The modern world is full of environmental toxins. It is estimated that there are over 80,000 toxic chemicals used regularly in the US. There are over 500 chemicals stored in our body, and the average individual has at least seven pesticides tested in their urine. It is imperative to have a daily detoxification lifestyle to get these unwanted toxins out of our system. Infrared sauna technology is an advanced detoxification strategy with remarkable health results. Continue reading →
Given what we are now exposed to through our food, air, and water, detoxification has become a modern-day necessity. Without the daily activation of ancient, effective physiological pathways designed to remove environmental toxins, we are bound to get sick.
A shocking new study finds that glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup herbicide, “…may be the most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment,” capable of contributing to a wide range of fatal human diseases.
Important to all of us is the health of children. Our own children, our grandchildren, nieces, nephews, godchildren. When it comes to environmental toxins affecting our most susceptible, innocent members of society, we must all stop and take notice. That’s why we are reporting today on a paper published that presents the top-10 chemicals highly likely to contribute to autism Continue reading →
Research tells us that environmental toxins are probably not good for us. Unfortunately, this does not stop the widespread use of chemicals such as pesticides and PCBs. There is very little positive press about toxins used in the manufacturing and agricultural industries when it comes to human health. Now researchers are dealing toxins yet another blow: in the latest health news out of Uppsala University in Sweden, environmental toxins may be linked to atherosclerosis.
Atherosclerosis is a hardening of the arteries that often leads to cardiovascular disease. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in industrialized countries.
The Swedish researchers measured levels of environmental toxins in the blood of about 100 Swedes. These study participants were also assessed for hardening of the arteries.
Life in the 21st century is full of stress in the form of emotional setbacks, environmental toxins, physical trauma & poor nutrition. This stress depletes the body of critical nutrients and causes oxidation of various cellular elements. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that helps the body successfully adapt to stressful conditions.
Ashwagandha is also called Indian ginseng, winter cherry, & Withania Somnifera. Although it grows naturally in North America and Africa, it is most commonly associated with the Ayurvedic traditions of the east. Ayurveda is an ancient philosophy and application of natural health common in India and the Far East. This tradition is known to use the roots of the Withania Somnifera plant to prepare Ashwagandha. This herb has been used for a myriad of health conditions throughout the centuries by Ayurvedic medicine men.
Natural Cure Strategies for Sinus Infections & Ear Aches
Years of research for Ear ache prevention, found that repeated allergies, sinus, and ear aches are the result of a “weakened immune system” mainly due to “antibiotic overuse.” Antibiotics kill good and bad bacteria in the colon resulting in poor digestion and impaired absorption of nutrients. In addition to impairing the absorption of nutrients, antibiotics impair the mucosa (the inner lining of the small intestines) so toxins that should normally exit the body, get absorbed into the blood stream instead. Toxins in the blood stream can cause various allergic reactions such as hives, body aches, sneezing, itching, and a runny nose. Runny noses and fluid buildup provide the breeding ground for bacterial sinus infections and ear aches / ear pain.
The first step toward long-term healing of earaches is to supplement with Lactobacillus Acidophilus (friendly flora), which is a Continue reading →
