City council voted to shrink number of dispensaries from 1,000 to 70
LOS ANGELES - The City Council gave final approval Tuesday to a much-anticipated ordinance that will close most pot dispensaries and curb the so-called “Green Rush” that swept through much of California in recent years.

The ordinance, which passed 9-3, caps the number of dispensaries at 70 and provides guidelines that will push the clinics out of neighborhoods and into industrial areas. FROM

Is It Candida, or PMS?

Candida, also known as Candida albicans, is the scientific name for a type of yeast. It is a fungus that lives almost everywhere, including in your body. Usually, your immune system keeps yeast under control. However, if you are sick, or taking antibiotics, yeast can multiply and cause an infection in various parts of the body as toxins produced by the yeast enter the blood stream.

Symptoms of Candida are numerous and can include fatigue, headache, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, mood swings, poor memory and concentration, and cravings for sweets, to name a few. Sounds a lot like PMS, doesn’t it. That’s because excess estrogen can contribute to Candida, therefore a variety of female conditions co-exist with Candida. The most well known form of yeast overgrowth occurs in the form of vaginal yeast infections, which affect a majority of women at least once in their lifetime. Some women, depending on their dietary habits and immune system, experience recurring yeast infections.

Since many female conditions co-exist with Candida, sometimes it’s difficult to determine whether it’s PMS or Candida. If you are experiencing recurring yeast infections seeing a health care professional may help to get to the root cause of your symptoms. Candida testing should be considered as part of a thorough evaluation. There are tests available that can help you determine 1) the likelihood of a Candida yeast overgrowth being the cause of your health issues, and 2) how much overgrowth there is. One such test is the Organic Acid Test (OAT).

You can order the OAT test online from the following Websites, however I cannot vouch for the quality of any of the labs listed, nor am I responsible for the contents of their Websites. I’m only providing this brief list as a matter of convenience:

  • Great Plains Laboratory. The test requisition form (included in test kit) must be signed by a medical practitioner and accompany all specimens. Off hand, I couldn’t find what they’re charging for this test.

Yeast infections affect different parts of the body in different ways:

  1. Thrush is a yeast infection that causes white patches in your mouth
  2. Esophagitis is thrush that spreads to your esophagus, the tube that takes food from your mouth to your stomach. Esophagitis can make it hard or painful to swallow
  3. Women can get vaginal yeast infections, causing itchiness, pain and discharge
  4. Yeast infections of the skin cause itching and rashes
  5. Yeast infections in your bloodstream can be life-threatening

Treatment for Candida albicans includes conventional over-the-counter medication or prescription medication such as topical creams, anti-fungal drugs, probiotics, and pharmaceuticals.

Suggested natural remedies for detoxification and Candida:

Lactobacillus acidophilus is bacteria that normally live in the human small intestine and vagina. This is a type of beneficial bacteria (commonly used probiotic, or “friendly,” bacteria) is typically found in most yogurts (more so in the organic, sugar free yogurts) can help to support the immune system and maintain normal levels of yeast in the system.

Would you like fries with your Ammonia Burger?

(NaturalNews) If you’re in the beef business, what do you do with all the extra cow parts and trimmings that have traditionally been sold off for use in pet food? You scrape them together into a pink mass, inject them with a chemical to kill the e.coli, and sell them to fast food restaurants to make into hamburgers.

The USDA knows about this procedure and obviously doesn’t care that people are eating ammonia in their hamburgers. Apparently fast food restaurants and schools don’t care either.

Refusing to Buy Mandatory Health Insurance

January 5, 2010 by Terri  
Filed under Pastiche

(NaturalNews) “Even if Obama’s health care reform bill becomes law, mandating that all Americans buy health insurance policies for a failed system of “sick care”, I will refuse to comply. I’ve read the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights, and nowhere in that document do I find that the federal government has the power to force consumers to purchase for-profit insurance products from private companies.”

Personally speaking, I totally agree with Mike Adams on this one. Forcing people to buy health insurance from privately owned companies is not only unconstitutional, it’s inherently wrong. We should not be forced to pay for insurance coverage that sucks canal water and only serves to increase bottom line profits for the insurance companies. I’m already paying way more than I can afford for the little coverage (with a 5,000.00 deductible) that I now have…. and may have to drop.

I will not be forced into buying some status quo health insurance policy, where premiums and deductibles increase on a whim (mine have gone up 30% TWICE in one year), coverage is low, and the health insurance companies get to dictate what will or will not be covered. I fail to understand how those who are crying about “government controlled health care” are dead silent about the fact that the health insurance companies are the ones who decide what sort of health care you’re going to get, or not get… or what meds you can or cannot have, and refuse to cover alternative therapies. The insurance companies are the ones coming between you and your doctor. Why isn’t that as alarming to the fringe of the fringe as the public option seems to be?

Props to Mike Adams! I hope everyone joins in and tells the gov’t what they can do with that mandate!
