Fish oils are not the only source for omega-3 fatty acids. There are several other sources that contain omega-3 fatty acids such as flax seed oil, walnut oil, rose hips and chia seed. The problem with plant omega-3s is that they do not contain EPA or DHA. While fish oils contain EPA and DHA, fish oil, before it’s bottled or encapsulated, requires a tremendous amount of refining and processing. Typically the fish that’s being processed for its oil is boiled to make it easier to obtain the oil when pressed under pressure.This process highly damages the oil which requires molecular…• • • • More • • • •
A documentary on sadness and anxiety I watched claimed that 50% of the population of Canada and the United States suffered from stress, nervousness and anxiety which caused a great deal of unhappiness and an abnormal dependence on drugs. The findings of this study also pointed out the fact that people with fear of the unknown or of daily life, caused an excess of bad habits such as smoking, drinking alcohol, excessive eating and abnormal sexual behavior.
Just reading the paper and listening to the world news, it’s a wonder that we can go on in this chaotic world. The…• • • • More • • • •
While many drugs are available for these conditions, the manufacturers who make them and the physicians who prescribe them are quick to point out that there are no cures for these conditions. From the research I’ve seen, I think nature provides the cure. There is a tree that grows in India called boswellia, which is frankincense, the gift given to Christ at His birth. It truly is not only a gift for Christ but a gift for the whole world to heal any upper respiratory conditions.
While drug companies have never successfully developed a drug that controls and downgrades an…• • • • More • • • •
Injuries are most common in the knee joint whether you are a professional athlete or just causing long-term excessive abuse to the knee joint. Of course, an athlete can experience immediate damage due to the trauma and aggressiveness of a sport.
Non-athletes can also experience knee damage from just long-term wear-and-tear due to poor techniques in lifting, incorrect techniques exercising and excessive weight. All those extra pounds bearing down on our knee joints can cause accelerated and long-term damage.
We could also include the hip joint as most elderly will experience damage of these joints as well as the knees…• • • • More • • • •
Curcumin, of course, is my most favorite herbal medicine, but after curcumin, my second choice is boswellia. Boswellia is a very powerful anti-inflammatory through the action of downgrading the 5-Lox enzyme. The 5-Lox enzyme in our metabolic function is related to preventing and downgrading 60 different diseases. It is particularly effective for upper respiratory tract conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD, allergies and sinusitis.
A highly studied form of boswellia contains 10% AKBA, the most effective component of boswellia, and less than 5% of beta-boswellic acid.This combination creates a boswellia that is up to 20 times more effective than plain…• • • • More • • • •
Many people who experience tingling and numbing of fingers and toes and burning feet, may have a nerve disorder commonly called neuropathy. Especially hard hit are diabetics.
It seems to be involved with a disorder of glucose (sugar) metabolism and increased insulin production. That’s why diabetics, type 1 and type II, have more nerve disorders referred to as diabetic neuropathy.
The best way to support the nerves is through special B vitamins with boswellia, an anti-inflammatory herb, and lipoic-acid, a water and fat soluble antioxidant so it works intracellular as well as outside of the cell. This combination would be…• • • • More • • • •
Research has shown that a blend of curcumin and boswellia is a probable solution for osteoarthritis of the knee. From the research and studies I have seen, curcumin and boswellia are very powerful anti-inflammatories with a host of other health benefits which include very powerful antioxidants with the decrease of free radical damage, improvement of immune function, liver and gallbladder function, as well as kidney function and improved cognitive function.
I would include vitamin D3 and a food grade boron to this blend of curcumin and boswellia. This combination would provide excellent results for anyone wanting to improve healthy knees…• • • • More • • • •
Viruses are responsible for colds and flus, which in some cases affects the majority of the population. Billions of dollars are spent on over-the-counter cold and flu medications and flu shots, which have limited success. Hundreds of thousands of days nationally are non-productive due to colds and flus. Sometimes, half the classroom is empty because of colds and flus.
When it comes to the flu shot, it’s a guessing game. They try to get the flu shots ready for the flu season not knowing which strain of virus is going to cause the flu that year. It doesn’t make any…• • • • More • • • •
It has gained its reputation based on centuries of use. It was commonly referred to as the medicine that healed the battle injuries of soldiers in medieval wars. It was the herbal folk medicine that has withstood the test of time. And centuries later, science has confirmed a Comfrey (Trauma Comfrey) cream for its healing properties for minor wounds, joint pain, sprains, trauma, strains, and back pain.
Look for a cream that is PA free and guaranteed safe to use even for children over 3. Science has proven that results can be felt within 15 minutes. For me, nature has…• • • • More • • • •
Drugs will never cure disease. Drugs do not provide a measure of health. Drugs were intended to be used during a crisis to save lives but they have become our healthcare system. Food is our best medicine. 95% of the world depends on plant medicines for their medicine. Curcumin and grape seed extract can prevent and treat a variety of diseases. And new research is being done on curcumin and grape seed extract OPCs all the time. As more people become more aware of these developments, I believe a second American revolution – a revolution in health – will be…• • • • More • • • •
Getting a flu shot is certainly your freedom of choice, however, it will NEVER be my choice. First of all, it may be only 10-20% effective for everyone, and less than 2% effective for people over 65 years of age. Why subject your body to an unknown result and possible toxicity? Why not let nature be your doctor? And, never accept an antibiotic to treat a cold or flu. Colds and the flu are caused by a virus which antibiotics do nothing for. There are plenty of natural herbs that have more powerful effects as an antiviral. My two favorite…• • • • More • • • •
You may have heard how healthy chocolate is, and while I love chocolate, I prefer to suggest Grape Seed Extract, which is 50 times more effective and stronger than chocolate, vitamin C, and E. For me, there are two very powerful, natural medicines, Curcumin and Grape Seed Extract. The combination of these two herbs can prevent and treat dozens of diseases, with really no significant side effects. So much more effective and safer than drugs.
Worried about cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, skin disease, Alzheimer’s disease, MS, Parkinson's disease, and more? These two…• • • • More • • • •
There is no question that statin drugs can lower your cholesterol, but is that really a good recommendation?
We use cholesterol for a variety of health promoting functions in the body. We make our sex hormones out of cholesterol. It’s no wonder that I talk to so many people who want to know how to increase their libido. I find that most who ask that question to be on statin drugs. Well, you can’t lower the substance that makes the sex hormones and wonder why you can’t perform. The best answer for libido is starting with good animal protein and…• • • • More • • • •
If there’s one thing that the pain of shingles, the harsh cough of respiratory infections, and the body aches of seasonal viruses all have in common, it is a compromised immune system. Additionally, each of these conditions can be tough to treat conventionally. In any event, the side effects of conventional treatment leave a lot to be desired. Unfortunately, you see a big pharmaceutical media push for treatment for shingles, and every fall brings a new call for flu vaccines that are essentially worthless.
But there is good news. There are powerful natural ingredients that help you avoid the grip…• • • • More • • • •
Edema is the retention of water to the extent that we can have swollen legs and ankles, swollen hands and even the accumulation of fluid in glaucoma and macular degeneration. Women, during their menstrual cycle, can retain as much as five to seven pounds of fluid during their period.
A safe way to eliminate excess fluid from the body without disrupting all the other minerals is to ensure an adequate intake of vitamin B6 in its biologically active form commonly known as P-5-P. To ensure that the P-5-P is more effective, it’s best to include a source of magnesium.

Here’s the case for supplementing with an herb that has a long folklore and traditional use. It has been used in China, Tibet, and Mongolia for thousands of years to increase energy levels, achieve peak mental and physical performance, lift moods, and reduce depression.
Now science, with hundreds of studies, has proven that rhodiola, also known as Arctic root, has indeed reduced depression safely without side effects. It increases energy levels, and reduces fatigue and stress. This herb is truly designed to counter the effects of the American lifestyle.
Many individuals are stressed out, depressed and experience chronic fatigue daily.…• • • • More • • • •
Bone spurs can be easily dissolved because they are not truly bone but a collection of calcium and mineral crystals that attach to the smooth surface of bone or internally in the arteries as plaque.
When the body becomes highly acidic, calcium, being an alkaline substance, is drawn out of the bone and soft tissue reserves to alkalize the body. The American diet is highly acidic, therefore, calcium is drawn out of these reserves for a long period of time eventually forming plaque in the arteries or bone spurs.
To dissolve this plaque or bone spur, it is important to…• • • • More • • • •
We know the B vitamins are very important for the nervous system. When our nerves are frayed, we experience stress and chronic fatigue more easily and we may even have depression. The commonly consumed B vitamins are very difficult to convert in the body to what is considered the biologically active form. Many people, particularly those who are type 1 and type 2 diabetics, cannot convert B vitamins in the liver to those that are used for various functions in the body. Additionally, 30% of the population are also poor converters of B vitamins.
There are B vitamins available, particularly…• • • • More • • • •
The adrenal glands are called into action every moment in a stressful situation. Once the stress is relieved, the adrenal glands return to normal function. However, in our modern day living, it seems there is a never ending day of stress. Stressful situations are any one of those conditions that cause us to become stressed out. It can be worry over financial matters, loss of a job, loss of a loved one, trying to squeeze 24 hours into an 8-hour day, running from one appointment to another, and flying or driving in traffic that seems to be endless.

The title refers to a form of neuropathy that is commonly present in diabetics and alcoholics although anyone can experience neuropathy. Neuropathy is a common problem that occurs in the absence in a number of nutritional factors that support the nervous system.
In order to correct the function and structure of the nervous system it would be prudent to use a number of B vitamins with specific minerals to control blood sugar level, a powerful antioxidant such as lipoic acid, and the anti-inflammatory properties of boswellia. The American diet is essentially refined carbohydrates and simple sugars.
