Is it true that sex can actually give some
people a headache?
NOT TONIGHT, HONEY: SEX AND HEADACHES
Headaches may be caused by lack of sex!
Great sex may be more important to your health
then you think - did you know that your sex
life could be related to the headaches you
get? It turns out that quick sex can cause
headaches while more sex might actually help
What is sex headache?
Some of you may have already had the unfortunate
experience of sex headaches. This is head
pain that often starts during sex, orgasm,
or masturbation. For some they are short
in duration (5 to 10 minutes), while for
others the pain can hang around for over
an hour. People who frequently have migraines
or other types of headaches are actually
more prone to suffer from sex headaches.
And, while both men and women have been known
to get these types of pains during sexual
activity men are actually more likely to
get sex headaches.
What causes sex headaches?
Over-exertion during sex
While it is not entirely certain what causes
sex headaches, a lot of research indicate
that they are related to over-exertion during
sexual intercourse. Some think that men have
these headaches more often then women because
they tend to do most thrusting and moving
during sexual activity. Essentially what
may be happening is that you are experiencing
a headache similar to one that you would
have if you just completed an overly strenuous
exercise activity. It may sound silly, but
sex is exercise and you may find it helpful
to warm up a little before bringing yourself
up to full speed and pace yourself during
intercourse (read: foreplay helps avoid headaches!).
Getting yourself physically fit by routinely
exercising, eating right, and managing your
weight can also help.
Reaching orgasm too quickly may also be a
culprit. If your sexual tension is building too
quickly you may be experiencing a rapid increase
in your blood pressure. This rapid increase
in blood pressure may cause you to have a
headache. So men: if quickies are your thing,
your partner’s complaints may not be
the only thing you have to worry about! If
you have sex headaches you might want to
consider allowing for a slow build to orgasm.
Strenuous sexual position
It is worth noting that some sex headaches
might actually just be the result of your
favorite sexual positions or even tension
during sex. Certain sexual positions can
put strain on body parts or increase the
flow of blood to your head. For example,
having your head hanging down lower then
the rest of your body or putting your neck
in awkward and stiff positions during sex
can cause you to have head pain. Changing
your sexual positions or limiting the amount
of time spent in those positions can make
a vast difference in whether or not you suffer
from sex headaches. Also, incorporating massage
into foreplay can help relax those neck muscles
that tend to get too tense during sex.
Sex headache is a common problem
Those who routinely suffer from sex headaches should
not be afraid to consult their primary care
physician about the problem. Hundreds of thousands of Americans experience
sex headaches so there is no reason for you
to be embarrassed. While most sex headaches
are benign in origin it is always a good
practice to rule out the possibility that
you are suffering from something from something
Treatments for sex headache
Not only can longer, better-paced sex reduce
the risk of sex headaches, but having sex
more frequently may actually help you ease
migraines and other types of headaches!
Sex helps reduce headaches by encouraging
your body to release endorphins that have
a similar effect on your body as morphine.
Frequent sex can also help reduce stress
and tension levels that can often times trigger
severe headaches. Research done in Germany
and by a South Illinois School of Medicine
suggest sex is a great treatment for general
headache. The good news is, the more powerful
the orgasm the greater the level of endorphins
released and therefore the greater headache
relief you experience
Natural Supplement for Better Sex
If you are having sex related headaches or
are interested in reducing the amount of
headaches you experience in general by increasing
the frequency, length, and orgasmic pleasure
of your lovemaking you might want to explore
the world of herbal medicine. There are a
variety of natural alternatives on the market
that can make your lovemaking experience
more enjoyable and give you the energy to
have sex more often.

Cancer does not develop for some unknown
reason. Once you understand why and how it develops, and learn
how to support your body so that it may more
effectively fight cancer, it may never be too late to get healthy
again. (No matter what type, they have the same
underlying causes.) Cancer is a natural process
where, to put it simply, an overworked and
weakened immune system cannot kill it as
fast as it is multiplying. Toxin, carcinogens, radiation, even viruses, combined with an
unhealthy internal environment , and in conjunction
with a weakened immune system, cause more
cells to turn cancerous, and allows them
You must change your internal environment to
one in which cancer cannot thrive. Just as
we couldn't live on Mars with no oxygen,
cancer can't exist in cells where there
is enough oxygen. Unfortunately, all too often our cells are
low in oxygen. Fortunately it is possible
to increase the levels of oxygen in cells,
thus, making your body's internal environment
a place where cancer can't easily survive.
Immune System Support for Cancer
Cancer is a perfectly natural process. A very small percentage of cells in every
person who has ever lived turn cancerous.
And the body usually gets rid of those cancerous
cells before they do harm. This process has been going on for eons.
It is only when more cancer cells are being
created than the body can get rid of that
the problem comes. With increased toxins,
viruses, carcinogens, etc. our immune systems
have become significantly overworked and weakened.
The underlying cause of all cancer, no matter
what type, may have been discovered by Otto
Warburg over 50 years ago. He actually won
two Nobel Prizes for work proving cancer
is caused by a lack of oxygen respiration
in cells. He stated in "The Prime Cause
and Prevention of Cancer" that the cause
of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know
it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60%
of its oxygen requirements.
Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless
secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there
is only one prime cause. Summarized in a
few words, the prime cause of cancer is the
replacement of the respiration of oxygen
in normal body cells by a fermentation of
All normal body cells meet their energy needs
by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer
cells meet their energy needs in great part
by fermentation. All normal body cells are
thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer
cells are partial anaerobes." J.B. Kizer,
a biochemist and physicist at Gungnir Research
in Portsmith, Ohio explained, "Since
Warburg's discovery, this difference
in respiration has remained the most fundamental
(and some say, only) physiological difference
consistently found between normal and cancer
A nurse who works in medical research said, "It's so simple. I don't know
why I never thought of it before. When we're
working with cell cultures in the lab, if
we want the cells to mutate, we turn down
the oxygen, to stop them, we turn the oxygen
Ma Lan, MD and Joel Wallach DVD, point out
that one type of white blood cells kills
cancer cells by injecting oxygen creating hydrogen peroxide
into the cells. Looking at cancer in this
light, it makes sense to drastically increase cellular
oxygen levels and to detoxify the body so
that more cells stay oxygenated. ......

If you surf the web, no doubt you will find
dozens of web sites singing the praises of
Here is something we found at: http://www.accessexcellence.org/AB/BC/Louis_Pasteur.html
If one were to choose among the greatest
benefactors of humanity, Louis Pasteur would
certainly rank at the top. He solved the
mysteries of rabies, anthrax, chicken cholera,
and silkworm diseases, and contributed to
the development of the first vaccines. He
debunked the widely accepted myth of spontaneous generation, thereby setting the stage for modern biology
and biochemistry. He described the scientific
basis for fermentation, wine-making, and
the brewing of beer. Pasteur's work gave
birth to many branches of science, and he
was singlehandedly responsible for some of
the most important theoretical concepts and
practical applications of modern science.
Pasteur's achievements seem wildly diverse
at first glance, but a more in-depth look
at the evolution of his career indicates
that there is a logical order to his discoveries.
He is revered for possessing the most important
qualities of a scientist: the ability to
survey all the known data and link the data
for all possible hypotheses, the patience
and drive to conduct experiments under strictly
controlled conditions, and the brilliance
to uncover the road to the solution from
From www.lucidcafe.com/library/95dec/pasteur.html we got the following:
Louis Pasteur was born on December 27, 1822 in Dole, in
the region of Jura, France. His discovery
that most infectious diseases are caused
by germs, known as the "germ theory
of disease", is one of the most important
in medical history. His work became the foundation
for the science of microbiology, and a cornerstone
of modern medicine.
Pasteur's phenomenal contributions to
microbiology and medicine can be summarized
as follows. First, he championed changes
in hospital practices to minimize the spread
of disease by microbes. Second, he discovered
that weakened forms of a microbe could be
used as an immunization against more virulent
forms of the microbe. Third, Pasteur found
that rabies was transmitted by agents so
small they could not be seen under a microscope,
thus revealing the world of viruses. As a
result he developed techniques to vaccinate
dogs against rabies, and to treat humans
bitten by rabid dogs. And fourth, Pasteur developed "pasteurization",
a process by which harmful microbes in perishable
food products are destroyed using heat, without
destroying the food.
UNESCO proclaimed 1995 as "The Year
of Pasteur." Just prior to that, Pasteur’s
family proudly released his notes and research.
Gerald Geison, a science historian, was among
the first people to thoroughly review those
notes. In 1995, The Year of Pasteur, Geison
wrote an article in the New York Times proclaiming that Pasteur had lied about his
research on vaccines and germs and that most
of his ideas had been plagiarized from his
contemporaries. His article, "Pasteur’s
Deception" claimed that Pasteur was,
in the end, a fraud.
Now this is a terrible proclamation to make
over anyone, especially one so highly revered
in modern medicine. The French erected statues
and built an institute dedicated to this
great man. What on earth would make anyone
wish to believe he was a fraud?
Personally, it’s not an easy task to
rewrite history, as it is not easy to denigrate
someone of Pasteur’s stature. When
faced with two opposing viewpoints, I’ve
often been accused of taking the side of
the most pernicious, the least favored, and
the most dramatic. In reality, an investigative
journalist is only as good as the information
s/he digs up. What is truth and what is fiction
must be determined by the facts. And as "Deep
Throat" of Watergate fame said, "Follow the money."
In researching medicine, following the money
has always led to the truth. The money, in
Pasteur’s case, has led to unnecessary
and mandatory vaccination programs. Wouldn’t we all like to own a company
that gets support from a government that
will enact laws to make the purchase of our
Where to begin? Well, let’s begin with
the Germ Theory.
As discussed in The Lost History of Medicine, the Terrain is more important than the Germ.
Pasteur described germs as non-changeable. We know
today, from the use of Darkfield Microscopes
that microorganisms are pleomorphic, that
they can change and often do. A virus can become a bacterium which can
mutate into a yeast or fungus. Modern medicine
has yet to acknowledge this because it would turn the pharmaceutical interests
on their backs like a helpless tortoise.
Again, we follow the money.
Medical tests take your blood and then fix
it with a dye. They freeze the blood in a
fixed state. The germs therein are frozen
in time. This is not real life. Germs change,
blood moves; life is a process, not a fixed
It was Bechamp who discovered the pleomorphic
nature of germs, and later on Bernard described
the "milieu" or environment that
affected/caused those changes. Bernard is
the one responsible for our theories today
on pH and how the nature of the microorganisms
change as the body moves from an alkaline
pH to an acidic pH. (This is covered in depth
in our article The Lost History of Medicine.)
On his deathbed, Pasteur recanted, saying
that Bernard was right; the Terrain is everything,
the Germ is nothing.
However, since the Germ is so profitable, the medical
world has written off his final statements
as the madness of a dying man. We should all be so mad.
Another problem with the Germ Theory of medicine
is discovered when we look at Koch’s
Postulates as they apply to Pasteur's
- The germ which causes a disease must be found
in every case of the disease under the conditions
which could explain the disease.
- The germ must not be found in other diseases
or healthy people.
- The germ could be isolated and used to induce
an experimental disease in animals which
resembles the original disease in humans.
Author's Note: we received a bit of criticism
from a Veterinarian who points out that Koch's
Postulates are actually quite different:
- The bacteria must be present in every case
of the disease.
- The bacteria must be isolated from the host
with the disease and grown in pure culture.
- The specific disease must be reproduced when
a pure culture of the bacteria is inoculated
into a healthy susceptible host.
- The bacteria must be recoverable from the
experimentally infected host.
However, for simplicity's sake, we're
discussing here how they would be applied
to Pasteur's original experiments.
Pasteur never quite fulfilled all the rules.
He was not able to find the germ in all cases
of a disease, and this is where his research
became fraudulent. Additionally, many so-called pathogenic germs
are often found in healthy people. And finally,
when Pasteur passed a germ from one animal to
another to cause the disease, he did not
pass the germ alone, but took some blood
with it. Injecting toxic blood from one animal
to another will guarantee the receiving animal
One of the first books published that took
a serious look at the work of Pasteur in
an unfavorable light was Bechamp or Pasteur, written by Ethel Douglas in 1923. It has
since then been reprinted under the heading,
Pasteur Exposed, a more dramatic title that would guarantee
Douglas’s book describes Pasteur as
an ambitious self-promoter. She shows how
Pasteur plagiarized Bechamp's work in
unraveling the mysteries of fermentation
and the causes of disease in silkworms. But
Pasteur wasn’t as bright as Bechamp
and made some very serious mistakes in both
his interpretation of Bechamp’s work
and subsequent theories and practices which
he later espoused.
Joseph Lister, the young surgeon who developed antiseptic
surgery methods wrote to Pasteur thanking
him for his research in sepsis. We know this to be true since many of Lister’s
early surgeries, using carbolic acid at the
strengths advised by Pasteur, ended successfully, though the patient died. Bechamp was the first person to experiment
with carbolic acid, and he warned against
its toxicity. Pasteur poo-pooed this fear
and presented his own theories to the world
that Lister had picked up on. It took Joseph Lister a few more years
of refining his techniques and using less
and less carbolic acid to finally produce
an antiseptic surgery in which the patient
While Bechamp spent years proving that germs
were the consequence of disease and not the
cause, Pasteur’s theory was much simpler
and highly profitable. It made economic sense.
It made money.
Another book that came out on this subject
is The Dream and The Lie of Louis Pasteur, and can be found on the web in a few locations.
Here is just one: http://www.sumeria.net/dream/7.html. If you are interested in learning more
about the fraudulent research of Pasteur,
this is where to start.
Pasteur instructed his family never to release
his lab notes. After his grandson died in
1975, they were finally released. This was
when Professor Gerald Geison got a hold of
them and presented his findings in 1993 to
the American Association for the Advancement
of Science. The New York Times, seeing how UNESCO had named 1995 the Year
of Pasteur, felt that this would be the proper
time to release Gerald Geison’s research.
Don’t you just love a good drama?
The Myth of Pasteurization
One more thing before we go. Our second reference
above makes this statement: "Pasteur
developed ‘pasteurization’, a
process by which harmful microbes in perishable
food products are destroyed using heat, without
destroying the food."
This is not entirely true. Pasteurization
does NOT kill ALL harmful microbes in milk
and it DOES harm the milk.
In her book, The Medical Mafia, Dr Lanctôt debunks pasteurization
with a one-two punch:
- The temperature is not high enough.
- The temperature is too high.
First off, Dr Lanctôt points out that
germs that bring us typhoid, coli bacillus,
and tuberculosis are not killed by the temperatures
used, and there have been a good number of
salmonella epidemics traced to pasteurized
Secondly, the heating process injures the
milk. She points out that pasteurization
destroys milk’s intrinsic germicidal
properties, not to mention healthy enzymes.
She goes on to state that 50% of milks calcium
is unusable (the body cannot assimilate it)
after pasteurization. So much for all those
Here’s something we found online that
was drawn up for a Los Angeles County Board
of Supervisors concerning outbreaks from
1997, 28 persons ill from Salmonella in California,
ALL FROM PASTEURIZED MILK.
1996, 46 persons ill from Campylobacter and
Salmonella in California.
1994, 105 persons ill from E. coli and Listeria
March of 1985 19,660 confirmed cases of Salmonella
typhimurium illness FROM CONSUMING PROPERLY
PASTEURIZED MILK. Over 200,000 people ill
from Salmonella typhimurium in PASTEURIZED
1985, 142 cases and 47 deaths traced to PASTEURIZED
Mexican-style cheese contaminated with Listeria
monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes SURVIVES
1985, 1500 persons ill from Salmonella infection
August of 1984 approximately 200 persons
became ill with a Salmonella typhimurium
from CONSUMING PASTEURIZED MILK
November of 1984, another outbreak of Salmonella
typhimurium illness from CONSUMING PASTEURIZED
1983, over 49 persons with Listeria illness
have been associated with the consumption
of PASTEURIZED MILK in Massachusetts.
1993, 28 persons ill from Salmonella infection
1982, 172 persons ill (100 hospitalized)
from a three Southern state area from PASTEURIZED
1982, over 17,000 persons became ill with
Yersinia enterocolitica from PASTEURIZED
MILK bottled in Memphis, Tennessee.
It is the author’s conclusion that
pasteurization is simply a quick fix that
allows large cartels to profit from the sales
of milk. Instead of relying on safe, sterile
handling procedures of raw milk (which would
make the costs of milk much more expensive),
we’ve incorporated this quick fix,
which might or might not work, but certainly
helps the cartels profit. If you live near
a farm, go get yourself some raw milk. Heck,
I’d even drink that!

Cases Of Argyria
A prominent case was that of Stan Jones of
Montana, a Libertarian candidate for the
United States Senate in 2002 and 2006. Jones
acquired argyria through consumption of a
home-made silver product that he made due
to fears that the Year 2000 problem would
make antibiotics unavailable. The peculiar
colouration of his skin was featured prominently
in media coverage of his unsuccessful campaign,
though Jones contends that the best-known
photo was "doctored". Jones
promised that he was not using his silvery
complexion as a gimmick. He continues to
promote the use of colloidal silver as a
home remedy. He has said that his good
health, minus the unusual skin tone, is the
result of his use of colloidal silver.
On December 20, 2007 the world press published
stories about Paul Karason, a California
man whose entire skin gradually turned blue after consuming colloidal silver made
by himself with distilled water, salt and
silver, and using a silver salve on his face
in an attempt to treat problems with his
sinus, dermatitis, acid reflux, and other
issues. This happened because he drank gallons
of colloidal silver per week for years.

Our soil is depleted! In l992 at the International
Soil Summit in Rio-de-Jenero, Scientists
concluded that the North American soil’s
mineral content had been depleted by 85%
in the last 100 years. Given that minerals
are one of, if not, the most important nutrient(s)
known to man, this statistic is alarming.
As a result, our fruits and vegetables have
become “hollow” and void of any
substantial nutritional value. Thus, sickness
and disease are sweeping our nation.
Why has our soil become depleted? Depletion
has been caused by “over usage”
of our lands to maximize profits, by various
contaminants and by the use of NPK fertilizer.
The NPK fertilizer pushes the useable minerals
beyond the reach of the plants’ root
systems, pulls the heavy metals into the
top soil, then into the plants and ultimately
into our bodies.
Sick soil means sick plants, sick animals
and sick people! Do you now understand why
people get sick?
Listen to what one expert had to say. According
to former US Surgeon General, Dr. C. Everett
Koop, “Of the 2.4 million deaths that
occur in the United States each year, 75%
are the result of Avoidable nutritional factor
diseases.” This means 3 out of 4 people
that died, didn’t have to die. Who
was it for you??
We are “not” eating real food!
Most of the foods we eat are not real. They
are loaded with “fillers”. Our
processed foods are filled with food toxins,
growth hormones, preservatives, and a host
of other synthetic compounds that weaken
our bodies. With all the additives in our
foods, no wonder we spend more than 3 times
the amount of money on our healthcare than
we do our Western neighbors. 6l% of Americans
are now overweight and another 22% are obese!.
Millions of children are ADD or ADHD due
to fast foods, processed foods and “white”
products that have the next generation already
in declining health. Now, it is common to
find children under the age of 12 with diabetes,
young girls’ bodies maturing before
their minds and over 3 million teenagers
diagnosed with depression…
Do you see the problem???
The food industry, which is over $l Trillion,
creates the problem and the l.5 Trillion
drug industry “treats the symptoms”
created by the food. Although, there is obviously
no direct conspiracy, the economic impact
is the same.
Doctors and healthcare professionals have
convinced us that the joint and bone pains,
low energy, heart burn, arthritis, or other
ailments are just a part of growing old.
Could it be that you are “eating your
With Walt Merriman’s knowledge we understand
that these problems can have solutions.
Prescription drugs are not designed to cure
diseases! They are designed to suppress the
symptoms until the body finds a way of healing
Did you know that billions of dollars are
spent each year on research to find cures
for diseases? Yet, the last major disease
that was eradicated was Polio. That was over
60 years ago. Did you know we lose roughly
250,000 of our loved ones each year to prescription
drugs? That’s right…a quarter
of a million people die by properly and improperly
taking prescription drugs. In any given year,
this makes prescription drugs, one of the
top five killers in the country. Yet, you
have never heard about this. Do you see the
reason to gain this knowledge and understanding?
With the best technology in the world, we

l in every 2500 children was diagnosed with

Does it make sense to take a drug to “fix”
one thing, but “break” 3 or 4
other things as reflected by the side effects?
Organs in your body that were working just
fine before the drugs are now being damaged.
Now you have to take more drugs for the damaged
organs which ultimately leads where? To declining
health and possibly even death!
Do you now understand that maybe what we
thought was designed to help us may in fact
be hurting or even killing us?
Internal toxins are damaging our bodies.
Just like your car needs an internal cleaning
(oil change) in order to operate properly,
the body needs an internal cleansing. With
all the toxins we allow into our bodies through
our foods and water, along with the synthetic
drugs that millions of Americans take, we
have created a cesspool for disease to grow.
If you put garbage into your system, but
never take it out, it’s going to create
major health-related problems.
Cleansing is a key component to maintaining
optimal health. Any wellness message that
does not include the message of cleansing
is an incomplete message. Walt has one of
the most comprehensive cleansing programs
in the industry.
Walt focuses on the body’s foundation
first and foremost. We go back to the understanding
that certain nutritional needs have to be
met. This creates the proper foundational
which our body is required to have, to be
able to heal itself. Nature has given us
the information needed, using a little logic
we can all understand how it works.
Angstrom-sized particles, most are l0,000
times smaller than the pharmaceutical grade
products. Pharmacticals are micron sized
that have been manipulated. Angstrom sized
particles are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream
and immediately consumed by the cells while
in the bloodstream.
Naturally ionized –Walt’s mineral
products naturally breakdown until the particles
pick up the ionized charge. This allows the
minerals to attach to the walls of the intestines
and then be absorbed into the bloodstream.

Water soluble-There is no settling of the
products, no need to “shake well”.
There is no vegetable protein base. We purchase
minerals from the mining industry the same
as pharmaceutical companies, the difference
comes in the particle breakdown, we go through
a proprietary process to achieve the level
that provides the body with optimum absorption.
We harvest the minerals after they’ve
acquired the ionized charge and then re-introduce
the minerals into super clean water. Thus,
we have “Water Divine”.
What’s in our product?
The answer is very simple, it’s minerals
and water. We understand that when the body

"...The leaky gut syndrome is almost always associated with autoimmune
disease and reversing autoimmune disease
depends on healing the lining of the gastrointestinal

category include lupus, alopecia areata,
rheumatoid arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica,

Due to the enlarged spaces between the cells
of the gut wall, larger than usual protein
