Natures Ultimate "Cure All" Is Not What You Think!
G'day, and welcome to the 5th edition of our Life Saving Health Solutions newsletter.
We hope you all had a very enjoyable festive and holiday season.
Hey, can you believe it’s February already! Didn’t we just have Christmas and New Year? This year is certainly off to a flyer, no doubt, and hopefully one of your new year’s resolutions and goals for 2014 is to get healthy and stay healthy!
Nothing matters more than your health does it? But most of the time you don’t even think about it until something goes wrong. Well, don’t wait for something to go wrong I say! (Be proactive so you don’t have to be reactive). So start now, this instant if you haven’t already done so!
The Most Valuable and Prized Medicinal Plant on the Planet…Okay, I promised in our last newsletter that we would be talking about the incredible health benefits and healing power of cannabis, and in particular, cannabis oil. And yes I know, in the beginning it’s hard to get your head around the fact that cannabis is actually good for you! But this is only because of the negativity and outright lies we’ve been fed all of these years about cannabis and how dangerous it supposedly is. And I have to admit, in the beginning for me I was totally against the legalization of cannabis… absolutely 100%.
But not now!
And I have - for the most part - Rick Simpson to thank for that. Watching his documentary video "Run From the Cure” totally changed my perception of cannabis completely. Although I’m not greatly in favour of people smoking cannabis (I want it legalized so I can grow a few plants in my backyard for the medicinal benefits), these people are going to do it anyway so at least make it legal! Even if you made alcohol and cigarettes illegal people would still smoke and drink (it bewilders me as to why alcohol and cigarettes are “legal” when they cause so many deaths and ruin so many lives yet “pot” hasn’t been shown to cause any deaths or make a person violent like alcohol yet it’s illegal. Do you think government tax revenue might have something to do with it?).
Well anyway, governments around the world are now bowing to pressure from their citizens to legalize cannabis. In fact, in the last year there’s been more states and countries legalize marijuana than in the last 5 years! It’s sweeping the world like wild fire (except over here in Australia but we’re working on changing this!). When I interviewed Rick Simpson back in December we spoke for quite a while before and after the interview. He said that 10 years ago you were battling to find anyone who was for the legalization of cannabis, let alone out there preaching the benefits and rallying to get it made legal. But today is a very different story! You can’t go on the internet, or Facebook or Twitter, or pick up the newspaper, or watch the news without seeing a story about medical marijuana or someone protesting against the ridiculous outlawing of cannabis.
People power always wins out in the end folks!
I also saw where the state of Colorado is going to receive record tax revenue this year after legalizing cannabis for medical and recreational purposes. They are definitely onto a winner over there. I suggest you read the short article below then send a copy to your local politician or congressman!

Why Cannabis Oil Works so Well…I could go on all day why our governments should legalize but I’d like to cover some of the reasons why cannabis works so well when it’s ingested by the human body. So here’s the most important one…
Our bodies have cannabinoid receptors everywhere (cannabinoids are the chemical compounds in marijuana that contain the powerful healing and cancer fighting properties). So when you ingest cannabis, these cannabinoids attach themselves to our cannabinoid receptors. From there they can go to work and heal the body. Any medical researcher will tell you that the hardest part of developing any drug and making it work is you need to get the drug components to stay in the body first (not get rejected or broken down by the body and then end up in the dump basket!) and then you need to make it so the drug finds its way to the specific target (tumor, growth, etc) so it can do its work. But with cannabis you don’t have to worry about the body rejecting or bypassing it because the
cannabinoids just stick quite naturally to our cannabinoid receptors. So they can’t go anywhere except where they’re needed! I find it quite remarkable that marijuana contains cannabinoids and our bodies have cannabinoid receptors so that they can accept them. (I’m no rocket scientist but I think there might be a connection here?).
What Diseases Does Cannabis Help With?The list is long and still growing. The main disease is of course cancer… all types of cancers in fact. Then you have diabetes, seizures, migraines, anxiety and depression, along with Alzheimer’s disease, to name a few. The evidence is now overwhelming. The testimonials are incredible (just search “hemp oil” or “cannabis oil” on YouTube and see for yourself).
To finish off I suggest you read this tremendous article on “the top 10 health benefits of cannabis” if you still have any doubts. It’s one of the best going around…
Top 10 Health Benefits of Marijuana
This Just in...“Probiotics May Benefit People with Autism”
In a 2012 publication by Harvard Medical School, the authors stated that… “The brain and the gastrointestinal (GI) system are intimately connected – so intimately that they should be viewed as one system.”
Based on this the researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) performed a study exploring the use of probiotics to help alleviate the symptoms of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The results look very promising indeed! Autism is characterised by behaviors such as impaired communication, lessened social interaction and repetitive behaviors, just to name a few. Many individuals who have autism also have digestive or gastrointestinal difficulties so fixing this problem could go a long way to helping fix the symptoms of autism.
Caltech biology professor, Sarkis K. Mazmanian, says… “Traditional research has studied autism as a genetic disorder and a disorder of the brain, but our work shows that gut bacteria may contribute to ASD-like symptoms in ways that were previously unappreciated. Gut physiology appears to have effects on what are currently presumed to be brain functions.”
This research is ground-breaking and very enlightening. Most experts believe autism is a genetic condition (of course vaccines are also known to play a role but we aren’t going to go there!). I’ve always believed that intestinal flora play a more prominent role in the health of the human body than the medical profession realize. This is just another feather in the bow.
And Finally...“Why You Need to Eat Plenty of Red Chile Peppers”
I struggle to eat red chile peppers because they’re so hot, but I do because of the powerful health benefits. Chile peppers contain capsaicin, which is known to protect blood vessels. They also increase your metabolic rate (thermo genic) so you burn more calories, along with helping your brain release endorphins, which have a mood stimulating effect. Now here’s the hard part… When it comes to chile peppers, the hotter the better!
What's in Store For Next Month?In December I had the privilege of interviewing the great Dr Garry Gordon. This man has one of the greatest minds of anyone on this planet. He practically knows everything there is to know about the human body and how to heal it. This is the man who set up the very first protocol for the safe and effective use of EDTA oral chelation back in the 1970's.
Don't miss what he has to say!

So next month we are going to be talking about the amazing benefits of two little known cancer fighting plants and all round healers... the soursop fruit and blackseed. They are the "up and comers". And the research results look very exciting!
So until next month, take care and stay safe.
Yours in health and best regards,
