Common Cures Part II
Updated August 2011:
WARNING ABOUT GENERICS
In an article in BOTTOM LINE health magazine, they warned against using generic prescriptions. These are made in India and China with poor compounding standards. A friend was using a Synthroid generic and found that she “crashed” by the middle of the day. Her doctor advised not to take another pill. She discovered the article, switched to the real Synthroid and her problem was solved.
ON TAKING VITAMINS
Never take vitamins or medications within 2 hours of drinking coffee (says nutritionist at the Village Green Apothecary). Never take calcium within 2 hours of consuming chocolate— the oxalic acid will bind with the calcium, not only rendering it useless but possibly causing kidney stones.
Tea, coffee, raw fish and shell fish contain thiamineases— this can destroy vitamins.
GREEN TEA RESEARCH: The substance ECGC (Epigallocatechin-3-gallate) from green tea can redirect the deadly process which leads to the accumulation of protein aggregates in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
SOY ISOFLAVONES & REDUCED ASTHMA SEVERITY: Four weeks of supplementation with genistein, an isoflavone from soy, may suppress the inflammatory process and ease breathing and explain previous reports linking the isoflavone to reduced asthma severity, suggests a new pilot study.
OSTEOPOROSIS and SOY: Habitual consumption of soybeans and isoflavones may increase mineral density in young women.
Supplements of soy isoflavones may lead to improvements in bone health and blood sugar metabolism, according to new research from Japan
WARNING: IT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL that your Soy products are ORGANIC and not genetically modified, as most are. This type of soy contains TOXINS!!!
CARDIO: Omega-3 with high fat meal eases cardiovascular changes— Consuming the omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid along with a high fat meal may counter the detrimental effects on arterial stiffness, suggests new research
- Green tea shows benefits against fatty liver— Extracts from green tea stop the build-up of fatty deposits in the liver
AGING: Low vitamin E levels linked to greater physical decline— Low blood levels of vitamin E are linked to greater physical decline in older people, suggests a new study from Yale University School of Medicine
NEUROPATHY: Citrus Flavanoids show Neuro-Protection potential. Antioxidant compounds in citrus fruit may have a role in protecting against neuro-degenerative diseases, suggests lab study from Taiwan. Some form of neuropathy is common in the elderly.
COLLOIDAL SILVER CONTROVERSY: Don’t worry about turning blue!
After becoming ill with strong antibiotics, one woman tried a $20 bottle of CS spray. The woman improved in 3 days!
RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME
In February 2008, Dr. Ira Rosenfeld, on FOX TV, started that the current research indicates that RLS is do to a lack of iron “in the brain”— not in the body but in the brain only. This interferes with Dopamine, a hormone that regulates body movements. These people do well on Parkinson Disease drugs. If not controlled, these people have a higher incidence of heart attacks and stroke. I have written a paper on RLS which has been posted on the Medical Forum.
LEG CRAMPS (especially at night): A friend told me that she cured herself of horrible leg cramps by using a Cayce product, CALCIOS. It is a paste of creamed bone and it is absorbed easily by the body. It contains a lot of trace minerals. This can be obtained at the HERITAGE STORE in Virginia Beach. Spread a little on a cracker, about 3 times a week.
FEEDBACK: When it is actually happening, I get up and take a small amount of protein drink, a vitamin B complex, and a calcium/magnesium supplement and usually can go back to sleep in about 20 min. I have found that I get it when I eat too much sugar. The body uses B vitamins and Calcium to aid in digestion of sugar and simple carbs like white flour and white rice, etc. The protein helps to counter the reaction to carbs.
Adults with epilepsy who have failed other treatments may be able to dramatically reduce their number of seizures by following a modified Atkins-like diet, Johns Hopkins researchers report. For the study, Kossoff’s team gave the diet to 30 adults who had unsuccessfully tried at least two anti-convulsant drugs and had an average of 10 seizures a week. The eating plan restricts patients to 15 grams of carbohydrates a day. Most of the calories come from fats such as eggs, meats, oils and heavy cream. In addition, patients are free to eat as much protein and no-carb drinks as they want. “There was good news and bad news,” Kossoff said. “The good news was it worked. The bad news it was tough.
Oats Scientists funded by ARS have discovered that certain compounds in oats hinder the ability of blood cells to stick to artery walls. The oat compounds are called Avenanthramides. The research team recently found that they significantly suppressed adhesive molecules that “glue” blood cells to artery walls. When blood cells stick to— and cause inflammation of— the artery wall, plaques build up. That accumulation— called atherosclerosis— can eventually block the blood vessel. The suppression provided by Avenanthramides in oats may prevent this narrowing of the passageways through which blood flows.
NUTS: Incorporating more nut and nut-containing foods into the diet at the expense of foods full of saturated fats could reduce cholesterol levels by six per cent, suggests a new study with macadamia nuts.
NIACIN: available over the counter, is the most effective HDL-raising medication available. Use the Non-Flushing type of Niacin.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
“Our research suggests that drinking BEET JUICE or consuming other nitrate-rich vegetables, might be a simple way to maintain a healthy cardiovascular system, and might also be an additional approach that one could take in the modern day battle against rising blood pressure,” said Professor Amrita Ahluwalia of the William Harvey Research Institute at Barts and The London School of Medicine
MedWire News: Drinking beetroot juice, which contains a high level of nitrate, substantially decreases blood pressure (BP) levels, inhibits platelet aggregation, and prevents ischemiainduced endothelial dysfunction, preliminary study findings show.
UPDATE: The best blood pressure lowering supplement at this time is NATTOKINASE. Use 100 mgs daily.
CARBUNCLE CAYCE CURE (also for warts): Cayce said that carbuncles are caused when the endocrine system is off. The technique is to cover the wart or carbuncle with a mixture of castor oil and baking soda, as a paste. The woman who submitted this for discovered to have an underactive thyroid.
ON A DIET
BILBERRY EXTRACT benefits kidneys and protects against damage Link
ANTHOCYANINS, found in the Bilberry, have anti-obestiy properties. These are antioxidant pigments from fruit and vegetables, have a “ significant potency “ against fat cells and could be used for the prevention of weight gain. Purified forms of extracted anthocyanins from berries may decrease obesity, but the whole fruit doesn’t produce the same benefits— only use the Extracts!
BLUEBERRY EXTRACT: Rats fed extracts from blueberries gained up to 10 per cent less body weight than their furry counterparts not consuming the extracts, says new joint research from New Zealand and the US.
DR. OZ SAYS: Blueberries and Blackberries contain compounds that strengthen the walls of the arteries. This may help prevent Spider and Varicose Veins.
HEALING & COLOR
From About.com/alternative medicine
RED is thought to be linked to the base chakra and the spine, hips and legs. It’s thought to stimulate and boost physical energy, strengthen willpower, increase circulation, clear congestion and is linked with sexuality. Too much red may over-stimulate and possibly promote anger or aggressiveness.
ORANGE is thought to encourage joy, socializing and optimism, which is why it’s considered useful for depression or sadness. Orange is associated with the sacral chakra and it’s believed to benefit the kidneys, urinary tract and the reproductive organs. Too much orange is thought to lead to tiredness, pessimism and confusion.
YELLOW is associated with the solar plexus chakra. An imbalance in the solar plexus chakra is thought to promote fear, apprehension, confusion, lack of determination, introversion or power issues, which this color is believed to balance. Yellow is associated with the intellect and mental processes and is uplifting. The solar plexus chakra is also thought to influence the digestive system. Too much yellow is believed to lead to poor concentration and hyperactivity.
GREEN is a color that’s thought to encourage emotional stability, purity and calmness. It’s related to the heart chakra, so it’s believed to help with emotional issues, such as love, forgiveness, trust and compassion. An imbalance in the heart chakra is associated with fear of relationships, mistrust, jealousy, isolation and insecurity. BLUE is related to the throat chakra and is said to be connected to the throat and lungs. It’s thought to enhance verbal expression and communication, artistic expression and willpower. It’s a calming color and is believed to help insomnia, anxiety, throat problems, high blood pressure, migraine and skin irritation.
INDIGO is associated with the third eye chakra, located between the eyes, and is related to the eyes and the lower part of the head. It’s said to encourage greater intuition and strengthen the lymph system, immune system and help purify and cleanse the body.
PURPLE-VIOLET is associated with the crown chakra, which is at the top of the head. It’s thought to encourage spirituality, intuition, wisdom, mastery and mental strength and focus. Too much purple is thought to promote pride and arrogance.
HONEY & WHY IT WORKS
In recent years, the use of honey has re-emerged as a remedy for wound treatment. Effects of honey have been related to the presence of an unidentified component that induces release of inflammatory cytokines from monocytic cells. Our results show that natural honeys induce interleukin-6 release from Mono Mac 6 cells as well as release of reactive oxygen species from all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) differentiated HL-60 cells. The natural honeys contained substantial amounts of ENDOTOXIN and the responses observed in the cell based assays were similar to the responses induced by endotoxin alone. We speculate that the observed in vitro immunomodulatory effects of honey might solely be explained by the endotoxin content in the natural honeys.
Video clip of Dr. Christopher Attinger of Georgetown U. Hospital using a brand name of Manuka honey to close a three-year old MRSA staph infection. A Channel 4 news presentation.
NOTE: I spilled very hot coffee on the back of my hand. It left a bloody sore that was about 2 inches in diameter that would not heal. I used Colloidal Silver, Zinc Cream and Antibacterial and antibiotic creams and nothing changed. I bought honey at Whole Foods and within 3 hours it was completely healed! I have one tiny scar as a reminder. My cat gets bug bite sores on her ears during the summer. I use Manuka honey on her ears and it not only heals but it does not attract more insects.
Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the leading cause of sight loss in the UK, more than doubles the risk of dying from a heart attack or stroke, The Daily Express reports. As their condition worsens, “people become five times more likely to suffer a fatal heart attack and 10 times more at risk of a deadly stroke.
Supplementation with the CAROTENOIDS LUTEIN and ZEAXANTHIN could boost retinal health in the eyes, and have benefits for people with seemingly healthy eyes, says a new study. “Four to six months of 12 mg daily lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation significantly increases MPOD and improves visual performance in glare for most subjects,” stated the researchers. Source
ASTAXANTHIN, the carotenoid mostly associated with eye health, may enhance the burning of fat during exercise and lead to improved muscle endurance, suggests a new study with mice that needs to be repeated in humans.
VISION— FLOATERS: Years ago, the Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR) outlined a treatment for floaters using three specific nutrients — choline, inositol, and methionine. It may not eliminate them altogether, but in my experience, this combination reduces the severity of floaters in most of the people who try it, although it can take several months to notice a difference.
Recommended: 1,000 milligrams of choline, 500 milligrams of inositol, and 200 milligrams of methionine daily
CATARACTS: This appeared on an alternative medical forum— the homoepathic Cineraria Maritima eye drops. 1 drops 3X daily, clear the cloudiness and reduces tearing.
VISION: Two reports published in the May, 2009 issue of the American Medical Association journal Archives of Ophthalmology reveal a protective effect for omega-3 fatty acids, fish, nuts and olive oil, and an adverse effect for trans fatty acids, on the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of vision loss in older individuals
ATTENTION: A new study conducted on rat eye lenses indicates that the dietary supplement Carnosine may help to prevent— or even treat— cataracts.
CATARACTS or a clouding of the lens of the eye— is one of the leading causes of vision loss around the world, and can only currently be treated by surgery to replace the eye lens. According to researchers writing in the July 28 edition of the American Chemical Society journal Biochemistry, their tissue culture experiments demonstrated that Carnosine could help prevent cloudiness on eye lenses, and could also restore clarity to clouded lenses.
► PYCNOGENOL: Supplements of French maritime pine bark extract may improve the flow of blood in the tiny blood vessels of the retina, and enhance sight in diabetics with early stage eye problems, says a new study.
Visual acuity, or the clearness of vision, was found to improve from 14/20 to 17/20 in people with early stage retina damage associated with diabetes (diabetic retinopathy) following daily supplements of the pine bark extract, Pycnogenol, for two months.
AMINO ACIDS & AGING
Supplementing the diet of elderly people with the full set of essential amino acids can boost their lean body mass, strength and physical function, according to a new study. The small study, with only 12 volunteers, challenges previous studies that showed no benefits, and highlights the potential benefits of amino acid supplements for this growing age group at risk of gradual decline in muscle mass, strength and function.
NOTE: I would recommend the Amino Acids mentioned in Dr. Braverman’s book, THE EDGE EFFECT, as these are the amino acids that impact the four lobes of the brain as well.
IMMUNITY & AGING
UCLA researchers who have found that a chemical in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables may hold a key to restoring the body’s immunity, which declines as we age. WARNING: Broccoli, like other dark green vegetables, thickens the blood. Taking supplements that thin the blood, such as garlic, is advised.
LEAKY GUT SYNDROME: This is an excellent website
EARS— GENERAL INFO
Several people suggested using a tincture product by www.herbsetc.com called Mullein/Garlic Ear Drops. With fluids in the ear, use an Ear Bulb to suck out the fluids— then apply a drop of extra virgin coconut oil for any infection. I personally have been using Oregano Oil as a preventative. My ears do not produce wax so bacteria easily invade my ears so it is always reoccurring. All of these ingredients are anti-bacterial. For a complete cure, Manual Lymph Drainage is a technique that will cure the sore and painful ears within 30 minutes. I developed sore bloody ears during a flight to Arizona. After getting the MLD technique at the Cayce Clinic in Phoenix, my ears were perfect within 30 minutes! It is the Drainage technique that works better than the massage with this condition.
SOLAR MAX: Around 2010, we will be experiencing Solar Max, when activity on the Sun disturbs the Earth’s Electro-Magnetic Field. This ringing affects health, as described by physicist, Alexander Dubrov. Due to the ringing of the Earth’s EMF, the immune response is compromised. Heart attacks and infections are common, specifically at the beginning of Solar Max, until the body has time to adjust to the ringing effect.
Dr. Jenna Henderson told me that she used Country Life’s, PARA-FACTORS. After using this product, she not only got rid of the internal parasites but the 2-legged external ones disappeared as well. We have parasites on the inside when we allow parasitic people into our lives. NOTE: I take Nature’s Way Oregano Oil daily as a preventative. Friends have been using Hulda Clark’s technique using Black Walnut tincture, Cloves and Wormwood over a 20 day period. I am taking Black Walnut but I cannot give any verification.
This was first posted in COMMON CURES I but the name of this Country Life product is now PARA-FACTORS. It contains many anti-parasite supplements. It is an on-going supplement— 1-2 pills are taken 3 times a daily after meals; stop for 3 weeks and resume for 2 weeks. This will be easier for those who cannot tolerate the unpleasant taste of the tinctures. Use the liver-gall bladder cleanse after this procedure to flush out parasites in hiding and their residue.
Jenna uses applied kinesiology for testing but the O&P stool test is the standard medical way to tell. Great Smokey Diagnostics sells kits to the general public.
Jenna also said that a mineral mal-absorption can show with longitudinal ridges on the fingernails. Zinc deficiency shows a white spots.
I have received feedback from readers that many doctors are recommending GRAPE SEED OIL for yeast/candida. Reports have been that this works very well. In my lectures, Candida is a common source for the skin condition, Roseaca. When eliminating Yeast, it is essential that you take a good fiber product in the morning and evening to eliminate the dead cells.
THRUSH: This is a form of candida that produces white patches of yeast in the mouth. After taking 2 different prescriptions with little success, one individual tried rinsing his mouth 5 times a day with Glyco-Thymoline— within 3 days, it was 95% gone. LYNN: I also use Gylco-Thymoline for nose drops to cure mucosity. It takes awhile but it is eventually eliminated.
Red wine anti-oxidant, RESVERATROL, is known for its ability to protect plants from bacteria and fungi, while previous research has also found it helps prevent the negative effects of high-calorie diets and has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer potential. Found in grape skins and red wine (unlike white wine, red wine is made with the skins) can cripple the function of pancreatic cancer cells while sensitizing them to chemotherapy.
ARTHRITIS (a small study)
Two teaspoons of cod liver oil a day can cut the number of powerful painkillers needed to ease the pain of arthritis”, reports the Daily Mail. Patients who were given the supplements “were able to reduce their daily dose of anti-inflammatory drugs”, the newspaper says. These findings are important because the long-term use of anti-inflammatory drugs “can double the threat of heart attack and raise the risk of strokes and heart disease”, the Mail adds. Dr. Oz, on OPRAH, prefers Cod Liver oil over Omega-3 oils.
ARTHRITIS & POMEGRANATE: An extract from pomegranate may suppress the inflammation and damage in joints linked to arthritis, if results from an animal study can be repeated in humans. Pomegranate extracts may block enzymes that contribute to cartilage degradation in osteoarthritis.
MELATONIN: Sleep and Fibromyalgia— One individual has been using 3 mgs sublingual Melatonin for 2 years with B12 sublingual with much success, even deducing the dosage over time.
I personally have been using the Timed-Release Melatonin but this still does not last the entire night. With Melatonin, you need to go directly to bed upon taking it. Now I use the LIQUID MELATONIN. If I wake up before 5am, I just take another dropper full. If I take it at 5am or later, it will be difficult to get up later in the morning.
Years ago when I was having stress issues that kept me awake, a nurse told me to take warm milk. This put me to sleep immediately. Taking a calcium supplement before going to bed actually works very well. Many of the Sleep Formulas found at the vitamin stores do not work at all.
PAIN: Two teaspoons of cod liver oil a day can cut the number of powerful painkillers needed to ease the pain of arthritis”, reports the Daily Mail. Patients who were given the supplements “were able to reduce their daily dose of anti-inflammatory drugs.”
NOTE: Do NOT take cod liver oil if you are on heart medications as this can lead to strokes.
Mice given caffeine equivalent to a human drinking six to eight cups of coffee a day were protected from developing experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), the animal model for the human disease Multiple Sclerosis (MS), according to researchers at Cornell University. Caffeine is a well-known adenosine receptor blocker, and the researchers believe results show the importance of this molecule in permitting the infiltration of immune cells into the central nervous system of patients with MS.
TART CHERRIES and Diabetes-Cholesterol-Blood Pressure-Obesity: Tart cherries— frequently sold dried, frozen or in juice. Rats that received whole tart cherry powder mixed into a high-fat diet didn’t gain as much weight or build up as much body fat as rats that didn’t receive cherries. Their blood showed much lower levels of molecules that indicate the kind of inflammation that has been linked to heart disease and diabetes. In addition, they had significantly lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides than the other rats. Cherry juice is the recommended cure for gout.
DIABETES & CHOCOLATE: Diabetes UK is funding a three year trial to investigate whether flavonoids, compounds found in chocolate, can protect older women with diabetes from heart disease. Older women with diabetes are five times more likely to develop heart disease than women without diabetes. Research suggests that although statin therapy can reduce the risk of heart disease, foods like cocoa and soy which contain flavonoids, can offer further protection from the disease. From CCI, chocolate (I use 85% cocoa bars or 100% cocoa powder) has been used in Germany for high blood pressure (relaxing the vessels), depression and Chronic Fatigue
A study has found that giving diabetics cocoa with higher than normal levels of flavonols, a type of antioxidant, improved blood flow through the arteries by 30%. The Daily Express also covered the story and said “patients with type 2 diabetes who drank three cups a day of the cocoa saw their blood vessel function return to normal within a month.”
On the SHARING WELLNESS website, an article was written that Cat’s Claw tincture and a mixture of 5 different Mushroom varieties greatly improved this condition. It is essential that you take the antibiotics as quicky as possible as this bacteria will ingrain itself into the tissues of the body and, at this point, you cannot get it out— it is yours for life! These supplements improve the immune system so they can act as a preventative as well.
Supplements of FOLIC ACID may lower blood levels of ARSENIC in individuals exposed to the toxin in contaminated drinking water. SILICON helps the body excrete ALUMINUM. Arsenic is naturally found in high levels in Southern California and Arizona. Toxic build-up can cause impotence in men, as well as other symptoms. Doctors are now examining arsenic levels for this problem. NOTE: Additional information can be found in CC IV.
FROM LIFE EXTENSION: Glutathione (gamma-L-glutamyl-L-cysteinyl-glycine) is a peptide-like (short-protein) molecule synthesized in the body from the three amino acids: L-glutamic acid, L-cysteine and glycine. Glutathione is one of the body’s most important and powerful antioxidants helping to detoxify xenobiotics. A major function of vitamin C is to keep glutathione in its reduced form so it can continue to provide free radical-quenching affects.
Glutathione, Cysteine & C is available from Life Extension® in 100 count bottles at http://www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/Item00113/Glutathione-Cysteine-and-C.html.
COMMON PRESCRIPTION DRUGS FOR ELDERLY: Some common prescriptions have a negative effect upon the elderly. Check out this CNN link: http://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/conditions/05/28/ep.age.meds/index.html
Pre- & Probiotic combination linked to better antioxidant status: The symbiotic formulation containing oligofructose prebiotics (Beneo-Orafti) and a mixture of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotics was associated with a reduction in oxidation of LDL, linked to, amongst other things, the development of atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries.
DO NOT TAKE PROBIOTICS if you have pancreatitis!
PROBIOTICS ADDENDUM: A daily milk drink containing the probiotic Lactobacillus casei Shirota (LcS) may modulate the immune response to grass pollen, and help hay fever sufferers, suggests a new study. In COMMON CURES I, I have many suggestions about Probiotics as a cure for adult food allergies (which results from extensive use of Antibiotics).
Also, local honey helps build the resistence to local pollens. Personally, I recommend at Probiotic with at least 15 billion live cells. Most supplements contain about 4 billion. This is not sufficient!
Hay fever is an allergic reaction to pollen or fungal spores, most commonly grass pollen. The immune system mistakes the spores for harmful invaders and white blood cells— T-helper type 2 (Th2) lymphocytes— produce protein-like cytokines, such as interleukin-4 (IL-4), IL-5 and IL-6, which in turn promote the synthesis of the immune chemicals immunoglobulins (Ig) to bind to the pollen and fight them off. However, supplementation with the probiotic led to reduced production of IL-5 and IL-6, as well as decreased in the production of IgE, according to findings published in the journal Clinical and Experimental Allergy. Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is the predominant antibody associated with an allergic response.
Daily supplements of the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may improve symptoms of eczema, according to the results of a new trial.
SUNBURN: Oral supplements of beta-carotene may protect against sunburn, and the longer the supplementation period the greater the protection, says a new meta-analysis.
BURNS & SUNBURNS: A Cayce recommended product, Glyco-Thymoline, is excellent for pouring over a burn or sunburn. It cools the skin immediately and, for a burn, it needs to be done immediately so keep some around the house.
BROMELAIN & PAIN
I periodically suffer with Bursitis related to Food Allergies. This is a testimonial for the benefits of using this Pineapple-related supplement. “An alternative doctor prescribed it to me in 2000 for the anti-inflammatory effect. You must take it between meals on an empty stomach for it to work as an anti-inflammatory. I’m using it that way too and seems to be working 100% for my back pain. I have other problems physically and it seems to be helping with that as well. My bladder and kidney function are not great and it seems to be improving that as well. I’m taking 1,000 mg two times a day between meals. I started taking 2,000 mg a day of bromelain for overall inflammation since I have long standing fibromyalgia pain pretty much all the time. What has surprised me about the bromelain is that it also is working to get rid of pain in my tail bone from an injury of 10 years duration to that part of the spine. Just in 3 days I notice a big difference!”
NOTE: Bromelain comes in capsules or tablets of 500 mgs. The strongest contains 2000 GDU.
NOTE II: If your insurance provides for this, I always encourage people to have complete allergy testing done to determine if foods are contributing to the inflammation. This is very true in my own case. After eating strawberries and other foods, my joints would ache, my skin would burn and I had very low energy as the body was working so hard to fight off the histamines.
TESTS: The most common type of blood test used is the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA, EIA). It measures the blood level of a type of antibody (called immunoglobulin E, or IgE) that the body may make in response to certain allergens. IgE levels are often higher in people who have allergies or asthma.
In Common Cures I, I discussed the importance of the Lymphatic System. Here are links that discuss this essential and often neglected organ in the body. Link 1 & Link 2. When I have a massage, I usually get a lymph massage at the ARE Clinic in Virginia Beach.
ACID-ALKALINE IMBALANCE DISORDERS
Edgar Cayce, considered the Father of Modern Holistic Health, suggested that many health issues were connected to a PH imbalance. Here is an excellent article
ANTI-INFLAMATION: A study with rabbits indicates that extracts from pomegranate may inhibit inflammation, and positively effect chronic disease risk. The activity of cyclooxygenase enzymes associated with inflammation, COX-1 and COX-2, was inhibited in animals fed a polyphenol-rich extract of POMEGRANATE, according to results published in the open-access Journal of Inflammation.
