Medical Marijuana Information Compilation – Educate Yourselves and Live

May 5, 2015 by Healthyhank

This month marks my sixth year of research on the topic of this plant! In my thirty five years of researching nutrition and ‘alternative’ healing methods, there has NEVER been a more exciting, encouraging, and hopeful topic than Cannabis! Obtaining knowledge about this plant can literally save the lives of yourself and your family! My interest is primarily in the oils from the plant.

This post contains some complete and profound connections to answers and provides information easily accessed. Places like YouTube provide virtually everything one would need to become independent of the medical establishment for health solutions. The challenge is absorbing such an array of presentations. My objective in this blog post is to streamline your efforts to achieve your success.

In order to quickly dispel any doubt that there are medical health benefits in cannabis, know that there was a US Government patent US6630507 issued to the National Institute of Health [NIH] in 2003! The health benefits claimed in the patent remove ANY question as to whether cannabis has value regarding health…

Just to add additional proof of health benefits is a group of 20 case studies of cancer cases

In 2013, 2014 and 2015 CNN created three documentaries that are quite good. Note the progression of statements and claims as the years progressed. Weed 2013, Weed 2014, Weed 2015. Enjoy…

One of the things that most do not understand is that our Creator made us with an ‘Endocannaboidal’ System. Meaning that we create cannabinoids everyday to live and function normally. New born babies know how to ‘suck’ because their mother created cannabinoids creating the ‘munchies’… The Endocannabinoid System: An Overview

The National Cancer Institute [NCI] is an important government organization compiling just about everything and claim that they are the premier source for cancer information. Unfortunately much of the ‘research’ done on cannabis by the government uses synthetic marijuana… Cannabis and Cannabinoids (PDQ®) – National Cancer Institute

The entire plant has over 420 compounds and at least 66 cannabinoids. Most know about THC [that is where the ‘high’ comes from]. Our bodies have two main receptor sites named CB1 and CB2. CB1 goes directly to the brain [the ‘high’] and CB2 to the immune system. All cells have these sites. The entire plant yields medical results. When the leaves are eaten before the plant is either dried or heated [eating the leaves] will give all of the medical benefits WITHOUT any psychotic affect! Eaten rather than smoked. The Entourage Effect: Whole-Plant Cannabis Medicine.

Just in the past two years the pediatric world has proven that this plant may be the most important solution regarding epileptic seizures. Watching children who have suffered and knowing that many have died is almost too much to take! The demonstration of Charlotte [a twin that had dozens of seizures daily since birth and almost died numerous times] and her turn around since her first dose of cannabis oil is beyond amazing! Medical Marijuana and Pediatric Epilepsy Josh Stanley. Medical Cannabis owns this epileptic seizure!

Politicians MUST educate themselves about the medical side of cannabis and NOT continue in their ignorance allowing so many to suffer and/or die!! Anyone that refuses to learn about cannabis merely proves their arrogance and ignorance!

A closing observation; note the number of deaths from cannabis – NONE! Causes of deaths.

Please share this information as much as possible – there is so much suffering and so many people dying unnecessarily. Be well.

Cannabis Cures Cancer – Educate Yourself and Live…

Cannabis Cures Cancer

This is a very excellent piece by Dr. Mark Sircus… Please excuse the length, it is rather long and can seem to be technical, however, just understand the repeating theme; cancer cells are being killed, cancers are being kept from growing new cells, cancer cells are kept from spreading!

That’s it – all of this is being accomplished by a simple plant that has virtually no negative responses from our bodies. Please don’t allow your ‘opinions’ to stop you from learning more of this important topic. It can save you and your families lives!

In my 40 years of research I have never studied any topic more profound and exciting than cannabis! Dr. Sircus’ summary [at the end] is simple and powerful…

The following is a published by Dr. Sircus;

There should be no more confusion about whether or not marijuana is effective for cancer patients. Medical marijuana is chemotherapy, natural style, for all cancer patients. The two forms of hemp oil, one with THC and CBD and the other CBD alone (which is pretty much legal everywhere) provide the body with chemo therapeutics without the danger and staggering side effects.

There are many chapters in this book about cancer patients using marijuana but in this one we present a quick overview of the science that backs up the assertion that every cancer patient and every oncologist should put medical marijuana on their treatment maps.

What you will see in this chapter is reference to many scientific studies that are all viewable on governmental sites. The United States government is pathetic in its dishonesty about medical marijuana both believing in it and holding patents for its medical use and claiming at the same time that it has no medical use. The federal government and still many states would rather throw innocent people in jail for using medical marijuana than be honest about how much it can help people recover from cancer and other diseases.

Below are summaries to just some of the scientific research out there that sustains the belief that medical marijuana will help people cure their cancer.

One of the most exciting areas of current research in the cannabinoid field is the study of the potential application of these compounds as antitumor drugs. CBD represents the first nontoxic exogenous agent that can significantly decrease Id-1 expression in metastatic breast cancer cells leading to the down-regulation of tumor aggressiveness.[1],[2] The CBD concentrations effective at inhibiting Id-1 expression correlated with those used to inhibit the proliferative and invasive phenotype of breast cancer cells. Of the five cannabinoids tested: cannabidiol, cannabigerol,
cannnabichromene; cannabidiol-acid and THC-acid, it was found that cannabidiol is the most potent inhibitor of cancer cell growth. Taken together, these data might set the bases for a cannabinoid therapy for the management of breast cancer.[3]
Results show that Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol reduces tumor growth, tumor number, and the amount/severity of lung metastases inMMTV-neu mice.[4] Cannabinoids induce ICAM-1, thereby conferring TIMP-1 induction and subsequent decreased cancer cell invasiveness thus inhibits lung cancer invasion and metastasis.[5]

Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Researchers have observed expression of CB1 (24%) and CB2 (55%) in NSCLC patients. They have also shown that the treatment of NSCLC cell lines (A549 and SW-1573) with CB1/CB2- and CB2-specific agonistsWin55,212-2 and JWH-015, respectively, significantly attenuated random as well as growth factor-directed in vitro chemotaxis and chemoinvasion in these cells.[6]

Researchers in lung cancers also reported that they observed significant reduction in focal adhesion complex, which plays an important role in cancer migration.Medical marijuana significantly inhibited in vivo tumor growth and lung metastasis (∼50%).[7]

In research on pancreatic cancer it was found that cannabinoids lead to apoptosis of pancreatic tumor cells via a CB2 receptor and de novo synthesized ceramidedependent up-regulation of p8 and the endoplasmic reticulum stress–related genes ATF-4 and TRB3. These findings may contribute to set the basis for a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of pancreatic cancer as reported by the National Cancer Institute.

Prostate cancer cells possess increased expression of both cannabinoid 1 and 2 receptors, and stimulation of these results in decrease in cell viability, increased apoptosis, and decreased androgen receptor expression and prostate-specific antigen excretion.[8]

In colorectal carcinoma cell lines, cannabidiol protected DNA from oxidative damage, increased endocannabinoid levels and reduced cell proliferation in a CB(1)-, TRPV1- and PPARγ-antagonists sensitive manner. It is concluded that cannabidiol exerts chemopreventive effect in vivo and reduces cell proliferation through multiple mechanisms.[9]

Ovarian cancer represents one of the leading cause of cancer-related deaths for women and is the most common gynecologic malignancy. Results with medical marijuana support a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of ovarian cancer. It is also conceivable that with available cannabinoids as lead compounds, non-habit forming agents that have higher biological effects could be developed.[10]

Examination of a number of human leukaemia and lymphoma cell lines demonstrate that CB2 cannabinoid receptors expressed on malignancies of the immune system may serve as potential targets for the induction of apoptosis. Also, because CB2 agonists lack psychotropic effects, they may serve as novel anticancer agents to selectively target and kill tumors of immune origin.[11] Plant-derived cannabinoids, including Delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), induce apoptosis in leukemic cells.[12]

Cannabinoid-treated tumors showed an increased number of apoptotic cells. This was accompanied by impairment of tumor vascularization, as determined by altered blood vessel morphology and decreased expression of proangiogenic factors (VEGF, placental growth factor, and angiopoietin. Abrogation of EGF-R function was also observed in cannabinoid-treated tumors.[13] These results support a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of skin tumors.

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the third cause of cancer-related death worldwide.When these tumors are in advanced stages, few therapeutic options are available. In this study, the effects of cannabinoids–a novel family of potential anticancer agents–on the growth of HCC was investigated. It was found that Δ(9)- tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ(9)-THC, the main active component of Cannabis sativa) and JWH-015 (a cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB(2)) cannabinoid receptor-selective agonist) reduced the viability of the human HCC cell lines Cannabinoids were able to inhibit tumor growth and ascites in an orthotopic model of HCC xenograft.[14] These findings may contribute to the design of new therapeutic strategies for the management of HCC.

Both cholangiocarcinoma cell lines and surgical specimens from cholangiocarcinoma patients expressed cannabinoid receptors. THC inhibited cell proliferation, migration and invasion, and induced cell apoptosis. THC also decreased actin polymerization and reduced tumor cell survival in anoikis assay. pMEK1/2 and pAkt demonstrated the lower extent than untreated cells. Consequently, THC is potentially used to retard cholangiocarcinoma cell growth and metastasis.[15]

Smoking marijuana might decrease the smoker’s risk for bladder cancer, a new study shows. Retrospectively analyzing a large database of patients, researchers at Kaiser Permanente in California found that patients who reported cannabis use were 45% less likely to be diagnosed with bladder cancer than patients who did not smoke at all.

THC is a potent inducer of apoptosis, even at 1 x IC(50) (inhibitory concentration 50%) concentrations and as early as 6 hours after exposure to the drug. These effects were seen in leukemic cell lines (CEM, HEL-92, and HL60) as well as in peripheral blood mononuclear cells.[16] Cannabinoids represent a novel class of drugs active in increasing the life span in mice carrying Lewis lung tumors and decreasing primary tumor size.[17]

Research has also found a cannabidiol-driven impaired invasion of human cervical cancer (HeLa, C33A) and human lung cancer cells (A549) that was reversed by antagonists to both CB(1) and CB(2) receptorrs as well as to transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1). The decrease of invasion by cannabidiol appeared concomitantly with up regulation of tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinases-1 (TIMP the findings provide a novel mechanism underlying the anti-invasive action of cannabidiol and imply its use as a therapeutic option for the treatment of highly invasive cancers.[18]

A new anticancer quinone (HU-331) was synthesized from cannabidiol. It shows significant high efficacy against human cancer cell lines in vitro and against in vivo tumor grafts in nude mice. Two non-psychotropic cannabinoids, cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabidiol-dimethylheptyl (CBD-DMH), induced apoptosis in a human acute myeloid leukemia (AML) HL-60 cell line.[19]

Other studies show a synthetic and potent cannabinoid receptor agonist, investigated in hepatoma HepG2 cells and a possible signal transduction pathway that is proposed, indicates a potential positive role in liver cancer.[20] Cannabinoids have been found to counteract intestinal inflammation and colon cancer.[21]

The control of the cellular proliferation has become a focus of major attention as opening new therapeutic possibilities for the use of cannabinoids as potential antitumor agents.[22] Cannabinoid treatment inhibits angiogenesis of gliomas in vivo.[23] Remarkably, cannabinoids kill glioma cells selectively and can protect nontransformed glial cells from death. These and other findings reviewed here might set the basis for a potential use of cannabinoids in the management of gliomas. Other confirming studies may provide the basis for a new therapeutic approach for the
treatment of malignant gliomas.[24]

In Summary:

Cannabinoids are found to exert their anti-cancer effects in a number of ways and in a variety of tissues;

Triggering cell death, through a mechanism called apoptosis.

Stopping cells from dividing.

Preventing new blood vessels from growing into tumours.

Reducing the chances of cancer cells spreading through the body, by stopping cells
from moving or invading neighbouring tissue.

Speeding up the cell’s internal ‘waste disposal machine’ – a process known as
autophagy – which can lead to cell death.

All these effects are thought to be caused by cannabinoids locking onto the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. Almost daily we are seeing new or confirming evidence that Cannibinoids can be used to great benefit in cancer treatment of many types.

Medical Marijuana Follow-up…

September 13, 2013 by Healthyhank

This plant is without a doubt the most amazing plant on earth!  I knew quite a bit about the nutrition and the industrial side of the hemp plant when I wrote in my blog in June and July of 2010. I was in the process on learning/confirming about the medical side…  January 2013 I wrote a post about the medical side of cannabis and my purpose here is to update that with more information that will allow you to expand your opinion/education of this plant named Cannabis.

The first link is from the cable program “Wealth Channel”.  This is an hour long documentary about the history and status of the medical use of the cannabis plant.  This is a much better piece than the program that Dr. Gupta CNN’s chief medical correspondent made after he apologized for a week about not doing enough research and “buying into” the Governments disinformation about Medical Marijuana… 

The Wealth channel has numerous examples of the long term success using cannabis.  You will be shocked when you find that the US Government via the University of Mississippi has been supplying marijuana to some patients for the past thirty years!  Irvin Rosenfeld has a rare bone disease that grows tumors on his bones.  He receives hundreds of ‘joints’ a month from the government!

You will also be amazed to learn about Kathy Jordon who has ALS [Lou Gehrig’s disease] for the past 30 years and has outlived some of her doctors.  Only smoking two ‘joints’ a day her ALS is arrested to the same level that it was 25 years ago!

Another very important part of the more recent information about Medical Marijuana is the affect on seizures!  This video link shows interviews with two mothers about their children and their epilepsy disease.  Charlotte and Zaki both have suffered with seizures [up to 20 – 30+ per hour] for many years of their lives!  After their first dose of the “cannabis oil” the seizures stopped or diminished 97%!

BTW the oil from this particular plant has ‘0’ psychotic effect because the plant has less than 1/2% THC and 17% CBD’s.  Even if you tried, you could not get “high” with this plant! There are now more than 35 children [over 200 waiting] in Colorado using this plant and getting astounding results…

The group in Colorado growing this special low THC and high CBD plant is named the Realm of Caring Foundation.  View the stories of children AND an adult that have received serious results using the plant that has NO psychotic effect!

For the sake of you and your family please educate yourself about the possibilities of wellness using this plant!  If you are in a State that allows MM you have the power to protect your family from most medical challenges!  If not go to for CBD’s in tincture form that can be mailed to you…  Be well.


The Water of Life! This Could Save Your Life! And It’s Free!

July 10, 2013 by Healthyhank

Many years ago [1958] I was in the Navy and was curious about prisoners of war survival.  I was also preparing myself to join the UDT [underwater demolition team] and was learning about survival methods.  In these searches I learned about people drinking their urine and how that fluid saved their lives.  My initial reaction was like yours – Yuck!

Only knowledge will move you through that :-).  For many years I continued to hear and read about encounters with injuries, emergencies, survival stories and just the simple use of UT [Urine Therapy] in infections etc.  Surfers have used their urine to heal/neutralize jelly fish stings for years!

It’s important to me that I give my perspective about UT and the opportunity to have this in your arsenal for health and survival!  When you do your homework on this topic, you will take the control of your health [especially in emergencies], to a much higher level! 

 UT has been used for centuries in various cultures.  It has been argued that it cannot be right to take back into the body something which the body is apparently discarding.  Yet this objection ignores the principle of COMPOSTING as practiced by organic gardeners.  Rotting dead leaves and vegetables, when blended back into the soil, provide valuable mineral salts to nourish new plant life.  The same principle holds good for the human body.

Please go to and purchase the book by John Armstrong “The Water of Life”.  Disregard the various cover colors – the original was printed in 1937.  Reading his work shows us that the battle of “disease management” was alive and well 75 years ago!  Another very short book to consider is “The Choice Is Clear” by Allen E. Banik. 

I remember reading a small hard cover book 25 years ago [don’t remember the name] that railed about the downfall of the Nation’s health because of the pharmaceutical industryThe book was written in 1886!  Reading it today, you would not have to change much!  The populous today is extremely toxic beyond what anyone could imagine!  Virtually all auto immune diseases have toxins as its foundation.

Let’s look at some basics; our urine is processed through the most sophisticated distiller that exists – our kidneys.  The fluid we call urine is an incredible solution that has many attributes that we probably never knew about.  It is probably the ‘cleanest’ fluid on the planet!

Here is another perspective; while a woman is carrying her baby in the first three months the fluids that the fetus is living in are primarily hers.  The next six months the fluids are primarily the fetus’ urine!  Obviously not ‘toxic/dirty water’…  The kidneys are the most efficient distiller in existence!  Urine is probably the most pure fluid on earth.  Most high end cosmetics use ‘urea’ extensively since there are few substances on earth that are better for healing skin tissue!

Here is a statement that will stretch you a bit!  If you had a poisonous bite/sting or nut allergy, put drops of your urine on your tongue about ½ minute plus after bite/reaction, the lymph node sensors in the lower jaw/mouth/tongue will evaluate the challenge/need and tell the body to create the antidote/solution!  Go to – this lengthy [2+ hours] interview has powerful information on ‘distilled water’ [just the first ½ hour is powerful].

The range of healing solutions that UT can bring to the table is astounding!  Cancer, common cold, rheumatism, arthritis, obesity, prostate challenge, pyorrhea and the list goes on and on!  The critics of UT have very weak cases and are $$ motivated in my opinion.  Remember there is NO money to be made with UT!

Educate yourself and live!

Rebounding – the Simplest, Powerful and Most Effective Exercise! Update!

June 11, 2013 by Healthyhank

Update ~four years later… Now at 72 years old I can appreciate my 25 years of rebounding! During these past 12 years I have recovered from a serious spinal injury and I believe that rebounding played/plays a vital role in solving and maintaining my quality of life!  When I first broke my back and was in bed for over three months I was not able to use the re-bounder.  Shortly after I would just stand on the material and mentally visualize myself going up and down.  Then slowly but surely I was able to move up and down and after many months was able to re-bound.  Just the mental challenge was part of my recovery.  When anyone see’s my MRI’s even now you would shake your heads in amazement… God is so good!

When I first get up in the morning I take care of the basics and then go out to my gym.  No matter how stiff and painful I feel, I will rebound very lightly and within five minutes I feel better.  Normally I will rebound lightly for five minutes, more aggressively for the next five and the then quite aggressively the last five.  Knowing how important our lymphatic system is, I have a feeling of well-being after I finish… From this point I do weights, and then finish with my inversion table to stretch my spine similar to traction [this was my pain medications for about 5 years of my recovery]!

After over twenty years, my re-bounder finally gave out…  I had a client that bought a Cellerciser so I looked into it, met David Hall and understood why his patented design is so good for us.  Since I have used the Cellerciser [check out some stories] I have seen changes in my body that are exciting; namely lean muscle development and contouring… Compared to my old one this has numerous design benefits that are unique.  Remember that you will flex every muscle in your body many times each minute!  If this is too pricey try to purchase one that will hold your weight and talks about the strength characteristics of the unit.

For those that have not seen the original post on rebounding it’s below…

Twenty five years ago I learned that we had over two times more lymphatic fluid than we have blood!  What are these lymphatic vessels, lymph fluid and lymph nodes that make up our lymphatic system?  Well along with your spleen the lymphatic system carries the white blood cells made in your bone marrow that defend you against germs.  Your bone marrow and thymus produce the cells in lymph.  They are all part of this important system

Remember the blister on your heel?  It had clear fluid – that’s lymphatic fluid.  This fluid bathes every cell and ensures that they are able to get the care that they need.  The lymphatic system helps clear away infections and keeps your body fluids in balance.  When it’s not working properly (becoming toxic and sludge) fluid will build up in tissue and the nodes will swell called “swollen glands“.  The result of sludge fluid and a toxic lymph system is infections, leading to the worst – cancer.  The lymphatic system is the ‘garbage collector’ sucking up metabolic garbage and toxins from extracellular fluid of every organ! Critically important!

So how do we ensure that we keep our lymph fluids clean and flowing?  I want to talk about rebounding on a small trampoline.  You can Google ‘rebounding’ and get a ton of information that will be very helpful.  While you’re looking into that you can also search ‘body brushing’ – this is also another effective way to move lymph fluids.  Rebounding is by far the most effective.  I am able to rebound even though I fractured my back 11 years ago and had severe spinal column damage

You don’t even have to be jumping off of the material on the small trampoline or rebounder – just keep your heals on the material and start to move your arms like a turkey trying to fly.  Start slowly when starting for just a minute or two and later work up to 10 -15 minutes a day.  On the bottom cycle you will compress waste into the fluid and on the top of the cycle you will manually open the one way valves of the lymph vessels and move fluid into and through the lymph nodes – the lymphatic filters.  This opening and closing of the valves will move fluid through the nodes and accomplish a very important function.

My wife and I have been rebounding for over twenty years and I believe that it is probably the single most important reason for our health!  In our 70’s we don’t use any prescription drugs.

Remember when kids start bouncing on the bed?  The more they bounced the happier they got!  That’s because they were producing endorphins…  When you rebound after about 5 minutes you will begin to produce endorphins and this will bring your mood up to a pleasing level.  When I am having a difficult day I rebound numerous times…

Remember, there are few things that you can do that would be better for your immune system than rebounding on a small trampoline.   There are all kinds available from elaborate to simple inexpensive ones.  A moderately priced one would probably be better than the cheapest one.  Enjoy this experience and make it a permanent part of your daily routine.  It will insure you a long healthy life!  Be blessed.  Educate yourself and live!  Remember we are on our own!

Now Hear This… Not All Thieves Are Stupid!!

March 23, 2013 by Healthyhank


Some people left their car in the long-term parking at San Jose while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people’s home in Pebble Beach and robbed it. So I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener.

This gives us something to think about with all our new electronic technology.

2. GPS.

Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard.

When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house.

The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.

Something to consider if you have a GPS – don’t put your home address in it… Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.


I never thought of this…….

This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen. 20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says ‘I received your text asking about our Pin number and I’ve replied a little while ago.’

When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text ‘hubby’ in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.

Moral of the lesson:

a. Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list. Avoid using names like Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Dad, Mom, etc….

b. And very importantly, when sensitive info is being asked through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.

c. Also, when you’re being texted by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them. If you don’t reach them, be very careful about going places to meet ‘family and friends’ who text you.


A Simple WEED is the most powerful medicine in the world! YES!

January 26, 2013 by Healthyhank

World War II started about when I was born in 1941… the main supplier of hemp had been Japan, so the US Government asked farmers to create their “Victory Farms” to grow much needed industrial hemp.  The reason that this was necessary was because in 1937 the government passed “The 1937 Marijuana Tax Act” and basically outlawed farmers from growing hemp.  Keep in mind that industrial hemp does NOT have the psychotic THC to “get high”!  Even industrial hemp is classified as a type one drug!

I wrote about hemp on my blog in 2010 covering the industrial uses and also the food value of hemp.   In this post I want to discuss the medical value of medical marijuana/cannabis!  Please start by watching the brief video by Dr. David Allen who is a retired cardiac surgeon who learned about THC and CBD’s [the chemical components of cannabis].  After watching his comments you will be more prepared to comprehend the magnitude of what I will be discussing.

Having been a health coach for 30+ years now, I have learned that just nutritional supplementation will NOT keep us from getting the aggressive diseases that we’re confronted with every day.  I have also learned that God has made our bodies healing system complete, IF it has the tools from foods that we eat.  In my opinion the help/aid that supplements bring to the table can be defensive/preventative weapons; however, very few IF ANY will be OFFENSIVE WEAPONS!

Since the industrial giants have ruined our farm lands and foods we have a very difficult time getting “foods that heal”!  As you have seen from Dr. Allen’s video hemp/cannabis is a plant that heals!  There is no doubt about this fact.  The research available is without question as to the healing characteristics of THC [+THCA] and CBD [cannabinoids].  It should be noted that the plant juiced green and/or consumed before heated or aged has NO psychotic affect – YET it is very powerful medicine!! There is a company in Colorado that has the CBD medicine made from industrial hemp [this is a legal product] with potent medicine!

Since I live in California [as in 16 other States] we have the ability to access or grow small amounts of the plants and have learned to make the essential oils of cannabis called Delta 9 [also called RSO oils].  Please watch the movie “Run from the Cure” by Rick Simpson who has taught the world about the medicinal oils available to all of us.

During these past four years we have seen this medicine/oils help many people… topical skin challenges, sleep challenges, serious internal tumor issues, neurotransmitter/nerve issues, cognitive abilities, just to mention a few.  This is also probably the best anti-aging substance on the planet!

It’s important to note that most ‘conservative’ people have a mental block when this topic comes up… that’s ok; just remember that you cannot even become a critic or skeptic UNTIL you have researched/studied the topic!  Einstein said “to condemn before investigation is the height of ignorance”

Ignoring this simple plant could cost you and/or your loved ones their lives.  Chemo, radiation and surgery success is dismal.  Some 87% of oncologists said that they would never use their medicine!

Times are changing regarding hemp [this should be the largest cash crop in the country] and farming.  There are 27 States that have petitioned the government to allow farms to grow the industrial hemp.  Please read my post about the uses of industrial hemp on my blog.  One that I love is that Henry Ford built a car body that you could NOT dent even with a sledge hammer! 🙂

I guarantee you that if American History had been told/taught properly; about the Louisiana Purchase and the War of 1812 and the role that industrial hemp played – it would have been a VERY interesting topic!  I would not have been as bored! 🙂

Please remember; if you ever have any questions please call or write.  Be well, educate yourself and live!

2012 Top ID Theft Tips of the Year…

December 8, 2012 by Healthyhank

2012 Top Tips of the Year

 As the year draws to a close, we revisit five of the top Investigator Tips shared during 2012.

1.      Nurture a Healthy Identity Theft Mindset.

Know that it can happen to you. We’ve taken calls from people who believed they couldn’t become a victim of identity theft. Their reasons: “I don’t use credit”; “I shred everything”; “I have bad credit”; “Everything’s in my spouse’s name”; and so on. The fact is anyone can become a victim and everyone needs to take steps to reduce their risk.

2.      Help Yourself to Strong Passwords.

Avoid the simple, widely-used choices for passwords. “12345,” “123456,” and “123456789” were the top three most common passwords found when 32 million passwords exposed by a social network hack were analyzed. The other passwords in the list of the top ten were: “iloveyou,” “princess,” “rockyou,” “1234567,” “12345678,” and “abc123.”

3.      The “Why” Behind the Tip.

Know when account statements arrive, and check them when received. If a statement doesn’t arrive as usual, it may mean that someone has called the financial institution involved, posed as you, changed the address on the account, and requested a new card. Call your financial institution to inquire about any late statements; ask if changes to the account were made recently.

4.      Take Steps to Secure Your Mobile Apps.

If your mobile device is lost or stolen, react quickly to minimize damage caused by unauthorized access to information on the device. Install a program that allows you to remotely wipe data from the device if it is lost or stolen.

5.      Beware of IRS-Themed Scams.

Do not respond to email messages that appear to be from the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS does not send taxpayers unsolicited emails about their tax accounts nor does it request detailed personal information through email.  Also beware of PayPal, Citi Corp other banks etc.

These materials are derived from the research and discovery activities of Kroll Advisory Solutions Fraud Specialists and Licensed Investigators, and have been gathered from personal, historical, and aggregated experience performing specialized restoration services on behalf of Identity Theft victims.  More information about ID and Legal protection.
