Health Tips


Try Mood-Boosting Herbs To Calm Stress

Feeling stressed? Try rhodiola—an herb that is classified as an “adaptogen.” This means it can help normalize your body’s response to stress. After taking rhodiola for 10 weeks, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) study patients experienced a 50 percent reduction in symptoms such as worry, tension, fatigue and headaches. Other herbs in this mood-boosting […]

Herbal Tea Can Help To Lower Blood Pressure

An herbal tea containing hibiscus can help lower your blood pressure, according to Tufts University in Boston. Study patients who drank hibiscus tea blends for six weeks lowered their systolic blood pressure—the top number—by an average of seven points. Overall, this can help you avoid the risk of stroke or heart attack. The good news […]

Vitamin C For Better Skin

Healthy foods can help satisfy and nourish you—both inside and out. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, fruits and vegetables high in vitamin C can help with fight wrinkles and age-related dry skin. Try this smoothie mask: Blend one cup of strawberries, raspberries or blueberries, with one cup plain or vanilla yogurt and […]

Try Legumes For Cholesterol Control

To help control your cholesterol, try adding legumes—or beans—like chickpeas, pinto, kidney, lima, garbanzo, lentil and Northern beans. Findings from Tulane University suggest eating three cups of beans a week may help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol levels. In one study of 300 men and women, patients who ate a legume-rich diet dropped, on average, 14 […]

The Color of Your Food and Drink Makes a Difference

A simple change in the color of your foods and beverages could make a big impact on your health, according to dietician Julie Upton. “The pigments that give plants their color also provide the antioxidants that protect against heart disease, inflammation and certain cancers.” Try swapping your white grapefruit juice for pink.

Calcium, Irritability and Convulsions

Convulsions in infants and small children occur when plasma calcium (ionic form, calcium lactate) is decreased by 50 percent. Evidence is irritability and twitching, leading to convulsions and a trip to the emergency room where a sedating drug is given—instead of ionizable calcium which is required to correct the condition. Growing children need calcium lactate […]

Understanding Your Acid-Alkaline Balance

As newborn babies, we are full of alkaline reserves and our metabolism moves smoothly and cleanly. When we die, we rapidly turn to acid waste. Alkalinity is health, longevity, and quality of life. Acidity, in simple terms, and in the minds of natural health practitioners, means sickness and death. When I see a patient with […]

Programmed Cell Death

Our cells, if healthy, are programmed to die a natural death within a certain time. This process is called “apoptosis.” When our cells grow wild and don’t die on time, we have cancer. Iodine promotes apoptosis or normal cell death. But the "required daily allowance (RDA) is not enough for iodine dependent tissues of the […]

Sugars and Grains Lead to Weight Gain and Problems With Your Bones

When leptin and insulin are disrupted with a diet of sugar and grain there is a miscommunication in the body about where to store excess fat.
