Elizabeth Renter – In the world of natural health, we often hear of exotic fruits that promise to be the next “big thing”, the next superfood. Camu camu is one of these fruits. But in the case of this fruit, it isn’t all hype. Actually, the camu camu berry-like fruit is awesome.
Camu camu is a fruit from deep in the Amazon. It is native to Peru, where locals use it to flavor ice cream, jellies and juices. There is little evidence of it being eaten historically, and instead, evidence exists that it was not eaten because of its extremely acidic nature. However, in 1957 the Instituto de Nutricion in Peru undertook the first nutritional analysis of the fruit and found that the acidic fruit was packed with vitamin C.
Camu Camu: A Vitamin C-Rich Health Gem
When compared with other fruits, the vitamin C content of camu came is highest. It contains about 2,800 mg of ascorbic acid per 100 grams of pulp. In other words, it contains about 30 to 50 times the vitamin C of an orange. In addition, it contains “10 times the iron, three times the niacin, twice the riboflavin and 50 percent more phosphorus” according to Willow Tohi with Natural News. Continue reading →
Baba Mail – Whiskey is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in the world, thanks to its distinct flavors and the fact that it’s the least likely to give you a hangover. Add to that the fact that whiskey also holds several medicinal properties, and you have an obvious success story.
Please remember that whiskey is alcoholic, so drink it responsibly and as always – in moderation.
The first confirmed accounts of whiskey distillation are from the early 15th century, when the Irish and Scottish distilled it, calling it “Aqua Vitae” (Water of Life / Lively Water), for medicinal properties.
During the American Revolution, it was used as currency and George Washington even owned a distillery in Mount Vernon. In the Prohibition era (1920-1933), whiskey was the only alcohol permitted for consumption with a doctor’s prescription.
Jon Rappoport – I’ll just give you the horrific quotes now and discuss the source afterwards:
“…appropriately prescribed prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death…About 330,000 patients die each year from prescription drugs in the US and Europe.
“They [the drugs] cause an epidemic of about 20 times more [6.6 million per year] hospitalizations, as well as falls, road accidents, and about 80 million [per year] medically minor problems such as pains, discomforts, and dysfunctions that hobble productivity or the ability to care for others.
“Deaths from overmedication, errors, and self-medication would increase these figures.”
In other words, the 330,000 deaths per year, the 6.6 million hospitalizations per year, and the 80 million “medically minor” problems per year…all of this stems from CORRECTLY PRESCRIBED medicines.

Alex (Earthie Mama) Du Toit – Commercial insect repellents are so incredibly toxic with dangerous chemicals such as DEET (diethyltoluamide). As an Earthie Mama I want to make sure that my children only have the most natural ingredients on their skin. While living in Costa Rica, I had to figure out how to protect my family naturally from the overwhelming amounts of bugs.
Today I will share with you how simply you can make your own bug-away spray.
This recipe can be made very simply with your choice of essential oil/s and a ‘carrier’ oil or alcohol. Rub or spray the natural insect repellent onto skin or clothing, using care to avoid the sensitive eye area. You’ll need to re-apply after a few hours or when you feel like the bugs are biting. Unused natural insect repellent may be stored in a dark bottle, away from heat or sunlight. If you wish, you may combine the oil with aloe vera gel to change the consistency to more of a spreadable lotion.
Make Your Own Bug-Away Spray
The essential oils that work well against biting insects (mosquitoes, flies, ticks, fleas) are:Continue reading →
Mike Adams – The free market victories against the sleazy biotech industry are coming at a rapid pace now, and the latest announcement is a real game changer: Chipotle Mexican Grill has outright rejected all GMOs and, as of today, is now serving all non-GMO ingredients in its foods.
“When it comes to our food, genetically modified ingredients don’t make the cut,” says an official announcement on the Chipotle website. “…[T]he food we serve should be made with ingredients raised with care for animals, farmers, and the environment. We’re doubtful that the GMO ingredients that used to be in our food meet these criteria.”
The fighting words from Steve Ells very closely mirror the clean food mantra that Natural News has been advocating for years. He says, quoted in the New York Times:
This is another step toward the visions we have of changing the way people think about and eat fast food… Just because food is served fast doesn’t mean it has to be made with cheap raw ingredients, highly processed with preservatives and fillers and stabilizers and artificial colors and flavors.
Well said, Steve. You get it. Your customers get it. Your shareholders might even get it, too: people want clean food, transparent supply lines, ethical treatment of animals and no GMOs!Continue reading →
