The basics of taking care of yourself — drinking plenty of water, eating fresh and healthy foods on the periphery of the grocery store (and not the aisles), staying active, and making time for sleep — will always win out over the most recent miracle-working snake oil on the market.
Most Americans are brainwashed by the medical establishment. They believe that the only relief available to them comes from a pill.
At the first sign of a medical issue they turn to allopathic doctors who are mostly just pill pushers for Big Pharma. But there are dozens of herbs and spices that are recognized as having the ability to naturally set our bodies back aright when the natural functions get out of whack. Here are five.
Emails obtained through a public records request reveal how Big Pharma, supposed independent researchers and the Food and Drug Administration are involved in a pay-for-play scheme involving drug trials and research.
The emails show that a scientific panel that shaped FDA policy for testing the safety and effectiveness of painkillers required $25,000 fees from drug manufacturers to attend the panel’s meetings. The panel, led by two academics, provided advice to the FDA on how to weigh evidence from clinical trials.
Certain jobs demand a high level of emotional intelligence and the ability to understand what others are feeling. For instance, if you are involved in sales, comprehending how others react to your pitch can spell the difference between success and failure. And a study shows that reading the right kind of book can sharpen your ability to read what other people are thinking.
Junk food is addictive.
A recent study by PubMed shows how foods with high glycemic index alter parts of the brain responsible for hunger, thirst and the natural rhythms and body cycles.

I am a 71 year old male and a subscriber to your newsletter. Thanks for all of your great info, much appreciated.
A couple months ago you mentioned in one of your monthly newsletters that you were suffering from snoring and sleep apnea.
I too went through the same remedies that you are using. I shifted my diet early this year (“Eat to Live” by Joel Furhman) and as a consequence stopped eating wheat products. Voila! No more snoring or apnea. Period. My girlfriend loves it!
I suggest that you stop wheat products for a month and see what happens. I would also check out other areas where wheat (gluten) lurks. Celiac disease sites are a good start.
Dropping wheat (gluten) does not work for everyone re snoring and apnea.
Google ‘snoring and gluten’ intolerance and you will find many articles.
I wish that someone, including my doctors, had turned me on to this possibility.
Best of luck.
