Avoiding and Fighting Staph Infections with Alternative Medicine (over 11,000 deaths per year)

Staph causes 80,000 infections and over 11,000 deaths per year. 

MRSA is resistant Staph that does not respond to commonly used antibiotics. It is rampant in hospitals now. You go in for a surgery and end up with a life threatening staph infection.

This infornation is taken from Web MD below:
"The following Staph and MRSA types are the most common: 
  • MSSA. Methicillin-Sensitive Staph Aureus is a common type of Staph that is vulnerable to the methicillin class of antibiotics and therefore easier to treat. This “common Staph” infection is often seen on bacterial culture test results.
  • VRSA. Short for Vancomycin-Resistant Staph Aureus, this rare type of Staph has become immune to a common “last resort” antibiotic called vancomycin.
  • VISA. Vancomycin-Intermediate Staph Aureus is similar to VRSA, but the bacteria are only partially resistant to the vancomycin.
  • ORSA. Another name for MRSA, Oxacillin-Resistant Staph aureus, as the name suggests, is resistant to Oxacillin, an antibiotic of the same class as methicillin.
  • CA-MRSA. These are strains of MRSA found in community and public places. These strains tend to cause skin infections and are often easier to treat with antibiotics. However, CA-MRSA often strikes young and otherwise healthy people and can be deadly in some cases.
  • HA-MRSA. These are strains of MRSA found in hospitals and other healthcare settings. As you’ll see further below, MRSA first got started in hospitals. Healthcare-associated MRSA often causes internal infections and can be more challenging to treat.
  • LA-MRSA. There are strains of MRSA associated with livestock and feed animals. These strains have also be found on livestock caretakers. Livestock-associated MRSA is a new area of study. MRSA has also been found in our food supply: conventionally raised pork, beef and chicken."

According to the CDC, over 80,000 invasive MRSA infections and 11,285 related deaths occur every year. The above are just for MRSA infection stats, not other infections as well.  
Infections get spread through catheters,  ventilators and stethoscopes. This has decreased significantly because of new medicine and procedures to prevent MRSA infection in the hospitals.

"Staphylococcus aureus is a leading cause of hospital-acquired infections. It is the primary cause of lower respiratory tract infections and surgical site infections (1,2) and the second leading cause of nosocomial bacteremia (3), pneumonia, and cardiovascular infections (1,2).  

So how does one avoid staph and what alternative medicine works or staph?

#1:  Stay out of the doctors office or hospital if possible. Get released as soon as possible! Wash your hands when leaving any hospital or doctor's office. Bring hand sanitizer and use it frequently.  Try to sit away from other patients especially if they are coughing and look sick.  Don't spend more time than you have to at the appointment. 

#2:  Make sure your immune system is in optimal shape at all times. Take Immune Supporting herbs and supplements. Immune support herbs include:  

#3: Make sure you are getting proper rest and eating a healthy diet. These two steps boost immune function. 

Ask the hospital these questions before you get admitted:

  • What is the hospital’s rate of bloodstream infections; it should be at or below one infection per 1,000 catheter days.
  • Is the hospital participating in the national effort to prevent these infections.
  • Does the hospital use the Pronovost checklist when inserting central line catheters.
  • Make sure the doctors and nurses wash their hands each time they enter your room.
  • Have your catheter removed as soon as possible. It is one of the main sources for staph infections.  

If you are in the hospital you may not have any choice for your treatment.  If you are home when you get sick, this is the regimen we have for our family and ourselves.  You will not know for sure without a culture test for sure if it is a staph infection. If it is a  boil, sty, or abscess it is usually staph. Skin infections can be bacterial or staph usually.  

Doctors will misdiagnose skin infections more often than not. They label everything allergic dermatitis.  My husband and I have both been through it this year with really nasty, resistant skin infections due to gouges in the skin that got infected,. There are flesh eating skin infections so be careful.  If the infections does not respond to home treatment and gets worse rapidly, head to the emergency room. 

This is How our family treats staph infections.

#1:  We flush the gouge or cut in the skin immediately with lots of water, then tea tree wash, and last with tea tree oil.  Every night after working outside we wash our arms and hands with tea tree wash.  

#2: If it is a nasty wound, we pack it with goldenseal or Neem powder and wrap it up.  We have found that tea tree oil is not enough to completely stop MRSA skin infections. It shows it down, but does not seem to stamp it out completely. Topping it over with goldenseal seems to work well most of the time. You must do this daily until the cut is not longer swollen, red, or spreading. Cover the wounds with non stick gauze pads. Do not touch it or scratch it. Wash your hands after redressing the wound.  You can also try goldenseal or Neem in a salve, comfrey salve, or propolis salve. We have found straight goldenseal or Neem powder to be the most effective on staph. Depending on how tough the bacteria or staph is, you may have to try several remedies before you find the right one. Make sure you watch it to make sure your treatment is working and it is not getting worse or spreading.

#3:  We take goldenseal, Neem or oregano capsules orally along with the the skin treatment or systemic infection. If it is a sore throat, it could well be strep instead. Gargling with kyolic garlic or tea tree oil ( a few drops in water) works well with throat infections.  Zinc, Vitamin A, and other vitamins are increased.

Make sure the supplement is quality, if not you will not see results and you could end up with an emergency bill. It is critical on both supplements. There are a lot of junk supplements out there. They will not work because the medicinal properties have been processed out. 

We increase the dose of Vitamin C to three thousand milligrams a day taken as one thousand milligrams three times a day.   

We also take an immune support formula. 

When to see a doctor or emergency room?

If the cut area gets worse with this treatment, we would go visit the dr for a skin culture to see what we are up against.  


If a red line spreads quickly up toward the heart, that is blood poisoning and do go to the emergency room. In some cases the infection spreads so rapidly, that it needs IV injections to stop it. You can't do that at home. An example is a cat scratch or dog bite wound.  In hours you can have blood poisoning. My husband got wounded by our cat. The next morning it had turned into a nasty red line. He went for IV injections for two weeks, it was that entrenched overnight. He almost was hospitalized.

Vitamin C Cures Pneumonia

This is a followup press release from the Orthomolecular Foundation so I wanted to get this out.  I have known about the virtues of Vitamin C for 37 years. I have used high amounts of Vitamin C for years when it was needed. 

The problem of Vitamin C IVs,  is that if your doctor uses Vitamin C in an IV, it can result in his license being taken away by the AMA(American Medical Association).

The medical establishment would rather see you die or lose a limb than allow a Vitamin C drip to be used. This is even when all their drugs have failed to crush the staph or infection in the patient and they tell the family they can do nothing more and their loved one will die.  That is the reality of medicine in this country. The drug companies will do whatever is needed to silence alternative therapies and treatments.

Find out more about Orthomolecular medicine in the links below included in their press release.  I studied it for several years to help my daughter and it worked.

Vitamin C Cures Pneumonia
A powerful second opinion for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and everyone

by Andrew W. Saul, Editor

(OMNS, Sept 12, 2016) Clinical evidence confirms vitamin C's powerful antiviral/antibiotic effect against pneumonia when used in sufficient quantity.
Robert F. Cathcart, MD, successfully treated pneumonia with up to 200,000 milligrams of vitamin C daily. (1,2) One can, to a significant extent, simulate an IV of vitamin C by taking it by mouth very, very often. When I had pneumonia, it took 2,000 mg of vitamin C every six minutes to get me to saturation (bowel tolerance). In three hours, fever was reduced several degrees and coughing virtually stopped. At an oral daily dose of just over 100,000 mg, complete recovery took just a few days.
Treating pneumonia, with massive amounts of vitamin C is not a new idea at all. Board-certified chest specialist Frederick R. Klenner, M.D. routinely used this approach for decades, beginning back in the 1940's. (3) If your doctor believes that vitamin C has merit generally, but that massive doses are ineffective or somehow harmful, he or she will do well to read the doctor's original papers. (4)
"Some physicians would stand by and see their patients die rather than use ascorbic acid. Vitamin C should be given to the patient while the doctors ponder the diagnosis."

(Frederick R. Klenner, M.D.)
Vitamin C can be used alone or right along with medicines if one so chooses. Prescription drugs are not doing the job. Over 50,000 Americans die from pneumonia each year. There is no question that aggressive use of vitamin C would lower that figure a great deal. And there is no humane excuse for excluding it.
Please feel free to share this article with any member of any political party. Politicians need vitamin C, too.

Tea Tree OIl to the Rescue for Sore Throats, Gum Pain, Bites, Stings and More

How our family uses  Tea Tree Oil Extract

Throat Gargle, gum gargle, and tooth ache gargle

Put 5 drops of tea tree oil and a pinch of salt  in a half glass of  warm water and stir. 
Gargle several times, holding it in your mouth for several minutes so it has time to penetrate the infected areas.
Do not swallow the liquid.

Add to a store bought mouth gargle to make it more potent!

You can add the tea tree oil to any mouthwash to make it more antiseptic and healing. This also helps for sore teeth, gums and abscesses. It is very effective and speeds your recovery and healing. 

Chest Colds

For chest colds, put 5 to 10 drops in 4 to 6 cups of warm water or in a vaporizer and inhale it into your lungs.

Bites, Stings, Welts, and other sores

Put tea tree oil on bites or stings. It takes the itching and pain away quickly.

Splinters or the sore hole they leave

I drove a splinter under my nail three days ago. I could not get it out. So I just kept putting tea tree oil on it and within a day all the redness and pain was gone It would have been gone sooner, had I not dug under the nail with a needle. That did not help at all. It is amazing how hurtful a tiny splinter can be. I now know why they used that for torture in ancient times. I work with wood and animals on our little homestead. I use tea tree oil on a daily basis for most everything. It is always in my purse, our car, and readily available.

Painful Hangnail

Most of us at one time or another pulled off a hangnail instead of cutting it off properly. Once you do that, the area is sore and painful. Apply tea tree oil to the area and see how quickly the pain is relieved.

Emergency Relief:

One day we were visiting my daughter in Fresno. There was a guy moving out some construction materials with a hoist. He disturbed some bees that had taken up in that stack of old wood. He had several stings. He was hurting. I took out the tea tree oil right there and gave him the bottle. We saw him the next day and giving him that oil immediately really cut down on his pain and swelling. He insisted on paying me for the bottle. He was indeed thankful. So this is one oil that should be included in your emergency kit always.

Staph Infections or Bacterial Infections:
My husband gets a recurrent staph infection in his arm almost everything he takes a chunk out it working in the yard. Since twice he had it turn in to a serious infection requiring IVs, we immediately treat it.  You first wash out the wound with hydrogen Perioxide to get out all the dirt. If you can encourage it to bleed, that is good.  We then apply tea tree oil, then powdered goldenseal to the wound and cover it with a bandage. That is changed three times a day with new herbs applied. That regimen is kept up until the wound is healed showing no signs of redness, swelling, or itching. Small wounds can quickly turn into infections if given half a chance.  We increase the Vit C as well. 

We have not found tea tree oil enough with my husband to completely stop his staph infections without the use of goldenseal as well.  The tea tree oil knocks the infection down but does not defeat it entirely.  Again, use tea tree oil and goldenseal powder.

I have many more personal stories on using tea tree oil, so write me any questions. I have used both products listed on this blog at one time or another.
See you next blog.  Kate, the Herbladyisin

Vitamin C Prevents Side Effects from the MMR Vaccine

by Helen Saul Case

(OMNS, September 10, 2016) This is not an article about whether vaccinations are "good" or "bad." This is an article about how high-dose vitamin C can protect children from vaccination side effects. Until we have real choice as to whether or not we vaccinate our children, we must seek ways to make immunizations safer. High-dose vitamin C makes immunizations safer:

Giving the MMR Shot to a Child with Known Vaccination Sensitivity

Our daughter recently received the MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccination. In fact, she received two. New York State recently changed the law requiring an additional MMR shot in order for children to attend kindergarten. We had to make sure that she received both injections this summer before school started. We were concerned about giving her two MMR shots (and so close together) because after a previous vaccination she had a serious reaction.
Years ago, before we learned to give huge doses of vitamin C before, during, and after immunizations, our daughter (then age 15 months) had a severe reaction to the DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus) vaccination: she lost her coordination, was screaming, falling over, and spiked a high fever. High-dose, saturation-level vitamin C cured her reaction to the DPT vaccine and taught us an important lesson: give more vitamin C. Much, much more. Now, in order to protect our children from any vaccination side effects, we give very high doses of vitamin C before, during (yes, even at the doctor's office) and after immunizations. To read more see: and
No, the MMR shot is not the same as a DPT shot. Just because our child reacted to one vaccine, doesn't necessarily mean she will react to another. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "Any vaccine can cause side effects" and "like any medicine, is capable of causing serious problems." See: When you consider just how much vitamin C our daughter held after the MMR vaccinations, we have to ask ourselves one question: where was it all going?

How Much C? A Lot. A Whole Lot.

Our five-year-old, 37-pound (about 17 kg) daughter received saturation-level doses of 8,000 to 11,000 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C every day the week before her first MMR vaccination. The day of her shot, she happily and comfortably held 24,000 mg. For the next couple of days after the shot, her dose was reduced to 20,000 mg/day. Then, for the next four days, her vitamin C dose went down to 15,000 mg/day. The next four: 14,000 mg, 13,000 mg, 12,000 mg and 11,000 mg per day respectively.
For the next several weeks leading all the way up to her second MMR shot, she was getting between 8,000 and 11,000 mg of vitamin C each day.
On the day of her second MMR shot, just a little over a month from the first one, she once again received and comfortably held 24,000 mg of vitamin C. The day after: 19,000 mg. Once again, using bowel tolerance as an indicator, we gradually decreased this dose over the two weeks following this second immunization to an average of 9,000 mg/day. Eventually, we went back to her regular dose of 5,000 mg/day or 1,000 mg/day per year of age, following the recommendation of Frederick Robert Klenner, MD: or
According to the CDC Vaccine Information Statement we received from our daughter's pediatrician, the MMR vaccine can cause "mild problems" including fever, rash, and glandular swelling; "moderate problems" including fever-induced seizure and painful joints; and "severe problems" such as serious allergic reactions, deafness, coma, and permanent brain damage. See:
Our daughter did not experience a single one of these side effects from the MMR shots. She had no vaccination reaction whatsoever. She had no fever, no swelling, no nothing. She was (and is) happy and healthy. How would things have gone if she had not been given high-dose vitamin C? We don't know. And we aren't about to take chances with potential side effects like coma or permanent brain damage.

Using Bowel Tolerance as an Indicator of "Enough" Vitamin C

Everyone wants to know, "How much vitamin C?" There is no set amount. This is why bowel tolerance is the ideal indicator. When warranted by such events as illness, potential illness, or immunizations, we give our children enough vitamin C to get just to the point of saturation, or loose stool. This is often indicated by a rumbling tummy or some gas. If stools become loose, we decrease how much vitamin C we give. If our children are happy and tooting away, that is just about right. After each MMR shot, our daughter's body accepted up to 24,000 mg/day of vitamin C. On any other regular day, she would reach bowel tolerance at much lower doses.
To reiterate, we give vitamin C to bowel tolerance when our kids show signs of sickness (runny nose, coughing, sneezing), and before, during, and after immunizations. We get them to bowel tolerance of vitamin C before there is a full-blown illness, and to prevent side effects from vaccinations.
"The titration (bowel tolerance) method or large intravenous doses are absolutely necessary to obtain excellent results. The method produces spectacular effects in all patients capable of tolerating these doses. A placebo could not possibly work so reliably, even in infants and children, and have such a profound effect on critically ill patients." - Robert F. Cathcart III, MD
This is how we apply Dr. Robert F. Cathcart's bowel tolerance method: for our five year old daughter, we give vitamin C throughout the day in divided doses, beginning the day with a larger "loading dose" (about 3,000 mg) and then give frequent, smaller doses (about 2,000 mg every two hours) right up to about an hour before bedtime. When she was younger, we gave less, and she "held" less. Bowel tolerance is an excellent indicator of "enough" vitamin C no matter how old your child is.

When in Doubt, Give Vitamin C

Our daughter may be a special case. Maybe your child won't need nearly this much vitamin C. However, knowing the incredible safety and effectiveness of high-dose vitamin C, we are very comfortable giving our daughter what I would like to call "take no chances" sized doses at immunization time.
No, we don't take chances. We take vitamins. And we take a lot of them.

Alternative Cancer and AIDS Treatments : Esseac Tea and 714X

I feel that cancer patients should have the right to decide on standard medicine or alternative medicine. It is very difficult to find the information on alternative therapies. Your doctor will not give you this information. In fact they will tell you there is no value in these alternative treatments. It is up to you to find the real truth.

So in my  blogs I will give you resources to do your own research so you then have knowledge to make that informed decision. No therapy standard or alternative can guarantee your life. You may still die using the therapies of either modalities.   You should have the right to freely choose your path in cancer treatment, not your doctor or the government.  

Please promote this blog to your friends who might be interested. Help me spread the word on this information!

The treatments I am presenting in this blog are for your education and research. I don't directly have experience with them other than Esseac for which I take but not for cancer. I have used it for over 15 years. I began taking it after a fall which caused kidney damage and compromised function. I use it to support my kidney function and health.  I take it every day and will continue to do so.

Legal Disclaimer below  I have to state on these blogs so I don't get hung by the Medical Authorities. The information presented in these articles is not approved by the AMA, FDA, or probably your doctor. This information is for education only. Please consult a holistic clinic or doctor if you  have cancer. You still have the right to review this information and research it for yourselves. That is my goal in these blogs, you give you access to other treatment information you may want to consider.

The Billy Best Story: Beating Cancer with Alternative Medicine. 

In 1995 Billy Best was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. After several chemotherapy treatments, he ran away from home.  A nation wide search was headline news at the time. He used Esseac Tea and 714X to treat his cancer.  He survived and has written a book titled, The Billy Best Story: Beating Cancer with Alternative Medicine.  It is an amazing book of courage. 

Children are not given a choice in this country. They are forced into chemo and radiation, taken away from their family if they object to the program. It is called Medical Kidnapping and is now escalating by the medical powers that rule this country.  

The two therapies he used along with diet were: 

Esseac Tea: 

It is a combination tea that Rene Cassie in Canada utilized with great success for Cancer. I sell the books on Esseac and her story of persecution by the Canadian government. There were many people who worked hard to legalize Esseac tea. She had thousands of successful cases. Her files were destroyed by the government. There are many patients who were healed by her treatment. The book should be read by everyone even if you don't have cancer. You may one day. 

Read my blog here on Esseac Tea

Read the book on Esseac and Rene Cassie here 

I do sell Esseac Tea in my store.  

The Naessens 714X Treatment

Gaston Naessens, his new microscope invention and  714X are extremely important in the fight against cancer.

714X is a non toxic health product, an immunomodulator, available for over 30 years now. It is particularly recommended for health conditions involving a weakened or totally exhausted immune system. This product acts directly upon the body’s natural defences and not on the affected cells. For this reason, 714X can be of assistance in many health problems.

Throughout the years, 714X has been successfully used in many cases of degenerative diseases (such as cancer or multiple sclerosis) and autoimmune diseases such as lyme, lupus erythematosus HIV. 

714X may also be used in a complementary fashion with conventional as well as non conventional treatments. Not only can 714X greatly improve quality of life, by increasing energy.  Better appetite and less pain can also be expected. 714X may also be used in a preventative health program

Unfortunately, the clinic cannot predict if 714X will extend the life of patients because the product doesn’t work on a specific disease, but rather on the immune system.

The history of 714X  

This treatment is today available in Canada. The information is shown at the end of this blog.  Here are some excerpts from a article written about this man and his treatment.  It is a horrible story of how any cancer treatment other than standard medicine is suppressed and destroyed if possible. This story ends in defeat of the medical systems that run this country and Canada.

Gaston Naessens was dragged though the court system and eventually Gaston Naessens was brought to trial in Quebec. He was acquitted and completely exonerated. His successfully treated cancer patients and some important people went to court to support his treatment method and success. His story is amazing on how he developed his treatment and the hell he went through so it could be made available to patients today. 

Excerpts below are from the article located on the link included in this blog. Please read the whole article on this man, his brilliance, his persecution, and triumph. 

You will find the detailed article on his microscope, what is seen in your blood, how he developed his treatment, and how it works.  It is one of the most valuable articles you could read on this treatment. I hope these excerpts will drive you to read the whole article. It could save your life someday or that of someone you love.

He invented a new microscope which shows elements of the blood not seen in a normal microscope. They are called Somatids. These elements show the state of your health and the vitality of your blood, its life force. His treatment was then developed.

"1992 -- A growing interest in Naessens' approach to cancer, AIDS and other such diseases continues to grow. As of October of this year, 210 MD's across the country (Canada) were administering it to patients. Naessens was also invited to the controversial conference on alternative treatments for AIDS held in Amsterdam in May. This conference was attended by such notables as Luc Montagier, the French scientist who is credited with the discovery of the so called "AIDS virus." In Europe, the Philippines, New Zealand, Australia and the U.S., physicians are using 714-X with the conclusion that barring total destruction of the immune system, this may be the most promising treatment for AIDS and cancer ever seen. In the U.S. an independent study on 714-X using human patients has been under way since last May.

"This new microscope is being used as part of a program for cancer patients available to Canadians. After deciding that 714-X is a treatment that the patient would like to pursue, then it is necessary to convince the medical doctor this is the treatment of choice.

"Among the growing number of physicians who are recognizing the efficacy of 714X is Dr. Dietmar Schildwaechter, a former faculty member of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine who now directs a cancer rehabilitation center in his native Germany. He came across Naessens' treatment in 1990 through one of his own patients, who showed marked improvement when, unbeknownst to him, she began taking it. When he found out what she was taking, he began looking into the unconventional treatment himself. He "realized that Naessens had discovered and identified what others had only partially seen."

Schildwaechter is now the chief investigator of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) that is documenting the successes of 714X with the goal of obtaining FDA approval for its use in the United States as an experimental treatment.

How to Get Access to 714X in Canada

Having established that, then the physician is to notify the Emergency Drug Program in Ottawa at (613) 993-3105. A history of the patient is required, and the serum and instructions on administering it will be sent directly from the Naessens clinic to the doctor. 

Details on how to obtain the Somatoscope, or requests for information on the 714X therapy, can be addressed to: The Naessens Clinic C.O.S.E. 

5270 Fontaine Rock Forest, 
Quebec J1N 3B6 or telephone 

(819) 564-7883 or FAX (819) 564-2195. 
Or, send $15 to HANS [to help cover costs] and we will send you an information package on this topic."

Note : I called the 819-564-7883 (Canada) to verify it was still open.

If you call them, they will send you information on their 

program for your review.

Compelling Reasons Why You Should Use Alternative Therapies Over Standard Medicine

I am 64 years old. I became a Master Herbalist when my youngest was a toddler to find the answers to her health problems that the doctors I worked with, could not.  My life at that time was entrenched in the standard medical system. I worked for a clinic whose outreach was Indian reservations, before the money that casinos brought in. I was trained as a medical assistant performing x-rays, blood tests, and many of the things today that are outsourced to labs. One of my jobs at the clinic was to keep track of the drugs used and to meet with drug manufacturing reps. I got taken out to lunch often, hoping I would use my influence with the doctors to buy their products. I did that for 5 years until I stopped work to have my second child. The doctor I worked with delivered my son at home.  So I know how the standard medical system works. I worked with the drug salesmen so I have experience in knowing how that works as well. It isn't good. At the time, it did not phase me for I was entrenched in the medical system.  Very few herbalists out there, worked in the standard medical system as I have. It gives me experience that in the basis for some of my blogs.

So why does one turn from being entrenched in the system to being a rebel against it? The doctors had no answers to my young daughter's declining health and their drugs which did not work. 

So today's blog is the compelling reasons  why you should use herbal medicine and see holistic doctors instead. In doing so I need to present the case against standard medicine.  Standard medicine does well in putting your hand back on after a car wreck. It does well in critical care situations where a few minutes time is the difference between life and death. It has excelled in creating answers for people who have lost limbs. It has advanced in saving people's life where surgery is the only option.

There are areas of medicine where I support standard medicine and its success. But............

In the US standard medicine does a poor job in preventing disease or stopping metabolic problems in the early stages, before they turn into a disease which shows up in lab tests. They don't have much to offer you when you have a cold or flu. They now know that antibiotics are not working and instead causing super bugs and antibiotic resistant diseases such as TB, Staph, and gonorrhea. Vets commit suicide every hour because standard medicine does not have answers for their PTSD except drugs. So in many areas, their treatments are not working. Certainly not in preventive medicine.  Here are some stats below:

440,000 people die each year from medical mistakes! 

Medical mistakes are the 3rd leading cause of death in the US  

#1:    "Washington, D.C., October 23, 2013 – New research estimates up to 440,000 Americans are dying annually from preventable hospital errors. This puts medical errors as the third leading cause of death in the United States, underscoring the need for patients to protect themselves and their families from harm, and for hospitals to make patient safety a priority."

"Released today, the Fall 2013 update to The Leapfrog Group (Leapfrog) Hospital Safety Score assigns A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,500 U.S. general hospitals. It shows many hospitals are making headway in addressing errors, accidents, injuries and infections that kill or hurt patients, but overall progress is slow. The Hospital Safety Score is calculated under the guidance of the Leapfrog Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, with a fully transparent methodology analyzed in the peer-reviewed Journal of Patient Safety."

Here is another link on the subject above,

12 million Americans are Misdiagnosed each year!
Visit the article below to read it yourself!
  1. 17, 2014 ... Each year in the U.S., approximately 12 million adults who seek outpatient medical care are misdiagnosed, according to a new study published ...
  1. Nearly 1 million children potentially misdiagnosed with ADHD  
    1. Article and stats  by the National Center for Education Statistics.

  1. 2015 Cancer Death Rates from the American Cancer Society  (despite chemotherapy, radiation, drugs, and surgery)

  2. 312,000 women die from cancer per year despite standard medicine treatment of chemo, radiation, and drugs

  3. 277,000 men die each year

  4. 86,000 men die of lung cancer

  5. 71,000 women die of lung cancer

  6. 40,000 women die of breast cancer

So these published stats prove how dangerous it is to go to the hospital and get standard medical care. It is not effective in many cases and there are 400,000 mistakes and 12 million misdiagnosis.  

That is why in the last 30 years I have stayed away from doctors except for a few occasions, mostly when I needed tests or a general exam.  I have been in the hospital once in my life, other than having my two other children. I have treated myself for 3 blood clots in my legs over the years with herbal medicine. I use herbal medicine for my kidneys that are compromised from one car accident and a fall that could have killed me.  I deal with phlebitis on a daily basis which it genetic from my mom.  I have used herbal medicine on some real tough health problems. So I walk the talk.  I do use standard medicine to get tests when I need to know what I am up against as recently. I have taken antibiotics three times in the last 15 years. One was for an abscess in my jaw which caused my face to swell up like a balloon. I was working a job and in horrible pain. Once was recently for a skin infection that for two weeks seems unrelenting and unstoppable. 

Despite the facts above is herbal medicine a better choice?

"According to the U.S. National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (part of the National Institutes of Health), about 38 percent of Americans currently avail themselves of some form of complementary/alternative medicine, which can also include dietary supplements, meditation, chiropractic services, Pilates, and Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine."
This number has increased since this report.

"Doctors and nurses were found to be more than twice as likely as non-clinical health-care support workers to have tried out a practitioner-based complementary or alternative medicine service (such as a chiropractor) in the past year."

So many doctors will not prescribe herbs or alternative

therapies  to their patients but are secretly using it for 


Here are 10 healthy reasons to use alternative therapies:

  • Alternative medicine focuses on prevention and early correction of metabolic imbalances before they become a disease state.   Holistic doctors look for signs in the skin, the tongue, your nails, subtle signs that point to occurring imbalances.  They spend more time with their patients and they listen to what the patient is telling them. They do not treat just on a lab test result.

  • Herbal and alternative therapies seek to get to the base cause of a problem such as acid/alkaline imbalance. Chiropractic restores circulation and healing through correcting spinal misalignment.  This benefits nerves, bones, and organs.  Holistic doctors want to find the base cause such as diet problems that result in metabolic problems later. They read between the lines.

  • Herbal and alternative therapies strengthen and support the body and its systems, so those systems can effectively work better. If your pancreas is healthy, you won't need medicine. If you correct blood sugar problems in the beginning you won't have to take insulin later. Herbs that support the pancreas build this gland up, strengthen, and support its function.

  • Some Herbs focus on cleaning out different body systems of the body so that they function more effectively. A bowel works much more effectively when it is not clogged up. The blood system is healthy when not clogged up with plaque or other clogging material. The blood system works better when not contaminated with heavy metals and other contamination such as pollution. 

  • Herbal medicine is safer and has few side effects than drugs whose side effects include heart attacks and death.  Herbs contain nutritional components, as well as medicinal factors that act together to improve health.  

  • Herbal medicine and alternative therapies do work and are effective. They often need the guidance of a holistic doctor to be used properly and effectively.

  • Herbal Medicine and Alternative Therapies are used by doctors in many countries, not just third world countries.  Why is it suppressed here? Money and power!
           The view of doctors in the US is NOT the view of doctors in other countries.
  • "Empirical and scientific evidence exists to support the benefits of acupuncture, manual therapies and several medicinal plants for chronic or mild conditions. For instance, the effectiveness of acupuncture, a popular treatment for relieving pain, has been demonstrated both through numerous clinical trials and laboratory experiments. As a result, 90% of pain clinics in the United Kingdom and 70% in Germany include acupuncture as a form of treatment. Equally, some medicinal plants have shown efficacy for life-threatening conditions; medicine combinations containing the Chinese herb Artemisia annua are now considered amongst the most effective remedies against malaria."

  • "For instance, Ginkgo biloba is a popularly used herbal medicine worldwide whose main function is to prevent vascular disease and to increase blood circulation. "

There are more countries that use herbal medicine than countries that do not.  They are not just third world countries that do not have money to buy standard medicine. Germany is an example below.  I have brought in quotes that are very important to this discussion.  It is thought by most Americans that herbal use only is used in countries like Africa that are poor. That is not true and a lie presented by articles here. Read the article listed below in full so that you realize how you are being brainwashed by the medical system here. Many of the articles that tell you herbs don't work are out and out lies. They will tell you there is not research to back up the use of herbal medicine and alternative therapies and it is a lie.  You are being lied to with full intent to mislead you. 

  • "Germany
    The German people are so supportive of natural medicine that the German government mandated that all medical school curricula include information about natural medicines. Approximately 10 percent of German doctors specialize in homeopathy, with approximately 10 percent more prescribing homeopathic remedies on occasion. In 1993, there were 1,993 medical doctors who had formally qualified in homeopathy, while in 2006, this number jumped over 100 percent to 6,073 (20). In Germany there are 9,000 natural health practitioners called heilpraktikers in 1993 and over 20,000 in 2007. Approximately 20-30 of heilpraktikers specialize in homeopathy."

  • "In most developed countries—also in Germany—patients have access to HM via physicians, nonmedical CAM practitioners and on a self-initiated basis. Consequently, diverse healthcare professionals mainly doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and nonmedical CAM practitioners are involved in HM. In Germany, HM is known as one of the five main elements of classic naturopathy (phytotherapy, hydrotherapy, exercise therapy, dietetic therapy, and “life style regulation” therapy) also known as Kneipp therapies. The overall percentage of Germans using HM increased from 52% in 1970 to 70% in 2010 [2]."
HM refers to herbal medicine in these quotes above and below
  • "German doctors can obtain a postgraduate qualification for “naturopathy,” which includes HM. At the end of the year 2011, 15.949 German doctors had the qualification “naturopathy,” with 70% thereof working in the outpatient sector [4]. However, recent data suggests that far more doctors prescribe or recommend HM to their patients. In a cross-sectional study, more than half of the responding general practitioners (GPs) recommended HM in their day-to-day practice, most of them having no additional qualification for “naturopathy” [5]."  same article as above

  •  France is another progressive country who uses alternative therapies

"Homeopathy is particularly popular in France, where it is the leading alternative therapy. In 1982, 16 percent of the population used homeopathic medicine, rising to 29 percent in 1987, and to 36 percent in 1992 (8). In 2004, 62 percent of French mothers used homeopathic medicines in the previous 12 months (9). A survey of French pharmacists was conducted in 2004 and found that an astounding 94.5 percent reported advising pregnant women to use homeopathic medicines (10).
Homeopathy is popular not only among the French public but also among the French medical community. As many as 70 percent of physicians are receptive to homeopathy and consider it effective, at least 25,000 physicians prescribe homeopathic medicines for their patients. Homeopathy is taught in at least seven medical schools: Besancon, Bordeaux, Lille, Limoges, Marseille, Paris-Nord, and Poitiers, and there are numerous postgraduate training programs. Courses in homeopathy are taught in 21 of France's 24 schools of pharmacy, and also taught in two dental schools, two veterinary medical schools, and three schools of midwivery. "
Please read the full article at the link above.  You need to really see the truth for yourself.
  • There are thousands of double blind research studies from many different countries that prove herbs and alternative therapies do work. Germany, Japan, and Russia are just three of them with published double blind research papers.These research papers are not accepted by the FDA or the AMA in this country. They are ignored or discredited. This is wrong and their suppressing this information is costing patients their lives. 

What about the articles and headlines stating alternative medicine is dangerous and ineffective?

Statistics from the U.S. National Poison Data System prove otherwise. According to a 174-page report just published, the number of people killed in 2009 across America by vitamins, minerals, amino acids or herbal supplements is exactly zero.

Side Effects Possible from herbal medicine

Most of the adverse reactions are due to weight loss supplements and muscle building supplements that are adulterated with drugs or contain caffeine. Other adverse reactions are due to people taking too much of an herbal formula, combining it with prescription medicine, or using it without proper knowledge or guidance.  Too much of cleansing herb will cause loose bowels or irritation in the stomach. Try eating too many prunes and the same thing will happen.  Adding fiber to your diet, when you don't normally eat those foods, will cause stomach distress.  Allergies are possible to any food you eat. You may also be allergic or sensitive to the weeds, dirt, or added fillers found in some junk supplements. Junk supplements are manufactured  by companies who cut corners and offer low quality products.

Deaths Blamed on Alternative Medicine is misleading and false.

Most of the deaths attributed to alternative therapies, are because the patient did not using standard medical therapies. Steve Jobs is an example. Jobs died of pancreatic cancer, a cancer with very few survivors. So using standard medicine he would probably have died too.

Jobs did not die from alternative medicine but from a cancer that did not respond to treatment period.

Pancreatic Cancer is a killer most of the time.  Any death when people are using alternative therapies is stated to be the result of alternative medicine, as if there are no deaths by standard medicine.  Look at the stats above to see that is a lie.

When people die from cancer after chemo and other drugs, they just state they died from the cancer not the standard medicine treatment. The US is blatantly biased toward any treatment other than standard medicine. Parents are put in jail here for using alternative medicine. They are held responsible for their child's death if they did not use standard medicine.  It is fine if they die after using standard medicine, even in cancer where it is known that chemo and radiation are not effective. This is not so in other countries, where is it used by doctors and hospitals such as Germany.

The cancer or bacteria is the cause of the death whether standard or alternative medicine failed to defeat it. 

Here are the stats for pancreatic cancer with standard medicine:

"Pancreatic cancer is one of the faster spreading cancers; only about 4% of patients can expect to survive five years after their diagnosis. Each year, about 44,000 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S., and 37,000 people die of the disease."

"Standard treatments for pancreatic cancer include the common tumor-fighting strategies — surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and, most recently, targeted anticancer drugs that may slightly extend patients’ lives. In 2005, the Food and Drug Administration approved erlotinib, a drug that specifically targets growth factors found on cancer cells, for the treatment of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer who are receiving chemotherapy. The drug has been shown in trials to improve overall survival by 23% after a year when added to routine chemotherapy. The tumors in patients being treated with erlotinib and chemo also develop more slowly than those in patients receiving chemotherapy alone."

This does not tell the whole story. Often cancer patients did later from a different cancer, because their immune system is devastated by the chemo and radiation therapy.  Some therapies are known to be a causative factor in new cancers forming several years later.

So the outcome for pancreatic cancer is not good.  He chose to try alternative therapies which in his case did not work.  He was a liver transplant case as well so his chances were slim on living long period. Liver transplants give the typical patient two years more to live.  Neither standard medicine nor alternative medicine always works on cancer.   You still die.   There is a choice on how you live your last days. Chemo and radiation has horrible side effects. You throw up for days or weeks with the treatments. There is bone pain and memory loss that does not go away. Your immune system is shot so most people succumb to a second bout of cancer later.   People die every day after chemo and radiation.  Cancer often goes undefeated, no matter what therapy is used.

You can go to Germany and other countries to get alternative cancer treatment. Does it always work? NO. Neither does chemo, radiation, and surgery. Again look at the cancer death stats. One of the underground alternative therapies is Esseac.   Look it up to see the history of its use.   Look past the articles that say it is a scam, because it is not.  Look at her original success in Canada before the government went after her. There was a movement by many important people to make it a legal treatment in Canada. Instead the government powers when after her.  

You will find for input from people on the links below who are using Esseac tea for cancer with success but their success is not reported for fear and reprisal from the medical system. Yes, some still die but many do  live or live longer because of it.   It is underground.  

Here are some reports below by people who are using it with success at sites below.  This is not my site, nor is it the Esseac that I sell.   I use a different brand with cat's claw. I think you will be interested in the input at this site.  There is a second site below where people have beaten cancer with alternative medicine. You won't find this page easily.  

Standard Medicine does not want you to know there is any answer other than theirs.  
Billions of dollars is made off of chemo and radiation treatments. Cancer doctors grow rich even as patients die.  Even in cancer patients that are given no chance of survival with standard medicine, that patient will be told not to try alternative medicine.  The American Cancer Society does not want a cure for cancer, for they make millions off the contributions and research money.

"The cancer industry is probably the most prosperous business in the United States. In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39 percent increase to $173 billion by 2020. 

The simple fact is that the cancer industry employs too many people and produces too much income to allow a cure to be found. All of the current research on cancer drugs is based on the premise that the cancer market will grow, not shrink."

Some sites where cancer survivors have told their story of success:

An interview with a holistic doctor on Esseac

Esseac is one of the alternative therapies used against cancer.  It does not work on some, others it does. Standard medicine is not successful either as evidenced by the death stats above.

So I hope this blog gave you reason to review your stand on herbal medicine and alternative therapies.   It may save your life at some point.  If I ever get cancer, I will take my chances and life with alternative therapies not standard medicine.  We all have choices on how we will live and how we will die.  It should be our decision to make, not some doctor or the government.
