    Author Dr. Cass Ingram reveals how to reverse and prevent bone loss with natural protocols and recipes in his book “The Bone Building Miracle.”

    What has been held impossible has now been proven true; even after degenerating, bone can be re-built. It is rather incredible, but even thinning of the bones, outright osteoporosis, can be reversed”
    — Dr. Cass Ingram The Wilderness Doctor
    FOREST LAKE, IL, UNITED STATES, December 3, 2021 / -- In his book “The Bone Building Miracle”, osteopathic physician and researcher Dr. Cass Ingram explains why our bones, joints, and cartilage break down over time and presents evidence showing that an aging skeletal system can be fortified and regenerated with proper nutrition and supplements. Dr. Ingram also details the protocols he has developed to increase bone density and promote joint health using nutrient-rich foods, raw wild herbs and spices, and powerful mineral extracts.

    “Throughout the Western world, there are countless millions of people who are suffering from degenerative diseases of the bones and joints, such as arthritis, rheumatic diseases, bone cancer, osteoporosis, cartilaginous disorders, and premature fractures,” says Dr. Ingram. “A diet rich in a variety of bone-building nutrients could dramatically reduce the number of these degenerative conditions.”

    Dr. Ingram says the critical age when symptoms of bone loss become more severe appears to be about 50. This is confirmed by the June 2014 National Osteoporosis Foundation publication stating some 54 million American adults 50 and older are affected by this disease, either represented as osteoporosis outright or measurably low bone mass.

    “Who doesn’t know someone suffering from the breakdown of their bones and joints leading to severe pain and inflammation or a breakdown to such a degree that joint replacement is needed,” says Dr. Ingram. “But what has been held impossible has now been proven true; even after degenerating, bone can be re-built. It is rather incredible, but even thinning of the bones, outright osteoporosis, can be reversed.”

    Bone health protocols discussed in the book include:

    • Diet. The best bone-building foods to eat and the foods to avoid.
    • Supplements; including those developed by Dr. Ingram: BoneActiv capsules and BoneActiv rubbing oil
    formulated with raw wild oregano, wild rosemary, wild sage, and organic grass feed beef bones.
    • Exercise. The best exercises to do and how to do them.
    • Recipes for Bone Broth.

    The book details how bone disease and joint breakdown are not inevitable parts of aging - these conditions can be prevented or reversed.

    “Who would have known that the herbs contained in BoneActiv actually can inhibit the breakdown of bone that contributes to osteoporosis,” said BoneActiv user N.A.

    Otzi's Odyssey - The Troubled Soul of a Neolithic Iceman

    Otzi and Ibex

    Otzi the Iceman frozen into the glacial ice

    Neil Perry Gordon's Eight Novel - Just released onto

    Vivid imagery, deft characterization, and entertaining storytelling carry the reader through this suspenseful tale. A haunting, visceral novel will keep the reader awake until they turn the last page.”
    — The Prairies Book Review

    PARK RIDGE, NEW JERSEY, USA, November 27, 2021 / -- Richly researched, ornately plotted… A page-turner.

    Gordon’s latest is a deeply engrossing metaphysical tale of one soul’s journey to redemption. When a mummified man, half frozen in glacial ice, is discovered by two hikers, it’s just the beginning of a treacherous journey into the four demonic realms of Gehenna for the five-thousand-year-old soul of Bhark. Bhark must prepare for a vicious war if he wants to find salvation and redemption of his eternal soul.

    This is an intriguing story, haunting and moving, set in the violent, terrifying world of both living and dead, a world in which soul hunters prey on innocent souls, making them captives for eternity. This is also the story of family bonds, love, revenge, and redemption.

    The novel, narrated by Bhark from the discovery of Ötzi’s body, crisscrosses through time, cutting between past and present. This structure, which might have become a distraction in a novice writer’s hands, adds to the story’s intrigue. Gordon’s vivid imagery, deft characterization, and entertaining storytelling carry the reader through this suspenseful tale. A haunting, visceral novel that will keep the reader awake until they turn the last page.

    A geneticist’s regeneration of Ice Age animals & humans is stolen... becomes the basis for genetic warfare weapons –and the prophesied Resurrection of the Dead!

    REAL genetics potential & ONE prophecy in common among most religions: a regeneration of humanity & nature post-catastrophe. But what nightmare is released? Great for gifts and news for media!”
    — Laura Haas, Publisher
    NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, November 24, 2021 / -- Cloning sheep and chimps was only a beginning.

    Using Fossil Gene Redemption (FGR), geneticist Kevin G. Harrigan experiments with genes from a frozen "Ice Man". His work prompts Iraqi leader, Ishmail Mon, to provide resources for exciting new research that enables Harrigan's team to regenerate extinct “cryptids” and human sub-species from the Ice Ages. But FGR can be the basis for genetic weapons of mass destruction; United States intelligence and defense leaders must act!

    Radically distinct from Jurassic Park, Ancient of Genes shows new megafauna regeneration methods by which the only prophecy held in common among major religions & myth traditions could manifest: Some form of regeneration of human ancestors and megafauna. Once considered junk DNA, personality genes and other traits archive in lineages. These genes await a virus vector that targets meiosis to re-express them in all subsequent generations. This can start a resurrection cascade enabling Mon to ruin enemy genomes, improve his allies’ genes… and inherit the earth.

    Harrigan's frightening choice can lead to redemption… or the terrifying sunset of humanity!

    Ancient of Genes is book 1 in the Ancient Beacon series. Reviews so far followed by prior version reviews:

    A simple view for children merges with an advanced perspective for adults in Return to Eden: A lesson in love for all ages

    Released by The Inner Buddha on Nov 2021, Return to Eden teaches children how to embrace unconditional love, and integrates an advanced view for adults.

    We were inspired to create a guide that would amaze and astound people of all ages. Return to Eden is so simple a child can embrace it, yet the wisdom is what we all seek, even as adults.”
    — Chris T
    PRINCE GEORGE, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, November 24, 2021 / -- Return to Eden was internationally released on November, 2021. It is available on all Amazon sites around the globe, and serves as a complement to the Enlightening Strikes guidebooks for adults.

    'Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems,
    in a world of wonder, a garden of dreams.

    Two beautiful souls that were blessed from above
    delighted in Eden, their home of pure love.

    We all know the tale of Adam and Eve, but did you know it contains the secret to everlasting bliss? After the young couple find themselves outside their garden paradise, they explore the world and discover that Eden was never really gone; it was just hidden by their missing love. They learn the secret to a happy life and come to love all that is, wholly and completely. Adam and Eve then return to Eden, their beautiful garden of dreams.

    Written in prose and delightfully illustrated, Return to Eden is unlike any children’s fable you have ever read. Lessons within the book are expansive, yet presented in a format that small children can understand; the words are gentle, imagery wholesome, and story engaging. Children will be entertained as they are lightly guided to see the goodness in everything, and to embrace their love of this goodness, while adults will grasp the deeper meaning of the words and images. Those who recognize the mistake Adam and Eve made will see that they partook of judgement, the fruit of the tree of good and evil. Exchanging judgement for love ends the confusion judgement results in; this bewilderment has been called the judgement daze in ancient texts. We each return to our version of Eden as we end the daze of judgement through the wholesome embrace of love.

    Return to Eden was nearly a year in the making, with simplified instruction on the viewpoint that makes unconditional love attainable by all. Integrated within children’s illustrations are figures and formulas for adult readers to pick out; they demonstrate the value of unconditional love, and are both spiritually and scientifically valid. These formulas quantify how the wholesome embrace of love leads to forever friendships, business success, joyful abundance, enduring relationships, and even influences the length of our lifespans.

    "We were inspired to create a guide that would amaze and astound people of all ages, but we never anticipated this remarkable final result. Return to Eden is so simple a child can embrace it, yet the wisdom is what we all seek, even as adults” says Chris T, author and CEO of The Inner Buddha.

    People of all schools will marvel at the wonders revealed within Return to Eden. Those of spirituality will see evidence that proves truths of their faith, while those of science will see answers to many of today’s greatest quests. Children will see the path that leads to a joyful life. There truly is something for every reader in this delightful little book.

    Complementing Return to Eden: A lesson in love for all ages, the Enlightening Strikes adult journey begins with Be Your Greatest Self: The Guide to Enlightenment and Legendary Life. After reading this initial guide, adults advance to Redivine Life: Faith for the Logical Mind. This more comprehensive guidebook builds upon the foundations in Be Your Greatest Self, details the figures and formulas revealed in Return to Eden, and finally culminates in a view that leads to the whole sum of wholesome.

    PlayTreks Copyright Control Certificate

    PlayTreks Copyright Control

    easy 1,2,3 process to mint your NFT and claim ownership with PlayTreks

    Meet the growing demand for content protection in the digital world. The all-in-one app announces the release of its latest module, Copyright Control.

    PlayTreks (TREKS:TREKS)

    We secure your content and make you feel safe in the knowledge that your content is secure on the internet, and cannot be altered by anyone”
    — Luca Rushton
    HASSELT, BELGIUM, November 24, 2021 / -- PlayTreks, the ALL IN ONE app for the music industry, with powerful features such as music distribution to traditional streaming platforms and a blockchain-based marketplace, music performance analytics, and much more, officially launches its copyright control module.

    A logical next step for PlayTreks, as they recently released their blockchain-based marketplace and the launch of TREKS, the crypto token of PlayTreks.
    TREKS is a multipurpose token created to be used across the Playtreks platform for finance and utility purposes. TREKS can be used for subscriptions, earnings from royalties, copyright, fan participation, and more.

    With the Copyright Control module, PlayTreks take their All-In-One platform claim to the next level.

    As the name indicates, the Copyright Control module, which can be used stand-alone, or in the PlayTreks app, allows users to register ownership, which is stored in a blockchain smart contract. Registering original content means that copyright is retained by the creator and not assigned to a third party. The copyright is used to indicate that creation, like work/recording, is self-published. As digital media becomes the norm, blockchain technology like Playtreks's Copyright Control can help protect against unauthorized sharing and also help copyright owners audit their royalties.

    As NFTs (non-fungible tokens) are a hot topic in the music, art, and intellectual property domain at the moment, yet still somewhat confusing to the masses, it is clear that NFT's are here to stay because of the unbreakable smart contracts the ownership details are being stored in, as well as the reliance on blockchain technology, foundation of the PlayTreks Copyright Control module and its marketplace.

    The process of creating an NFT through the PlayTreks Copyright Control module is pretty straightforward, as the creator uploads their original content, which upon execution is "minted", resulting in a unique identifier. Through that unique identifier, the creator is assured the information is permanently part of the NFT. Our marketplace allows NFTs to be viewed within the user's collection, and when the creator sells or licenses their work, royalties may automatically be granted. The technology allows for easy tracking of transactions and other events.

    The PlayTreks Copyright Control module innovates the way how creators have registered their ownership to date. The traditional way of submitting content to performance rights organizations can now be handled by the creator minting their work and storing it on the blockchain. This allows the creator to make sure that their work, royalties, and income are in their hands and that no one can take these from them.

    PlayTreks’ CEO Anjo De Heus says: “We secure your content and make you feel safe in the knowledge that your content is secure on the internet, and cannot be removed by anyone”. PlayTreks insures that any creator copyrighting their content can feel safe knowing that the app’s brand new copyright mechanism on the blockchain is controlling and protecting their works.

    With the copyright control function, PlayTreks aims to avoid issues concerning copyright ownership. By embedding the information on the blockchain, clarity is given on who the owner is, or owners for that matter. Having said that, PlayTreks encourage their users to copyright their creations accordingly, meaning that anyone involved must be registered.

    PlayTreks aim to eliminate copyright infringement. What does this mean? It means that any party that has the intention of making use of a copyrighted creation, unless prior approval is given, won’t be legally allowed to do so. Any intention of use and misuse and intention of monetizing will be detected as the information is securely stored on the blockchain. According to J.D. River Braun at Legalzoom, music, image, and text are the most common forms of copyright infringement.

    Once information is stored and secured on the blockchain, PlayTreks provides the copyright owner or owners, with a digital certificate of ownership.
    This comes to prove that proper use of data can solve a lot of illegal activities. It has been known that when copyrights are infringed, they take a lot of time to resolve. Now, PlayTreks solves that issue with blockchain-based Copyright Control.

    The PlayTreks Copyright Control module is available immediately and can be found at

    The Mustangs: America's Wild Horses - Available on VOD

    The award-winning documentary from Executive Producer Robert Redford is now available on VOD, including Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Vudu, Google Play & Vimeo

    Horses are interwoven into the very fabric of what is America. What threatens them threatens us all.”
    — Robert Redford
    LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 23, 2021 / -- “The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses,” an award-winning feature documentary executive produced by Robert Redford, Patti Scialfa Springsteen and Jessica Springsteen, is now available on VOD platforms, including:

    Amazon Prime:

    Google Play:

    Apple TV:



    “The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses” takes audiences on an odyssey throughout America to places few people have seen or even know about. There are more than 80,000 wild horses on our public lands and more than 50,000 in government corrals.

    “America’s wild horses are fighting their last stand,” said Executive Producer Robert Redford. “Increasing competition for our natural resources threatens our wilderness areas, our wild horses and other wildlife species. Horses are interwoven into the very fabric of what is America. What threatens them threatens us all.”

    The film features music by Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris and the original song “Never Gonna Tame You,” written by iconic songwriter Diane Warren and performed by Platinum-selling artist Blanco Brown.

    "The Mustangs" is told as an American adventure. Centered around the history and current situation of these iconic animals, the film features an array of stories about individuals and groups that are working with wild horses, including an organization that pairs mustangs and veterans with PTSD. Other stories include a photographer that documents wild horses on the range, a group that helps manage population growth with fertility control, the legacy of a woman named “Wild Horse Annie” who mobilized an army of children 50 years ago to protect wild horses and save them from the brink of extinction and a sanctuary that reunites mustangs that were rounded up in the wild. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Philipps, who is featured in the film, says, "The wild horse is so ingrained in the American imagination that even for those who have never seen one know what it stands for: fierce independence, unbridled freedom, the bedrock ideals of the nation. From car ads to high school mascots, the wild horse - popularly known as the mustang - is the enduring icon of America. But in modern times it has become entangled in controversy and bureaucracy, and now its future is in question."

    “America’s wild horses represent freedom, strength and resilience,” said Producer and Co-Director Steven Latham. “This film takes audiences on an exciting journey; a journey that we as filmmakers went on, to understand the challenges the Mustang faces to thrive in a changing world.”

    The film won Best Documentary at the Houston WorldFest and the LA Film Festival and won the Audience Choice Award at the San Diego Film Festival.

    Official Trailer:

    “The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses” is produced by Steven Latham Productions, distributed by Virgil Films, directed by Steven Latham and Conrad Stanley, co-produced by Diane Warren, cinematography by Brian Pratt and edited by Conrad Stanley.

    December 17, 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of The Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, which gave them federal protection.

    In partnership with her co-author Mr. Martin, Ms. Lackey created the fascinating universe of Reboots for Arc Manor for the Stellar Guild program. This quirky universe includes all sorts of creatures, like werewolves and zombies, living side-by-side with humans. Just like humans, they are dealing with real-world problems, such as jobs, relationships, and all their insecurities and anxieties. The original works have now been expanded into the episodic novel REBOOTS: UNDEAD CAN DANCE.

    This “unfettered oddball entertainment” (Publishers Weekly) is full of fascinatingly quirky characters like Fred the Werewolf; Skinny Jim, who conceals his ability to speak to avoid being exterminated; and Humph the Boggart, an ethereal parahuman private investigator who navigates interspecies relationships in claustrophobic extraterrestrial environments.

    Ms. Lackey and Mr. Martin have created a perfect, witty, fast-paced read that the reader will not be able to put down until the last page—and then will crave more.

    CAEZIK SF & Fantasy (an imprint of Arc Manor) is publishing the eBook version of Reboots: Undead Can Dance on November 30, with the hardcover being released on December 14, just in time for Christmas.

  • Immunity Boosting Depoliticized In Best-selling Book

    Vitamins D and K2

    Simplifying The Covid Puzzle

    “Simplifying The COVID Puzzle” Explores Overall Health Benefits Of 2 Key Vitamins

    We simply and clearly explore how vitamins D and K2 act as a low-risk, proactive supplement combination.”
    — Dr. Andrew Myers & Dr.
    WASHINGTON, DC, USA, November 19, 2021 / -- As we enter cold and flu season and see a rise nationally in COVID 19 infections, the best-selling book, Simplifying The COVID Puzzle, uses science based evidence in a goal to help de-politicize the COVID 19 debate and offer up tools for overall health by exploring in-depth benefits of immunity boosting of the human body.

    Emphasizing the use of 2 key essential vitamins, D and K2, Simplifying The COVID Puzzle, Doctors Grace McComsey and Andrew Myers, who have been at the forefront of SARS-CoV-2 research show that while they don’t prevent COVID-19, these two vitamins can help your immune system better deal with the disease. Studies have shown that serious COVID-19 issues, alongside cold and flu symptoms, have been linked to deficiencies in vitamins D and K2.

    The advice offered up here is presented in a way that allows it to be helpful to any person, Democrat or Republican, Pro or Anti vaccine. What is not up for debate here is that our physical health is something we all need to be aware of and be proactive with, especially as we enter a holiday season with increased social interaction.

    Dr. McComsey and Dr. Myers are available to discuss the book and answer some key questions including:

    Why a robust, competent immune system is key to overall health?

    How do these 2 specific key supplements work specifically to help our bodies?

    What is the importance of immunity boosting post COVID?

    How to depoliticize the debate around our physical wellness, in order to create a healthier self?
