What Big Pharma Can Learn from Steve Martin
Years ago on SNL, Steve Martin did a bit on a new drug he was taking called Pla-cee-bo.
“It’s fantastic!” he said. “Everybody should be taking it!”
In 2003, Merck introduced a new drug called MK-869. It was designed to tinker with the nervous system to provide a feel-good effect. In early trials the drug seemed to work great. Company executives and investors were thrilled.
Then phase II testing was started. The drug was tested against a control group taking only placebo. And that’s when things fell apart. Again, many test subjects taking MK-869 group reported reductions in anxiety. But nearly the same number of people in the placebo group had the same positive response. Further testing confirmed there was no difference between the experimental drug and a placebo. MK-869 was shelved.
The case of MK-869 is far from unique. In recent years, more drugs than ever before are being pulled from clinical trials because they can’t outperform placebos. Even billion-dollar money makers like Prozac are failing the test. Here’s where it gets interesting.
Drug developers are now saying that it’s not that the meds are getting weaker, it’s that the placebo effect is getting stronger!
Why this is happening, they can’t say. But they are spending millions of dollars to try to prove their ridiculous theory.
There are two lessons to be drawn from this:
Doctors and other research scientists have been trained to believe that natural remedies don’t work. But nature tells us over and over again that they do. Trust your body first.
The real cause of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer has been kept "hidden" by the mainstream media. But the truth will soon be out.
But why wait?
Dr. Dwight Lundell, one of the nation’s most respected cardiac surgeons, has just published a book that pulls the covers off this long-standing conspiracy. He has identified the one common cause of all three of these mega-diseases. And he has a program to prevent them – a safe and effective program that he’s used successfully in his practice.In Dr. Lundell's words: "The changes my patients experienced on this program were as dramatic as open heart surgery. Only these changes were forever, as opposed to surgery’s temporary fix. And they were very inexpensive." Get all the details about this life-changing program here. Click here now.
The Wonder Vitamin
Speaking of how hoodwinked the medical establishment and media are, there is more news about the disease-fighting power of natural supplements. . Researchers have now found that the B vitamin, folic acid, is one of the best things you can take for your heart and arteries.
The recently published study showed that folic acid significantly reduced blood pressure and improved blood flow to the legs. Decreased blood flow occurs when the arteries become clogged with fatty deposits. Test subjects were given 400 mcg per day and improvements were seen in only 16 weeks.
In previous studies, folic acid has been shown to reduce levels of the amino acid, homocysteine. At elevated levels, homocysteine is a major risk factor for heart attacks and strokes.
While there are a few good natural sources of folic acid like cow’s liver, spinach and black-eyed peas, it’s difficult to get the amount you need from food only. S A good quality supplement is your best bet to keep your heart and arteries healthy.
Tough Love Is Good Medicine
Eating toxic foods every day will sap your energy and eventually kill you. Associating with toxic people will have the same effect on your emotional well being.
That’s the thesis of Dr. Tim Reynolds, who has written a thought-provoking article on this subject in this week’s THB. “Having toxic people in your life will deplete you of energy, fill you with doubts and damn you to a life of unfulfilled dreams.”
Dr. Reynolds has got a program for identifying the poison people in your life, getting rid of them and replacing them with great people who will help you realize your dreams. You can read it by clicking here.
Power to the Children
We’ve all seen the skyrocketing rates of childhood obesity in recent years. While there are many theories on the cause, there haven’t been many solutions. The numbers keep going up… and up. But now researchers have stumbled upon what may be simple a simple way to get kids to eat what’s good for them.
Researchers from Baylor University studied two groups of obese and overweight Mexican-American children between the ages of 10 and 14. One group was told to read food labels and keep track of all the foods they ate. The control group did not have any nutrition intervention.
At the end of the two-year study, the group that read labels and kept track of the foods they ate showed significant weight loss compared to the control group. They also lowered their cholesterol and improved their body mass index. Pretty impressive I think.
When I read this story, I was reminded of something the cooking guru, Jacques Pepin said on his show several years ago. When he made broccoli for his young daughter, she wouldn’t eat it. But when he let her make it herself, she would eat it all and enjoy it.
Perhaps the solution to the obesity problem is empowering children to be responsible and make healthy food choices for themselves. After all, the best boss is you, even if you’re a kid.
Does your boss make you cringe?
Do you try and hide when you hear your boss coming? Do you dread your weekly, or daily, meetings? The daily grind is for people who don't know how easy it is to be free. Waking up whenever you want to… working on whatever you want to work on. This is the real dream… the freedom to be and do what you really want.

We live in a sea of vibrations, everything and everyone is frequency. We are becoming aware of our true power to influence the quantum field with our words, emotions and intentions. This truth is especially powerful when we join together as a conscious collective with one common goal and one focused intention for global change.
Imagine that all currency/money carries a frequency and vibrational contamination of lack, scarcity, fear, and greed that is energetically attached to the money that we receive and use each day. Think of all the places this money has traveled and all the individuals who have touched this currency leaving an energetic trace of their emotional state and beliefs. Be very aware that you bring this contaminated energy into your wallets and your life. You have the opportunity to use your power of intention to energetically clean and clear all the money that comes into your life with every monetary transaction.

Digging Deep for Healing
For many people, apprehension manifests itself in the physical self as a potent feeling of heaviness or nausea situated in the depths of the lower abdomen. And it is there, at the seat of the second or sacral chakra, that we must lovingly and deliberately confront the anxiety. By rooting down into the deepest physical reaches of ourselves, we can cleanse ourselves of unease and replenish the space it has left behind with tranquil awareness. Much of what we encounter in our daily lives has the potential to awaken feelings of nervousness within us or make us question whether we are truly in control of our lives. When you establish a den of peace within your core, you empower yourself to act rather than react in distressing situations. Your balanced second chakra helps you respond productively to the turmoil around you while your inwardly directed attention steadies you.There are many ways to restore your strength and clear negative energy from your core. To ground yourself and regain your emotional equilibrium, concentrate on the second chakra, picturing it as a funnel of vivid orange light. Reach down toward that light with your awareness and channel your breath into the space it occupies. As you balance the chakra, you will become more adaptive and thus better able to stand strong when faced with rapidly changing conditions. You can channel healing energy into your core by visualizing the area below your belly button as an open space into which you channel white, loving light. Like light and air, sound can be a wonderful tool that helps you find your center. Your voice, when drawn from your core in the form of a deep roar or loud shout, can be the vehicle upon which your anxiety is conveyed into the ether. Take a low stance, much like a football player, root your feet into the earth, and then roar like a lion. Really feel it in your bell! y. It may sound silly, but chances are you will feel much less anxious and much more grounded into your body. A situation that seems hopeless when viewed from a perspective colored by fear may become easily manageable when approached with a serene heart and mind. As you root down into your core, youll discover that the trepidation and helplessness you feel within you is not invincible. Rather, it will respond readily to your efforts to eradicate it, leaving you feeling peaceful and capable of calmly handling any challenging circumstances that arise.
