Research Validates Xylitol Health Benefits

19.8.2015 | 14:39

My last post regarding Xlear’s nasal spray emphasized the fact that the key ingredient in the spray is xylitol. Here’s a brief review of the effectiveness of  xylitol:

  • Xylitol is an all natural sugar alcohol found in fruits and vegetables, and it is produced minimally by the human body.
  • It’s the main ingredient in Xlear’s nasal spray.
  • It actually cleans, moisturizes, and rinses away nasal congestion.
  • It’s also able to totally wipe away other pollutants and allergy causing substances that may also be in your nasal passages.

During the past several decades, ALOT of research has been carried out to test the effectiveness of xylitol in treating nasal, dental, and other health issues. Astonishingly, the majority of research validates xylitol health products and has even recommended its usage in these items over today’s more conventional products.



Here is some of the research that has shown xylitol’s usefulness in overall healthcare:


Study #1

Researchers Ly, Milgrom, Rothen, Marilynn

Year: 2006

beaver white teethPublication:  Pediatric Dentistry

Participants: The authors of this article wrote a review of all of the research until their present date [2006] in which they reviewed all clinical trials and research on the efficacy of xylitol
toothpastes and sweeteners in dental care. They also reviewed other similar sweeteners.

: Based on the above mentioned extensive research, the research authors concluded that xylitol is proven to be effective in destroying the unclean bacteria found in plaque and saliva that leads to tooth decay, as well as in fighting cavities.

They also strongly encouraged clinicians and dentists to use and promote xylitol products, due to its dental effectiveness.

Xlear Nasal Spray Reviews: Freedom For Your Nose

17.8.2015 | 16:51

Throughout my life, I have always had sinus congestion issues. As a matter of fact, my entire family has always had these issues as well!

We have used and tried many methods and sprays, such as Ocean and even plain salt water. For some of us, one of the two worked, but for others, like myself, it never really gave me the results that I needed.

Many nasal sprays and therapies were tried.....with failure

Many nasal sprays and therapies were tried…..with failure

However, as recently as a few days, ago I found an ad for a totally different type of nasal spray.

Also, a subscriber and fan of the site urgently asked me to post a review of this product and to share my thoughts.

As I did my investigation, it looked like the type of nose spray that I’ve been looking for…..for a long long time!

And it turned out to be pretty true!


It’s clear from Xlear and the Xlear nasal spray reviews from numerous places painted this picture to me:


The Product Review

Product: Xlear Sinus Care Nasal Spray

Price: Depending on the package & seller, it can be between $11.99-$45.80

Cheapest Place to Buy: 

Guarantee: Yes

Tested: Yes, clinically

My Rating:  9.5/10







Xlear’s Sinus Care Nasal Spray’s key ingredient to sinus relief is the use of a white crystalline substance called Xylitol.

Xylitol is an all natural sugar alcohol found in fruits and vegetables, and it is produced minimally by the human body.

It leads to the effectiveness of this nose spray significantly. Unlike other regular nasal sprays that simply harden your nasal passage [and thereby could actually case more congestion later], the xylitol in Xlear’s Nasal Spray actually cleans, moisturizes, and rinses away nasal congestion.

It’s also able to totally wipe away other pollutants and allergy causing substances that may also be in your nasal passages.

Xylitol has also been used in toothpastes and other health products, with much success and recommendations.

And, all of this is totally drug free! The only other ingredients in this nasal spray are water, salt, and grapefruit seed extract.

Here are some additional benefits that you definitely won’t find in other nasal sprays, both natural and drug:

  • All Natural ingredients, Non-GMO & BPA’s.
  • Safe for all people of all ages and conditions
  • Works quickly and efficiently without pain
  • Can use while taking other medications, both conventional and alternative
  • It’s effectiveness is supported by 40 years of research and clinical trials
  • Recommended by doctors, pharmacists, pediatricians, and other health practitioners in several countries for the past 40 years!
  • Comes in different sizes, each at different prices

The best part is that extensive clinical research has proven the overall efficacy of Xlear’s nasal spray as well as other xylitol in both nasal as well as dental healthcare. Click here for more!


Here’s a short video by Xlear, showing how the spray works:


Other nasal sprays simply do not offer what Xlear offers. They do not fully clean out your nose of dangerous bacteria, allergy irritants, congestion, or the like. They simply offer temporary relief and can lead to a painful hardening of your nasal passages, which only does more harm than good.

Additionally, they can’t be used for children and for others with certain conditions. Overusing them can lead to critical side effects.



There’s only 1 con that I have found for this.

  • It costs slightly more than other regular nose sprays

But in all seriousness, it is a few dollars more than your regular bottle.

However, in the long run, when you consider the effectiveness of this spray and of what it offers, you may actually end up saving more money than you think.

Most likely, if you continue to rely on your regular nose spray, you will just end up having to use it over and over again and thus you will have to buy more. The opposite seems to be true with Xlear’s Nasal Spray.


My Experience

I’ve used Xlear’s nasal spray myself just twice since I bought it. Immediately after use, my nasal passageways opened up even more than before. 

And I really do feel my nose cleaned up more thoroughly than with other saline sprays, as Xlear claims it does!

In other words, without exaggeration, I feel more of an opening in my nasal passages than ever before.

Succussion in Homeopathy

17.8.2015 | 13:35

In one of my first articles, What Is Homeopathy?, I very briefly touched upon the process of succession, which is used to potentize substances into Homeopathic remedies. Due to the misconceptions out there, I wish to explain this more.

This includes the fact that based on this and other aspects of Homeopathy, many prominent scientists support Homeopathy.

The process of succussion involves the vigorous diluting and shaking of substances. Depending on the potency, the substance is mixed into water, shaken, and then put into another water solution where it is mixed again. Dilutions can range from 1/10-1/50,000, again depending on potency.tubes-305159_1280

Based on Hahnemann’s experiments [as mentioned in What Is Homeopathy?] and the Homeopathic provings carried out by homeopaths to this very day, the cycle and combination of vigorous succussions as well as the subsequent dilutions, potentize the substance, making it a stronger, more profound remedy upon the vital force.

These succussions are essentially able to enable potentization by altering the water’s structure in the solution, after each time it is diluted. This imparts electromagnetic waves in order to alter these structures during each succussion.

Meaning, that the energy essence of the the original substance becomes manifested in the physical Homeopathic remedy. It essentially retains a “memory” so to speak of the original. The more diluted the original, the more metaphysically stronger it becomes when potentized into a remedy.

Sounds odd…right?

It sure does!




Although both skeptics and even some homeopaths have understood this process to be somewhat of a mystery in how Homeopathy exactly works, several major scientists have explored this process and found that indeed the substance, even after it’s succussed, diluted, and swished in water, does retain a memory of the original substance.

And it can be visibly observed through scientific methods. Ironically, this discovery was made by prominent scientists and researchers who are not homeopaths. Many of them are also Nobel Prize Winners!


These are the scientists/researchers:


Dr. Jacques Benveniste, M.D.

Once highly regarded by the international scientific community, Dr. Jacques Benveniste was a renowned French immunologist for decades until the “Benveniste affair” in 1989. 

Dr. Benveniste conducted an experiment, which was to mimic 3 other similar, successful university studies. Using certain substances, he wanted to see if a substance, when extremely shaken and diluted, would have its molecular and energetic properties nonetheless maintained afterwards.

The results that he found, under rigorous scientific standards which included multiple tests and retests, found that indeed, the original makeup of the substance is still retained after dilutions.

These dilutions also were found to have an effect on a type of white blood cell known as basophils.

test-670091_1280However, due to the efforts of many in the scientific community, his research was apparently proven to be false and incomplete, which led to many medical and scientific institutions to cease funding his studies.

He also was further attacked by many in the scientific community for his revolutionary and controversial findings. Again, this was carried out by those who wanted to maintain the “accepted” view that a thoroughly diluted substance has no remnant of the original substance left, and “certainly” no “memory” of the original, in the form of energetic frequencies, remain.

Yet until his death in 2004, the efforts of Benveniste did not cease, as he continued investigating his previous research, which led to his official formation of the concept of “Digital Biology,” which summarizes his theory:

1. If a substance is diluted in water, the water can carry the “memory” of that substance despite the fact the none of the original molecules are left after the dilutions.

2. The molecules of any given substance have a spectrum of frequencies that can be digitally recorded with a computer, then played back into untreated water (using an electronic transducer), and when this is done, the new water will act as if the actual substance were physically present.



Brian Josephson, Ph.D.

A professor emeritus of Cambridge University and a Noble Prize winner, Brian Josephson first spoke out against critics of Benveniste and homeopathy after he attended one of Benveniste’s first conferences.

He noted how despite the fact that Benveniste offered credible research and analysis and that skeptics of Homeopathy have misunderstood [and in many cases twisted] the concepts of Homeopathy, he was viciously and “irrationally” attacked by many in the scientific community.

Josephson explained that the problem with the claims of skeptics is that they argue that Homeopathy cannot work because after so many dilutions, there is nothing physically left to be used in the solution to actually bring about healing.

However, he notes that supporters of Homeopathy have always noted that the Homeopathic remedies work because the only the molecular structure of the water changes during intense dilutions.

In other words, the energetic effect of the remedy comes about via the alteration of the change in the water’s structure, not because of the diminishment of the molecules in the solution.

In his own words:

Regarding your comments on claims made for homeopathy: criticisms centered around the vanishingly small number of solute molecules present in a solution after it has been repeatedly diluted are beside the point, since advocates of homeopathic remedies attribute their effects not to molecules present in the water, but to modifications of the water’s structure.

Simple-minded analysis may suggest that water, being a fluid, cannot have a structure of the kind that such a picture would demand. But cases such as that of liquid crystals, which while flowing like an ordinary fluid can maintain an ordered structure over macroscopic distances, show the limitations of such ways of thinking. There have not, to the best of my knowledge, been any refutations of homeopathy that remain valid after this particular point is taken into account.

Josephson has also spoken about the “pathological disbelief” of many in the scientific community and how they tend to dismiss any idea, concept, theory, or experiment that does not conform to their own conventional way of thinking. Ironic for apparently unscientific people who claim to strive for scientific standards.



Dr. Luc Montagnier

In 2008, Dr. Luc Montagnier won the Noble Prize for codiscovering the AIDS virus .In 2011, Montagnier came out in an interview in Science Magazine, basically supporting Homeopathy, based on his own research.

To summarize, he took the DNA of several pathogens, diluted them, and found that despite the intense dilutions of these pathogens, the remaining solutions were filled with electromagnetic waves. The highly diluted solution of DNA emitted electromagnetic particles which changed the structure of the water.

Bacteria and viral DNA produced the highest frequencies of electromagnetic waves; other various pathogens produced at lower frequencies.

He argued that this development, when applied correctly, could really aid in combatting numerous diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and autism.

Like Josephson, Montagnier also has proof and support for Homeopathy

Like Josephson, Montagnier has also criticized the scientific community for their witch hunt on Benveniste, the “modern Galileo” of this generation, and other similar scientists who promoted these valid, researched views:

“I am told that some people have reproduced Benveniste’s results, but they are afraid to publish it because of the intellectual terror from people who don’t understand it.”

When Science Magazine asked if he was supporting “pseudoscience” [i.e. Homeopathy], Montagnier replied: “No, because it’s not pseudoscience. It’s not quackery. These are real phenomena which deserve further study.”

Here’s Montagnier presenting his research to UNESCO:



Based on this and other research, both on this site as well as in scientific and clinical journals and reviews, it is outrageous that many in the scientific community have demonized Homeopathy and declared that there is 0 support for it.

On the contrary:

  • Most, if not all skeptics, do not know or want to know the true aspects and science of Homeopathy and how it really works
  • Though there are negative reviews [like in all medicines], there are way more positive results than negative in the research on Homeopathy.
  • Ironically, the most notable scientists and doctors, such as the ones mentioned above and others, have supported and demonstrated Homeopathy’s science of resonance and practicality.

As people who seek the truth, the only way that false claims can be invalidated is by seeking and promoting the truth. A little bit of light can light up a dark room. Here is another example of that “light”:
