Have you ever tried buckwheat pancakes? Worried that all that flour and syrup will spike your blood sugar? Well, here’s some health advice: make your pancakes from buckwheat flour and you might actually be normalizing your blood sugar rather than the opposite. Researchers have discovered that special nutrients in buckwheat may contribute to blood sugar control. Buckwheat bran is an important natural source of quercetin and isoquercetin. Quercetin and isoquercetin are both powerful “a-glucosidase inhibitors” — meaning they prevent the digestion of carbohydrates and reduce their impact on blood sugar. Continue reading

Post-herpetic neuralgia (pain caused by shingles episodes) is one of the worst pains one can experience. Newer research has shown that the chronic pain is secondary to immunoexcitotoxicity within the area of the spinal cord supplied by the involved nerve.
In one study, the antibiotic minocycline had great success because it reduces microglia activation — the source of the immunoexcitotoxicity. St. John’s wort, which also reduces glutamate excitotoxicity, is helpful, too, as is L-theonine.
Other useful treatments include curcumin, quercetin (500 mg of each mixed with a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil and taken three times a day), hesperidin, magnesium, vitamin K, Continue reading
“My veterinarian made me do it! I love my veterinarian so much, that I do exactly what he/she tells me to do. We all listen to the alternative practitioners warning about the potential side effects and how vaccination is not a simple thing but is a true medical procedure with risks and benefits just like all medical procedures. But I’m scared because I’ve heard that it can have dangerous, life threatening consequences, not just for my pets but for my kids and me, too. I’m just so afraid not to get those booster shots, that I get the reminders for in the mail, all the time.

The ultimate blow being when my vet tells me, I won’t be able to bring my pet back to the clinic unless I vaccinate and boost regularly. What if I have an emergency, then what?”
Sound familiar? What are we supposed to do in the face of such tactics? For those of us who dare to recommend caution about vaccination, especially annual boosters and/or even the appropriate time Continue reading
