Is Your Online Profile Healthy, Immunity 101  

 

There is no doubt that technology has invaded our lives. More and more items have become "smart" and can now network with each other, a concept known as "the internet of things" (IoT for short). While this might seem like a nice convenience for certain small things, like turning the lights on when you enter your home, IoT has snowballed into something much more complex.

Because network technology is now everywhere--including in areas that traditionally were network-free--the cybersecurity threat has skyrocketed. Of particular concern are the threats to the automotive, medical, and voting industries. Nate Cardozo, senior staff attorney for digital rights organization the Electronic Frontier Foundation, stated, "These companies have never really had to worry about security because they’ve never really had anything with networking . . . Those companies that have engineering staff but no security staff don’t know what to do with a vulnerability report. And in my practice when I’m counseling a hacker or a researcher whose doing vulnerability reporting, the big guys, the software companies, those are nearly always seamless. Apple knows what to do with a vulnerability report... But medical device companies? They don’t have a f---ing clue."

While data collection originated with websites and applications, the increase of tech in physical products has brought new kinds of data to the forefront, including users' location and behaviour. While on one hand, the data enables devices to automatically adjust to the users' preferences, on the other hand, the potential for abuse is high--and not just for credit card theft. A Harvard Business Review article cites the example of Target's hacked data mining, which was found to identify potentially pregnant shoppers--"in some cases before they had told anyone."

Although alarming, typical data profiling goes much deeper. The information can be collected from a number of sources, including "online and offline purchase data, supermarket savings cards, white pages, surveys, sweepstakes and contest entries, financial records, property records, U.S. Census records, motor vehicle data, automatic number information, credit card transactions, phone records (Customer Proprietary Network Information or "CPNI"), credit records, product warranty cards, the sale of magazine and catalog subscriptions, and public records." Information from these and other sources is combined to create a dossier on each person. The dossiers may be further enhanced by combining information from other databases with the existing one. When dossiers are completed, similar individuals are classified into groups (by race, income, location, health conditions, etc.). As EPIC Electronic Privacy Information Center) states, "No aspect of an individual's private life is too sensitive to be categorized, compiled, and sold to others."

While one may think this information is for targeted advertising purposes, that is changing, as well. There have been reports of this data already being used for political voting persuasion and shopping discrimination (based on income). In the future, this could extend to job applications and loans. The Guardian has an article that highlights the ways major companies collect your data and how to manage/erase the data they collect. Their conclusion is that the easiest way to avoid data collection is to minimize your exposure.

Ideally, you should also be limiting your exposure to EMF frequencies in general as much as possible. Goop lists some ideas below about ways to mitigate your exposure:
  1. Dedicate at least one room in the house as a “safe haven” from EMF exposure. I would suggest the bedroom where you can keep you and your family safe by unplugging and disabling all electronic and digital equipment for better sleep and regeneration. Remember the EMFs destroy melatonin—the most powerful hormone in the body. Disconnect everything including your wireless router and put your cell phone on airplane mode or better yet, turn it off completely. I even turn off the electrical breaker to my bedroom at night for the deepest rest possible.
  2. During the day, be smart about your cell phone use. Keep it away from your body as much as possible and turn it off you when you don’t need it. Even when you’re not using it, it’s still signaling. Use a landline or a service like Skype (on a hardwired internet connection) for longer conversations. And most importantly, keep cell phones away from young children. They may be a convenient distraction or “babysitter” but the possible long-term DNA effects just aren’t worth it.
  3. Eat to beat EMF free radical damage by including more turmeric, garlic, artichokes, blueberries, sea veggies, and tart cherries in your diet. These foods are especially high in antioxidants and minerals which are EMF protective.
  4. For those with major sleep problems, consider a time-released melatonin supplement that supplies three specific fortifying minerals that can help repair EMF-related damage and neutralize free radicals. (We would, of course, recommend Melapure Melatonin for maximum efficacy.)
  5. If you’re really concerned about electromagnetic exposure, consider engaging the services of a professional EMF remediation expert. The individuals can be found through the Institute for Building Biology & Ecology. When I was writing Zapped, I consulted with an expert and was astonished to learn the long-distance cell phone radiation that was permeating the master bedroom from four close-by cell phone towers. Based upon the Building Biologist’s recommendations, we painted the bedroom with a special RF-proof paint!
Health comes in many ways and so does protection, at Life Choice, we have you covered.

Natural News: Our Fragile Ecosystem: Be Very Aware, It Affects Every One of Us

Our Fragile Ecosystem: Be Very Aware, It Affects Every One of Us  

 

With the current wildfires raging in BC, those residents are on our minds this week. Still, if we are honest, when natural disasters strike someone else, while we feel empathy and offer help, it is easy to feel relief that we are not affected. However, we all share one ecosystem, so the things affecting one area actually affect all areas eventually. If you drop some ink in a pool, it will disperse to every area.

Another example of this is the Fukushima power plant. In March 2011, Japan experienced a 9.0 magnitude earthquake, which shifted the seafloor and Japan itself, and also set off a tsunami. The Fukushima nuclear plant held up against the earthquake, but could not withstand the tsunami. In the months and years after, while workers have tried to contain the damage, their efforts are limited. In February, workers discovered that radiation levels inside a damaged reactor are still extremely high--530 sieverts an hour, in fact. To give perspective, "a single dose of one sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea; 5 sieverts would kill half those exposed to it within a month, and a single dose of 10 sieverts would prove fatal within weeks." Due to complications such as these, it is currently estimated that it will take four decades for the Fukushima nuclear plant to be decommissioned.

The assault on health is not limited to horrific incidences like these. These disasters only add to the bioaccumulation that already happens every day. Bioaccumulation is when pollutants enter the food chain faster than they leave it. A related process, biomagnification, occurs when toxins increase in concentration as they move up the food chain. For humans, this means each exposure to pesticides and related toxins can add up within our bodies, and when we eat meat from animals that have consumed pesticide-sprayed foods, we take in those chemicals, as well. This also affects animals, as seen in the chart below:

There are 2 main things we can do to minimize the damage of the environment on our health: 1-eat organic, non-GMO food. 2-take high quality supplements. To boost immunity and detox abilities, we recommend Thyroid Support Homeopathic, Thymus Gland, and SAMe Liquid.

Natural News: The Duality of Healing

Doctor's Corner

The Duality of Healing  

 

Suppose nature had supplied humanity with a product that could make daily living easier. What if the product could relieve pain, as well as the anxiety and stress associated with the pain? What if it could help those with ADHD, and reduce premenstrual pain? What if it were to be reported that it would help with urinary tract infections, edema, epilepsy, psychosis, headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome, common cold and other respiratory tract infections, tuberculosis, bladder cancer and venereal disease? And bestow favor to smokers by protecting them from developing lung cancer?

However, what if because of its effectiveness, it was vilified by the pharmaceutical community for fear that it could replace many of their top selling drugs and without side effects?

As we all know, every weapon has safety concerns, and a product like this would not be any different. Still, those who have ulterior motives can either maximize or minimize the safety concerns of a product such as this. Additionally, those looking to make a quick buck will always find a way to cash in--even if it may be at the cost of their clientele.

Sometimes, shortcuts are advantageous--it is probably safe to say the majority of people prefer the ease of email over "snail mail," for instance. However, some things do not lend themselves to shortcuts, and, as we have stated before, there is no shortcut to health. Similarly, products that can lead to true, natural health are usually not produced with shortcut methods, either. In fact, when health products are haphazardly produced, consumers can experience compounded problems.



The product we have been alluding to in this article is Kava Kava. Like several other health products, Kava has been subject to regulatory scrutiny, and unfortunately, even for those who know the benefits of the product, the temptation to buy the least expensive option is strong.

Many do not realize that our company was responsible for bringing Kava back to the Canadian market. As such, we feel a weight of responsibility to educate about the product--both its benefits when properly produced and its hazards when improperly produced. We have created a document summarizing our findings for public education.

Natural News: Treatment of Disease Conditions: Comparing Allopathic Prescription Drugs to Professional Natural Medicine

Treatment of Disease Conditions: Comparing Allopathic Prescription Drugs to Professional Natural Medicine  

 

You may have heard the saying, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." It means that the little things we do now can save us from having to take more drastic measures later. Nowhere is this more true than in health.

Often people neglect paying the "ounces of prevention" along the way, and it comes back to bite them, as evidenced by the prevalence of disease in today's society. A healthy lifestyle and natural products can do wonders, especially in prevention. However, it should be noted that not all natural products are equal. For instance, a product that has more filler than active ingredients is probably not worth the money or effort to take it. If you take a high potency, USP pharmaceutical grade supplement, though, your efforts will be rewarded.

Did you know that Switzerland has just ruled complementary medicine as a mandatory health insurance service? The Swiss have the right idea here; they are investing in prevention now to reduce the medical system burden later. On the flip side of this, the World Obesity Federation has proposed reclassifying the preventable condition of obesity as a disease. Some countries have already done this.

Classifying obesity as a disease is the wrong direction to take, as the implications are multifaceted. First, it removes individual responsibility; the lifestyle choices that were made for the added weight gain are set aside, as the core health issues remain unchanged. The individual power for change is passed from the individual to the medical system each and every time a health condition is classified as a disease. It becomes easier when seen as a victim--“What I can do? I have a disease.” The system then assumes the power; the symptoms of obesity are treated, while the core issues remain. Obesity takes a hefty toll on the body and the mind in the following ways: high blood pressure; diabetes; stroke; heart attacks; some cancers; gallbladder disease and gallstones; osteoarthritis; gout; breathing problems, such as sleep apnea (when a person stops breathing for short episodes during sleep); and asthma.

When a health condition becomes a disease, who really benefits: the individual, or the near bankrupt medical system? No, the only ones that benefit are the drug manufacturers as they assume power over the individual and the medical system, and, of course, earn money in treating the multiple health symptoms of the new disease, obesity. This is a very dangerous pathway to take and I hope common sense is used before deciding. Instead of classifying weight gain as a disease, it would be better to change the quality of our food and implement the removal of all sugar, for these two steps alone could make all the difference in the world. The one question: do we really want to change the quality of our food supply? Sadly, I don’t think we do.    

Instead of waiting and paying the "pound of cure," consider trying an "ounce of prevention" instead. Naturopathic Pediatrics recommends these steps:
  • Encourage healthy eating
  • Teach children about "sometimes" foods vs. everyday foods
  • Teach children to pay attention to the signals from their body (re: when they are full)
  • Encourage exercise and time outside
  • Do physical activity together as a family
  • Limit screen time to no more than 2 hours on any day
  • Avoid exposure (as best you can) to endocrine disrupting chemicals
  • Encourage healthy gut bacteria (our Laktokhan can also be beneficial for this step)
Thydracut® is a unique and individualized weight loss formula designed by a naturopathic doctor for endocrine balance. Weight loss via the thyroid and adrenal glands, combined with naturally-derived iodine from organic kelp and fermented L-tyrosine. Thydracut® is formulated to increase metabolism by stimulating the body’s own production of thyroxin, a key thyroid hormone, and desiccated adrenal gland to help counteract the negative effects of adrenal fatigue. This product is produced to provide weight loss without stimulation by balancing your individual hormone levels. Imbalanced hormones are one of the main causes of weight gain, especially for those 40+ who are on calorie restrictive diets with little or no results.
