Studies show that acai berries can fight cancer, boost immunity and more

(NaturalNews) Acai berries are the fruits of the acai palm, a species of palm tree native to Central and South America. These berries, which are characterized by their grape-like appearance and bitter taste, have been cherished by the Amazonian natives for centuries due to their incredible medicinal properties. These properties, which are slowly being validated by ongoing studies, are the reason why acai berries - along with other Amazonian foods such as cacao, maca and camu camu - have become synonymous with the "superfood" label.

Americans agree: Sugar, alcohol and tobacco are more dangerous than pot

(NaturalNews) If politicians and law enforcement are so eager to protect Americans from themselves, then they should break in and raid people's homes, taking their boxes of sugar cookies, sugar cereals and sugar jars instead, because, frankly, sugar is way more dangerous and addictive than pot. The American majority now agrees with this simple fact and is beginning to see right through the facade claiming that marijuana is a "dangerous gateway drug."

Poll shows that Americans now agree that sugar, alcohol and tobacco are more dangerous than pot

If you believe pot should be illegal, then soda, tobacco, alcohol and fast food should also be illegal and be classified as dangerous as heroin and LSD

The Body's Natural State Is Health, Not Diseased As We've Been Led to Believe

From the time we are conceived until the time we die, the cells in our bodies are endlessly working to maintain a natural state of homeostasis or equilibrium. When we turn to medicine or medical technology to manipulate our own body systems to heal us, we are really only facilitating our natural ability to heal from within. A diseased body is no coincidence and the natural state of every human being is health, not disease.

The duress of disease can influence our ability not only to deal with the pain but also to express it. In specific states of disease, some people cannot help but wonder if their body is working to maintain its natural state of health.

Our disease care industry doesn't go vary far to help our cause either. From the time we are born, until the time we die, from the very first vaccine to the very last dosage of medication on our deathbeds (and everything in between), we have been conditioned to accept that external factors and disease treatments are what can help control our pain and suffering.

We've also been conditioned to believe that many diseases cannot be reversed, when in fact there are many that can and without drugs.

Preventable illness makes up approximately 80% percent of the burden of illness and 90% of all healthcare costs, however our focus is too often addressing symptoms instead of causes.

Pineal Gland Part 2 – Connection to Spirit and Activation ~ Dr. Terry Willard

pineal gland third eye 300x238 Pineal Gland Part 2 – Connection to Spirit and Activation

As men­tioned in ear­lier Blogs, the pineal gland has many inter­est­ing and curi­ous con­nec­tions to spirit. Often called the ‘Third Eye’ this small endocrine gland, buried deep in the cen­ter of the brain, has become the focus of many mas­ters and shamans of the past. It has been claimed to be the ‘prin­ci­ple seat of the soul’, play­ing a promi­nent role in the mythol­ogy of the Egyp­tians, Tibet Bud­dhists, Roman Catholic Church, philoso­phers, sci­en­tists and even the found­ing fathers of the U.S.A.  Some say it is the Holy Grail. The pineal gland has light recep­tors (sim­i­lar to our eyes) cre­at­ing insight into our ‘mind’s eye.’ It appears to have a con­nec­tion to dreams, hal­lu­ci­na­tions, near death expe­ri­ences, abduc­tions and even visions. But what is its con­nec­tion to spirit or other dimensions?

Breaking News: FDA’s Sneak Attempt to Ban Another B Vitamin

Note that the title of this article isn't entirely true. The FDA wants to no longer allow vitamin supplements to make a distinction on their labels between folate, a healthy and natural B vitamin, and folic acid, a mostly synthetic form and less healthy form.

Breaking News: FDA’s Sneak Attempt to Ban Another B VitaminAlliance for Natural Health, March 11, 2014
 
You can’t live without this vitamin. But the FDA wants to reserve the natural form for monopoly drug companies, leaving only the synthetic form for supplements. 

The FDA has just released a new 109-proposed rule on the revision of nutrition and supplement labels. (You can read more about the implications of the new labeling rules in our other article this week.)
 
On page 69, the agency slipped in two little paragraphs that could risk the health of millions of people who desperately need folate. It’s a sneak attack so quiet and unobtrusive that few people will even realize it’s there.
  
According to the guidance, the word “folate” will be banned from the Supplement Fact labels—only the term “folic acid” will be allowed.

How to Spot an Unhealthy Relationship - Aligned Holistics

The theme for my clients this week has been letting go of toxic relationships. This got me thinking about my relationships, wondering "What makes a relationship healthy?" It can be challenging to spot the signs when you're in the midst of romantic dinners, handmade cards, and mind-blowing sex.

So, I took a look back at the shitty things I've done and had done to me to present you with these 5 Signs:

1. Giving to Give vs. Giving to Get

When we love, we give of ourselves without the expectation of return. We give out of compassion, empathy, and mutual respect. In an unhealthy relationship, giving is used as a tool to get something in return.

THE STOP WORRYING EXERCISE! - Brian Schulz

DEAR FRIENDS- Let me begin with a radical and supremely hopeful point of view: There is NOTHING you need to worry about. Ever! There are simply challenges to face and creative solutions that are within you to discover.

Whether the steps you need to take are external (an improved way of handling a situation) or internal (a new attitude that frees you to let go and feel better) there is no need to fear. You can learn how to stay peaceful and always find your way to inner relief and outer progress.

We all know that worrying never solved a problem, and never makes us feel better. Worrying is a constant drain on our inner peace, physical energy and overall happiness. IT SIMPLY DOESN'T WORK!

10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently

Intuition is challenging to define, despite the huge role it plays in our everyday lives. Steve Jobs called it, for instance, "more powerful than intellect." But however we put it into words, we all, well, intuitively know just what it is.

Pretty much everyone has experienced a gut feeling -- that unconscious reasoning that propels us to do something without telling us why or how. But the nature of intuition has long eluded us, and has inspired centuries' worth of research and inquiry in the fields of philosophy and psychology.

"I define intuition as the subtle knowing without ever having any idea why you know it," Sophy Burnham, bestselling author of The Art of Intuition, tells The Huffington Post. "It's different from thinking, it's different from logic or analysis ... It's a knowing without knowing."

U.S. Feds Finally Approve Research on the Medicinal Properties of the Whole Marijuana Plant

Last week, the Public Health Service announced that they would approve a University of Arizona study on the use of marijuana for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

With this announcement, it seems that the marijuana plant is heading into unknown territory – federally-supported research examining its possible benefits.
But, is this really new territory? Yes and no.
