So how does a mother feel when her baby is dead from vaccines?


So how does a mother feel when her baby is dead from vaccines and all
she hears from doctors, the government and media is that vaccines are
safe and effective?

Vaccination killed him, I have no doubt. If he crawled under  the sink and drank the same poisonous concoction of heavy metals, formaldehyde, foreign proteins, multiple viruses and a host of other toxins, the emergency room would have called it poisoning. Because it was injected into his body, it’s  called ’a coincidence’! Funny about that, and I have since met many parents with  similar stories.  This is my journey….

It’s almost summer and cellulite is ruining my life” – new calculator lets women decide


Free and easy to use on-line Cellulite Calculator allows women to decide just how much cellulite affects their lives.

With summer upon us, and shorter hem-lines and beachwear being the required dress, it is also a time of extreme frustration for many women.

The “orange peel” dimpling appearance commonly known as cellulite, which affects up to 90% of adult females, is not just a physical problem, but for many women it is also an emotional problem. While many in the medical profession may consider cellulite as insignificant, for many women it is an extremely uncomfortable condition, affecting many different areas of their lives, including choice of everyday clothing, beachwear and even relationships.

The search term “Cellulite” generates a combined total of over 30 million internet queries each year, between Google, Bing, Yahoo and secondary search engines, and women are overloaded with marketing campaigns, promoting the latest “miracle cream or lotion” in the ongoing battle against cellulite.

Kevin Laverick, Marketing Manager at Totally U International, commented: “With research group Mintel finding that British women alone spend almost $100 million every year on supposedly ‘dimple destroying’ products, it is estimated that annual global spending on cellulite products comfortably exceeds several billion dollars, and yet none of these products to date have produced any statistically significant long term improvements.

“Cellulite is in fact a medical problem, and not a cosmetic problem and with a new generation of salon/clinic treatments utilising shock waves, laser, radio frequency and ultrasound, there have been some promising results.”

Many women are unsure how much cellulite really affects their overall lifestyle, so remain vulnerable to slick marketing campaigns for cellulite products that focus on their uncertainty.  Hope is at hand with this free online calculator, which can offer each individual an accurate response to their particular level of comfort or discomfort with cellulite, and then receive information on local outlets that offer the latest technology.

Log on to www.mycellulitescore.com  (Patent Pending) to complete a 2 minute questionnaire and receive your individual results.

www.mycellulitescore.com  is designed to accommodate a world-wide database, with salons and clinics that offer a new generation of cellulite treatments.  Salons are welcome to apply to add their details to the database.

Shock waves utilised in the succesful treatment of diabetic gangrene


A case study was performed with a 75-year-old male patient with diabetic gangrene of both feet facing the prospect of imminent amputation. At the end of the treatment the necrotic areas vanished. By then the pain score decreased to 2 and no further pain medication was needed.

Australia Addicted to Prescription drugs


Totally U announces Free Online Calculator for instant Toxin Check.

 

Recent  government figures reveal a staggering increase in annual medical prescriptions from 180 million in 1996 to 262 million in 2008 representing a 46% growth in the period, and a subsequent blow out on health care costs.

In the latest figures from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, the annual cost of healthcare to the Australian Government was $103 Billion and representing 9.1% of GDP

The recent findings of rocket  fuel chemical in Infant formula  Full article  comes as no surprise to Totally U International as without exception, every westernised individual, now has in his or her tissues, 300-500 known toxins that were not in existence before 1940. Since those early years, the chemical revolution has continued, without considering the long-term affects the chemicals may have on one’s quality of life or the environment.

All degenerative diseases are on the rise, and it seems in lock-step with increasing toxin exposure. The number of new cancer cases more than doubled between 1982 and 2007. In 1982, 47,350 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in Australia compared with 108,368 cases in 2007

Kevin Laverick of Totally U international says “it is quite alarming at how the vast majority of us are blissfully unaware of the amount of toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis and the significant effect it is having on our health and drug dependency. The Australian public seem to accept it as the norm,   to rely on an average of 12 prescriptions per year, which address the symptoms of our ailments but not the actual cause. Increased toxin exposure can also be directly linked to Australia’s obesity problem as toxic overload can slow the metabolism and lead to weight gain”

“Disease is regularly occurring at younger ages, Infants and children are contracting catastrophic illnesses at increasing rates. In the last 20 years, in spite of billions of dollars spent on research, cancer has moved from the number 8 killer in the developed world to the number 2 killer. In 1900, 5% of the westernised population died of heart disease, cancer, or diabetes. Today, 95% of us will die from any combination of these causes. Without a doubt Toxins are slowly killing all of us, but there is a dearth of information on the significant growth in toxin exposure.”

In an effort to create more public awareness of damaging toxins we have developed an easy to use on line calculator, which can let each individual ascertain their level of toxicity with a short 2 minute questionnaire.   Visit   www.mytoxinlevel.com (Patent Pending)

We often attribute various ailments to bugs and viruses,  including unaccountable aches and pains in the joints, allergies, skin rashes and spots, backache, bad breath/body odour, depression, frequent mood swings, poor concentration, lack of energy, nausea, furred tongue, regular headaches/migraines, and susceptibility to colds and infections.

In reality  most of these ailments are due to an overload of toxins, seriously compromising the bodies mechanism to expel these toxins which are discharged from the body by the liver, kidneys, lymphatics, colon, lungs and skin. As more and more toxins accumulate in your system, they place severe stress on these organs of elimination. With continued accumulation, the liver, kidneys, and other organs may begin to malfunction, causing a weakening of the immune system. The endocrine glands no longer secrete the proper amounts of hormones into the bloodstream, metabolism slows, producing a hospitable environment for illness and weight gain.

A little known fact is that although toxins do not weigh anything, they do take up space and the more toxins in our body the more fat cells enlarge to store them.

Toxins are everywhere, and are absorbed into our body through the largest living organ (the skin), as well as inhaled and digested. This over exposure to toxins can seriously interfere with the normal bodily functions.

When adding the effects of our processed food diet, the result is that we have never been more exposed to toxins and therefore there has never been a greater need to assist the body’s attempts to heal and cleanse it.

Prevention is better than cure.

The Australian Private health care industry generates $12 billion dollars of annual income and premiums are on average $1000 per annum with typically a $500 excess. Average individual out of pocket expenses   are $838 and there is an unquantifiable cost in lost work days.

A regular detoxification routine, could be achieved at a fraction of these costs, and may prevent onset of many illnesses, some of which are terminal.

Some of the external toxins that we are exposed to come from:

  • Ordinary household water which contains heavy metals, industrial and agricultural chemical sand chlorine, which are absorbed by drinking, showering or bathing.
  • Processed food containing pesticides, herbicides, synthetic additives, and antibiotics, together with growth hormones in meat.
  • Electromagnetic pollution from electronic gadgets which populate every home.
  • The never ending list of shampoos, hairsprays, furniture treatments, skin creams, deodorants, air fresheners and cleaning agents.

These are the least obvious source of toxins, and of course everyone is aware of industrial and car fumes, together with the deadly tobacco smoke.

Many of the earlier listed ailments are due to the fact that the rate at which toxins are absorbed is greater than the rate of removal and they then accumulate in different parts of the body. As symptoms of toxicity start to show then fat cells are enlarged in order to accommodate them. This situation develops much faster in smokers and heavy drinkers.

A detox is simply a way to help the body to get rid of the toxins so that it can begin healing itself. It will leave you feeling more alert, with more energy, able to breathe easier, your skin will be clearer and you will feel happier and more able to deal with life in general. Irritating health problems (e.g. allergies, skin rashes) may completely disappear and you will suddenly remember what it is like to be healthy again!

Completed questionnaires, will provide individual toxin scores and also a list of outlets in the area providing detoxifying treatments.

Scientists find Rocket Fuel Chemical in Infant Formula


Researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have reported that 15 brands of powdered infant formula are contaminated with perchlorate, a rocket fuel component detected in drinking water in 28 states and territories. The two most contaminated brands, made from cow’s milk, accounted for 87 percent of the U.S. powdered formula market in 2000, the scientists said. The CDC scientists did not identify the formula brands they tested. The little-noticed CDC findings, published in the March 2009 edition of the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology, raise new concerns about perchlorate pollution, a legacy of Cold War rocket and missile tests. Studies have established that the chemical is a potent thyroid toxin that may interfere with fetal and infant brain development (Kirk 2006). The CDC team warned that mixing perchlorate-tainted formula powder with tap water containing “even minimal amounts” of the chemical could boost the resulting mixture’s toxin content above the level the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers safe. Many scientists contend that the EPA “safe” level is too high to protect public health. “Safe” level too high The risk to infants being fed cow’s milk-based formula may be even greater than the CDC assessment suggests. A CDC study in 2006 found that trace perchlorate exposure considerably below the EPA’s “safe” level (0.7 micrograms of perchlorate per kilogram of body weight per day, called the reference dose, or RfD) altered women’s thyroid hormone levels (Blount et al 2006a). Based on this study, the Environmental Working Group has recommended that EPA promptly set a legally enforceable upper limit on perchlorate contamination in drinking water, consistent with the latest science on perchlorate’s toxic effects. Obama EPA considering action At her January 14 confirmation hearing, EPA administrator Lisa Jackson promised California Senator Barbara Boxer, whose state has borne the brunt of perchlorate contamination from old launch sites and aerospace facilities, that she would act “immediately” to reduce perchlorate contamination in drinking water in order to protect children and pregnant women. Since her confirmation, however, Jackson and EPA have not made public a plan of action. Pentagon lobbied Bush administration Last fall, the Bush administration’s EPA leadership touched off a major furor by declaring that perchlorate posed no threat to most Americans and did not need to be regulated as a drinking water pollutant. The decision was widely regarded as a major victory for the Pentagon and defense and aerospace contractors reluctant to pay clean-up costs that could mount into the hundreds of millions of dollars. EPA’s move triggered protests from consumers, lawmakers, scientists and medical experts – among them, two of the agency’s prestigious outside science advisory panels. Melanie A. Marty, a senior career EPA official and chair of EPA’s Children’s Health Protection Advisory Committee, declared that the agency’s refusal to regulate perchlorate in drinking water exposed some infants to “the life-long consequences of impaired brain development.” On January 8, EPA issued a non-binding “health advisory” on perchlorate and asked the National Academy of Sciences to review the issue. EWG dismissed EPA’s action as “nothing more than an effort to dodge the issue and buy time for the defense, aerospace and chemical industries.” Years of federal inaction have prompted some states to set their own mandatory limits for perchlorate in drinking water: California, at 6 ppb and Massachusetts at 2 ppb. While recent scientific research has shown these standards too weak to protect public health adequately, they are far more stringent than EPA’s action in January. Studies find pollution in people, food Concern about perchlorate pollution has intensified as a series of studies have found perchlorate in the urine of every American tested by the CDC and in breast milk (Blount et al 2006b, Pearce et al 2007). In 2008, an EWG analysis found that toddlers were especially vulnerable to perchlorate exposure from contaminated food. Toddlers, who are growing rapidly, consume large amounts of food daily, relative to their size. Moreover, those who live in places like California and Texas, where high perchlorate levels have been measured in some drinking water supplies, are doubly exposed to perchlorate contamination. EWG’s analysis was based on 2008 federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) tests that found almost 75 percent of food and beverage samples tainted with perchlorate, possibly from contaminated irrigation water (Murray et al 2008). CDC finds perchlorate in 15 formula brands The new CDC study is the first to examine perchlorate exposure of infants fed powdered formula reconstituted with contaminated drinking water. The CDC team tested 15 brands of powdered infant formula in four categories: cow milk-based with lactose, cow milk-based lactose-free, soy-based and elemental. “Perchlorate was found in all brands and types of infant formula tested,” the scientists said. The worst perchlorate contamination was found in formula based on cow’s milk with lactose. The CDC team said that combining cow’s milk/lactose formula with water containing perchlorate at just 4 parts per billion (ppb) could cause 54 percent of infants consuming the mix to exceed EPA’s “safe” level. The number of babies exposed to unsafe levels of perchlorate would rise if, as EWG and many other science and health advocates argue, the EPA “safe” level were lowered to reflect recent scientific studies. Formula required to contain iodine While these findings are of concern, the CDC scientists also note that FDA requires infant formula to be supplemented with iodine, a nutrient that can counteract the negative effects of perchlorate on the thyroid gland. The range of required iodine concentrations in formula is between 5 and 75 micrograms per 100kcal of energy. Iodine supplements at higher levels may offer some protection from the toxic effects of perchlorate. But the CDC scientists estimate that those brands that contain only the minimum iodine concentration of 5 micrograms would leave infants iodine-deficient and thus more vulnerable to the toxic effects of perchlorate. A scenario in which formula contained 40 micrograms of iodine (per 100kcal of energy) would offer more protection for infants, but the scientists stress that even adequate iodine intake among formula-fed infants is not guaranteed to prevent “perchlorate-induced thyroid dysfunction.” Strict drinking water regulation of perchlorate needed This study represents perhaps the strongest evidence to date supporting the need for a legally enforceable safe drinking water level that protects pregnant women, infants and others who are most vulnerable to the effects of this harmful chemical. The new Obama administration leadership at EPA can and should take steps to reduce infants’ exposures to perchlorate pollution in tap water.

Gold Coast Property Boom Just Months Away?


Some Gold Coast Suburbs could see 200 % price appreciation.

While the Gold Coast Property market has been hit harder than most,and is dinner table conversation in Sydney and Melbourne, it is really old news amongst Gold Coast homeowners as the fall in Gold Coast premium properties started nearly 2 and a half years ago but went widely unreported on a national basis. The falls on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts were more exaggerated, due to the number of second or holiday homes, which were deemed surplus to requirements as the GFC started to bite.
Prices in the highest prestige homes are down 50% from their highs, and as we all know from historical property cycles the previous peak is always bettered at the top of the next cycle, with some lucky buyers going to see 100% gains even when the previous peak is attained, let alone the gains from a new peak.

Now a horizon that was once littered with tower cranes is virtually blemish free as speculators have left the market.

Housing corrections of this nature rarely last more than 3 years and we could be about to see “the worm turning”.

Lets face it the Gold and Sunshine Coast’s are great places to live with winter temperatures the envy of most of the developed world, and as supply is drying up it will soon be overtaken by demand.

As is common with a bottoming of a market the rate of price decline has started to slow and in some suburbs like Carrara have witnessed 8% growth in the last quarter. Again looking at supply and demand the Local Property Guide in the Gold Coast Bulletin typically had over 200 pages last year, and is now just averaging 70 pages of houses for sale. There is a distinct lack of mortgagee sales and it appears that forced sellers are now out of the market, which should lead to more price stability.
Those dinner conversations we referred to earlier though, will not have taken into account the massive boost to the Gold Coast, if it wins the Commonwealth Games Bid and in particular to the suburbs surrounding the designated games stadium in Carrara.

Property prices close to Commonwealth games venues increase by up to 200%

The most significant rises are   close the venue and in the case of te Gold Coast will benefit Carrara, Nerang, Worongary, Highland Park, Sorrento, Benowa and Ashmore.

Following the announcement that Glasgow is to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games, Dandara predicts that property prices in Scotland’s largest city are expected to soar. House prices in some areas of Manchester increased by nearly 200* per cent after the city hosted the Commonwealth Games in 2002.

The next two decades will see £1.6bn** ploughed into the Clyde Gateway and schemes such as Dandara’s iconic gh2o located on the River Clyde are already being snapped up by astute investors.

Hugh McGuinness, Sales Director of Dandara comments: “This is a fantastic win for Scotland and particularly Glasgow. If Glasgow follows the success that Manchester saw five years ago we will expect to see property prices dramatically increase.”

One confident buyer Henry Ainslie, a recent graduate, has already bought a stunning two bedroom apartment at Dandara’s gh2o and hopes to see the Games make him a ‘gold medal’ investment win.

Henry comments: ‘There is so much being invested in Glasgow particularly in and around the Clyde area. ‘gh2o’ seemed like an opportunity that couldn’t be missed. I’d done a lot of research into the area and it quickly become clear to me that buying at gh2o offered huge potential as a lucrative investment especially following the bid for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Now that the city has won the vote I am even more pleased that I made the decision.’

gh2o, with its eclectic mix of contemporary studio, one, and two bedroom apartments is situated on Glasgow’s West End waterfront, close to where many of the 2014 games events will take place. The SECC and Kelvingrove sports centre, two major sporting venues intended for the 2014 commonwealth games are only a short walk away.

The Commonwealth Games will see the arrival of river taxi’s, improved rail travel, an extension of Glasgow’s underground and a network of cycle and footpaths which pass right in front of gh2o!

Henry continues: ‘I love Glasgow’s West End – it’s so dynamic and everything I need is there. As soon as I walk into my flat I have three floor to ceiling windows with amazing views over the West End and of the old Glasgow University buildings. The superb views, as well as this great opportunity to invest in Glasgow are the reasons I bought the apartment!’

Views of the River Clyde and the city can be enjoyed from glass balconies and terraces set in an eye-catching exterior that displays unique black, white and copper cladding.

Within the development there are 21 different styles of apartment and an impressive 95% of apartments enjoy river views. Kitchens have stainless steel appliances including hob, oven, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and mechanical extractor hood, all of which are cleverly integrated within the kitchen units. Each kitchen opens out onto the living area, making the most of these bright and spacious apartments and ensuring that great views are not just restricted to the living room!

Henry continues: ‘I love living here and I am thrilled that Glasgow’s bid for the 2014 Commonwealth Games was successful. It means a lot to the continuing success of Glasgow and will be great for my property too!’

With the London Olympic Games now less than two years away, latest research by Lloyds TSB indicates a mixed bag. The research measured house-price performance in 14 districts near the Olympic Park since the city was awarded the Games in July 2005. It found gains of 69 and 53 per cent respectively in Homerton and Shoreditch, significantly above the Greater London average of 36 per cent.

“Strong rental demand is already in place, particularly from those working on the construction of the Olympic site. This has meant strong yields for many investors in the area, which certainly does not encourage the sale of rental properties at this time in the market,” he says.

Naomi Heaton, CEO of London Central Portfolio, cites the analogy between London’s exclusive West End and the “deprived East End”, where the Olympic stadium is being built.

“As the international focus intensifies on central London in the run-up to the Olympics, it is likely that buying demand will increase. In a market in which only about 100 units are changing hands a week, it is likely that demand will significantly outstrip supply,” Heaton says.

“As far back as 2004, Halifax [a subsidiary of Lloyds Banking Group] claimed that the regenerative effects from hosting an Olympic Games generally had a positive impact on house prices. Looking at the four host cities between 1992 and 2004, its research showed prices rose 19 per cent more than the national average over the five-year period in the run-up to the Olympic Games. Five years before the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002, house prices in central Manchester were 23 per cent below the northwestern region. At the end of the Games year, they were 2.5 per cent higher.

“When the 2012 Games are over, the winners will be the smart investors who have recognised the added value of [central London].”
