I really can't say that I felt any different, and I'm still not totally convinced of the detox claims. I'd probably need to buy at least two more boxes for myself, which still leaves my wife who also wants to try them.
The pads did not react with my shoulder or stomach....only my feet. Could the discoloration be my sweat reacting with the herbs inside? Or, is it really the toxins leaving my body? Most of the companies offer to perform lab tests on the soiled pads so you can find out what kind of heavy metals and pesticides have accumulated in your body over the years. Obviously, there's a conflict of interest there, so I won't be mailing my pads in.
On the brighter side, I have heard from customers that the pads do in fact get lighter on the second box. Once I get more positive feedback, I'll consider forking over some more of my hard earned money. ................Matt

Start with soft drinks (or soda). All soft drinks are simply ruinous to your health. Coke, 7-Up, Pepsi, Sprite, Dr Pepper, etc. It's ALL GARBAGE and it's RUINING YOUR HEALTH. Read the ingredients on the side of a can of soda. It will usually list 17-24 grams of sugar. That's the equivalent of 6-10 teaspoons of sugar with each and every 12 oz can that you're guzzling down. When you ingest refined sugar, you lower your body's immunity for FOUR HOURS. If you're drinking soft drinks here and there throughout the day, then you're keeping your immunity suppressed all day long. People with suppressed immunity seem to easily pick up every bug that's going around. Have you ever noticed that little connection in people (especially teenagers) who drink sodas all day long?
Another problem with soft drinks is the tremendous amount of PHOSPHOROUS that's contained in them. Large amounts of phosphorous are bad news for the body because they combine with other minerals (like Calcium) and tie them up for eventual excretion. Now calcium is a mineral that your body DOES NEED in large amounts in your bloodstream for daily use. If your soft drink is yanking the calcium out of your blood stream, where does the body get the calcium it needs for everyday jobs? Why, it gets it from your teeth and bones!
Women who are worried about osteoporosis would be way ahead of the game by avoiding soft drinks. Replace the soft drinks with WATER. It usually takes a couple of days to break a sugar addiction (oh, you never thought of YOU as being addicted to anything? Well, answer me this: Do you have a CRAVING for soft drinks when you don't have them? If you do, then you are definitely addicted). Satisfy your desire for sugar by eating sweet fruit (like banannas) during the adjustment period. Eventually you will come to love drinking water. (and it's only 35 cents per gallon)

The Health Ranger Radio Show is launching March 24. It will bring the message of health freedom, disease prevention, superfoods nutrition and skeptical consumerism to potentially millions of listeners across the United States and Canada. The show is to broadcast each weeknight (Monday - Friday) from 5pm - 6pm CST (Central Standard Time) and can be heard on local AM stations or downloaded from the internet at www.GCNlive.com
The Health Ranger Radio show carries on the tradition of Natural News by empowering listeners with honest, independent information about how they can avoid the dangers of processed foods, dangerous pharmaceuticals and toxic consumer products while enhancing their health with superfoods nutrition, natural remedies, regular exercise and other naturopathic modalities. The show will also feature coverage of the FDA, Big Pharma, the USDA and topics like mad cow disease, MRSA superbugs, natural treatments for cancer, how to reverse diabetes and many others. (prnewsnow.com)
Do what you can to make sure this show is on the radio. We don't need anymore talk radio disappointments like Rush Limbaugh or Bob and Tom....and there isn't any good music on terrestrial radio either. At least people can now get educated on an AM station, but you need to help make it happen. If I hear REO Speedwagon one more time..... ......Matt

Panel backs GMO taro ban
Percy Schmeiser's decade-long legal odyssey has finally come to an end - and he's got a cheque for $660 to prove it.The 77-year-old Saskatchewan farmer and his wife, Louise, became international folk heroes for their legal struggle with agribusiness giant Monsanto Canada Inc., after the company sued them for violating its patent on genetically engineered canola seeds in 1997.Although the Schmeisers eventually wound up losing their court battle with the St. Louis-based company in a landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision in 2004, the couple have now earned a moral victory that they hope will encourage others to carry on their cause.
Yesterday, Monsanto agreed to pay the Schmeisers $660 to settle a small-claims court case they brought against the company for costs associated with removing the patented Roundup Ready canola from their field in 2005."After 10 years, finally justice has been served," Mr. Schmeiser said in an interview last night. "I really feel that if a farmer is now contaminated, he has a right to go after Monsanto for liability and to clean up the contamination. By settling out of court, Monsanto now realizes the seriousness of the liability issue."Monsanto agreed to pay the costs associated with removing the canola back in 2005. However, the Schmeisers refused the offer because the company insisted the couple sign a release stating they would never talk about the terms of the agreement."That release form they sent us was a gag order," Mr. Schmeiser said. "We could never talk to anyone for the rest of our lives about what the terms of the settlement were. There was no way we were going to give up our freedom of speech to a corporation."
Several other Western Canadian farmers have agreed to sign Monsanto's standard release form, including 16 in 2007, according to a statement issued by the firm yesterday. The Schmeisers' deal does not stop them from talking about the terms of the settlement."Although we are pleased Mr. Schmeiser finally approached us and agreed to settlement terms, it is frustrating that he essentially accepted the same offer we put before him in 2005," Monsanto public affairs director Trish Jordan said. "This entire matter could have been resolved more than 2½ years ago and Mr. Schmeiser would have saved himself some legal costs."
The Schmeisers' saga began more than 10 years ago, when Monsanto sued them after plants grown from genetically modified canola seeds were found on the couple's farm near Bruno, Sask., about 90 kilometres east of Saskatoon.The company said the Schmeisers violated its patent on the seeds, which had been genetically modified to resist Monsanto-brand herbicide, and that the couple knowingly planted them without paying the technology fees. Monsanto's claim sought damages totalling $400,000.But the Schmeisers denied using the Monsanto seeds, arguing that the seeds blew onto their property from a nearby road or neighbouring farms.In 2004, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in favour of Monsanto, stating that plant genes and modified cells can be patented. Although the Schmeisers lost the case, the court ruled they did not have to pay damages.The following year, more of the genetically modified canola appeared on the Schmeisers' farm. They pulled it out themselves and sent Monsanto a bill for $660."This is a great victory for farmers all over the world," he said. "Now they have at least an opportunity to have some recourse on a corporation when they are contaminated."

Anonymous, I checked out the pads you left the link for. The Kawase pads are 35% dextrin, and you can't use them if you're allergic to shellfish. Maybe they work better, maybe they don't. This is my first experience with this type of product. I'd like to hear your results. ..........Matt

She mentioned "chemtrails" which is exactly what people should be looking for. You really need to read about that. Aerial spraying is taking place all over the world. There were many organic farms in the area around her home, and clearly, they can't be considered organic now.
The California residents in her neighborhood had a few theories about what the government was really trying to accomplish. The "disease factor"...sick people make money for the pharmaceutical companies. And, of course,... population control. I think it's a little of both. Interestingly enough, besides the 1,000's of people sickened by this harmless pesticide, she told me some disturbing facts.
The birth rates in sprayed counties have declined sharply.
Sperm counts are way down for men living in these areas.
The majority of babies born in that region are female.
I don't know...there's always a conspiracy theory, but this one is believable. Detox youself as much as possible. .......Matt

The adverse reactions associated with treatment with SLENTROL include vomiting, loose stools/diarrhea, lethargy, and anorexia. The safety of SLENTROL use in dogs has not been evaluated beyond 1 year. (taken from the slentrol website, the new diet drug for obese dogs and for owners who refuse to give there dogs exercise)
“We must attack postpartum depression on all fronts with education, screening, support, and research so that new moms can feel supported and safe rather than scared and alone.”(from Senator Robert Menendez on new legislation called the "Mother's Act" which recommends placing pregnant women on antidepressants to cure their postpartum depression.) For one mother who was drugged with antidepressants -- Amy Philo -- the drugs caused her to experience thoughts of violence against her own newborn babies. After taking antidepressants prescribed by her doctor, she had visions of killing them (and herself). Upon returning to her doctor, Amy was told to increase the dosage!
Fountain diet Coke is sweetened with a blend of aspartame and saccharin to assure maximum product quality. The safety of all ingredients used in the products of The Coca-Cola Company including aspartame has been established. (from Diet Coke.com) "We see this center as an important step in strengthening our innovation pipeline for beverages that contribute to well-being," said Dr. Rhona Applebaum, vice president, chief scientific and regulatory officer of The Coca-Cola Company. (The Coca-Cola Company has officially opened The Coca-Cola Research Center for Chinese Medicine at the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences in Beijing.)
"The government has made absolutely no statement about indicating that vaccines are the cause of autism, as this would be a complete mischaracterization of any of the science that we have at our disposal today," Dr. Julie L. Gerberding, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (The federal government continues to deny a link between vaccines and autism, but the U.S. Court of Federal Claims has ruled in favor of a child alleged to have regressed into autism as a result of vaccinations.)

"Through the millennia, humanity has more or less consciously known that all diseases ultimately have a psychic origin and it became a "scientific" asset firmly anchored in the inheritance of universal knowledge; it is only modern medicine that has turned our animated beings into a bag full of chemical formulas."

After 4-5 daily sodas and really no fruits or vegetables to speak of, your body will become very acidic. Persistent heartburn is a problem, but a glass of milk will put that fire out. Headaches are common at this stage, but you deal with it.
I was fortunate to have reoccurring hiccups which is cured by white gold. A spoonful of sugar really does make the medicine go down. It worked every time for my hiccups. I almost looked forward to it. What's worse...hiccups or diabetes. Who cares, as long as I can have my sugar fix.
At one point, my parents offered to buy me a ferret if I lost 10 lbs.(I was really into ferrets in 7th grade) I struggled to lose 2 lbs, and my dream of training a ferret to fetch candy bars melted away like a Hershey's Kiss on a hot sidewalk.
Follow this plan for at least 19years or until stretch marks are visible. You will develop food allergies, and enough candida yeast to bake 100 loaves of bread. Many more health conditions are possible,... it's up to you to make it happen. Success is only a refrigerator away.
I could go on for days, but even I'm losing interest. However, my story does have a happy ending. I will share that with you tomorrow. ......................Matt
