If this were the 60s or 70s and you told someone you were using cannabis for pain relief or to treat an illness, you might get a funny look. Today, however, countless legitimate medicinal uses have been discovered for the plant. It’s finally receiving positive attention from a society that’s condemned it for nearly a century.
“Regular” people are standing up for cannabis, unafraid of the consequences imposed by an unfair system. Rather than continue to condemn it, people are openly exploring and sharing information about its benefits. Even doctors are speaking out about it.
In an effort to support the revolutionary work being done in the field of cannabis-based medicine, I’ve compiled some of the most prominent information concerning the plant’s health benefits. It seems to have been created for the explicit purpose of helping the human body.

When opening up to the world of spirit, in meditation or any psychic craft, it is important to know how to protect oneself from negative influence. While some may believe that psychic protection isn’t necessary, it has been my personal experience that it is important. One of my teachers said once “Unless you are always in a state of love, then you need psychic protection.” Particularly if you are sensitive or an empath, then you are already very sensitive and vulnerable to energy.
When one opens oneself up, it can attract unwanted influence. There are plenty of negative entities and thought-forms on the planet in this day and age. If your third eye is open, it is not uncommon to see these entities with one’s peripheral vision, which can be an alarming experience. This article will explore some ways and techniques that will help to protect you psychically. Continue reading The Importance of Psychic Protection with Step-By-Step Guide

(ANTIMEDIA) — A lawsuit filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut alleges Heritage Pharmaceuticals, EpiPen-maker Mylan NV, and others conspired to manipulate U.S. drug prices. The suit was filed on behalf of the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, and at least 12 others.
Naming Heritage Pharmaceuticals Inc. as the “ringleader” of the alleged conspiracy, the suit claims the prices of doxycycline hyclate, an antibiotic, and glyburide, a treatment drug for diabetics, were kept artificially high due to a scheme involving Mylan, Mayne Pharma, Aurobindo Pharma, Teva Pharmaceuticals, and Citron Pharma LLC. Federal prosecutors claim the price-fixing scheme was orchestrated by executives who have left Heritage. Continue reading Big Pharma Accused of Illegal Price-Fixing, What You’re Not Being Told

You probably already know that selling your soul in a job that stresses you out can predispose you to illness. However, what if I told you, as a physician, that finding your calling could significantly improve not just your mental and spiritual health, but also your physical health? Let me tell you a few stories to demonstrate this.
The Harmonica Angel
In 1996, Andy Mackie was told he would die within a year if he stopped taking the 15 heart medications that doctors told him were saving his life after he had undergone nine heart surgeries. But the side effects of the drugs made Andy’s quality of life so miserable that he decided to stop his drugs and live the rest of his life as comfortably and happily as possible. Since he figured he did not have long to live, he decided to do something that had always been a dream, he took the $600 he would have spent on his heart medicines and bought 300 harmonicas for children in public school, complete with lessons from Andy himself.

A new report just confirmed what green energy activists have been saying for some time – that solar (among other clean, non-petro based energies) can fuel the world.
The U.S. just shattered all previous photovoltaic installation records, with 4,143 megawatts of solar PV installed in just the last quarter of 2016. That’s a new megawatt of solar energy being installed ever 32 minutes. As if that weren’t hopeful enough news to break our dependence on oil, the pace of solar installations is still picking up. In 2017, solar is expected to break records again.
With an 88 percent growth rate for solar installations in the U.S. in 2015, and the pace of installation showing no signs of stopping, there is really no need for oil and gas companies to keep tearing up our land, harming natural ecosystems, and poisoning our water. The solar industry is also providing jobs, and helping to change environmental degradation. Continue reading Solar Energy Growth in US Booms 88 Percent
