If you’ve never eaten collard greens (considered a Southern specialty), then you just might want to try them if you know what’s good for you. They are an all-around nutritional superstar, rich in lutein and zeaxanthin — antioxidants that studies show may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, a common cause of blindness.
Can you really “catch” happiness from another person? Absolutely! A study reported in the British Medical Journal showed that happiness is contagious — more contagious than sadness — and the more happy people you are acquainted with, the happier you will be.
If you want to be healthier and happier, you should practice gratitude and treat it just like exercising. The more often you do it and with more intensity, the greater benefit it can have on your health.
The effects of increased thanks given to friends, family or co-workers can boost your overall heart and brain health.
Can “the plant that ate the South” really be beneficial to those suffering from the excruciating neurological disease called cluster headaches, aka suicide headaches? Sure, it can, according to a report that appeared in the medical journal Headache, written by R. Andrew Sewell, M.D. of Yale University of Medicine in Connecticut. Sewell found kudzu can be used in many safe and natural alternative remedies for your worst health problems.
In a survey of patients with cluster headaches who used kudzu treatments, the majority reported a decrease in the frequency of attacks. Plus, more than one-third of the patients had a decrease in the length of attacks.
There is a reason Americans are fat and sick. It’s called high fructose corn syrup.
High fructose corn syrup is a cheap non-food filler. It contains no nutrition — only calories. It is, as a report in The Guardian describes, a highly sweet, gloppy syrup produced from surplus corn that is incredibly sweet.
In ancient Egypt honey was used to help heal cuts and burns. Hippocrates used it on skin problems. Romans used it for cleansing wounds.
Now, centuries later, scientists are discovering that this prized bee product can be good modern medicine — especially as a dressing to prevent burns and wounds from becoming infected. One study published in the Cochrane Library showed that honey may promote faster healing of mild or moderate burns than regular dressings, and other studies have shown that honey can aid in healing wounds.
You can make a potion from three natural ingredients that will help relax your restless legs, ease joint and muscle pain and aid your digestion. Big Pharma is yet to make a pill that can match it.
Mix a potion of apple cider vinegar, honey and water, and you’ll relax and sleep better. You can also throw away that purple pill that’s damaging your stomach.
The study of the human immune system is critical to longevity. Longevity (aging with health) is directly related to quality of life.
American conventional medicine teaches and understands the anatomy of the immune system, but American doctors do not practice preventive medicine. They practice symptomology, i.e. they “doctor” symptoms after the patient is already sick.
Healthcare in America is actually deathcare. It’s a big-dollar racket that fosters unnecessary pain, suffering and death.
Physicians are said to be practicing medicine. They’re always practicing and rarely getting it right. This is partly because of the chemical agents of death created by the pharmaceutical companies — and endorsed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — which are always seeking a “cure” for the latest disease: seeking but never finding. Physicians are brainwashed by their pharmaceutical cartel-controlled medical schools and bought off by drug manufacturers.
Natural sea salt is the elixir of life and fundamental to the biological processes.
- It is a major component of blood plasma.
- It carries nutrients into and out of the cells.
- It helps the lining of the blood vessels to regulate blood pressure. (It is sugar that causes high blood pressure.)
- It helps regulate the propagation of nerve impulses.
- It helps the brain send communication signals to the muscles so the body moves and coordinates (sodium-potassium ion exchange).
- Very importantly, sea salt alkalizes the pH of the body, which is very important for total health.
- Adequate natural sea salt restricts the intake (desire) for fructose (sugar).
