Your help is needed today to fight the rapid spread of Ebola in West Africa.

Ebola is a highly contagious, deadly virus to which there is currently no vaccine or cure. It is very important to stop the spread, before the virus rages out of control.

Health services are overwhelmed by the outbreak, with many health workers having been infected and a large number having died. Mothers and children are unable to access much-needed health services for treatment of malaria, diarrhea, or even childbirth. Markets have closed making it difficult to access food. A large humanitarian crisis is looming.

World Vision is working urgently to protect children and their families, by educating communities about how to stop the spread of the virus, as well as providing protective equipment. But with your help we can do more. 

World Vision CanadaThrough World Vision Canada, Ms. Johnson initiates charitable causes that serve to stop the spread of disease at its core.

Donna York, President of HARK Inc., Announces Screenings of Hope on the Horizon: An Expedition for ALS

HARK logoAt the helm of HARK Inc. Donna York has long been pushing to raise awareness of the disease that has stricken families and friends across the nation, and taken the lives of many beloved individuals. ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a condition that is often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. Since its establishment, the organization has made tremendous strides through the production of “Hope on the Horizon: An Expedition for ALS,” a documentary that premiered on November 9, 2013 in the private screening room of NBC Universal.

From the website:

The 48 highest peaks in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, also known as the “4000 footers”, cover over 250 miles of various terrain and over 70,000 feet of elevation. Four hikers, including the filmmaker, set out to summit all 48 in a single trip on foot, two completed the journey and reached the 48th summit in 24 days to raise awareness and funding for ALS patients and their families.

HARK’s Hope on the Horizon Documentary is the first step in “Changing the way the world views ALS” and ensuring that the world knows what the disease is and how devastating it is to families that are affected by it. As we navigated our way through ALS we realized the severe lack of awareness that existed about this disease outside of the ALS community.

Hope on the Horizon is not just about ALS, it’s about facing life’s challenges with courage and overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds every day. The documentary will bring viewers a firsthand view of two sets of challenges simultaneously. The challenges of negotiating the fragile beauty and rugged terrain of the White Mountains serves as a compelling backdrop to show true challenges and hardships faced by ALS victims and their loved ones in dealing with this devastating disease.

Through this film HARK will change the way the world views ALS, increase awareness of this fatal disease and raise funding to provide financial assistance to ALS patients and their families as they face a challenge far greater than the White Mountains.

Screenings will be held soon! Don’t forget to get your tickets, bring your family and friends, and join Ms. York and her team of dedicated professionals. Below, please find the list of upcoming screenings:

Dr. Michael Sichel Shares Information about HPV Vaccine’s Adverse Effects

Michael Sichel, DO, NDWorldwide Branding member Michael Sichel, DO, ND, recently shared one of the tens of thousands of stories of adverse events that occur after HPV vaccination , which are occurring globally.

As you read this story please keep in mind the following facts:

1) A criminal court case against the Merck-Sanofi Pasteur Laboratories and the Spanish health authorities is currently being held in Spain and many court cases are in progress in France and India regarding the harm caused by this vaccine. This vaccine has also been removed from some national vaccination programs including Japan and India due to a lack of knowledge of their safety and efficacy.

2) The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that Pap screening is the safest and most effective prevention for cervical cancer. Early detection of abnormal cells allows for them to be removed to prevent any progression to cancer. However, the WHO does not recommend Pap screening before 26 years of age because abnormalities in young women are known to naturally regress and in most cases never lead to cancer later in life. Cervical cancer occurs in women over 30 years of age. The majority of high-grade (CIN 3) lesions in women under 26 years of age regress naturally and are not a predictor of cancer later in life. This is why Pap screening is not needed in women under 26 years of age. Cervical cancer is a very low risk in women in Australia because the risk factors for this disease are not prevalent.

Here is one of many stories of adverse events after HPV vaccination that is occurring globally:

“Courtney’s Mum: The decision I will always regret”

Wendy Barnes Early wants to share her daughter Courtney’s story and what happened to her after receiving the Gardasil vaccine – thankfully only one shot.

“In the summer of 2012, I took my daughter to her Pediatrician for her routine annual exam. Her doctor strongly recommended that Courtney receive Gardasil because they highly recommend this vaccine for teens. Within 3-4 weeks after Courtney had her first and only Gardasil vaccine, she complained of headaches daily, extreme fatigue, and nausea. She had little to no energy which was NOT like my daughter. She became very moody, irritable and almost depressed. Soon she was complaining about not wanting to eat, muscle weakness and tremors. Her hands would shake uncontrollably, along with her legs. I noticed at times her hands would look mottled, then turn purple/blue in color. If you have ever seen a person after they pass, this is what her hands looked like. This truly scared me as I am a nurse by profession and I felt like I was watching my sweet outgoing daughter deteriorate.

After going through many, many tests Courtney was eventually diagnosed – then we met with her case doctor, she diagnosed Courtney with ‘Autonomic Dysfunction.’ This is a neurologic disease that they are also seeing more of. She has been placed on a high salt diet, drinking a lot of fluids especially water, placed on an exercise regime, and she takes a prescription for this 3 times daily.

She was full of life UNTIL she received her first and only Gardasil vaccine and this is a decision I regret every second of every day – if only I could turn back the clock!

Michael Sichel, DO, ND advises Worldwide Branding of the many stories of adverse events after HPV vaccination that are occurring globallyTherefore, to all the families out there who are thinking about having their daughters vaccinated with Gardasil please, please be careful, do your own research and see the high number of young ladies and guys who are experiencing serious health issues following vaccination. You have a healthy child one day and after being vaccinated with Gardasil, or Cervarix, this healthy child is no more. They develop unexplained health issues which more than often are misdiagnosed and in many cases a finger is pointed at them that their condition is ‘psychosomatic.’  Please believe me your child is sick and requires medical attention – never allow anyone to try and make this out to be a mental health issue. What happened to my daughter I know, and believe, that her symptoms were caused by Gardasil.”

Click here to read Courtney’s story

Please take the time to visit the Sanevax (Safe, Affordable, Necessary and Effective Vaccines) website to investigate Gardasil (HPV vaccine) before consenting to its use in children in school vaccination programs. Please also inform the health department of any problems your child notices after having this vaccine.

Jennifer A. Moumane, MA Looks to Publish Book and Bring Fresh Water to Tiflet, Morocco in 2015

Within the upcoming year, Jennifer A. Moumane, Director of Annual Giving and Database Management for the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland, intends to print and circulate her dissertation, which focuses on famous works of art that were found at the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, a city that stood between the 11th and 15th century, and flourished exceedingly before its enigmatic decline. Ms. Moumane, a Worldwide Branding member and Nonprofit Fundraising Professional of the Year, is also an award-winning community leader and an expert in technology, nonprofit management and resourcing, who plans to conduct research on the eight mystifying soapstone birds that were located in the ruins, which scholars have said functioned as emblems of royal authority, or perhaps represented the ancestors of Great Zimbabwe’s leaders. These important artifacts exist as prized symbols of a nation; monuments that link the present with the past.

In addition to her upcoming book, Ms. Moumane and her husband Driss will be digging a well that will bring fresh water to the local community of Tiflet, Morocco in the upcoming year. Just outside of the capital city of Rabat, Tiflet is rich with ancient history, and has a population of just over 70,000 people. Because fresh drinking water is a scarce necessity, Ms. Moumane looks forward to lending a helping hand to those who do not readily have access to clean water by digging the fresh water well and establishing lasting relationships with those who will use and maintain it, as she hopes that the well will make a positive difference in their lives.

Aurora Juliana Ariel, PhD has Found the Cause of Suffering and Created a Remedy. Committed to Helping Humanity Actualize its Full Potential and Attain Sustainability in an Ecologically Balanced World, her Earth Vision Center will Showcase Timely Advances, Healing Remedies and more!

Aurora Juliana Ariel, PhD

Aurora Juliana Ariel PhD seeks empowers those who have experienced trauma, helping them to clear their subconscious, and enables others to achieve sustainability

As head of the Institute of Advanced Healing, TheQuest University, Earth Vision Foundation, and AEOS, Dr. Aurora Juliana Ariel reveals her sophisticated background in psychology and her knowledge that people around the globe are unaware of the subconscious patterns, which control and dictate every aspect of their lives.

Through years of pioneering work, she discovered that it is our subconscious patterns that create all the suffering on Earth, continually causing havoc in our lives and on the planet. And…there is an easy and effective cure. It is her belief that within 10 years, ‘Mental Illness’ will become an obsolete diagnosis, removing that stigma forever. Instead, doctors will immediately recognize brain chemistry disorders are in play that can be addressed quickly and effectively, bringing about a cure.

This work is already being done by pioneering doctors like her, who are paving a way for greater health for all humanity. Along with proper nutrition, brain balancing supplementation, and psychotherapy healing the underlying patterns, individuals suffering greatly can now attain harmony and stability in their lives.

Dr. Ariel promotes the repositioning of subconscious patterns, which leads to happier and healthier lifestyles

Dr. Ariel promotes the repositioning of subconscious patterns, which leads to happier and healthier lifestyles

Dr. Ariel has found many applications for her life’s work. Abused women who have been locked in a cycle of abuse can now be free by healing the underlying causes of distress, and disabling the subconscious wiring that was developed through early childhood abuse, which has relegated them to a life of immense suffering at the hands of their abusers. Once the subconscious programming is healed, the person’s fate changes—and they are able to naturally draw in a healthy mate. Youth at Risk and young adults can now heal their lives and step into a happier more fulfilled and promising future. Individuals riddled with low self esteem adversely affecting their life, finances and career, can easily restore their self confidence and lead empowered successful lives. Healing for all these conditions and more will be available at the Advanced Healing Center at Lemuria Rising.

Years of preparation have gone into Dr. Ariel’s Earth Vision Center Project. A main focus will be the cutting edge Healing Center that will quickly restore people to Optimum Health and Lifestyles, so that they can realize their full potential and bring their contribution to the world.

Imagine this: You arrive at a spectacular eco hotel on a gorgeous island in the South Pacific and feel like you’ve stepped into the future. You quickly realize this place is completely sustainable, supported by a wide array of advances in every field. Soon, you check into the cutting edge Healing Center, where you are scanned and addressed by a host of experts. You are then put on an Optimum Health and Lifestyle Program with healing modalities immediately in play, to bring you into Optimum Radiant Health quickly. As you enjoy this program, you exercise, eat wonderful foods, have lots of spa and other treatments, and see specialists that can help move you quickly into living your best life. You are taken with others on an excursion around the island to see what has been accomplished and how sustainability is possible. Everything is on the cutting edge, from agriculture and soil replenishing, to water purification and green technologies which power the site.

As funding comes together and the last pieces come into place, this vast humanitarian endeavor will soon be underway with Dr. Ariel at the helm. Lemuria Rising, the first Earth Vision Center (http://www.lemuriarising.com) project through the Earth Vision Foundation, will be a living library of the advances of our time, with a sustainable eco resort and cutting-edge healing center that will uplift, inspire, heal and transform countless lives, who then can make a difference to our planet.
