asemicolonlife It's been a rough few days to say the least. There are so many things floating in my head that I won't discuss now. But it is so hard when the people who you think "get it" don't.
How do you deal with this?? #frustrated #warrior #educate #bekindalways #awareness #crohns #colitis #chronicallyill #chronicdisease #walkamileinmyshoes #guiltistheworst #arthritisdonotcomeback #IBD

martha300 I've had dermatomyositis for 21 years. dermatomyositis is an inflammation in the muscles that causes rashes in the skin. Sometimes it's hard to deal with it because of the five medications that I have to take in order for me to stay alive, imagine that? There might not be a cure for this but I always stay positive about myself, my parents are there for me, and friends who support me to stay strong. But also I wonder if there's that special someone who is willing to deal with my diagnose and help me forget about it. That's all I'm wishing for, for someone who will know how to help me forget about my diagnose and for that person to love me for who I am. That's all I'm asking for nothing else. #dermatomyositis #warrior #imawarrior #imastrongperson #notgivingup #imstrongerthanyou #immunesystemsucks #imalwayssmiling #chronicdisease #waitingforprincecharming #whereareyou #foreversingle #foreveralone #iwishuponastar 15h

infowarsteam NaturalNews) The mainstream media and their high-paying pharmaceutical sponsors make it seem like disease is random, striking people without warning. In this way of thinking, people start to feel like helpless victims. They can quickly become scared and lose touch with their bodies and minds. They start lining up for routine medical checks and injections. Sometimes, fear-stricken patients end up submitting to barbaric medical practices like a mastectomy or hysterectomy. Yes, doctors now encourage women to anticipate cancer by cutting off and gutting out their healthy body parts!

Amidst all the fear, disinformation and unnecessary cutting, independent media and health education sites like NaturalNews and the Weston A. Price Foundation stand out, reminding the world that the disease process starts within the body and is connected to the under-utilization of important nutrients. It's a nutrient-depleted, acidic internal environment that allows disease to take hold. Processed foods are known to deplete the beneficial microbes in the gut, hurting the body's ability to defend itself against infection. Understanding these principles puts people back in charge of their own health instead of inciting a fear of the world around them.

The mainstream media is now finally confessing that the nutrient-void western diet is at at the helm of diseased bodies. These diets, which consist mainly of refined sugars, saturated fats, and processed foods, ultimately destroy the gut microbes that regulate the immune system.

Mainstream media confesses that Western diets put people in a state of diseaseThe truth can no longer be ignored. CNN is now coming out and admitting that Western diets are a main cause of disease. Ian Myles from the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases describes a Western diet as "overconsumption of over-refined sugars, highly refined and saturated fats, animal protein.

ruca_billy Let me just stop the flare up for your convenience. Yes it was just last week and here I am back in the hospital. It's frustrating trying to cope with a chronic illness. I'm not asking that you understand. I'm asking that you acknowledge it's existence. It's called an invisible illness for a reason. We may look fine on the outside, but on the inside our bodies are destroying us. #autoimmunedisease #vasculitis #behcetsdisease #crohnsdisease #fibromyalgia #spoonie #crohnie #spoonie4life #thereisnocure #chronicdisease #irritableboweldisease 21h

infowarsteam As antibiotic-resistant bacteria continue to sweep the nation, tens of thousands (at least) are expected to suffer from ailments that just can’t be beaten by conventional medicine. In fact, a recent government document states that approximately 80,000 individuals could die if there were a “widespread outbreak” of a blood infection that is resistant to antibiotics.

The National Risk Register of Civil Emergencies says such an outbreak could be expected to hit 200,000 people – and two in five of them “might die.” What’s more, the doc states that “high numbers of deaths could also be expected” from other resistant bacteria, which could compromise the safety of our modern medicine.

The Cabinet Office document says the number of infections “complicated” by antimicrobial resistance is expected to “increase markedly over the next 20 years”. “Without effective antibiotics, even minor surgery and routine operations could become high-risk procedures, leading to increased duration of illness and ultimately premature mortality.” The document adds: “If a widespread outbreak were to occur, we could expect around 200,000 people to be affected by a bacterial blood infection that could not be treated effectively with existing drugs, and around 80,000 of these people might die.” Meanwhile, hospitals in England are reporting that patients are carrying record numbers of antibiotic-resistant diseases. Laboratory-confirmed cases of a strain of gut bacteria resistant to pharmaceuticals has risen from five cases to more than 600 in just 7 years.

The document came to similar conclusions as numerous other reports analyzing the issue of antibiotic-resistance. There is no question that antibiotics have lent a helping hand in treating various ailments, but now this modern medicine is fueling an issue that was perhaps never considered before. Since their introduction, antibiotics have slowly been fueling the development of superbugs – bacteria that are completely resistant to our conventional treatments.Another report says that superbugs could claim 10 million lives each year as well as $100 trillion by 2050.

  •   laraycharnell Do you think this is purposely done ? Smh so sad 1d
  •   hoghealthyorganicgreen As an RN working on a busy post-op surgical unit(for 16yrs) protocl for the surgical patient was: administer a dose of antibiotic via IV before surgery & again during surgery. When in recovery and back on our unit IV antibiotics were given twice/day until discharged... Then a course of oral antibiotics were prescribed for 10 days. It was considered "prevention"... As a result we had more admission with MRSA. Protocol/policy were broken. An is located patient with MRSA would be allowed to share a room with another patient when beds were needed.UGH! 23h
