A lot of people are originally drawn to yoga for the health benefits. People are interested in getting in shape and looking fit. But once they discover the spiritual benefits, and all that it entails, they begin to see yoga as more than just a fitness routine.
Yoga is an ancient Indian body of knowledge that dates back more than 500 years. The word “Yoga” came from the Sanskrit word “yuj” which means “to unite or integrate.” Yoga is about the union of a person’s own consciousness with universal consciousness.
Ancient Yogis believed that in order for man to be in harmony with himself and his environment, he had to integrate the body, the mind, and the spirit. These three become integrated when emotion, action, and intelligence are in balance. There is a way to achieve and maintain this balance. The ancient Yogis taught that this is done through exercise, breathing, and meditation. These are the three main Yoga structures.
Yoga offers a huge potential for growth and heightened awareness. When you start to practice it, you soon realize that the more you go to yoga classes, the better you feel. It helps you focus on... read more
Forks Over Knives examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
Back in the 1960s, Cornell University nutritional scientist Dr. T. Colin Campbell was working to find a way to feed the citizens of impoverished Third World nations when a trip to the Philippines forever changed the way he thought about food consumption. There, he discovered that the rates of liver cancer among affluent ren who subsisted on diets rich in animal-based foods were notably higher than in ren consuming plant-based diets. Meanwhile, surgeon Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, head of the Breast Cancer Task Force at Cleveland Clinic, was also discovering that many of the diseases he was seeing in patients were... read more
Russia Today investigates the fracking epidemic in rural areas all over the United States in Frack Them All! Industry representatives claim every possible precaution is taken in the natural resource extraction process that has become popular, and a lightning rod for criticism, in recent years, but residents in areas where extraction sites have been built coming down with a slew of unexplained illnesses and ailments are just one example of the data being compiled showing those precautions are not nearly effective enough.
Whereas traditional drilling has been a vertical method straight down into the earth below it, fracking is a process where a drill descends to a desired depth, then turns at a 90-degree angle and extends for thousands of feet to the location where the natural gas is believed to be trapped. A mix of water, sand, and various chemicals are then pumped into the well at extremely high pressure to create fissures in the shale so the gas can escape.... read more
G. Edward Griffin marshals the evidence that cancer is a deficiency disease-like scurvy or pellagra-aggravated by the lack of an essential food compound in modern man’s diet. That substance is vitamin B17. In its purified form developed for cancer therapy, it is known as Laetrile. This story is not approved by orthodox medicine. The FDA, the AMA, and The American Cancer Society have labeled it fraud and quackery.
Yet the evidence is clear that here, at last, is the final answer to the cancer riddle. Why has orthodox medicine waged war against this non-drug approach? The author contends that the answer is to be found, not in science, but in politics-and is based upon the hidden economic and power agenda of those who dominate the medical establishment.... read more
Only someone who has had it knows how paralyzing depression can be. No one is immune. There's a one in four chance that depression will affect you at some stage in your life. It's bad enough to get it, but the stigma can make you feel much worse. This is the truth about depression.
People battle with chronic depression for decades. It is extraordinary that thousands of us will suffer from depression and yet so many people will feel the need to hide it. Why? Because of the stigma. People with depression are judged to be weak. Some people even go so far as they think it does not exist. Stephen Nolan wanted to find out the real truth about depression.
Nolan meets Prof Ian Anderson at Univeristy of Manchester, where he studies the science behind depression. With the help of brain imaging, his research has found that in the hippocampus area of the brain, there is 25% less grey matter in people suffering with depression than those who don’t.

Chemical flame retardants are everywhere. Our furniture. Our homes. Our bodies. But do they work as promised? And are they making us sick?
The three chemical companies producing flame retardants would prefer that we not ask these questions, and they've spent millions of dollars on lobbyists, publicists and influencers to ensure that we don't. It might remind you of the Big Tobacco cover-up. Which makes sense, since Big Tobacco has had a hand in this, too.
Set against the backdrop of the award-winning 2012 Chicago Tribune investigative series "Playing With Fire," TOXIC HOT SEAT threads together an intricate story of manipulation that details how Big Tobacco skillfully convinced fire safety officials to back a standard that, in effect, requires all furniture to be filled with toxic flame retardants. The film continues ... read more
Cancer is the only disease that has been defeated dozens of times without anyone knowing it. In the last 100 years, dozens of doctors, scientists, and researchers have developed diverse and effective solutions against cancer only to be thwarted by the political and propaganda power of the drug-dominated medical profession.
The standard treatment for cancer has been the same for many decades and is comprised of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, the latter two being toxic to healthy cells in the human body.
These treatments, as well as the research surrounding cancer, generate millions of dollars each year for the medical industry, with a typical cancer patient spending on-average $50,000 to treat the disease.
Over the last century, several natural cancer treatments have been developed and used to treat patients in the US and in other developed countries.
One example is a natural concoction of herbs called Essiac, created by nurse Rene Caisse in Canada in the 1920?s. Another is... read more

After watching Morgan Spurlock’s documentary Super Size Me, comedian and former health writer, Tom Naughton had a few problems with the conclusions that the film presented. When Spurlock, in Super Size Me, decides to spend one month eating just McDonald’s food, he not only gains a huge amount of weight, but sees his moods fluctuate and his cholesterol soar. Taking on Spurlock’s own experiment as a dare, Naughton proved that you could actually lose weight and lower your cholesterol on a diet of fries and burgers. Beyond using his own experience as a centerpiece of the film, he interviews doctors and nutritionists who weigh in on the issue. Shedding light on an already complicated obesity and health problem, Naughton demonstrates how a low-calorie diet works and the importance of feeling full instead of going... read more
