5 Ways To Be Happy and Healthy

Posted by on Dec 27, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on 5 Ways To Be Happy and Healthy

By Dr. Mercola If I were limited to only one area of my life in which I could aspire to be happy, undoubtedly I would choose my health. In my experience, having a sense of health and well-being opens the door to contentment, purposeful living and pleasure.

It’s easy to regard happiness as something that happens to you, but I believe being happy is a choice, a state of mind you must actively seek. When you are consistently in a happy frame of mind, you...

Posted by on Dec 26, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Ghost in the Machine, Part 1 — Drug Safety and Media Shaped by Big Pharma

Recent examples include the aggressively promoted blood thinners Xarelto and Pradaxa which cause uncontrollable bleeding, the testosterone drug Androgel, for “Low T” linked to noncalcified plaque buildup in coronary arteries, and...

Posted by on Dec 25, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Farmers Incentivized With Cash to Spray New Poison

By Dr. Mercola It was about one year ago in November 2016 that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved Monsanto’s weed killer, XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology, a dicamba variety that is supposedly less prone to vaporization and drift, designed for use with genetically engineered (GE) dicamba-resistant seeds.

Posted by on Dec 25, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on The Logic, Wisdom and Scientific Evidence for the Homeopathic Treatment of Influenza

By Dana Ullman, MPH, CCH This is the time of year that Big Media seeks to appease its biggest advertisers, Big Pharma, by helping to spread fear and panic about this year’s “flu epidemic.” They commonly quote sensationalized statistics, suggesting that you will die or become very ill unless you vaccinate.

If you are in good health, enjoy healthy relationships and have a positive outlook on life, you very likely have cause for celebration, not only on Christmas Day, but also every day throughout the year. While TV commercials and print advertisements seek to influence your attitude and mindset about Christmas (and any number of other holidays), I believe it’s more personal than that. It stands to reason that you can...
