Beware: Sepsis Plays a Role in Many Influenza Deaths

Sepsis Or Flu

Importantly, sepsis has been identified as a major contributor in influenza deaths. According to researchers, “Severe sepsis is traditionally associated with bacterial diseases … However, viruses are becoming a growing cause of severe sepsis worldwide.”

As noted in the video above, some sepsis symptoms also resemble those of influenza, which can have tragic consequences if you do not seek medical help in time. The video offers guidelines on how to tell the difference between the two.

Sepsis, without doubt, requires immediate medical attention, whereas most people will successfully recover from flu with a few days to a week of bedrest and fluids. Just how influenza can lead to sepsis is a somewhat complex affair.


In Taos, a community of ‘voluntary anarchists’ is taking off-the-grid living to the next level

Taos House

In Taos, a community of ‘voluntary anarchists’ is taking off-the-grid living to the next level

Just a few miles from where New Mexico’s Route 64 crosses the Rio Grande, a collection of alien looking buildings stand out in the otherwise desolate landscape. These houses—79 in total—are built partially into their natural surroundings, each with a wall of windows facing directly south.

While the houses, with their rounded corners and colorful walls made of cans and bottles, may look more like spaceships than human dwellings, the opposite is true: The buildings are even called “earthships.” Located just outside of Taos, this community—known as the Greater World Earthship Community—provides full-time housing to at least 130 people. Under the name Earthship Biotecture, it also hosts an academy in partnership with Western Colorado University, an internship program, and a visitor center open to the public.

Earthship Biotecture is almost completely self-sustainable—and it wants to teach you how to live off the grid, too.


Oregon Physician Who Had Children Medically Kidnapped Goes Public

Kimberly Foster Family

Dr. Kimberly Foster is a licensed physician in Oregon. She graduated with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, one of the top universities in natural medicine in the world. She runs the Oregon Naturopathic Clinic in Eugene, Oregon.

I have known Dr. Foster for some time now, as she is a tremendous advocate for those victimized by medical kidnapping. While more and more media outlets are now starting to cover the terrible injustice of medical kidnapping, what few in the public understand is that if parents are successful in getting their children returned to them, the battle is not over.

In fact, it is just beginning.

The trauma that these families go through causes incredible stress and long-term emotional and psychological damage – both for the children as well as the parents.

Dr. Foster has experienced this first hand herself, and has not only gone through the healing process with her own family, but she has started treating other families that have experienced similar ordeals, using her training as a naturopathic physician.

Dr. Foster finally feels ready to go public with her own story, and we are publishing it in her own words.

Worrying Trend of Aussie Retail

Better Or Worse 1980-2019

Towards the end of last year, we saw a number of retailers going into voluntary administration, with Harris Scarfe (66 stores, 1800 employees) and Bardot (54 stores, 530 employees) being the most high profile. Other companies include burger chain Benny Burger, seven Red Rooster outlets in Queensland, fitness company Muscle Coach, the restaurant chain Criniti’s, discount chain Dimmeys and Co-op Bookshop.

Most of the stories cited the impact of online shopping and while certainly that has been a challenge to bricks and mortar stores, it isn’t a new development and we note that online retailers like Stylerunner and Zauli were also affected.

Come January, however, we saw a flood of store closures and voluntary administrations:
Jeanswest – voluntary administration, 988 employees affected
David Jones – 2 store closures
EB Games – 19 store closures
Mc Williams Wines – voluntary administration, 146 employees affected
Bose – closure of all stores
Curious Planet – 63 store closures
Kaufland – complete withdrawal from Australia, 200 employees affected
