Shampoos are generally made from a mixture of water, some form of foaming agent and a variety of other ingredients that combine to make a product that smells good, looks good and appears to do its intended job of cleaning hair. But some of the ingredients that are commonly used are harsh chemicals that have been shown to be potentially harmful to human health, either individually or in combination with other ingredients, and may pose various health risks ranging from skin conditions to cancer. A really good and healthy alternative to regular shampoo is the sulfate free shampoo and conditioner.

A Killer In Your Fridge ~ Sweet Poison…A MUST READ
If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs, Cramps, Vertigo, Dizziness, Headaches, Tinnitus, Joint pain, Unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss
you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!
Is it reversible?’
I will explain why Aspartame is so dangerous: When the temperature of this sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. Formic acid is the poison found in the sting of fire ants. The methanol toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus.
Many people were being diagnosed in error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence, Methanol toxicity is!
Systemic lupus has become almost as rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually does not know that the Aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues it’s use; irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a life-threatening condition. We have seen patients with systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas.

The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) defines spin as the “specific reporting that could distort the interpretation of results and mislead readers.” Spin Doctors are, thus, the people falsifying data for reasons including financial ties to Big Pharma, to achieve higher professional status and to gain grant monies.
One of the most dramatic effects of spin is seen in a recent study published by JAMA. Researchers reported that over 40 percent of the best designed, peer-reviewed scientific papers published in the world’s top medical journals misrepresented the actual findings of the research. To confirm this and to identify the nature and frequency of distorted presentation or spin, Boutron et al. systematically evaluated 616 published reports of Random Control Trials (RCTs) and after appraising the 72 eligible studies concluded that, “In the representative sample of RCT’s published in 2006 with statistically nonsignificant primary outcomes, the reporting and interpretation of findings was frequently inconsistent with the results.” In other words, most of the published research has been intentionally falsified.
There are five dangerous enemies of good health. They are: tobacco smoking (tobacco in any other form), alcohol even in small amounts, sedentary living like laziness, over eating, and finally negative thoughts like anger, pride, super ego, hatred, jealousy, and hostility. One who wants to remain healthy should avoid these five like deadly poison. Hard work never kills. One should love what one does to avoid distress. A good night’s rest to recharge one’s battery is an added asset. If you get up refreshed, do not fret and fume about the exact number of hours of sleep. I do not know how much sleep one needs. If you have sleep debt, which is daytime sleepiness, you have not had your required quota.
“The best six doctors anywhere,
And no one can deny it,
Are sunshine, water, rest, and air, exercise and diet
These six will gladly you attend,
If only you are willing,
Your mind they’ll ease.
And charge not a shilling!”
— Wayne Fields

Screening & Diagnostic Tests: Don’t fall for the sales push
Preventive healthcare packages (PHP) are targeted at everyone right from age two. While diagnostic tests are necessary to find what made you unhealthy, screening is often unnecessary and harmful. Raj Pradhan collates advice from sensible doctors
High stress levels, junk food intake, sedentary lifestyles all add up to make preventive healthcare programme (PHP) an easy sell for doctors and hospitals.
The question is: What is ‘healthy’? Wellness initiatives like quit smoking, regular exercise, yoga, etc, are undoubtedly crucial for leading a healthy lifestyle; but who is really ‘healthy’?
Senior citizens are most vulnerable to the hardsell for PHP packages; they are quickly converted to patients or put on daily medication because modern medicine does not tell them that several minor aberrations in health parameters can be corrected by exercise and improved diet. Buying heath check-up for parents’ birthday is a good marketing gimmick which shows you care. It’s a ploy. Drug companies organise screening camps which use their own products. Apollo Pharmacy even has people queuing up to get instant blood sugar and pressure testing outside their shops.
