YouTuber Drew from “Genetically Modified Skeptic ” attempts to align religion with alternative medicine. Honestly, I’m not sure what alternative medicine exactly is, or how it’s defined. According to Drew, both religion and alternative medicine (natural health) are pretty much the same thing. I debate those points with our friend Drew in this video.
How are religion and alternative medicine are similar according to Drew:
One of the most powerful herbs in Ayurvedic healing, Ashwagandha has been used since ancient times for a wide variety of conditions, and is most well-known as an adaptogen (natural substances that help the body to adapt to stress and exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes) with restorative properties. The use of Ashwagandha may help alleviate stress, fatigue, lack of energy and impaired concentration. It is frequently referred to as “Indian Ginseng” because of its rejuvenating properties.

Fulvargine is a blend of L-Arginine and Fulvic Acid. L-Arginine is a powerful circulatory stimulant used in the production of nitric oxide in the body which causes arteries to dilate for improved blood flow. L-Arginine stimulates the release of human growth hormone (HGH), which is a key to longevity. It is an immune system builder that improves circulation, promotes muscle growth and cardiovascular health. L-Arginine regenerates the liver and improves libido.
Fulvic Acid is an excellent carrier that has the ability to transport nutrients around the body better than any other element. L-Arginine and Fulvic Acid work synergistically to enhance their nutritional impact on the body. For peak performance, take Fulvargine around 30 minutes before a work out since it opens up the blood vessels and significantly improves circulation which results in improve cadio-function as a result of increased Nitric Oxide production in the body.
We combined L-Arginine with fulvic acid in liquid form for immediate effect. If you’re an athlete then you know that nitric oxide is required for a great workout. L-Arginine is an essential amino acid which is required by the body for use in several capacities. Athletes use Arginine for the production of Nitric Oxide and Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which is one of the keys to longevity.
Produces Nitric Oxide in the Body`
Opens the Arteries and Increases Blood Flow
Assists in the release of Human Growth Hormone
Improves cardiovascular function
Encourages wounds to heal
Regenerates the Liver.
Promotes muscle growth
Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. L-arginine is an amino acid that opens up the blood vessels.
Nitric oxide was named “Molecule of the Year” in 1992 . Three US scientists—Robert F. Furchgott, PhD, Louis J. Ignarro, PhD, and Ferid Murad, MD, PhD received the 1998 Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine for its discovery.
Papaya Seeds are also famous for their ability to remove parasites from the body.
Papaya seeds help heal cirrhosis of the liver and improve kidney function and renal failure. Its anti-inflammatory properties promote joint disease. Papaya seeds contain an alkaloid known ascarpaine which kills intestinal worms and amoeba parasites.
Humus and Human have the same meaning: From and Of the Earth. Humus is the primary root of our food supply. Humic and Fulvic Acids are the substrates of the soil from which we get our food. Our soil is mineral depleted, which means our foods are mineral depleted, which means WE are mineral depleted.
We obtain our American Shilajit from New Mexico along the continental divide where the ancient plant material has been crushed and compacted for 100,000’s years.
Minerals are the keys that start the engine of our health.Every metabolic process in the body depends on a mineral to function. – Dr. Bob McCauley Humic acids are a group of compounds created by the degradation of organic matter and are a portion of natures biological processes. Over time the deposited material has decomposed and reduced into humic, fulvic, and ulmic fractions. Humic and Fulvic acids are excellent for human health.

He talks fast, very fast. When he talks social issues and politics I don’t pay much attention. But when Ben Shapiro – www.DailyWire.com Editor in Chief, talks about health issues he usually demonstrates that his knowledge about health is about that of the average person which is almost nothing.
Should we eat meat? Well, his wife, who is a medical doctor, says “Yes, there are nutrients in meat that you require.” Is Mrs. Shapiro a nutritionists? Has she studies nutrition? Medical doctors get absolutely zero training in medical school about nutrition. None. Zip, zero, Nada. So why would Ben refer to his wife as an authority on whether or not we should eat meat. No offense to Mrs. Shapiro, MD, but you might as well use a grade school teacher or the mayor of a major city as your “authority” on nutrition because they know every bit as much about health as any medical doctor, including Mrs. Shapiro, MD.
I was a vegetarian for 18 years before I discovered first spirulina, then chlorella. These are the best foods for providing protein to the body. When I added those foods to my diet I understood that I didn’t need to consume meat, fish, eggs or dairy. I was getting the protein from spirulina and chlorella. I still love dairy but I avoid it. A plant-based, vegan diet is the healthiest diet. Oh, and don’t cooked any of the plants if you want to truly be healthy.
When you hear about a “study” that claims a food that you generally feel is not healthiest food on the market, such as beef or eggs, or perhaps bread, then you should be suspicious. The studies that seem to fly in the face of everything you know were likely funded by the industry that produces them.
At least 10 peer-reviewed studies about pasta published since 2008 were either fundeddirectly by Barilla or, like the one published this month, were carried out by scientists who have had financial ties to the company, which reported sales of 3.4 billion euros ($4.2 billion) in 2016. For two years, Barilla has publicized some of these studies, plus others favorable to its product, on its website with taglines like “Eat Smart Be Smart…With Pasta” and “More Evidence Pasta Is Good For You.” And the company hired the large public relations firm Edelman to push the latest study’s findings to journalists. – Buzz Feed
Incredible. I always liked pasta, but a superfood? Not really.
A woman went on Shark Tank to pitch chlorella and spirulina. I really wish she had offered her pitch a little differently because she might had actually been successful at convincing the sharks that wasn’t “just a marketing company”. In fact, she was trying to introduce them to the world’s two most powerful wholefoods on the planet. She made a few mistakes and I wanted to point them out. Maybe they’ll give her a opportunity to try again!
If you add chlorella and/or spirulina to your diet and take 8 – 10 grams per day you will get all the protein you need and you will be successful and healthy. Just be sure you don’t eat junk food. I have seen so many people become vegetarian and all they do is stop eating meat. They still eat chips, junk food, fast food, etc and they they don’t get healthier because health is about eating the right foods and not eating garbage foods. Make sure to include salads and fresh fruit in your diet along with chlorella and spirulina. You’ll be fine.
