But This May Be Far Worse...

An increasingly alarmed army of international scientists have reached a controversial conclusion:

The "electrosmog" that first began developing with the rollout of the electrical grid a century ago and now envelops every inhabitant of Earth is responsible for many of the diseases that impair or kill them.

During the past 100 years, we have methodically filled in the electromagnetic spectrum far beyond what occurs in nature.

Gym for Your Skin

You probably think nothing of going to the gym to exercise the muscles in your arms, legs, shoulders and back. But what about the 57 muscles in your face and neck?

These muscles need attention too, and regular facial exercisers say toning and tightening the muscles in your face can lead to fewer lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone, less tension, a firmer jaw line and even fewer headaches and less eyestrain.

Facial exercises have become quite trendy in recent years. At one Manhattan pop-up boutique called Face Love Fitness, for instance, it's said that massage and purposeful movement to your facial muscles, done two to three times a week, helps with detoxification and increases oxygen and blood circulation to your skin. As reported by CNN:

Adverse Childhood Experiences

...and the Lifelong Consequences of Trauma

Many people can identify a person in their lives who struggles with a chronic illness like heart disease, diabetes, or hypertension. Most people also know someone who struggles with mental illness, substance abuse, or relationships in general. Traditionally, the health care system would point to high-risk behaviors such as poor diet, drug use, or a sedentary lifestyle as the primary causal factors. Questions for patients have focused on “What’s wrong with you?” rather than “What happened to you?” A 1998 study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Kaiser Permanente is leading to a paradigm shift in the medical community’s approach to disease. This study of more than 17,000 middle-class Americans documented quite clearly that adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) can contribute significantly to negative adult physical and mental health outcomes and affect more than 60% of adults.1,2 This continues to be reaffirmed with more recent studies.

Angela Crowley, MD, is up-front about it. Accurately diagnosing an autoimmune disease can be tricky.

“People on average see six doctors over a period of 4 years before they get a diagnosis.”

This is because, in general, autoimmune diseases tend to arrive unpredictably, disguised as other conditions, offering only confusing clues as to what they are.

There are more than 100 Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune Disease List

One of the functions of the immune system is to protect the body by responding to invading microorganisms, such as viruses or bacteria, by producing antibodies or sensitized lymphocytes (types of white blood cells). Under normal conditions, an immune response cannot be triggered against the cells of one's own body. In some cases, however, immune cells make a mistake and attack the very cells that they are meant to protect. This can lead to a variety of autoimmune diseases. They encompass a broad category of related diseases in which the person's immune system attacks his or her own tissue.

What is Crohn’s disease?

Crohn’s disease, sometimes called ileitis, ileocolitis or regional enteritis, is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It is a serious condition – chronic inflammation can harm the whole wall of the colon, not just the superficial lining (as in another IBD, ulcerative colitis). Crohn’s disease can involve any part of the digestive tract, including the lower end of the small intestine. Sections of normal healthy bowel may be found between areas of diseased bowel, a presentation known as “skip lesions.”
