Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and heal the body

Antioxidants are intimately involved in the prevention of cellular damage -- the common pathway for cancer, aging, and a variety of diseases.

The role of antioxidants  

One of the most frequent types of damage done to your body is caused by molecules known as free radicals. Free radicals are organic molecules responsible for aging, tissue damage, and possibly some disease

The mission of antioxidants is to find out these free radicals inside your body and make it impossible to attach to your body so that your cells are being protected from the damage of these free radicals. If you are lack of antioxidants and unable to neutralize these free radicals they can escape into surrounding tissues and further damage your cells. To prevent this damage, balance is the key.

• Gastrointestinal problems – including irritable bowel or a history of ulcers.
• Liver problems – especially those with hepatitis or cirrhosis.
• Kidney problems – this is most critical for those patients on dialysis.

Mushrooms - Another great way to get your vitamin D

Chris Sumbs -

Eating mushrooms may be as effective at raising serum vitamin D levels as taking capsuled supplements, researchers have reported.
Vitamin D is a known antioxidant Suspected to be effective in fighting a variety of cancers including colon, breast, and prostate. Vitamin D is is suspected to be effective in fighting numerous diseases including multiple sclerosis, Type 1 diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis. Vitamin D may prevent some cancers, diabetes and heart disease. New evidence suggests that vitamin D plays a role in an adult’s immune system and may help prevent infections and autoimmune diseases.

Vitamin D has been linked to quite a few other health benefits in addition to bone health. Recent research has shown vitamin D to be associated with a healthy heart. Early studies have also shown a possible link between low levels of vitamin D and cancers such as colon, breast, pancreatic, and lung. One article even called vitamin D the “possible nutrient of the decade."

Oregon Grape - Natural Health Wonder

Chris Sumbs -  

Oregon grape has an interesting and distinctive combination of properties which makes it a versatile natural remedy.

Oregon grape is a perennial plant native to the west coast of North America. It is indigenous to the temperate rain forests of the Pacific Northwest. The lovely shrub displays bright yellow flowers in the spring and spreads by underground stems known as rhizomes. The tree produces deep purple berries, and its dark green leaves turn bronze, crimson, or purple in the fall.

Healing Properties

Oregon grape root has a distinctly bitter taste due to the presence of alkaloids; berberine being the most notable. These alkaloid substances have a beneficial effect on the human digestive tract. They stimulate the flow of bile, which loosens the stools and helps prevent and sometimes relieves constipation, diverticulosis, gallbladder disease, and hemorrhoids. They may also help people with constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Oregon grape also has antibiotic and anticancer properties that are receiving more and more attention by researchers and clinicians. Berberine and other alkaloids have been shown to kill a wide range of microbes and have been effective in human studies for speeding recovery from giardia, candida, viral diarrhea, and cholera.

The anticancer properties of berberine have been the subject of continued research. In animal and in vitro study, berbamine, an alkaloid constituent of Oregon grape, has shown antiproliferative activity against leukemia cancer cells and decreased numbers of bone marrow stem cells, and thus may help protect bone marrow and promote recovery from chemotherapy and radiation therapy for cancer.

Hibiscus Tea & Lower Blood Pressure

Chris Sumbs -

Is it possible that something as simple as hibiscus tea can lower blood pressure as effectively as pharmaceutical drugs?
Crazy as it sounds, the results of some controlled studies show Hibiscus tea to be as effective as many prescribed pharmaceuticals.

Hibiscus tea is a mega popular beverage worldwide. The ruby-colored, tangy drink is known as "Jamaica" in Mexico and also found in Red Zinger tea. Hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa)has been for centuries by African and Asian as a medical treatment. In the late 1990s, Iranian researchers clinically demonstrated the effectiveness of this treatment.

For proof of its efficacy, two studies compared with hibiscus tea directly to pharmaceutical blood pressure drugs. In 2004, Mexican researchers assigned 75 adults with high blood pressure to take either 25 mg of a prescription blood-pressure drug twice per day, or to drink tea made from 10 g (about 5 teaspoons) of crushed dried hibiscus once per day. After four weeks, blood pressure had dropped by 11 percent in both groups. In 2007, the US researchers conducted a follow-up study, this time using a commonly prescribed blood-pressure drug as a comparison. Once again, hibiscus performed comparably to the drug, reducing blood pressure in hypertension patients in average of 14 percent, compared with 15 percent for prescription.

 May also prevent high blood pressure, heart attacks

In a random, double-blind study published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2010, McKay and colleagues assigned 65 adults between the ages of 30 and 70, all of them suffering from either pre-hypertension or mild hypertension, to drink 240 mL of either hibiscus tea or a placebo three times per day. None of the participants were taking any blood pressure drugs. After six weeks, systolic blood pressure dropped seven points in the hibiscus group, compared with only one point in the placebo group. Once again, the improvement seen was comparable to that provided by pharmaceutical drugs.

It’s been shown the even modest decreases in blood pressure can reduce the risk for heart attack and heart disease. The fact that a simple tea produces the same results as a costly pharmaceutical with virtually none of the side effects simply amazes me. This is further proof that pharmaceutical companies are simply out to make money and could care less about the health and well-being of the end users.

Proof That Soda Increases Risk of Diabetes

Drinking a can of sugar-laced soda a day will raise your risk of developing diabetes by 22%!

According to a new study just released evidence suggests that just one 12 ounce serving of a sugar-sweetened beverage can significantly raise the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

What’s interesting about this this is that since most of the research on the evil effects of soda has been done on people in the US, researches at the Imperial College of London set up to seek a link between soda consumption and Type 2 diabetes in Europeans as well.

The British researchers used 15 years of data compiled from over 27,000 people from seven European countries. Over that 15 year period, more than 40 percent of those people developed type 2 diabetes and those who said they consumed at least one soda or similar sweet drink showed an 18% higher risk of developing the disease! When they took out factors such as weight and body mass index, the risk rose to 22%!

Coincidentally, these findings were right in line with the US studies showing a 25% percent increased risk of type 2 diabetes when consuming one soda per day.

Cure Severe Flu with Omega-3 acids

Written by: Chris Sumbs -

Cure severe flu naturally using omega-3

People are discovering the health benefits from omega-3 fatty acids. Many natural doctors, Eastern medicine practitioners, and those in touch with nature know its value for supporting cardiovascular health, reducing inflammation, and enhancing cognitive brain function. Now, there is recently discovered benefit, it helps fight severe influenza. Omega-3 is a polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA). The human body doesn’t generate it naturally. It’s an essential oil, meaning it needs to be supplied from outside sources.

It can be derived from two sources, plants and animals. Plant sources include avocados and nuts. Essential Omega-3’s, like those in NR Essentials DHA, are found in most natural supplements are flax seeds or oils, chia seeds, and hemp seeds. In the oil form, it needs to be refrigerated. Flax seed needs to be ground into powder for easy absorption. Chia seeds don't need to be ground or refrigerated. Hemp seeds need to be refrigerated but not ground. Animal sources of Omega-3 are readily found in eggs or meat. Perhaps the best source is fatty fish and fish and krill oils. Fish oil supplements, usually from cod or krill, are available in health food stores in the refrigerated section, and they must also remain refrigerated at home or they'll go rancid.

Can Omega-3 effectively rid the body of flu infection? A Japanese study was recently completed. It was entitled "The Lipid Mediator Protectin D1 Inhibits Influenza Virus Replication and Improves Severe Influenza." The study concluded that protectin D1, the lipid mediator, has both a preventative and curative potential for even H5N1(the "bird flu") which has been more lethal than any other influenza. Japanese researches infected mice with different strains of influenza viruses. Those fed the protectin D1 from Omega-3 fatty acid sources survived as well as those who were given Peramivir, a powerful intravenous drug given emergency approval for specific grave influenza conditions in South Korea and Japan. Half the mice died with taking only one or the other remedy. But all of the heavily infected mice given both Peramivir and protectin D1(Omega-3) survived. Further studies revealed the mechanics of how omega-3 fatty acid's protectin D1 shuts down viral replication at the cellular level. Protectin D1 is part of a natural substance, a polyunsaturated fatty acid or PUFA as omega-3 fatty acid. We know that with all this money on the line, it’s likely a pharmaceutical company will consign willing researchers to reverse engineer the protectin D1 from omega-3 to create a synthetic version of protectin D1 that can be patented. That way they can make it into a “synthetic drug” for commercial purposes. But for those of us in the alternative health community, we know exactly what this means. The research makes us aware that omega-3 fatty acids can effectively prevent and cure any flu.

Plant or Animal Omega-3, where to buy? EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are considered the healthiest Omega-3 acids. EPA and DHA are found readily in the animal omega-3 sources such as eggs, fish, and dark meat. Plant sources contain ALA, or alpha linoleic acid (not alpha lopeic acid). As noted, these types of plant Omega-3 need to be altered or prepared for consumption. So some experts recommend using fish oil supplements. Maybe it’s a good idea to put both into a daily regimen of healthy herbs? There are certain benefits from plant ALA omega-3 as well. The best overall Omega-3 I’ve found is NR Essentials DHA. Maintain your brain. You can do it with DHA, an essential fatty acid. Just order NR Essentials DHA. It comes in capsules that are smaller, easier to swallow, and unflavored.

MSG is Toxic and should be avoided

Written by: Chris Sumbs -

MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) is very toxic and should be avoided! Industrial food manufacturers market and use MSG as a flavor enhancer because it balances, blends and rounds the total perception of other tastes which are not so nice. Problem is; consumption of MSG causes numerous negative side effects.

Here’s the list of names of ingredients which are actually MSG in disguise. - Additives that always contain MSG -

  •  Autolyzed yeast 
  • Calcium caseinate 
  • Dry milk powder 
  • Dry milk protein 
  • Gelatin Glutamate 
  • Glutamic acid 
  • Hydrolyzed corn gluten 
  • Hydrolyzed soy protein 
  • Hydrolyzed wheat protein 
  • Hydrolyzed oat flour 
  • Hydrolyzed protein 
  • Hydrolyzed plant protein 
  • Hydrolyzed vegetable protein 
  • Monopotassium glutamate 
  • Monosodium glutamate 
  • Natrium glutamate 
  • Plant protein extract 
  • Sodium caseinate 
  • Textured protein 
  • Yeast extract 
  • Yeast food 
  • Yeast nutrient

Some of these include; headaches, migraines, muscle spasms, nausea, rashes, anaphylaxis, seizures, depression and heart irregularities. If that’s not enough to scare you, studies have shown that MSG is known to cause damage to the nervous system. When the brain and nervous system neurons are exposed to MSG, they become very excited and rapidly fire impulses until they reach a state of extreme exhaustion. Several hours later, these neurons suddenly die, as if they were excited to death. That’s why these chemicals are called "excitotoxins". They excite neurons and then they die. MSG literally kills neurons, one of the body’s most important building blocks. For years it was believed the blood-brain barrier would prevent harmful substances from entering the interior of the brain. However, it is now recognized that many conditions can cause the blood-brain barrier to provide insufficient protection. Consuming foods that are chemically altered by MSG also endangers the body balance for the blood-brain barrier to work effectively. By consuming foods with MSG, blood glutamate levels become elevated. If these levels remain high, the glutamate will seep into the brain, creating or contributing to brain damage.

Avoiding MSG: The food industry constantly comes up with new name changes for the chemicals we are trying to avoid. As people become aware of the negative effects of MSG they simply create a new name to “mask them”. The simplest way to avoid MSG is to eat organic foods, period. Always be sure to avoid all processed foods and read labels.

Common Names for MSG: Here’s the list of names of ingredients which are actually MSG in disguise.

The Bottom line: MSG is a terribly harmful food additive. Food manufactures know this and yet they keep finding ways to put it into the foods millions of people consume every day. You should keep this out of your body at all costs!

Herbs have been used as a method for enhancing sex drive for thousands of years.

Sex Drive can be affected in a number of ways. Testosterone levels can affect sex drive; personal circumstances related to work and family, can inhibit it too; as well as psychological factors, like personality and stress. Lifestyle,medical conditions, relationships problems and medications can also play a major part in decreasing sex drive.

Fortunately there are a number of Natural Remedies, for both men and women, that can help. Listed below are the 6 most popular:

Ginseng: Known primarily for its energy enhancing powers it helps improve mental and physical stamina providing a good basis for significantly increasing sex drive in both men and women.

Ashwagandha: This is known in India as a male herbal sexual health tonic.It works by increasing blood circulation to the male sexual organs.

Yohimbe: This is considered to be one of the most potent herbs for male sexual dysfunction. It is so potent that, if consumed in excessive amounts, can cause blood pressure related issues.

Green Tea
A study published in the journal Nanomedicine concluded that two-thirds of tumors treated with green tea extract shrank while causing zero side effects to healthy surrounding tissue.  Green tea is also a powerful antioxidant that removes free radicals from the body.

Reishi mushroom extract is a government registered anti cancer.  Reishi, shitake, oyser,  and even common crimini mushrooms all have anticancer properties.  Reishi mushrooms inhibit tumor growth and reduce size of tumors by increasing the body's production of interleukin 1 and 2.  Regular consumption of crimini mushrooms reduces the risk of hormone related breast cancer by inhibiting estrogen production.
