Vanquish Sugar Addiction Naturally (and Painlessly) with these Tips

Sugar addiction is a subtle and insidious dependency that creeps up completely unnoticed. Unknowingly consumed in processed food or a seemingly harmless meal out, sugar is everywhere. In fact, the average American ingests 150 pounds of refined sugar a year — the equivalent of five tons throughout a lifetime. Don’t be fooled. Simply because sugar is a widespread, accepted substance, doesn’t mean it is anymore innocuous than morphine or heroin. It is just as addictive, if not more so. But there is hope. With a few dietary and lifestyle changes, sugar dependency can be tamed and healthy well-being restored. Continue reading

What You Eat May Be Ruining Your Sleep

Today’s health news concerns a certain waste product produced by your body when you digest foods. It’s called uric acid, and it’s formed when your body breaks down purine—a substance found in organ meats and some types of fish. Normally, uric acid is carried in your blood, passes through your kidneys, Continue reading

Following a Trail of Blood: a New Diagnostic Tool Comes of Age

Blood tests have been a mainstay of diagnostic medicine since the late 19th century, offering a wealth of information concerning health and disease. Nevertheless, blood derived from the human umbilical cord has yet to be fully mined for its vital health information, according to Rolf Halden, a researcher at Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute.

In a new study appearing in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, Halden’s team performs detailed analyses of umbilical cord blood (UCB), identifying a total of 1,210 proteins using mass spectroscopy. The findings represent a 6-fold increase in the number UCB proteins thus far described—a significant advance: Continue reading

Don’t Have Faulty Ideas about Salt

By now just about everybody’s heard that we should cut back on salt to avoid high blood pressure, heart disease and other physiological complications. But that advice is wrongheaded and simplistic. Getting too little salt can be as harmful as getting too much. The fact is you need just the right amount of salt and the right kind of salt to protect your health.

Salty Revelation

In November, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published a revelatory paper discussing the relationship of sodium imbalances with cardiovascular events like heart attack, stroke and congestive heart failure among hospitalized patients. One of the findings confirmed a correlation between these problems and having higher or lower sodium levels than the American average of 4,000 to 6,500 mg of sodium a day.

From their analyses, the researchers came up with a J-shaped curve demonstrating that people had cardiovascular problems when they had high and low salt consumption. Continue reading

How to Detox Aluminum and why it’s Necessary

We are in the “Age of Aluminum”, this according to a lecture by Dr. Chris Exley, PhD at a January 2011 vaccine safety conference in Jamaica. A common expression among those who deflect aluminum’s toxicity issues is that aluminum is prominent throughout the earth’s crust. What they fail to mention is that aluminum (Al) wasn’t widely bioavailable to humans until the latter part of the 19th Century when it began to be mined for creating metals and medicines.

Now we have aluminum appearing in cookware, wrapping foils, beverage and food containers, underarm deodorants, tobacco, over the counter (OTC) and prescribed medicines, and as adjuvants in vaccines. Al is highly reactive with other chemicals and creates antigens to stimulate immune system antibody responses in vaccines. But the mechanics of these reactions are not understood by Big Pharma.

Six Tips to Better Breathing

Here I enter the vault of health secrets within Chinese medicine. Here I pull forth six ways you can distribute oxygen efficiently throughout the body. This is essential in maintaining your health, and avoiding what many people believe is the world’s biggest cause of disease: oxygen deficiency.

In Chinese medicine, oxygen is known as “yang” and “Qi.” That makes sense, because there are parallels between these concepts and oxygen: they clear blockages, energize the body, and overcome any stagnant parts of the blood flow. Every cell needs oxygen, and the brain, heart, and liver wouldn’t exist without it.

Here are six ideas to consider when boosting your body’s natural distribution of oxygen.

1. Breathe well: Get your lungs to the kind of air they love to breathe. In busy urban centers, the air quality is lower and the amount of oxygen in the air is around 10%. (As you can see, most of what we breathe is not oxygen.) In rural settings, outside of the hubs, oxygen content is generally around 20%. If you don’t live in a rural area, take frequent trips out there for a hike or a picnic and allow your body to soak up the oxygen.

2. Limit toxins: This comes in the form of limiting meat in your diet, and avoiding big meals. Try to spread out your meals throughout the day, Continue reading

Five Hidden Causes of Digestive Trouble

Sometimes, when trying to ascertain the state of your natural health, it takes understanding the hidden triggers of any symptoms you have. On that note, let’s take a peek at five hidden reasons you might be experiencing digestive problems.

1. Fructose Intolerance
This is a hereditary disorder in which your body cannot metabolize fructose (a sugar molecule), resulting in its build-up in the liver, kidneys, and intestines. It causes abdominal pain and vomiting. You might suspect there is a fructose problem should you experience these symptoms continually after eating foods that claim it as an ingredient. For a diagnosis, see your doctor. The cure here is to avoid fructose and steer clear of sucrose and sorbitol, two related sugars. Gather nutritional information to see which foods are safe. A small list of safe foods includes milk, eggs, most meat, poultry, fish, asparagus, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, green beans, green peppers, salad greens, potatoes, spaghetti, butter, margarine, olive oil, coffee & tea, vegetable juice, and soups.

2. Gallstones
As many as one in 12 Americans Continue reading

How much Water Should we Drink?

Remaining properly hydrated is vital to being optimally well. Dehydration, or lack of proper water in the body, can lead to dozens of ailments and pains and even disease.

It is argued, the bottled-water industry tries to make us believe drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day is necessary for health.

“We may not be as dehydrated as bottled-water makers would have us believe,” reported Betsy McKay in The Wall Street Journal. McKay’s comment was in response to a peer-review study that “found no evidence to support the vigorously promoted assertion that drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day (known as the “8×8” rule) is essential to good health.”

Water Rules

In questioning the origin and necessity of the 8×8 water rule, the American Journal of Physiology asked Heinz Valtin, M.D., to undertake a rigorous literature review to ascertain the scientific proof for the daily drinking of 64 ounces of water. Valtin was the go-to physiologist for this project, as he has been active in the field for decades and has written several textbooks on the kidneys and water balance. Continue reading

Restoring Sexual Function Using a Traditional Chinese Medicine Approach

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) takes a holistic approach to improving sexual performance. By boosting your “essence of life,” TCM rebalances your internal forces and restores libido in ways that acknowledge the interconnections of all the aspects of your health.

TCM views the human body as an organic whole. As such, the various parts of the body are inseparable in structure; individual organ functions are related to and influenced by the function of other organs, the mind, physical actions and the environment. Nothing is viewed as separate. Although many Westerners have difficulty grasping TCM’s strange vocabulary, its techniques are of great benefit. Continue reading

Natural Remedies for Alcohol Withdrawal

Some people are prone to become alcoholics at the first drink. For others, it takes time to become dependent upon alcohol. Either way, the only way to become dependent upon alcohol is to drink. There is no other way.

Alcohol Withdrawal Remedies

Nobody ever plans to get hooked on alcohol…and remember alcohol is alcohol…beer, wine, whiskey… it’s all the same…. Binge drinking is the most severe sign of alcoholism. People may use the excuse of it being Super Bowl, or a wedding, or Christmas, or whatever, but it’s still binge drinking. Black outs are more common during this time. A black out (loss of memory of events during drinking) is proof positive that the person has crossed over from casual drinking into full-blown alcoholism. Continue reading
