"Homeopathy has truly been life changing for myself and my family. I'm glad that we were able to find Kari and were able to work with her. She is a world of knowledge."

Our Daughter's Recovery From Anemia Requiring Blood Transfusions

"I had the pleasure of working with Kari J. Kindem, CFHom for about 9 months. My daughter had been diagnosed with chronic anemia. Her hemoglobin count would get so low, she needed blood transfusions constantly, it started out as every couple months then monthly, and then became too frequent, needing blood transfusions every 2-3 weeks. The 3 different prescriptions were kind of helping but enough to keep her out of getting a transfusion. And the co-pay was about $300 after insurance for all 3 prescriptions. I was desperate to find an alternative method that would actually help her.  I was recommended to Kari by my sister, who had a friend that was working with her.

Working with Kari, she put my daughter on Merc Sol, since she had been fully vaccinated, this was to help get rid of the toxins from mercury. She also started taking Probiotics, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Omega 3, Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin B Complex and Iodine. I started noticing changes not only her appearance but her attitude and overall well-being. With her anemia her face was always blotchy and almost ghost looking, she had no color on her lips. It was amazing to see her become more active and alert. She also had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep but after a few months, she was going to bed sooner and staying asleep, waking up feeling rested in the morning. When she got her levels checked for her anemia, they had gone up and maintained there so she was not even at risk for blood transfusions any longer.

It's been a year since my daughter has had a blood transfusion and it is all thanks to Kari. We could not have been able to do it without her help. I have come to learn and love homeopathy through this whole process and would recommend Kari to anyone who is looking for another opinion or a better alternative to have better health. Homeopathy works and it is less invasive and not as expensive in the long run.

My Husband's Anger Issues, Drinking Issues, High Cholesterol and Insomnia Recovery

Kari also helped my husband and I better our health because in order for our daughter to fully recover and not cause her stress, we would also need to be at our best. My husband had high anger issues, major drinking issue, trouble sleeping and not feeling well rested when he got up in the mornings. He also had high cholesterol.

Kari put my husband on Merc Sol starting at the lowest dose and slowly moving up to 50M, which is the highest potency. She also had him taking Probiotics, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Zinc, Magnesium and Iodine. Since he had the drinking issue going on for so many years, it took a little longer to see better results on him. But it was nice to still be able to notice some changes, like when he would decide on his own not to drink that night, that was a huge plus. His sleeping pattern also got better. At his last doctor's appointment, his regular doctor had mentioned to him that whatever it was that he was taking, he needed to stay on it because his cholesterol levels were looking great and whatever he was doing was doing the trick. He was very pleased.

He is more energetic and pleasant to be around now. We are now able to spend more time together as a family and have more longer, deeper conversations as a couple. I absolutely love it. I still need to remind him to take his pills but as long as I set them out, he takes them, so reminding him is not a big deal. He also notices the changes in himself, which make it that much better.

My Recovery from Anxiety, Grief and Menstrual Issues

Kari had me mainly on Nat Mur as well as Probiotics, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, Omega 3, Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin B Complex, and Vitamin B12 Lozenge. I was also having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. I would get panic attacks, felt that I could not cope with stress well, and had some hormonal issues, also major grief loss.

After a few months of being on all the supplements Kari had me on, I noticed some major changes in my sleeping pattern and stress. I noticed I was no longer having panic or anxiety attacks. This was a huge plus for me, before this I had no idea it was such a problem I had. She recommended one remedy for if I felt an anxiety attack coming on so that I could stop it before it would happen and another one for if I had been stressed over for more than a few days like a family emergency and things like that. I also noticed that my periods were no longer so heavy and crampy and that I was actually ovulating alternating from both sides of my ovaries.

Homeopathy has truly been life changing for myself and my family. I'm glad that we were able to find Kari and were able to work with her. She is a world of knowledge. And I especially love that we were able to do it over the phone and not need to travel to see her. As long you give her full detailed information as to what, when, where, why, and how it is that you are feeling, she can guide you with what remedy to take. She is very passionate about helping others. Thank you Kari for all the help and everything you have done for me and my family. I am forever grateful."

"Vaxxed" Movie - From Cover-up to Catastrophe

"Vaxxed" Movie - From Cover up to Catastrophe

Go to this website to find out where this controversial, important film is being shown in your area.

“In 2013, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism.

The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over several months, Dr. Hooker records the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provides the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC.

Dr. Hooker enlists the help of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely accused of starting the anti-vax movement when he first reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine may cause autism. In his ongoing effort to advocate for children’s health, Wakefield directs this documentary examining the evidence behind an appalling cover-up committed by the government agency charged with protecting the health of American citizens.“

Healthy vitamin D levels associated with significant decrease in cancer risk among women

Healthy vitamin D levels associated with significant decrease in cancer risk among women

A recent pooled analysis of a randomized trial and prospective cohort study determined that women with vitamin D levels of at least 40 ng/ml were associated with > 65% reduced risk of developing cancer.

Cancer is highly prevalent, affecting approximately 40% of men and women in their lifetime. In 2012, a total of 14 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed worldwide with 8.2 million cancer-related deaths. This number continues to rise with an estimated increase of 22 million cancer cases within the next 20 years.

Cancer creates a significant financial burden. In 2010, cancer care accounted for a total of $125 billion in the U.S. alone. With cancer diagnoses continuing to grow, this number is projected to go up to $150 billion by 2020. Therefore, it is important for physicians to implement preventative measures in order to decrease the medical and financial burden of those affected by this disease.

Current evidence suggests that vitamin D status is inversely associated with several types of cancer, including prostate, lung and breast cancer. Furthermore, vitamin D has shown to exert anti-cancer properties. There are several mechanisms that may be responsible for these findings, including vitamin D’s ability to prevent cellular proliferation, promote programmed-cell death and decrease inflammation in cancer cells.

Although the role of vitamin D in cancer has been studied extensively, researchers recently aimed to determine if the previous findings are replicable, and to identify a reference range of 25(OH)D levels for the ideal prevention of cancer development among women 55 years and older.

In the current study, the researchers utilized data from two cohorts: The Lappe cohort (a double blind randomized control trial) and the GrassrootsHealth cohort (a prospective cohort). Unlike other studies, these studies represented different median vitamin D levels, offering a broader range of 25(OH)D concentrations to analyze.

The Lappe cohort took place in Nebraska, and evaluated a total of 1,169 women over the age of 55 years with no history of cancer. The participants were randomly assigned to one of the following treatments: calcium plus vitamin D placebo (either 1400 mg/day of calcium citrate or 1500 mg/day of calcium carbonate, calcium plus vitamin D (calcium as mentioned previously plus 1000 IU/day of vitamin D3), or control (calcium and vitamin D placebos).

The GrassrootsHealth cohort, conducted by a fellow public health non-profit in San Diego, CA, gathered the vitamin D levels of 1,135 women ages 55 and older who voluntarily joined the study with the aim to reach and sustain a serum 25(OH)D level of the participant’s choice. The participants measured their vitamin D levels via in-home vitamin D tests and reported their health outcomes by filling out an online questionnaire.

The researchers pooled data from both cohorts and compared the incidence of cancer with the subsequent vitamin D concentration over a median if 3.9 years. All types of cancers were included in the analysis, with the exception of non-melanoma skin cancer.

Did the researchers find a relationship between vitamin D status and cancer incidence in women? Here is what they found:

  • The median baseline vitamin D status was 28 ng/ml in the Lappe cohort and 43 ng/ml in the GrassrootsHealth cohort (p<0.0001).
  • There was a total of 840 cases of cancer per 100,000 individuals in the combined cohort (1,020/100,000 persons in Lappe cohort and 722/100,000 individuals in GrassrootsHealth cohort).
  • Cancer incidence was lower for individuals with higher levels of vitamin D.
  • At baseline, there was a 77% decreased incidence rate of cancer for those with levels > 40 ng/ml compared to those with < 20 ng/ml.
  • The greatest decrease in cancer risk occurred between 10–40 ng/ml, with a further beneficial effect at levels ≥40 ng/ml.
  • A 25(OH)D > 40 ng/ml was associated with a 67% decreased risk of cancer compared to those with a vitamin D status of < 20 ng/ml, after adjusting for several cofactors (age, BMI, smoking and calcium supplementation).

The researchers summarized their findings,

“We found a clear association between 25(OH)D serum concentration and cancer risk, according to multiple types of analyses. These results suggest the importance of vitamin D for the prevention of cancer.”

As always, it is important to note the limitations to this study. The use of self-reported data may result in recall bias, potentially skewing the results. Additionally, not all covariates could be accounted for. Furthermore, the analysis did not have the power to evaluate the role of vitamin D status on specific cancer types. Lastly, the study showed the relationship between vitamin D and cancer risk specifically among non-Hispanic, white women 55 years and older; therefore, the results may not be generalizable to other target populations.

The researchers concluded,

“Primary prevention of cancer, rather than solely expanding early detection or improving treatment, will be essential for reversing the current upward trend of cancer incidence worldwide; this analysis suggests that improving vitamin D status is a key prevention tool.”
