By July 4, 2013 - 12:42pm

Heres some of the highlights from this particular issue that I found to worthwhile and I'm not even done reading it myself. They are as follows.

Astma Exclusive:

End Your Child's Wheezing without Drugs

Cervical Cancer: What all Parents (and Their Children) Should Know about the HPV Vaccine

'How I avoided a Hysterectomy through Diet'

Sorry, I don't have a specific link to it because I somehow deleted the email that I got pertaining to it. But still heres some of the links to it. http://wddty-us.com http://wddty-us.com/subscribe http://wddty.com

Basically, found WDDTY while was at one of the local Whole Foods. Looked and read through it to make sure that I wanted to subscribed to it. In which I did because to me I found this magazine is really truly important in this day and age. Going into the future as well. Not just UK, Europe, US, but all over the place for sure.

I'm going to be copying, pasting, emailing, blogging, posting about in other parts of the web that I belong to, and etc.

Please feel free to forward, copy, paste this email about it in other parts of the web that you belong to, and etc.

Think thats it for now.

Thank you, again, in advance.

Back with another spelling mistake asthma

Natural ‎Botox: ‎Safer Ways to ‎beat ‎Winkles

Back yet again with my response to a particular comment to my comment regarding.

In which again, I counteract your response to my comment here.

You got to be kidding me on this. I for one found these alternative magazines, journals, or whatever they called to be better. Then those mainstream magazines, journals, or whatever. In which I do take everything with a gain of salt.


Flyer. ‎WholeFoods.

Peer reviewed journals.


ack yet again with a few more of my responses to couple of particular comments regarding this.

Oh okay, but oh please. Because to me its just not a logical argument and etc.

Many of the claims made in alternative publications or by alternative practitioners are based off tradition, or hunches or a misunderstanding or misinterpretation of the scientific literature.
In order to judge the validity of a claim, it is vitally important to understand HOW the claimant reached their conclusion about this claim.

Did they conduct a controlled study?

Or did they hear that this is what people traditionally claimed?

Did they just trust their instincts?

Did it merely work for them?

Did some random on the internet claim it?

The beauty of an understanding of scientific method and statistics is that you can verify the basis of claims.

I strongly, strongly urge you to study statistics so that you can verify whether the claims that you are spreading on the internet are actually based on evidence.

Huh and need further explanation as to what meant here.

Have you ever studied university level stats? Until you have this knowledge it is difficult to fully understand why the information in these alternative publications is not actually evidence based. Why trust your health to something which is unproven?

Back yet again with more of my responses to more particular comments regarding this.

Hmm interesting, but at the same time oh please. Because to me your arguments are the same old ones. Well, as far as I can tell.

The difficulty with relying on common sense is that it is often contradictory.
Which is true 'Out of sight, out of mind' or 'Absence makes makes the heart grow fonder'? What about 'Opposites attract' or 'birds of a feather flock together'?
It was common sense in the 16th century that Queen Elizabeth I came down with small pox because she had a bath! (Not joking, kind of wish I was!!)
It was common sense just to let your children get chicken pox, because it was safer to get it as a child than to have it as an adult. This always made complete sense to me! I had absolutely no idea until recently that children die from chicken pox every year in Australia.
Common sense is great, it is just also important to figure out what it is actually based upon. Is it merely cultural tradition?

Tell you, truth WDDTY isn't a free pamphlet section at Whole Foods. But its exactly a magazine, in which you have to pay for. Maybe subscribe to it afterwards.

Actually it is relevant, as it proves that "natural" remedies are a combination of taking less than effective herbs or homeopathic remedies and finding support for that, even if your validation has to come from the free pamphlet section at Whole Foods.

Back yet again with another one of my responses to another particular comments regarding this

In which I say, oh please.

Do you think you are the first person to come here and try to "enlighten" us? I have listened to patients refuse conventional treatment for colon cancer in favor of coffee enemas and herbal cancer treatment. Women who don't want hysterectomies try to take evening primrose oil, chasteberry capsules and black cohosh for things like endometriosis or fibroids. Patients whose joints are worn away refuse joint replacement and try and take glucosamine and cinnamon capsules. They "did their research" and somewhere heard someone who had "cured" their condition in those ways. And they believed. Hoxsey, the Greek Cancer Cure, chlorella for heart disease, green tea capsules for diabetes: I have heard it all. I have been called unsupportive for not getting on the bandwagon of cheer leaders when family and friends chose these methods of self treatment. I wish I could scream that back at them, but they aren't alive for me to fight with.

Back yet again with another one of the comments to my responses regarding this.

I guess I don't understand the responses. Maybe she is voice to text for replies (which almost makes me wish for he whom we shall not speak of).
I used to get all those magazines, although the ones I got at the health store were always free. The "cures" have not changed much, surprisingly. I would put them in my student midwife bag and then tote them to my accupressure classes all the way at Bastyr (this is before the midwifery school moved there). I read all about blue green algae for weight loss, apple cider vinegar being a panacea and about aromatherapy
