The Herb That Fights The Flu

The Herb That Fights The Flu

Apr 22, 2014 by

Every year, the flu causes pain and suffering around the world, infecting 3 million to 5 million people and causing up to 500,000 deaths annually. But researchers at Georgia State University's Institute for Biomedical Sciences have found a common herb that helps prevent and treat the illness. In research coordinated between Georgia and South Korea, scientists discovered that ginseng is useful for fending off influenza and the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), a pathogen that attacks the lungs and breathing passages. The lab research shows that red ginseng extract helps human lung epithelial cells infected with the influenza virus survive infection. Also, red ginseng extract can...

Help Your Body Resist Lyme Disease

Apr 22, 2014 by

Spring has arrived with new growth around us. But that means tick season has also arrived in most parts of the country (April to September). With Lyme Disease Awareness Month coming up in May, now is a good time to discuss Lyme’s causes, complications and treatments. It’s estimated that Lyme disease strikes 20,000 to 30,000 people each year, mostly in the northeast and northwest United States, as well as in Minnesota and Wisconsin. However, Lyme disease is believed to be present in all 50 states. If detected early, the infection can be treated with a heavy round of antibiotics. However, delayed diagnosis and treatment can lead to a chronic, degenerative and highly debilitating...
The Toxin In Your Water That Reduces IQ

The Toxin In Your Water That Reduces IQ

Apr 15, 2014 by

Had your drinking water tested lately? Research at Columbia University shows that a widespread toxin found in water can hurt memory and intelligence. When the Columbia scientists looked at three school districts in Maine, they found that children exposed to arsenic in drinking water from household wells suffered from declines in their intelligence and IQ scores. The scientists examined 272 children in grades 3-5, who were, on average, 10 years old, who lived in Maine and whose families used wells for their drinking water and cooking. The area around Augusta was studied because other studies showed the presence of arsenic in this location. "Even though purchasing a standard filter...
Saltwater Flush For Detox

Saltwater Flush For Detox

Apr 05, 2014 by

Some folks may debate the benefits of detoxing by cleaning out the digestive tract, but almost no one denies the necessity of defending yourself against the toxins running rampant in our contaminated environment. For my own health, I have two reliable methods for detoxing. The first is my basic, paleo diet. By eliminating processed food, I cleanse my meals and my digestive system of the troublesome chemicals food companies love to inject into addictive junk food. I also avoid grains, soy, legumes (peanuts and beans) and dairy products. Clean Feeling Of A Saltwater Flush The second detox I use is my occasional saltwater flush. It’s easy, relatively quick and very effective. Makes me...
The Thyroid Toxin All Around Us

The Thyroid Toxin All Around Us

Apr 02, 2014 by

The toxins in our homes and workplaces represent a serious threat to health. A study in Taiwan shows that a chemical widely used in the products you handle every day can impair your thyroid function. Our exposure to toxins called perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs), used to make carpet, paper coatings, fabric, nonstick cooking pans and cosmetics, can slow your thyroid function and increase the chances of hypothyroidism in women. Hypothyroidism Symptoms This thyroid problem can cause weight gain, depression, fatigue, feelings of cold, dry skin and hair, menstrual irregularities, and constipation. The study shows that women with an increased blood level of a PFC called perfluorooctanoate...

The Herbs And Spring Detox That Help Fight Diabetes

Apr 01, 2014 by

Our bodies evolved by developing sophisticated mechanisms that help us adapt to changes in diet, lifestyle and the environment. But what happens when too many negative influences impact our health all at once? Unhealthy foods, an overload of environmental toxins and a sedentary lifestyle can challenge our health so overwhelmingly, the body can’t adapt well enough. Our complex biological mechanisms can start to misfire, and we have trouble maintaining the biochemical balance needed for optimal health. As a result, a number of chronic illnesses can start to develop. Diabetes is a classic example. I will explain the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes in just a moment. But...
Eliminate Constipation, Part 4

Eliminate Constipation, Part 4

Mar 31, 2014 by

Constipation can be a serious issue. To solve it and help you stay healthy, it’s important to take a deep look at bowel and body cleansing as a way to eliminate causes of constipation and the progression of chronic diseases. The Toxic Load And Constipation Connection Reversing constipation permanently can become more than just a simple fix. As I’ve pointed out previously, consuming larger quantities of dietary fiber should offer a significant long-term improvement. If fiber doesn’t reverse your constipation, there are many natural and prescription medicines to get your bowels moving. However, you may still be plagued with constipation. And unless you can cleanse your...
Natural Ways To Cope With Autoimmune Problems

Natural Ways To Cope With Autoimmune Problems

Mar 28, 2014 by

As amazing as our bodies are, they are not able to completely withstand the onslaught of assaults imposed by modern life. The Standard American Diet, our fast-paced lifestyles and, in particular, widespread toxin exposure, have fueled a group of serious health epidemics often listed together under the umbrella of “Western diseases.” And autoimmune disease is quickly climbing to the top of this list. Autoimmune (AI) diseases, of which there are more than 100 types, are all characterized by overactive, inflammatory and self-destructive immune responses. Essentially, the immune system turns against the body, wreaking havoc by attacking organs and tissues. And so far, there are no known...
Heal Yourself With Food

Heal Yourself With Food

Mar 25, 2014 by

March is National Nutrition Month, and with the arrival of the spring season, now is a great time to clean your diet and add momentum to your healing. The Western diet places heavy emphasis on commercial animal proteins and processed, grain-based carbohydrates that have a low nutritional value. This way of eating is often referred to as the Standard American Diet (SAD) -- a fitting acronym. In addition to drug-filled animal products and pesticide-laden produce, the SAD is often full of processed food toxins, packaging chemicals, estrogen-mimicking compounds, residual heavy metals and artificial and highly refined ingredients. Over time, this type of diet can produce a chronic...

The Best Kind Of Pain-Free Revitalizing Cleanse

Mar 18, 2014 by

What do you think of when you hear the words “detox” or “cleanse”?  If you think of extreme hunger, fatigue, invasive procedures and endless trips to the bathroom, it’s likely that you or someone you know has experienced a dreaded detox crisis. Sadly, people often feel worse on a “quick-fix” cleanse, with symptoms that are aggravated rather than improved. Many believe this process to be an inevitable aspect of any detoxification program where you must temporarily feel worse before feeling better. Detox Without Side Effects In my practice, patients -- even some with advanced diseases -- successfully undergo detoxification without side effects of fatigue, hunger,...
