Informed Consent: Why mandatory vaccines are a blatant violation of medical ethics and fundamental human rights

doctor mean

Although my blog is mainly about addiction – especially iatrogenic addiction, it is also about iatrogenic disorders, diseases and death.  Iatrogenic, for those of you who have never heard the term, is defined as ‘physician caused’.  Iatrogenic addiction is now the #1 cause of preventable accidental death here in the US.  My hope is that you take the article below seriously and make changes in your life accordingly.  As thought of back in the day, these days are (unfortunately) days when doctors’ agendas have radically changed to be all about money –  not your health.

Have you ever thought about the violation of human rights and medical ethics found in the vaccine industry’s pushing of mandatory vaccines for everyone? The fact that the industry wants to inject you and your children without disclosing the risks of vaccines — which include permanent, serious damage as well as death — demonstrates just how tyrannical and evil the vaccine industry has become.

Remember: When any institution demands government coerce you into being injected with a risky substance that is extremely well documented to cause brain damage, seizures, permanent paralyzation or death, you are living in what can only be called a “medical police state.” The fact that these vaccine tyrants pursue this medical tyranny under the guise of “public health” only mirrors the way Adolf Hitler committed mass genocide in the name of creating a “master race.” In fact, Hitler’s Germany openly practiced government-mandated euthanasia of the elderly, informed or physically disabled. It was part of the state’s call for eliminating “inferior” genetics in the name of achievement “for the public good” — the same logic now invoked by vaccine tyrants in the United States. Read, “Mandatory vaccinations are assaults with a deadly weapon.”

America is waking up to tyranny of mandatory vaccines, and informed resistance is growing

Because of the totalitarian tactics of the violent vaccine industry, more Americans than ever before are waking up and recognizing the tyranny that’s now at their front door (especially in California with SB 277, a vaccine mandate law that violates women). Resistance is growing by the day as moms and dads, scientists and activists join forces to oppose medical tyranny and restore health freedom / medical choice for all.

In just the last few days, an excellent article by Paul A. Philips, author of the website NewParadigm.ws, explained why informed consent is such a fundamental human right. That article makes such a compelling argument for informed consent that I’m republishing it here to share its wisdom with everyone.

Informed consent: A vital and basic human right for our health freedom

by Paul A. Philips, NewParadigm.ws

In the modern-day, informed consent is one of the most pressing issues/concerns with regard to our health freedom. Informed consent is defined as having the right to make informed choices while knowing the risks involved when offered medical treatment. Further, whether it’s as a patient or a participating subject for medical research, individuals involved should not be coerced or criminalized for refusing the offered intervening medical treatment.

Informed consent was an established basic human right for our health freedom after a Doctors Trial in Nuremberg 1947. However, in recent times, there has been a disturbing growing trend where the medical ethical principle of informed consent has been violated.

There have been recent run-ins with parents refusing to have their children vaccinated, like the Michigan mom who received the threat of imprisonment. There has also been the threat of arrest: Take the case of a woman who was accosted by 2 law enforcement representatives at the school district of Claremont, California. She was interrogated by these law representatives (government goons) and threatened with arrest because her children weren’t vaccinated.

-This incident was related to the unconscionable SB277 law Introduced last year in California, demanding mandatory vaccination, which, in effect, has abolished the right to informed consent, denying parents medical choice for their children. Bear this in mind. How many more cases of this medical fascism is there to come? Not just California, this is part of a nationwide agenda and it won’t just stop at mandatory vaccination, but will go much further with other prohibitions.

Utilitarianism – the pseudo-ethic for “justifying” mass vaccination

Medical intervention through vaccination carries with it an uncalculated, undetermined risk: The vaccine introduced into the body of a healthy individual could cause serious injury or even death. -Which is why vaccination must always be a choice. For that matter, the same should apply to any medical intervention involving risk. Let your conscience be your guide.

The mass vaccination agenda comprises a ‘one size fits all’ medical intervention programme. It erroneously assumes that all humans are equal. It doesn’t take into account that humans across the many cultures and societies have different genetic compositions. While also as individuals, humans have a unique microbiome and epigenetic makeup through diet, lifestyle and environmental influences.

–All of which will make humans react differently to vaccines. Consequentially, some will develop severe adverse reactions to vaccines (or to other pharmaceuticals) when treated.

Indeed, followers of the alternative media will know that there has been much documentation to seriously challenge the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Then there’s the growing evidence to show that we’re better off without vaccines.

However, in spite of all this, the powers that be pushing the mass vaccination agenda see it from the utilitarianism point of view. Utilitarianism decrees expendability: It is based on the idea that in a cause for the ‘greater good’ the minority are expendable. Hence the vaccine meme ‘the benefits significantly outweigh the risks. ‘-Well, try telling that to a mother who just lost her child through a vaccine. Or to parents whose child has been crippled after a vaccination and can’t get damage compensation because the vaccine manufacturer, the pharmaceutical company is not legally obligated to pay out…

Whether a vaccine damages one in ten thousand or 1 in ten million children or a single child, that makes authorities morally obligated to not make vaccinations compulsory for all.

Thus, utilitarianism – the awful pseudo-ethic for “justifying” mass vaccination as public health law and policy needs to be banished. An empathy-based compassionate ethic should be applied instead:  One that approaches public health law and policy that respects our right to autonomy, informed consent and health freedom.

Vaccines and population reduction

To add to all this, there has been recent bombshell scientific evidence revealing the deployment of secret chemical weapons of mass sterilization through vaccines. In conjunction with the World Health Organization, evidence suggests that vaccines are being administered to young African women in Kenya to effectively cause a population reduction: Deceived into thinking it’s for their own good and without informed consent these women have no idea that they are being targeted for sterilization through accepting these vaccines containing sterilization chemicals.

Water fluoridation

After our federal government telling us for years that it’s for our own good, recent evidence reveals that adding fluoride to public water supplies causes a whole catalogue of health-damaging effects. This includes hypothyroidism; a hormone imbalance resulting in tiredness, fatigue, depression and obesity. It can also cause a number of cancers, skeletal fluoridosis and lowers IQ…

Not disclosing this information to the public or patients not only goes against the informed consent ethic but should also lead to holding a number of individuals criminally accountable for overseeing the adding of fluoride to public water supplies.

Smartmeters and radiation

Smartmeters are installed in homes without informed consent: Home owners are not being told about the risks linked to the radiation coming from the smartmeters and how it can cause harm to the nervous system. -Yet another example to show the length and breath to which there is an absence of informed consent.

Finally – to reiterate

As already mentioned, in all cases, an empathy-based compassionate ethic should be applied where appropriate.  One that approaches public health law and policy that respects our right to autonomy, informed consent and health freedom.

Due to Modern Medicine: You Are Being Duped, Doped & Dying in America

Heroin & Cocaine VS Rx Drugs From Your Doctor. Same or Different?

Today, I want to show you how accepting those dangerous prescriptions from your doctor is causing you to be equal to a heroin/cocaine abuser. Once you know that your doctor is giving you dangerous medications, it is up to you to make a change in your life or suffer torment, withdrawal, organ failure, seizures, stroke, heart attack and an early death.

We all know that when a person struts down to his or her drug dealer, we know that they’re willingly, knowingly and purposely after a high and are bound and determined to get it.  We also know that they are fully aware that if they get caught using, they will spend some time in  jail. Another known factor is that – most of the time – people sell their bodies in order to get that high because, without it, they will get violently sick and possibly die from withdrawal.  Another given is that they are knowingly risking their lives every single time they use.  Overdose, as everyone knows, is all too common.

So, what about Rx drugs that your doctor gives you?

  • More people die from doctors’ prescription drugs than do people using Heroin and Cocaine combined.
  • Prescription drugs such as Opiates, Benzodiazepines, Hypnotics (sleeping pills) and Stimulants (just to name a few categories) should NEVER be prescribed for more than 3 days – if at all. Antidepressants, antipsychotics and other psychotropic drugs should NEVER be prescribed by anyone other than a board certified psychiatrist; even then, you must consider whether or not this person needs to be hospitalized and evaluated in a mental health unit as these drugs cause suicidal and homicidal ideations.
  • Doctors that offer you these drugs, outside of a hospital facility, and for more than 3 days, are basically drug dealers who wear white coats.

Do the patients who use Rx drugs seek after the same high as street drug users do?

  • Absolutely YES!  The addictive Rx drugs given to you by your doctor do not keep their intensity. In other words, the dose you take today will not have the same effect on you when you continue to take it for 2 weeks. That means that your doctor will most likely increase the dose or add another drug to potentiate (make stronger) it’s effect.  As a matter of fact, many doctors, in order to keep you addicted, will add certain specific other drugs that will give give their patients the equivalent of a very potent ‘heroin high’.
  • Dosages are raised by doctors or additional drugs are added because every few weeks, the effect and euphoria (or high) of these drugs dissipates.  Keep in mind that these drugs, while becoming less effective, are stored in the body’s vital organs. This is the reason people ‘accidentally’ overdose and never see it coming.

Is it possible that Rx drug users could end up doing prison time or have to sell their bodies?

  • Yes!  It happens every day of the week. Why, you ask?  The reason is that laws are getting tighter and doctors are being squeezed not to prescribe these types of drugs… especially Opiate painkillers.  These days they can face professional discipline for misconduct, malpractice suits for iatrogenic addiction and death, and criminal criminal charges. So, what do the people do who are on these drugs and now suffer withdrawal? They hit the streets and buy heroin!  Heroin is an opiate. Whether they are 12 or 90, they will start shooting up because the withdrawal is unbearable and they don’t want to be hospitalized for 14 days to detox. As we know, this is illegal.  Being illegal, these people who have graduated from pills to heroin are now conducting themselves as other heroin abusers do, so they easily can and do end up with criminal charges.

What about withdrawal and accidental overdose?  My doctor would never put me on drugs that would cause harm to me!

  • Think again, my friends!  Remember that nasty thing called ‘GREED’?  Greed causes those who have the love of money to do crazy things.  Just because some people have an MD, DO, PA, or NP after their names doesn’t mean they don’t or can’t love money!  People who love money look for ways to make that money in a cushy, easy way.  What’s easier than addicting patients to drugs?  State laws mandate that these patients MUST come into the medical office monthly in order to get more pills. Insurances pay upward of $880 per 5 minute visit for the patient to get a new Rx. Multiply that by the average number of patients doctors have in the US per month.  I’m not going to figure out the statistics for you… you can google that if you want; however, what I will tell you is that in 2012 (the most recent statistics available form the CDC), 259,000,000 (million) prescriptions were written for just Opioids alone!!!!!!!!!  You do the math on how lucrative it is for doctors to prescribe these drugs and how they only have to spend 5 minutes with a patient to make upwards of $880.00 per month per patient. Don’t you wonder how your monster doctor affords all of those luxury vacations… new cars… huge houses (and multiple homes)… designer clothes… private schools… etc? I guess you’ve been reading my words here because you guessed it… it’s by prescribing addictive and mind altering drugs!  Voila!  One American dies every 19 minutes here in the US from a prescription overdose from addictive drugs prescribed by their doctor.  IATROGENIC DEATH is now the #1 cause of accidental death in America.  To me, it’s no accident when doctors know what these drugs do and prescribe them anyway. Even after a patient has experienced a massive overdose, their doctor will prescribe them to that same patient again when they get home from the hospital. That’s egregious since the chance of overdose is GREATER after an overdose has already occurred. For many, it only takes just one pill!!!

Motto of my post today?  NEVER TRUST YOUR DOCTOR!  

  • Do the research – Look up the drugs yourself and ask your pharmacist for a package insert so that you can see all facts about the drugs.
  • ask questions of pharmacists, naturopaths, google ‘dangers of (name of drug)’ and see what others have experienced and what remains hidden from patients.
  • allow a window of time before accepting any Rx or procedure in order to get other opinions from doctors who are naturopaths.
  • *******NEVER start with these drugs and you’ll never get addicted, you’ll never get dead before your time, and you’ll never suffer the evil ravages of taking them.
  • Look for an MD or DO who is a Naturopath… seek natural alternatives.
  • For pain, google LDN… an awesome way to control pain, many diseases and helps you sleep.  It doesn’t ’cause’ anything in your body… it enables your body to heal itself.

Vaccine Industry Defends Use of “Chemical Weapons” on Defenseless U.S. Children

There are far more vaccine-damaged children in America than chemical weapons-damaged children in Syria

By now, you are surely aware that the U.S. war machine, under President Donald J. Trump, has launched cruise missiles against the Syrian government. The emotionally-charged justification for all this is that “beautiful babies” were being killed by chemical weapons. While the pro-war factions of the establishment elite are celebrating the missile strike, virtually the entire independent media is convinced that the “chemical attack” narrative is little more than a convenient false flag to justify “regime replacement” activities desired by America’s deep state. Even Ron Paul and Paul Craig Roberts have both asserted this.

President Trump’s explanation for the attack included these words:

Assad choked out the lives of innocent men, women and children. It was a slow and brutal death for so many. Even beautiful babies were cruelly murdered in this very barbaric attack. No child of god should ever suffer such horror.

If you replace the word “Assad” with “CDC” or “the vaccine industry,” it all makes even more sense. Vastly higher numbers of children right here in America have been “cruelly murdered” in the “barbaric attack” of toxic vaccines than have ever been killed by chemical weapons in Syria.

I agree with the President that “No child of God should ever suffer such horror,” but I wonder when this President will start working to stop the chemical assault on America’s children that’s being waged every day by the vaccine industry.

Mercury in vaccines is a state-sponsored CHEMICAL WEAPON that’s used against America’s children every day

No chemical weapon should ever be deployed against any child: Not VX Nerve Gas, not Sarin Gas and not toxic, brain-damaging mercury. The destruction of biological tissue with devastating effect is accomplished by all three of those substances (and many more, including glyphosate herbicide). Yet mercury is the only chemical weapon that’s deliberately INJECTED into children with devastating effect. You might even call mercury a “biological cruise missile” attack on brain tissue.

On the science side, there’s no question whatsoever that mercury is extremely toxic to human neurology. Even the CDC’s own research has conclusively proven that mercury in vaccines is toxic to children. As I wrote in a Natural News article earlier this year, entitled Health Ranger exposes chemical violence of mercury vaccines: The “war on children” must be stopped:

The CDC is a criminal operation that preys upon innocent children using fraudulent science. The “Vaccine Holocaust,” as it is sometimes called, is a deliberate and widespread assault on children using chemical violence. This war on children must be brought to an end in the name of compassion, sanity and legitimate science (not the fraudulent corporate science pushed by vaccine companies and the corrupt CDC).

Right now, mercury is still used in vaccines given to children and expectant mothers in the United States. This practice is barbaric, highly unethical and stands in horrific opposition to all the known science on the neurotoxicity of mercury. Those engaged in the continued pushing of mercury vaccines onto children are knowingly taking part in the most gruesome and dishonest medical science cover-up in the history of our world. It is time that parents, citizens, independent scientists and compassionate protectors of life took a stand against the child poisoners who are pushing mercury vaccines that cause permanent neurological disorders in children (including autism in some children).

This is why I continue to remind America that Vaccine Injury Denialism is the denial of fundamental human dignity.

This is Your Warning: Health Care Workers Forced To Take Vaccines or Get Fired – General Population Next?

In a recent video uploaded to Facebook, Lauren Atkinson issues a dire warning to Americans, get vaccinated or get fired.

Lauren states that health care workers are the guinea pigs in a larger scheme, vaccinating the whole of America. The video has rapidly gone viral on social media, and rightly so.

Lauren describes within the video of two types of flu shots being administered, and they are FLUBLOCK and FLUAD.

Lauren also states that there is no such thing as a safe flu vaccine, all while describing that they do not work, and cannot operate because the influenza virus is “sloppy.”

Lauren is right; there is a scheme ongoing that entails the government of the United States vaccinating every single person in America, starting with both children and health care workers.

What say you reader, is the general population next?

Go ahead… click, read and weep the facts – direct from Big Pharma – about flublock and fluad.

Allergens in Vaccines Are Causing Life-Threatening Food Allergies

Below is a great article for you to read.  Amp yourself up with information about what Big Med, Big Pharma and Big Agra are trying to do to us. The more info you get, the less likely you are to be victimized.

by Claire Dwoskin

Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute 

It would probably surprise few people to hear that food allergies are increasingly common in U.S. children and around the world. According to one public health website, food allergies in children aged 0-17 in the U.S. increased by 50% from 1997 to 2011.

Although food allergies are now so widespread as to have become almost normalized, it is important to realize that millions of American children and adults suffer from severe rapid-onset allergic reactions that can be life-threatening. Foods represent the most common cause of anaphylaxis among children and adolescents. The United Kingdom has witnessed a 700% increase in hospital admissions for anaphylaxis and a 500% increase in admissions for food allergy since 1990.

The question that few are asking is why life-threatening food allergies have become so alarmingly pervasive. A 2015 open access case report by Vinu Arumugham in the Journal of Developing Drugs, entitled “Evidence that Food Proteins in Vaccines Cause the Development of Food Allergies and Its Implications for Vaccine Policy,” persuasively argues that allergens in vaccines—and specifically food proteins—may be the elephant in the room.

Historical Perspective

As Arumugham points out, scientists have known for over 100 years that injecting proteins into humans or animals causes immune system sensitization to those proteins. And, since the 1940s, researchers have confirmed that food proteins in vaccines can induce allergy in vaccine recipients. Arumugham is not the first to bring the vaccine-allergy link to the public’s attention. Heather Fraser makes a powerful case for the role of vaccines in precipitating peanut allergies in her 2011 book, The Peanut Allergy Epidemic: What’s Causing It and How to Stop It. In that fascinating book, Fraser notes that mass allergic phenomena (called “serum sickness” at the time) first emerged at the close of the nineteenth century in tandem with mass vaccination.

Allergens in Vaccines

What food proteins are found in vaccines? The list includes ovalbumin, casein, gelatin, and soy. As Arumugham ascertained, however, synthetic vaccine ingredients such as polysorbate 80 and sorbitol also are sourced from food items, including coconut, palm, sunflower, wheat, and corn. Arumugham observes that it is likely impossible to fully eliminate residual allergen proteins deriving from these sources. Moreover, it takes very low-level exposure to food proteins to cause allergic sensitization.

Synergy with aluminum-based adjuvants

A more subtle and troubling point is that the aluminum adjuvants contained in many vaccines augment the food proteins’ immunogenicity (a substance’s ability to provoke an immune response). When numerous food proteins and adjuvants get injected in one sitting, as is the case when multiple shots are administered simultaneously, the probability of sensitization greatly increases.

Implications

The Institute of Medicine admits that food proteins in vaccines “occasionally induce…sensitization…and subsequent hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis.” Despite this knowledge, the allergen content in vaccines is entirely unregulated. No safe level or limits have ever been established or enforced for the allergens contained in vaccines.

In this context, it is hard to disagree with Arumugham’s suggested solutions. The most obvious response—one that would likely alleviate much suffering—is to remove food proteins and aluminum compounds from vaccines as soon as possible. To decrease the odds of allergic sensitization, it also makes sense to adopt the precaution of decelerating the vaccine schedule and administering one vaccine at a time. In the interim, the link between vaccines and food allergies needs to be openly discussed so that the public can be more fully informed about vaccine risks.

Medical Care is now the Number 1 Cause of Death in the US

by Dr. Mercola

The latest data on the leading causes of deathi in the United States has been released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).The report, which is based on 2010 data, lists the 10 leading causes of death as follows:

  1. Diseases of the heart
  2. Cancer
  3. Chronic lower respiratory diseases
  4. Cerebrovascular diseases (stroke)
  5. Accidents (unintentional injuries)
  6. Alzheimer’s disease
  7. Diabetes mellitus
  8. Nephritis, nephritic syndrome and nephrosis (kidney disease)
  9. Influenza and pneumonia
  10. Intentional self-harm (suicide)

In an analysis, 24/7 Wall St. determined that the costs to the economy for these top 10 causes, including not only direct medical care but also the indirect loss of productivity, amounts to a whopping $1.1 trillion!

However, there is one leading cause of death that was left off of this list, and when that is factored in the costs to the economy, and the death toll itself, is actually even higher.

The CDC Left Conventional Medical Care Off of Their Death List — It Should be #1

Over a decade ago, Professor Bruce Pomerance of the University of Toronto concluded that properly prescribed and correctly taken pharmaceutical drugs were the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S. More recently, an article authored in two parts by Gary Null, PhD, Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, Martin Feldman, MD, Debora Rasio, MD, and Dorothy Smith, PhD, describes in excruciating detail how the modern conventional American medical system has bumbled its way into becoming the leading cause of death and injury in the United States.

From medical errors to adverse drug reactions to unnecessary procedures, heart disease, cancer deaths and infant mortality, the authors took statistics straight from the most respected medical and scientific journals and investigative reports by the Institutes of Medicine (IOM), and showed that on the whole, American medicine caused more harm than good.

In 2010 (the same year from which the CDC data came), years after the original article was written, an analysis in theNew England Journal of Medicineii piqued my interest – as the researchers found that, despite efforts to improve patient safety in the past few years, the health care system hasn’t changed much at all.

Instead, 18 percent of patients were harmed by medical care (some repeatedly) and over 63 percent of the injuries could have been prevented. In nearly 2.5 percent of these cases, the problems caused or contributed to a person’s death. In another 3 percent, patients suffered from permanent injury, while over 8 percent experienced life-threatening issues, such as severe bleeding during surgery.

In all there were over 25 injuries per 100 admissions! In my update to the original Death by Medicine article, you can get an idea of just how deadly the conventional medical care system actually is:

  • In a June 2010 report in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, study authors said that in looking over recordsiii that spanned from 1976 to 2006 (the most recent year available) they found that, of 62 million death certificates, almost a quarter-million deaths were coded as having occurred in a hospital setting due to medication errors.
  • An estimated 450,000 preventable medication-related adverse events occur in the U.S. every year.
  • The costs of adverse drug reactionsiv to society are more than $136 billion annually — greater than the total cost of cardiovascular or diabetic care.
  • Adverse drug reactions cause injuries or death in 1 of 5 hospital patients.
  • The reason there are so many adverse drug eventsv in the U.S. is because so many drugs are used and prescribed – and many patients receive multiple prescriptions at varying strengths, some of which may counteract each other or cause more severe reactions when combined.

How Many Deaths by Medicine are Disguised as Other Causes?

Another issue is just how many “accidents” or “suicides” are actually the result of accidental drug overdoses. Prescription drugs are now killing far more people than illegal drugs, and while most major causes of preventable deaths are declining, those from prescription drug use are increasing — and this is according to the CDC’s own datavi.

In 2009, there were nearly 4.6 million drug-related visitsvii to U.S. emergency rooms nationwide, with more than half due to adverse reactions to prescription medications – most of which were being taken exactly as prescribedviii.

Further, between 2001 and 2008, there was a 36 percent increase in hospital admissionsix, and a 28 percent increase in emergency room visits, among children 5 and younger who had accidentally ingested medication. ER visits for ingestion of prescription opioid painkillers, such as Oxycodone, increased 101 percent! So it is unclear how many deaths from accidental drug overdose are classified as accidents or suicides.

The 9th and 11th Top Killers Might Also be Linked to Medical Care

The 11th leading cause of death according to the CDC is septicemia (sometimes called blood poisoning), which is bacteria in your bloodstream that is often caused by an infection in your body — an infection that is often acquired in the hospital! A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicinex showed that sepsis and pneumonia caused by hospital-acquired infections killed 48,000 patients and ramped up health care costs by over $8 billion in 2006. The study also found that 20 percent of people who developed sepsis died; 11 percent of those who developed pneumonia died.

Pneumonia is the 9th leading cause of death, and in some cases may again be related to the high risk of acquiring an infection should you enter the hospital.

A different study in 2006 showed that “central-line-associated” bloodstream infectionsxi caused by catheters placed directly into veins resulted in a $26,839 loss for each patient that came down with this type of hospital-acquired infection. This same study estimated that 2 million people come down with hospital-acquired infections of any type in every year, and that approximately 100,000 die from those infections. Despite their high death toll, hospital-acquired infections make no appearance in the CDC’s report.

Most of the Leading Causes of Death are Preventable

Most chronic diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, are largely preventable with simple lifestyle changes. Even infectious diseases like the flu can often be warded off by a healthy way of life.

Imagine the lowered death toll, not to mention costs to the economy, if more people decided to take control of their health … heart disease and cancer alone accounted for 47 percent of deaths in the United States in 2010, and there are many strategies you can implement to lower your risk of these diseases … and most of the leading causes of death in the United States.

The added bonus to this is that the healthier you are, the less you will need to rely on conventional medical care, which is a leading cause of death. So what does a “healthy lifestyle” entail?

  • Proper Food Choices

For a comprehensive guide on which foods to eat and which to avoid, see my nutrition plan. Generally speaking, you should be looking to focus your diet on whole, unprocessed foods (vegetables, meats, raw dairy, nuts, and so forth) that come from healthy, sustainable, local sources, such as a small organic farm not far from your home.

For the best nutrition and health benefits, you will want to eat a good portion of your food raw. Personally, I aim to eat about 80-85 percent of my food raw, including raw eggs and humanely raised organic animal products that have not been raised on a CAFO (confined animal feeding operation).

Nearly as important as knowing which foods to eat more of is knowing which foods to avoid, and topping the list is fructose. Sugar, and fructose in particular, acts as a toxin in and of itself, and as such drive multiple disease processes in your body, not the least of which is insulin resistance, a major cause of accelerated aging.

  • Comprehensive Exercise Program, including High-Intensity Exercise like Peak Fitness

Even if you’re eating the healthiest diet in the world, you still need to exercise to reach the highest levels of health, and you need to be exercising effectively, which means including not only core-strengthening exercises, strength training, and stretching but also high-intensity activities into your rotation. High-intensity interval-type training boosts human growth hormone (HGH) production, which is essential for optimal health, strength and vigor. I’ve discussed the importance of Peak Fitness for your health on numerous occasions, so for more information, please review this previous article.

  • Stress Reduction and Positive Thinking

You cannot be optimally healthy if you avoid addressing the emotional component of your health and longevity, as your emotional state plays a role in nearly every physical disease — from heart disease and depression, to arthritis and cancer. Effective coping mechanisms are a major longevity-promoting factor in part because stress has a direct impact on inflammation, which in turn underlies many of the chronic diseases that kill people prematurely every day. Meditation, prayer, social support and exercise are all viable options that can help you maintain emotional and mental equilibrium.

  • Proper Sun Exposure to Optimize Vitamin D

We have long known that it is best to get your vitamin D from sun exposure, and if at all possible, I strongly urge you to make sure you’re getting out in the sun on a daily basis. Vitamin D plays an important role in preventing numerous illnesses ranging from cancer to the flu.

The important factor when it comes to vitamin D is your serum level, which should ideally be between 50-70 ng/ml year-round. Sun exposure or a safe tanning bed is the preferred method for optimizing vitamin D levels, but a vitamin D3 supplement can be used as a last resort. Most adults need about 8,000 IU’s of vitamin D a day to achieve serum levels above 40 ng/ml, which is still just below the minimum recommended serum level of 50 ng/ml.

  • High Quality Animal-Based Omega-3 Fats

Animal-based omega-3 fat like krill oil is a strong factor in helping people live longer, and many experts believe that it is likely the predominant reason why the Japanese are the longest lived race on the planet.

  • Avoid as Many Chemicals, Toxins, and Pollutants as Possible

This includes tossing out your toxic household cleaners, soaps, personal hygiene products, air fresheners, bug sprays, lawn pesticides, and insecticides, just to name a few, and replacing them with non-toxic alternatives.
