5 Tips To Ditch Needless Pressures & Let Feeling Good Be Your Guide Months after I wound up in the ER with blood clots in my lungs, I realized I needed to stop putting so much pressure on myself and start enjoying life a little more. Before my cosmic kick-in-the-butt, I'd been climbing the ladder at work, striving to be a perfect wife and friend, and trying to get Michelle Obama arms. I was spending a lot of time doing things I felt I "should" be doing. Can you relate? No wonder we all know what "adrenal fatigue" is! Sure, we need money to live, sleep and eat, but fulfillment comes from creating joy and serving others. I’m still trying to curb myself when I realize I’m grasping a little too hard for things that don’t really matter. 1. Between morning meditations, journaling, oil-pulling, yoga sequences, affirmations, dry brushing, and kale juicing, there’s a lot it seems like we should be doing before 9 a.m. You don’t have to buy into every evolving nutrition theory and change your food philosophy every time there’s a new New York Times best-seller. 2.
Science for stoners: What is marijuana “abuse?” America is reconsidering marijuana. But even as medical applications are recognized and Colorado and Washington roll out regulations for recreational use, the definition of “abuse” is still subject to debate. Until only a few years ago, any marijuana use was drug abuse. Refraining from pot was good. Using it was bad. Then, as medical marijuana gained recognition, users of marijuana ended up split into medical and recreational users, the worthy and the wayward, the legal and the criminal. Even with medical use laws, many people believed that “green cards” — medical marijuana permits — were often being issued to fakers, people using medical-use laws as a cover for their recreational interest in marijuana. But, as marijuana’s legal status changes, should the framework for what constitutes “abuse” change, too? Marijuana does not “fit in” as tidily as sound bites and political messaging require. Let’s say the stoner on the couch has a migraine. This tension is not the same thing as stress.
Facebook Chemotherapy-free cancer treatment uses body's own immune system to attack diseased cells (NaturalNews) A revolutionary breakthrough in cancer treatment that is being described as a "game-changer" would see the body's own immune system utilized to attack diseased cells, rather than rely on sickening chemotherapy, researchers announced lately. Scientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York say they have successfully experimented with the new procedure, using 16 people who had advanced leukemia and had otherwise run out of treatment options. The researchers said the patients underwent targeted T cell therapy, which then eliminated the cancerous cells in most of the patients, CBS News reported. Dr. 'This was no fluke' "They took 16 patients with advanced leukemia, who had failed chemotherapy or not responded at all to chemotherapy, so they classically have weeks to months to live. Study senior author Dr. Following 15 years of study on the procedure, Brentjens said that "it seems to really work in patients with this particular type of cancer." Sources:
10 reasons to take spirulina every day (NaturalNews) We talk a lot about "superfoods" here at NaturalNews because there are literally thousands of nutrient-dense superfood options from which to choose, all of which contain a unique array of disease-fighting vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other healing components. But the one superfood that stands out among the rest -- and the one that you should be taking every single day for your health -- is spirulina, a special type of blue-green algae that is loaded with chlorophyll and a host of other life-giving nutrients. Spirulina is particularly rich in 1) infection-fighting proteins that have been scientifically shown to increase the production of disease-combating antibodies within the body. Since spirulina is composed of nearly 70 percent protein, the highest among all other foods, it is particularly effective at boosting the production of macrophages, a type of white blood cell that fights and prevents infection.

Unraveling food industry lies - Many honey and spice products are counterfeit (NaturalNews) It might be a hard pill for many people to swallow, but a significant segment of the food industry is built on a foundation of lies and deception. Grocery store and supermarket shelves everywhere are literally filled to the brim with products that claim to be one thing, but are really something else, including many unsuspecting food ingredients like cinnamon, honey, and saffron, for instance. Many commercially available herbs and spices are, in fact, imitations or flat-out fakes, despite what they might say on the label. And yet, because the chicanery has been masked so carefully and precisely, even the most savvy among food connoisseurs are getting duped by this phony spice and sweetener racket that is taking advantage of widespread ignorance about how to accurately identify genuine foods. Real honey is unfiltered, which means it still contains pollen, antioxidants, and various other nutrients and materials that identify it as genuine. Sources for this article include:
