Smelly Superstar Is First in Disease Prevention

Garlic is a superstar when it comes to protecting against disease — no doubt about it. How does garlic come to sit in the top spot when it comes to maintaining good health? Mostly because it is high in sulfur compounds. These compounds are potent extractors of toxic heavy chemicals in your body. They bind with chemicals so that they can be excreted, instead of taking hold in your organs and causing damage. These sulfur compounds are also effective at protecting against oxidation and free radicals. Garlic is also a natural antiseptic. Continue reading

Why a Healthy Digestive Tract is an Important Key to Longevity and the Prevention of Disease

More than 100 million Americans experience digestive problems.  But most people don’t know that digestive imbalances can severely damage one’s health.

One clue to what “normal” digestion looks like … can be found by observing primitive people living in rural, non-industrialized regions—those who live simple lives, and who have simple, natural diets.  These people have been observed to have one bowel movement within 20 to 30 minutes after eating a major meal—and they average 2 to 4 bowel movements a day!

If you’ve been told that having one bowel movement a day was a good sign of healthy digestion, that is erroneous information that is hazardous to your health.  Continue reading

Cancer Death Rates Continue to Decline

Deaths rates from cancer dropped 1.8 percent per year in men and 1.6 percent per year in women between 2004 and 2008, according to a new report — a promising trend that experts hope will accelerate in the years to come.

“This is really very exciting,” said report co-author Ahmedin Jemal of the Atlanta-based American Cancer Society. “Of course, the decrease is due to improvements in cancer prevention, early detection and treatment.”

Over the past 18 years, the steady drop in cancer death rates has translated into more than a million deaths averted, according to the report. Continue reading

Olive and Fish Oil Found To Potentially Prevent Pancreatitis

There seem to be more and more reasons to consume oils that contain healthy fats. For example, researchers from the University of Granada in Spain have discovered that oleic acid and hydroxytyrosol, which can be found in virgin olive oil and fatty acids in fish, can prevent the development of acute pancreatitis.

Pancreatitis is a disease that is believed to be caused by an oxidative-inflammatory process happening in the body. Researchers found that the antioxidants inside olive and fish oils seems to prevent this process from occurring. According to the study authors, it all comes down to what a person is eating.

“There is increasing evidence that there are oxidative-inflammatory processes involved Continue reading

Inversion Therapy: A Little Time Upside Down Could Make Your Life Go Right Side Up

Inversion therapy has been a secret health practice, revered for centuries among yogis, ninja warriors, and other clandestine societies. Inversion is the act of hanging upside down, performing a headstand, or using a simple surface to lie at an inverted angle.

The coveted wisdom of this practice is understood only in the tightest-knit circles, even now. Why? Because its health benefits were so powerful and wide ranging that few were willing to share their special advantage with outsiders!

It’s little wonder you’ll now find the tradition of inversion being carried on among modern elites such as the Army Rangers, who perform gravity boot inversion exercises behind the walls of Fort Bragg, at the U.S. Army Physical Fitness School inversion therapy

But the secret of inversion has also found its way into another kind of society — high society. Among rising stars and socialites, inversion is fast becoming the hottest new treatment for its growing list of positive benefits. Continue reading

Astaxanthin Benefits Helps Prevent Alzheimer’s

A carotenoid found in algae has been shown to prevent dementia — including Alzheimer’s, a disease that conventional medicine has yet to conquer?

The incidence of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease increases rapidly with age. One out of five people over age 65 — and 50% of people over age 85 are afflicted with Alzheimer’s. At least 5.2 million Americans over the age of 65 suffer from the disease, and 200,000 under the age of 65 are living with younger-onset Alzheimer’s.

The good news is that recent research conducted by Japanese scientists shows that an antioxidant called astaxanthin prevents the build-up of dangerous compounds Continue reading

Zinc the Link for Pneumonia Prevention

Vegans aren’t just missing out on good health… there’s now solid evidence that a meat-free lifestyle can leave seniors open to pneumonia and even death.

That’s because while you won’t find the answer to colds, the flu and pneumonia in mainstream meds or vaccines… you will find it in zinc-rich foods such as steak, liver and oysters — and a new study confirms what I’ve been saying about this miraculous mineral for years.

Researchers have been keeping tabs on 600 elderly residents of 33 nursing homes in the Boston area who were given supplements with half the recommended amounts of essential vitamins and nutrients.

Those with normal levels of zinc in the blood Continue reading
