Boy Recovers from Autism After Going Gluten Free

Do you think that certain foods can hurt or help a child suffering from autism? There is a woman claiming that, with a diet free of gluten her son recovered from autism.

Every day more and more children are being diagnosed with autism all over the world. New research shows that the mechanism of the increased immune reactivity to gluten in a subset of children with autism appears to be distinct from the one involved with celiac disease.Boy Recovers from Autism After Going Gluten Free

Senior author Armin Alaedini, Ph.D said: “There is evidence that immune system abnormalities are associated with symptoms in a huge number of individuals with autism.”

Dr. Alaedini also said: “In addition, several studies have evaluated defects in GI barrier function and gastrointestinal symptoms in affected patients. Some have pointed to higher family history of celiac disease, frequency of celiac disease or elevated defense system to gluten among autistic children, but these studies have been inconsistent about such associations”.

The gastrointestinal symptoms are present in almost half of all children suffering from autism. While it is possible that casein proteins and gluten boost the body’s immune response, causing inflammation in the GI tract, it is also a possibility that intolerances and food allergies aggravate the symptoms of autism. It hasn’t been understood why yet, but the GFCF diet does not help all children with autism. Those who have the chronic digestive problems or food allergies seem to benefit the most from the diet.

Baby formula is loaded with GMOs – Avoid these brands

There is a petition circulating around the Internet that is trying to persuade three of the biggest infant formula brands in the United States – Nestle (Gerber Good, Start), Mead Johnson Nutrition (Enfamil) and Abbott Laboratories (Similac) – to stop using genetically modified (GM) ingredients in the preparation of their baby products. Every one of these powdered formulas is packed with soy and corn byproducts, together with loads of sugar, which only confirms the fact that they are using genetically modified products and are harming the children in the U.S. and all over the world.Baby formula is loaded with GMOs - Avoid these brands

For example the Natural News warned everyone about these dangerous food products for infants several years ago, mostly focusing on Similac’s “Go & Grow” formula. The product, which is marketed for babies aged from 9 to 24 months, claims that it contains “balanced nutrition for older babies.” But as we stated above, the product is nearly half made of corn syrup solids (sugar), and the other half or so of soybean oil, soy protein isolate, more sugar in the form of lactose and safflower oil.

Even though it is an unhealthy product in general, based on these ingredients, Similac Go & Grow is like an utter freak show of GM additives, which are especially dangerous for the development of children. GMOs are linked to gut damage, hormone disruption and other problems that, again, especially in children, can lead to chronic health problems for their whole life.

But Similac is not the only one – practically every major brand of commercial infant formula is made mostly of sugar components, soy, corn, and each of which is more or less GM, because of the fact that upwards of 90 percent of sugar beet crops, corn, and soy planted in the U.S. are GMOs.

Pediatrician Michelle Perro stated: “I insist upon an organic commercial formula, for the infant that is unable to nurse”, warning against commercial, GMO – packed infant formulas.

“Because of the toxic effects of herbicides, mostly glyphosate (due to its prolific usage) as well as other genetically engineered foods and organophosphates in non – organic commercial formulas, these must not be presented as an option for infant feeding. There is no amount of acceptable herbicide or GMO that should be in the diets of our children and infants, in order to ensure their health. ”

Major infant formula brands spent millions defeating GMO labeling

They are not just poisoning our children, Abbott, Mead Johnson and Nestle, but they want to keep it a secret. Each of these companies spent a lot of money in the fight against California’s GMO labeling initiative, Proposition 37, which should have required warnings about GMO content contained in the infant formulas.

For example Abbott reportedly spent $334,500 in support of the “No on 37” campaign, while Mead Johnson, which holds a much smaller share of the market, spent $80,000. Nestle, the leader in the commercial infant formula, spent about $1,461,600 to stop Californians from knowing what kind of food they are consuming. All together, these three companies made about $135 billion in sales only in 2012.

The President of Green America, Aliza Gravitz, said: “I think that it is pretty frustrating that parents in the United States cannot be sure about the food they consume, like the citizens in more than 60 other countries including Saudi Arabia, China and Mexico, when it comes to GM ingredients. All parents have a right to feed their children with healthy food options.”

That is why Green America started this petition on these Big Three infant formula manufacturers to stop using GMOs, which has been tested many times, and had never proven safe for human consumption. It is only logical to stop feeding our children with untested genetic materials that could lead to permanent health damage, because the long – term effects of GMOs in humans has never been studied, and babies’ bodies are already less secured and less strong to fight with the processing toxins.

11 Super Health Benefits in Just One Celery Stalk


If apples are the fruits with most health accolades, the spinach is for sure the one that leads the healthy veggie brigade. When compared with apples, celery is a less known vegetable or the benefits from the celery are less known. That is why when you read this long list of benefits, we are sure that you will join its growing list of lovers.  11 Super Health Benefits in Just One Celery Stalk

  1. Celery eases digestion: Many say that celery tastes like “crunchy water,” and that this is the reason why it is so beneficial for your digestive system. The high amount of water in the celery, combined with the insoluble fiber in it, makes it an amazing tool for easy passage of stool. Note: because celery has cleansing and diuretic properties, people suffering from diarrhea should avoid eating it.
  2. If you are watching your weight celery is a great choice. One large stalk of celery contains only 10 calories! So, next time you go to the grocery store add celery to your shopping list and enjoy it in your stir – fries, soups and salads.
  3. It lowers blood pressure: Phthalides are an active compound contained in celery which has proven to boost circulatory health. Raw, whole celery reduces high blood pressure.
  4. It helps you calm down: Celery for stress – relief? Oh yes! The essential oil in celery, and the minerals, especially magnesium, soothe the nervous system. If you enjoy a celery – based snack in the evening, you will sleep like a baby.
  5. Celery reduces “bad” cholesterol: There is a component contained in celery called butylphthalide, which gives the vegetable its scent and flavor. Guess what: this component also reduces bad cholesterol! A Chicago University conducted a research that showed that just two stalks of celery a day can reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) by up to 7 points!
  6. It contains “good” salts. Yes, it does contain sodium, but it is far from table salt. The salt in celery is natural, organic and essential for your health.
  7. Celery can combat cancer: Two studies at the University of Illinois shown that luteolin – a powerful flavonoid found in celery, inhibits the growth of cancer cells, especially in the pancreas. Another study suggests that by regular intake of celery you could significantly delay and in some cases stop completely the formation of breast cancer cells.
  8. It cares for your eyes. Up to 10 percent of your daily dose of vitamin A can be found in one large stalk of celery, a group of nutrients that prevent age – related degeneration of vision and protects the eyes.
  9. It regulates the body’s alkaline balance, thus protecting you from problems like acidity.
  10. 10. This is not just hearsay: it can amplify your sex life. Dr. Alan R. Hirsch, Director of the Smeel and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, says 2 pheromones in celery – androstenol and androstenone – boost your arousal levels. Whenever you chew on a celery stalk they are boosted.
  11. Celery reduces inflammation. If you are suffering from asthma, acne, joint pains or lung infections, eating more celery will bring the much – needed relief.

Useful Tips:

Always go for the upright stalks of celery that snap when bent. The leaves should be crisp and fresh.  When selecting celery, remember this rule of thumb:  The stronger the flavor, the darker the color.

Freshly chopped celery keeps the nutrients for a longer time much better than if you chop and store it even for a few hours.

Steamed celery not only retains its flavor, but also most of its nutrients – to be precise 99 percent of them!

3 Simple Exercises To Relieve Back Pain & Neck Pain


A great way to deal with shoulder pain and stiff back and neck is the professional massage. But you cannot afford always to being massaged by a professional.

Physiotherapist from Los Angeles, Nadia Perez, recommends the three following simple techniques for self – massaging. These techniques are simple to practice and can help in such situations.3 Simple Exercises To Relieve Back Pain & Neck Pain

  1. 1. Stretching the Neck and Chest

Improper sleeping, continuous usage of computers and mobile phones are forcing us to tilt our neck forward which leads to pain and stiffness in the body. Therefore occasionally we need to stretch the back and neck.

Lift your head slowly while standing with your hands placed behind your back, in order to stretch your whole neck and body. Remember, while doing this technique you must not relax your stomach. Hold the spine in a neutral position. Remain in this position from 20 – 30 seconds.

  1. 2. Self Massaging Your Neck

This technique is especially recommended in situations where you cannot turn your head to the side and you have severe pain in the neck. All you need is a harder sponge and a tennis ball or a yoga cube.

Take the the ball in one hand and the yoga cube in the other. While facing it, stand one foot away from the wall, and throw your left leg back. Hold the cube against the wall, before your right shoulder and place the ball right between the cube and your neck’s curve. Slowly press your body against the wall. Then switch sides and repeat the exercise on the other side of the neck.

  1. 3. Self Massaging the Upper Part of Your Back

Back pain is often associated with pain in the neck. So it is recommended to massage your back, when we are massaging the neck, whether you feel pain in it or not. Stand against the wall with your back facing the wall.

Place the tennis ball between the spine and the top of the right shoulder and tilt slowly your body to the wall. In order to massage the internal muscles as well, make a circular motion with your hand.

Cancer develops from fungal infections, like Candida


Cancer is on the doorstep of knocking out heart disease as the number one killer in the United States, by looking at the numbers related to those who die from cancer and those who are diagnosed with it, which are terrifying. Recent data shows that cancer claims nearly 23% of all deaths or at least 576,691 people per year, and it is estimated that approximately 1 in 3 people will be diagnosed with some type of cancer further in their lives.Cancer develops from fungal infections, like Candida

You can find many common articles, threads, videos among experts on what causes cancer, aside from the obvious lifestyle choices like alcohol and smoking. However, it is a bit too simplistic, to think that cancer is largely caused by one thing…or is it? As it turns out, it may not be that complicated.

A simple fungal infection can cause cancer

In 1963 about 50% of all Americans suffered from an “unknown” systemic fungal infection – according to The Home Medical Encyclopedia. Many different factors can cause these infections, which alter the optimal state of our intestinal ecology, most notably antibiotics, excessive grain and processed sugar consumption, smoking, chronic stress, birth control pills, xenoestrogens, heavy metal contamination and alcohol. These factors combined with diets severely deficient in active probiotics and enzymes, have paved the way for Candida albicans – the most prevalent fungal infection to take over.
But how an eventual cancer diagnosis can be caused by a fungal problem like Candida?

Dr. Robert Young stated:

“Bacteria, mold and fungi/yeast are not the cause of a cancerous condition but they are the evidence and the result of tissues and cells biologically transforming from a an unhealthy state into healthy state.” Dr. Young astutely observed that, “over – acidification of the body leads to the development of fungal infections and chronic yeast and finally a cancerous state of the tissues and cells.”

If we look further back at this theory, we will see the understanding that yeasts like Candida are anaerobes – meaning that they generate their energy in places without oxygen. When they enter the blood stream, they can dramatically reduce oxygen levels and colonize in certain areas of the body. This results in local cells switching their energy system from one that uses oxygen into  is not oxygen based. Cancer cells use exactly this kind of system, because they don’t need oxygen to generate their energy. In 1931, Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for giving information to the world about this property of cancer cells and that oxygen was their biggest enemy!

It has also been shown that beneficial bacteria in your intestine are known to release anti – cancer vitamins (like vitamin K, biotin, B-12 and folic acid) from your foods and even to produce sodium butyrate and to direct up to 85 % of your immune response,  which causes self – destruction in the cancer cells. If the acidity of the gut increases, the beneficial bacteria doesn’t work well and also if you have a systemic Candida infection, the beneficial bacteria will be severely impaired in their anti – cancer function.

Cancer is a fungus, it was confirmed at the Mayo clinic, and it is accompanied by late stage fungal infections or it can be caused by a fungus. Johns Hopkins confirmed that the drug itraconazole, commonly used to treat toenail fungus, can also stop angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels commonly seen in cancers which allow metastases (spreading of cancer throughout the body) to be made.

Is it any surprise that cancer is so rampant, now when you nnow all these truths? How many people do you know that have:

  • Smoked cigarettes
  • Live with chronic underlying stress
  • Have metal dental fillings and have been vaccinated (exposed to mercury)
  • Taken antibiotics (or any other prescription medication)
  • Used birth control pills
  • Consumed foods and beverages out of plastic containers
  • Drank beer, wine, or hard alcohol regularly
  • Consumed caffeine on a daily basis
  • Eaten non – organic foods, grains (especially gluten),foods high in sugars and starches (like potatoes)

Any ONE of the above mentioned things can ease the overgrowth of Candida, and in many cases people are usually dialing with 2 or 3 of these from their history. It is very important to mention the fact that a systemic Candida infection is not a quick fix, so even if you change your lifestyle now it will not completely reverse the problem. Sometimes it can take years of a lifestyle change that completely avoids the factors mentioned above (maybe even more) and a diet rich in pro biotic rich foods and enzyme to completely eliminate Candida.

There is no doubt that you need to at least avoid a Candida overgrowth, if you want to avoid the express train called cancer.

These Popular Cereals Contain Paint Thinner, You and Your Family Could Be Eating It

Would you go and buy your low fat veggie burger if you knew that the main ingredient in it is MSG – Monosodium Glutamate? Can you imagine serving your family with your favorite breakfast cereal if you were familiar with the fact that it contains BHT – Butylated Hydroxytoluene, a product used for embalming fluid and in jet fuel?

Be careful, because the foods that are labeled as “natural” and considered “healthy” contain many harmful chemicals in them, used as flavor enhancers and food preservatives – and these chemicals are often presented under unknown names.These Popular Cereals Contain Paint Thinner, You and Your Family Could Be Eating It

 

SOME OF THE MINOR PROBLEMS WITH EATING TSP INCLUDE:

  • Abdominal burning
  • The reduction of bone density due to mineral leeching
  • Shock
  • Serious irritation of gastric mucosa
  • Calcification of the kidneys

The challenge to be informed about what we and our children eat every day grows ever more complex. Trader Joe’s is one of the smaller grocery store chains that many people trust it’s higher quality foods without any harmful ingredients and unnecessary additives that can cause developmental delays, neurological damage or cancer. But trisodium phosphate was recently discovered by one mom in her children’s Trader Joe’s breakfast cereal. Trisodium phosphate is an industrial strength paint thinner, and since then everyone has been wondering what it is doing there. Even more, the same ingredient is found in other popular cereals as well.

 TOXIC INGREDIENTS IN YOUR KID’S CEREAL

  • BHA:An GRAS additive, BHA has been connected to cancer in many It was concluded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Toxicology Programs that it can be “reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen.” Both BHT and BHA are considered to have at low enough levels to be safe for consumption by the FDA.
  • Sugar:Many kids’ cereals are high in HFCS – high fructose corn syrup or sugar or, which is also known as corn sugar or corn syrup. Generally, if you see “sugar” of any kind in GMO or non – organic cereal, it is very likely that it’s
  • Annatto:This natural flavoring has been under many investigations and is now entering into controversy. According to WebMD, it has a high impact on the blood sugar levels so please be aware of that if your child has diabetes. It also has been connected with allergies, and the Food Intolerance Network has gotten reports linking it to irritability and headaches. You may want to avoid this flavoring if you have child prone to allergies or a sensitive eater.
  • GMOs:Corn and sugar made from GMO products are contained in the most conventional cereals. Remember that these same manufacturers for distribution overseas create GMO free cereals.
  • BHT:This food is classified by U.S. law as “generally recommended as safe” – “GRAS”, and is found in many cereals. This means that experts approved them as food additives without additional testing of their effects and consider them safe. In 2014, the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), an environmental safety watchdog group, published “Generally Recognized as Secret: Chemicals Added to Food in the U.S. ” This report found loopholes in the GRAS classification, including expert opinions that disregarded evidence of allergic reactions and research data coming from the company themselves, that compromise the real safety of GRAS additives. BHT may be a possible ADHD trigger and is also a chemical additive.
  • Hydrogenated Oils: These oils are full of trans fats, which are closely connected to immune problems, cancer and heart disease.
  • Soy Lecithin:Derived from GMO soy, this additive often contains toxins. According to The Cornucopia Institute, hexane is often involved in soy lecithin processing, and even though it is removed, trace amounts can be left behind. That residue is listed by that organization as a potential neurotoxin and carcinogen even though it is unregulated by the FDA.

TOP 10 TOXIC KID CEREALS

When it came to the listing “most toxic” cereals, there was a real challenge. Because we didn’t know if we should list those with the most dangerous levels of vitamin, dyes, BHT or those with the most sugar! We could go on and on for a long time, but after checking some current ingredients we believe that these are some of the worst offenders. All of these are fortified, contain GMOs and use extrusion processing. Sugars listed are the amount for 1 serving size in grams.

  • Kellogg’s Apple Jacks
  • General Mills Boo Berry/Count Chocula/Franken Berry
  • Kellogg’s Fruit Loops
  • General Mills Lucky Charms
  • Kellogss’s Corn Pops
  • Cap’N Crunch CrunchBerries
  • Post Golden Crisps
  • Kellogg’s Honey Smacks
  • Post Foods Fruity Pebbles

These are just few of the worst offenders and we could have kept going because the list is long. There were a few brands we weren’t sure if they were still making them, like Reese’s Puffs – if they do, please avoid it! The rule is very simple: if it has a “flavor” (cinnamon, apple, chocolate) or if it’s covered in sugar, it probably contains  high amounts of sugar. It most likely contains artificial dyes if it’s colored, especially red #40, which is connected to ADHD. And if it’s a conventional brand, it most likely has artificial flavors and additives.
