The 7 Most Prescribed Drugs In The World And Their Natural Counterparts

We don’t have to live in a medicated world, but we certainly choose to. The crux of the matter is that we refuse to proactively think about prevention because we reactively commit to treating the symptoms of underlying health problems. This is the allopathic model. We want the quick fix so we can continue our poor lifestyle and dietary habits. It doesn’t have to be this way, but it is. We can blame doctors, the medical institutions and healthcare systems all we want, but self-responsibility is our only recourse if we are ever to surface from this mess. There are no excuses–if you’re taking one of these drugs, consult with a Natural Health Practitioner this week about phasing out your medication and phasing in these powerful natural foods and remedies.

Top 10 Anti-Cancer Vegetables

 

If you haven’t noticed, we are constantly bombarded with pleas from charities for cancer research money.

“Race for the Cure, Stand Up to Cancer, Buy Pink products, grow a Movember mustache….”

This is often accompanied by the message  that “we are running out of funding for cancer research”.  And of course this is a problem, because “without funding for more research, we will never find a cure”.

Cue the shots of bald women and children poisoned by chemo, accompanied by dramatic music. Then insert a high-profile celebrity to say, “The cure is just around the corner.
Together we can make cancer history. Please give today.”

Here’s the reality. The mega billion dollar pharmaceutical industry has plenty of money to fund research, they would just prefer that you fund it with your donations instead of theirs.

Horses Help Humans Manage Stress

Horses Help Humans Manage Stress … research paper by Cryshta Avera, posted by Soulseeker Journey, May 3, 2016

“Abstract —
Stress has physiological effects on the human body that can cause chronic illness or disease if maintained long term. The purpose of this research is to provide information on the effect horses have on the human body systems, specifically related to the relief of side effects caused by stress. This research sought scholarly sources of education on the definition of stress and its effects on health, as well as equine therapy, and therapeutic benefits of being in mother nature as a natural accompaniment to being with horses. Also, examples of horses causing relief of stress, chronic illness, and other health conditions were sought out and presented. Through this research I discovered that the key component to horses being able to relieve stress in humans is the oxytocin release that is triggered and the domino effect oxytocin has on the human body, physiologically. All humans who are interested in horses and do not have any fear of being around horses should consider adding time with horses as part of a stress management plan.”

RAW HONEY KILLS ALL

The health benefits of raw, unprocessed honey are well known, but in Australia, scientists recently made a startling discovery – that one particular, obscure type of honey is capable of killing just about everything scientists throw at it, including some of the worst bacteria known to man.

The findings were published in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (June 2009), and could hold special significance at a time when many of the world’s top antibiotics are failing, especially against resistant “superbugs.”

The honey in question in known as Manuka Honeywhich is produced in New Zealand and also goes by the name of jelly bush honey … ”

Acupressure for Horses Explained

By Casie Bazay, NBCAAM

Acupressure, which uses finger pressure on specific points on the body, has been around for thousands of years, and is believed to actually pre-date acupuncture (which uses needles to stimulate those points instead).  Both acupressure and acupuncture are a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and are used all over the world now on humans and animals alike.

In order to understand how acupressure works, you must first understand how TCM views the body.  In TCM, the body is not seen as being made up of many various parts, but instead as one whole, integrated system.  The mind, body, and spirit are all connected as a single entity.  A life force, known as Chi (Qi) flows throughout the body via meridians, or internal pathways. There are said to be 12 major meridians, each one named for the internal organ with which it is associated.

Chi has two major aspects:  Yin and Yang, which are opposite, but mutually dependent on one another.  If the body is healthy, Yin and Yang are considered to be perfect balance.  In an unhealthy body, Yin and Yang are out of balance, and physical symptoms often arise if the imbalance is not soon resolved.  Acupressure can help to restore the balance of Yin and Yang within the body.

Each if the 12 Major Meridians contains acu-points, usually at specific anatomical locations.  When an imbalance occurs in the body, Chi is said to be obstructed.  By applying pressure on specific acu-points, Chi can be released to flow freely throughout the body once again, and the balance of Yin and Yang can be restored.

In recent years, Western Medicine has sought to understand acupressure and explain it in terms more comprehensible to the Western World.  Although there are some aspects of acupressure and TCM that are nearly impossible to translate into Western terms, many Western scientists believe that acupressure (or acupuncture) stimulates the body’s ability to produce endorphins (natural painkillers).

Acupressure is becoming much more accepted in the Western world and is often used in conjunction with Western medical treatments.  Some effects of acupressure include:

  • reducing pain
  • relieving muscle spasms
  • resolving injuries more quickly by removing toxins and increasing blood supply
  • enhancing mental clarity
  • releasing natural cortisone to reduce swelling
  • building the body’s immune system

Acupressure Technique

When applying acupressure to your horse, typically the forefinger or thumb is used.  Light pressure is usually preferable and  is tolerated by most horses.  Extreme sensitivity in an acu-point usually indicates excess Chi in that area.  Pressure is usually applied to each selected acu-point for 10-20 seconds or until a release, or visible sign such as licking/chewing, head-lowering, yawning, etc., is shown by the horse.

Holistic Doctors’ Deaths

by Erin Elizabeth at Health Nut news. (see link below to read more)

When I broke the news to the health world, as gently as I could, about the beloved Jeffrey Bradstreet MD, I never intended it to become some kind of series.

I was honored to do the first interview with the Bradstreet family, and commend them for their bravery as they search for the answers.

My better half (a holistic doctor) and I knew several of the doctors well, and our hearts go out to their friends and family. I cannot even imagine what they’re going through.

I appreciate the few media organizations who have had the guts to share these stories; including the New York Times, (who wrote me requesting info), The Guardian UK, and network affiliates around the US. Sadly, most mainstream sites barely cover one doctor, let alone the dozens we’ve had die this year if we count mysterious accidents, murders, alleged suicides or unexplained sudden deaths.
