Doctor Quits Medicine Because the Healthcare System is Broken

In case you haven’t noticed, the healthcare system is broken

This article was written by Dr. Robert Dotson. He talks about why he gave up his medical practice. He also talks about the problems with the American healthcare system.

Additionally, he describes why President Obama’s health care solution is nothing more than theft on a grand scale by insurance and pharmaceutical companies.

This is the inside scoop from someone on the front lines of this issue. This will affect all of us. I recommend you read this article.

The Incredible Healing Effect Of Mother’s Touch

The human body is not just a machine.

And it is more than even a complex biochemical and genetic system. Energetic, emotional and psychological influence are also very strong. These can make a strong difference in how our body functions.

One very important piece is the effect of a mother touching her child. This is powerful for many reasons. One is that it starts immediately after birth. This is when the child is most open and receptive.

The other is what a mother is communicating through her touch.

This is a moving article. You will learn about how a mother’s touch literally returned a child from being pronounced legally dead. It is powerful.

Al Sears
Better Than Aspirin

Dr. Sears knows his stuff.

In this article he addresses the idea of taking aspirin to avoid heart attacks. Short version – he’s against it.

Instead, he recommends something you’ve read about in Balance Point. He says you should lower homocysteine levels.

Homocysteine creates inflammation. And if it is elevated, your chances of a heart attack or stroke go up. It’s a one-to-one relationship. Higher levels equal higher risk.

Learn what he has to say about this important topic.

Agricultural Crops That Have a Risk of Being GMO

Since so far we don’t have laws for labelling GMOs, it is hard to tell what food has them.

There are two ways to deal with this. One is to eat only organic food. It can’t be GMO.

The other is to know what foods commonly are GMO. That’s where this article comes in.

You might be surprised at the high risk crops on this list. I knew most of them, but a couple were new to me.

Read the list and get more information about how to protect yourself from these unknown Franken foods.

You can about them here.

All the best to you for your health and happiness,
