh the risks and benefits.

The experts speak on potassium iodide and its effects:
• “Potassium iodide and possible nuclear attacks or disasters”
• If you leave the fate of your own health up to a bunch of state bureaucrats, you’re a fool. Everybody needs to have some potassium iodide on hand to protect themselves from radiation poisoning caused by nuclear accidents or nuclear terrorism. I’ve been recommending this since 1997, and finally, the feds starting promoting the idea after 9/11. But many states refuse to protect their own citizens. Their plans? “We’ll evacuate everybody in time.” Sure they will. And my dog can play the piano. 
”Some states refuse to distribute potassium iodide, leaving residents vulnerable to nuclear accidents”
• KI works best if used within 3 – 4 hours of exposure.
“Frequently Asked Questions on Potassium Iodide” by the FDA

“How potassium iodide works against the effects of a nuclear attack”
• In December 2001, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a final “Guidance on Potassium Iodide as a Thyroid Blocking Agent in Radiation Emergencies.” The objective of the document is to provide guidance to other Federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), and to state and local governments regarding the safe and effective use of potassium iodide (KI) as an adjunct to other public health protective measures in the event that radioactive iodine is released into the environment. The adoption and implementation of the recommendations are at the discretion of the state and local governments responsible for developing regional emergency-response plans related to radiation emergencies. The recommendations in the guidance address KI dosage and the projected radiation exposure at which the drug should be used. This guidance updates FDA’s 1982 recommendations. 
”Frequently Asked Questions on Potassium Iodide” by the FDA

• Less iodine is lost from organically bound sources (as in foods such as kelp) because your body absorbs it better than it does iodine in potassium iodide supplements. There have been no documented cases of iodine poisoning. However, be aware that if you suddenly deluge your perfectly normal thyroid gland with large amounts of supplementary iodine, you can inhibit its ability to produce thyroxine. 

Complete Guide Health Nutrition by Gary Null, page 410

1. What does potassium iodide (KI) do?
• The effectiveness of KI as a specific blocker of thyroid radioiodine uptake is well established. When administered in the recommended dose, KI is effective in reducing the risk of thyroid cancer in individuals or populations at risk for inhalation or ingestion of radioiodines. KI floods the thyroid with non-radioactive iodine and prevents the uptake of the radioactive molecules, which are subsequently excreted in the urine.
• 2. Can potassium iodide (KI) be used to protect against radiation from bombs other than radioactive iodine?
Potassium iodide ( KI) works only to prevent the thyroid from uptaking radioactive iodine. It is not a general radioprotective agent.
• 6. What dosages of potassium iodide (KI) should be taken for specific exposure levels?
• 
Exposures greater than 5 cGy: 
Birth through 2 mos. – 16 mg. 
1 mo. through 3 yrs. – 32 mg. 
3 yrs through 18 yrs. – 65 mg. (Adolescents>150 pounds should take adult dose.) 
Exposures greater than 10 cGy: 
18 yrs through 40 yrs. – 130 mg 
Exposures greater than 500 cGy: 
Adults over 40 yrs – 130 mg. 
”Frequently Asked Questions on Potassium Iodide” by the FDA
• Older people with nodular goiters are at risk of developing hyperthyroidism from use of potassium iodide and iodized salt. Potassium iodide and iodized salt may exacerbate symptoms in some with autoimmune thyroiditis. 
PDR for Nutritional Supplements by Sheldon Saul Hendle and David Rorvik, page 570
• Finally, anyone over 40 should be treated with KI only if the predicted exposure is high enough to destroy the thyroid and induce lifelong hypothyroidism (thyroid deficiency). 

“Frequently Asked Questions on Potassium Iodide” by the FDA

“Skin disorders and other problems possibly associated with potassium iodide”
• Excessive quantities of iodized salt, taking too many kelp tablets, or overuse of potassium iodide expectorants such as SSKI can cause some problems, but regular elevated intake of iodine is needed to produce toxicity. Some people have allergic reactions, mainly as skin rashes, to iodine products. Iodine supplementation may also worsen acne in some cases.. 
Staying Healthy With Nutrition by Elson M Haas MD, page 196
• Since potassium iodide can cause a burning sensation in the mouth, either the tablet should be crushed and fully dissolved in a volume of orange juice that the baby can consume quickly, or you should use a saturated solution dissolved in orange juice…Higher doses in both adults and babies can cause a greater number of side effects and offers no further protection. In general, the side effects are mild and include swelling of the salivary glands, a metallic taste in the mouth, sore teeth and gums, gastrointestinal upset and/or skin rashes.

Radiation protection is offered by amino acids cysteine and glutathione; Vitamins A, C, and E; minerals Selenium and Zinc. Russian clinical study reveals some benefit from Ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus (ES))
• Common foods such as apples, buckwheat, and sunflower seeds strongly protect and detoxify us from radiation.
• •Foods such as apples, buckwheat and sunflower seeds cleanse us of radiation. Apples and sunflower seeds contain pectin which binds and removes radioactive residues from the body. Buckwheat contains glucosides which protect us from the effects of radiation. Cereal grasses and other green foods like chlorella and blue-green algae are also useful in cleansing our bodies of radiation.(1) Essential fatty acids like flax seed oil renew cells which have been burned by radiation. Soaking in a bath with sea salt and baking soda draws toxins including radiation from the body.

• Sea vegetables and miso may not be as familiar, but they are such powerful cleansers of radiation that they were used in Japan after nuclear bombs were dropped and in Russia after the Chernobyl nuclear power plant meltdown. Sea vegetables are also known as seaweed. Many varieties can be found in stores including kelp, dulse, nori and wakame. They can also be taken as a supplement which can be useful to people who can not develop a taste for sea vegetables or who feel uncomfortable cooking it. Below is a recipe for miso soup which includes the sea vegetable wakame. Wakame can be found at natural foods stores and in Asian markets.

• Miso Soup with Sea Vegetables

• 2 Tbsp dried wakame pieces(Wakame is a sea vegetable sold in natural food stores or Asian markets. If it is not in little pieces already, you can simply cut with scissors.)
• 6 cups water
• 1/2 chopped onion
• 1 chopped carrot
• 1 cup chopped kale
• 2 Tbsp chopped scallions
• 2 Tbsp miso, any variety. (Mellow white miso is sweeter; darker miso like rice or barley is more salty.)
• sea salt to taste
• Olive oil to coat pot

• To Prepare Soup

• Coat a soup pot with olive oil and saute onions, carrot and kale over medium heat for five minutes
• Add water and dried wakame
• Bring to boil and simmer fifteen minutes.
• Turn off heat and let cool to body temperature.
• Add a few tablespoons of the broth to a small bowl containing the miso. Mix the miso into the broth and then mix back into the soup.
• Top with scallions, and add sea salt to taste and serve.

Artemisia Cancer Cure?

I had recently come across a testimony from a Doctor who treated a boy with cancer with artemisia, among other things, and he stated that it produced a prompt remission. So I looked into Artemisia.

Artemisia cure for cancer?

In an archeological dig in China in the 1970’s, many ancient herbal remedies were uncovered. Among them was one for malaria using Artemisia. As a result, this herb began to be used widely for malaria treatment. Of note, this is Artemisia Annua, also known as Sweet Annie or Qing Hao in Chinese, not Artemisia Absinthe, which is known as Wormwood and is commonly used in anti-parasite cures.

But what’s more, in 1995, bioengineering professors Henry Lai and Nahendra Singh from the University of Washington began studying its potential as an anti-cancer drug and found it killed cancer cells in vitro in a matter of hours, and was even able to cure a dog from bone cancer withing 5 days.
After pumping the cancer cells with maximum amounts of iron using something called holotransferrin, Lai and Singh introduced artemisinin to selectively kill the cancer cells.
http://www.utne.com/2002_si/CouldWormwoodbetheCureforCancer.aspx

If you go to Prof Lai’s page at the U of W, you will see that his research is focused on
biological effects of electromagnetic fields and cancer treatment using Artemisinin and synthetic compounds. He has an entire page dedicated to Artemisinin information.
http://depts.washington.edu/bioe/research/research_artemisinin.html

Of course, it comes with a warning that the FDA has not approved Artemisia for use in the treatment of cancer, that more research is needed and that you should consult with your doctor (who will, in accordance with the FDA, recommend that you be poisoned and irradiated).

But below that, you will find a list of 206 studies going back as far as 1996, showing that artemisinin induces apoptosis, aka cell death, in cancer tumors and basically cures cancer.
http://depts.washington.edu/bioe/people/core/lai.html

You would think that after over 15 years of such promising research in vitro and in animals, someone would have done a human study by now- but no. I guess it would be considered unethical to deprive someone of ‘standard of care’, but you would think that surely they could find someone to volunteer to delay his murderous standard treatment by a couple of weeks to see if Artemisia would work as well for him as it does for the mice. I’m sure this could be done, but who will fund it? The problem is always funding because it all comes down to money. Investment vs return. If you use cheap herbs to actually restore people’s health, you lose out on some big bucks. That’s the bottom line for Big Pharma.

Instead of funding studies with natural herbs, research has taken the direction of studying a synthetic, patentable version of artemisinin as well as nanotechnology that could be used to deliver it. Is this really necessary? The plain of herbs worked for the dog, who I hear was still alive two years after the study, and that’s about 14 dog-years. Pretty good long-term survival, I would say.

We are told that cancer is some mysterious, horrible, incurable condition that can only be addressed with toxic, expensive pharma treatments. I used to work as a transcriptionist in an Oncology dept and I had full confidence in standard treatment. Day after day, I typed out reports of people improving, going into remission, being declared cancer-free. It never occurred to me that I never got to type reports about patients dying because once they died, their files were handled by the morgue. We are told that ‘cancer’ is this incurable mystery, but if you look into it a little more, you will find that cancer is no mystery and it is certainly curable, or at least manageable in other cases. Doctors who use alternative treatments to cure people from cancer are often persecuted, even run out of the country.

The fact is, there is a cure for cancer. Not one cure, actually, but many. ‘Cancer’ is nothing but an umbrella term used to describe about 100 conditions that involve abnormal cell proliferation and tumors, which can have many causes and to which there are many remedies. I would recommend “Knockout” by Suzanne Somers as a primer in alternative cancer treatments. Yes, Chrissie from Three’s Company. No, she’s not playing doctor, she’s interviewing doctors. You can get more info at http://suzannesommers.com

Preventing people’s access to natural cancer treatments is done under the pretense of ethics, but nothing could be more unethical than forcing people to undergo horrendous toxic treatments which have a very low success rate. But the word is getting out and people are saying Enough is Enough! We have been lied to! We demand real medicine! We demand health freedom! We will not allow you to profit off our sickness and death!

Note: Dr Lai’s experiments involved artemisinin and holotransferrin. This should not be interpreted to mean you can cure yourself of cancer at home using Artemisia Annua.

Antidepressants Kill

In some cases, anti-depressants kill. It has been shown that people who are on antidepressants are statistically more likely to kill themselves than people who are not. This is explained away as ‘people who are depressed are more likely to kill themselves in the first place’, although all people in the sample were depressed, and as ‘it gets worse before it gets better’- but if getting worse means jumping off a building, it doesn’t leave much room for improvement afterwards.

And is it a coincidence that virtually all school shootings were committed by teens who were on antidepressants? I only say virtually to leave room for the possibility that some did not involve meds, although personally I have not encountered such a case to date.

Here are some links someone sent me with further evidence that anti-depressants are associated with not only suicide, but psychosis, occasionally leading to murder.

Banning Supplements- Codex in Effect

Obama passes legislation by executive order giving the government the power to ban any supplement or other natural health product if they decide it has not been proven effective by scientific method.

http://www.examiner.com/wellness-in-atlanta/obama-signs-legislation-to-make-supplements-and-alternative-health-remedies-illegal

They are working to bit by bit remove all of our health freedom. If they have it their way, we will all be foreced to turn to Big Pharma sooner or later. However, there remains the fact that food is medicine. There are many foods that can be used to prevent and even treat disease. Chlorella is a chelator, Asian mushroms and seaweed are anti-cancer and can even treat acute radiation sickness, half a carrot reduces you risk of lung cancer by 50%, etc.

So what is the government going to do? Ban carrots and asian food , too? I am sure they will if they can. They are already working on making it illegal for people to have their own gardens. Not illegal per se, but permits will be required, every egg must be pasteurized, you will not be able to give any food to your neighbor, and so on. I guess in their vision of the future, we will all be forced to eat hormone-laden, slaughterhouse waste chicken nuggets and GMO corn for breakfast , lunch and dinenr. I wonder how far this will have to go before mainstream America (and Canada and EU) realize there is no such thing as freedom anymore.
