Heart-healthy diet is as effective as drugs (with fewer side effects) for many adults with high blood pressure

If you have high blood pressure, you might want to seriously consider changing your diet before you start taking on the risks of medication as a new study shows a heart-healthy diet can be every bit as effective.

In a study that involved more than 400 adults with stage 1 high blood pressure, the combination of a low-salt diet and the heart-healthy “DASH” diet was found to lower systolic blood pressure dramatically. This effect was particularly pronounced in people who have higher baseline systolic readings. Continue reading

I am in LUST with Roasted Brussels Sprouts

In 2015 and 2016, my two great friends with whom I had served in Viet Nam back in the late 1960’s and I met up for one of our annual get-togethers – this time in California – and a rarity – at the same location two years in a row, where we had the pleasure of some much needed R&R at the Ice Man’s brother’s Beach House at Cayucos by-the-Sea. The three of us LOVE great food, and so it was common for us to travel just South to Morro Bay – usually for breakfast – but sometimes dinner. And then on to one of my favorite places – The Grill Haus in San Luis Opisbo, where I always found the food, the atmosphere and the staff to be a wonder. (Hmmmmm – I wonder what ever happened to… never-mind.)

It was at the Grill Haus that I discovered one of the most amazing dishes (on the plate) that I had ever been privileged to savor – and a variation of that recipe I share with you now. Is it the healthist meal you might ever eat? Probably not – but once in awhile… just once in awhile my friends. As my Great-Grandmother’s would say, “All things in moderation.” ~ Ed.

Apple Seeds and Cancer

This is What the Government Has Been Hiding From Us for Years

You have probably heard the saying that one apple a day can keep the doctor away. This is certainly true because an apple is one of the healthiest and nutrition-dense fruits in the world. One apple provides an estimated 10 percent or more of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C and fiber. Moreover, these nutrients have anti-cancer properties, boost the immune system, aid in weight loss, and prevent free radical damage. Continue reading

11 Plants Native Americans Use to Cure Everything (From Joint Pain to Cancer)

The Cherokee is a Native American tribe that is indigenous to the Southeastern United States. They believe that the Creator has given them a gift of understanding and preserving medicinal herbs.The Cherokee trust the healing and preventative properties of nature’s pharmacy. Because many plants become scarce throughout history, the Cherokee promote proper gathering techniques. The old ones have taught them that if you are gathering, you should only pick every third plant you find. This ensures that enough specimens still remain and will continue to propagate. Here are some of the medicinal plants that were commonly used and foraged for by the Cherokee tribe. Continue reading

Should YOU be trying the ADD diet?

~ Forewords ~
Maybe this will wake up a few more folks on how important the pH balance is to your health. I am not sure I would have gone thru this *de-tox* recipe so not sure if it will entice some folks or not. When I learned of the pH balance in TX I simply reduced the amount of ACIDIC foods and increased the amount of ALKALINE foods and within a week my pH was holding at the 6.5 level. My initial pH test strip indicated I was about as acidic as one could get – all due to the diet I had eaten all my life. No wonder I had so many sicknesses and health issues in my early life. Since I have made the alkaline foods (and drinks) just how I live – I have not had so much as a sniffle. My health issues seem to revolve around bone related problems. Continue reading

The 8 WORST pieces of advice medical doctors give their patients

Just one century ago in America, all of the most popular chronic diseases and disorders that we know so well today barely existed, including cancer, diabetes type 2, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, osteoporosis, Parkinson’s and heart disease. Still, nearly every medical doctor in the United States blames hereditary genes for these preventable health problems, as if somehow a few generations of humans changed hundreds of thousands of years of evolution basically “overnight.”

Doctors don’t receive training or coursework in nutrition during their 8 to 16 years of college and field work, so of course they’re not going to have any real consumption recommendations for preventing or reversing what IS preventable and reversible. Continue reading

Obesity Responsible for 40 Percent of Diagnosed Cancers

Nearly 30 percent of the global population is overweight or obese and this has a significant impact on cancer rates, experts say. In a 2014 report, obesity was linked to an estimated 500,000 cancer cases worldwide each year. More recent statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows the reality is far grimmer than that — at least in the U.S. Continue reading

Prostate cancer ELIMINATED by combination of powerful nutrients in apple peels, turmeric root and grape skins

A recent study published in Precision Oncology revealed that a potent combination of compounds from turmeric root, apple peels, and grapes help keep prostate cancer at bay. To carry out the study, a team of health experts at the University of Texas at Austin identified 142 natural compounds that may potentially fend off the disease. The research team then tested these compounds on mouse and human cell lines to identify which ones may mitigate the growth of prostate cancer cells when used either alone or in combination with other compounds.

Obesity? Heart Disease? Diabetes? Cancer?

Maybe it’s not your genes–it’s your lifestyle

For so long, we’ve been conditioned to think our genes are rigid and unchangeable; and they alone define our health and longevity. We expect chronic disease to be treated like the common cold. Take a pill and go back to work.

You can’t fix obesity or diabetes with a pill; some pills (like statin drugs) actually raise your risk of developing diabetes or having a heart attack, and if you consume the typical American diet that consists of over one hundred pounds of refined white sugar and corn syrup per year—you are actually enabling diabetes. And for diabetics who have been conditioned to think diet sodas and artificial sugar will keep your blood sugar stable—think again. Sugar substitutes are toxic chemicals that kill your nerves. Literally—it excites them to death. Continue reading

Why An Alkaline Approach Can Successfully Treat Cancer

In the 1930’s, an interesting natural cancer treatment was proposed as a simple, effective answer to cancer – almost any cancer. This treatment approach is not well known because it is considered alternative or experimental – or even dangerous – by the medical and scientific community and hence has been referenced primarily in obscure publications outside the mainstream press. Continue reading

Is Liver Good For You?
It’s an unfortunate reality that the foods we tend to eat the most of are the ones that are the least packed with nutrients. Many of us will eat large quantities of potato chips, chocolate bars, processed sausage rolls and various other heavily processed and mass-produced foods that fill us up but don’t provide us with any actual goodness (and don’t even fill us up for all that long!). This is the mistake of looking at food as fuel rather than as the crucial resource that the body uses to build itself. And by extension, an awful lot of the very most nutritious and healthy foods actually don’t get eaten at all! (Continue to full article)

Reverse heart disease without meds

Most of us are used to the age-old saying “Live and learn,” but when you’re providing care to people with preventable chronic disease, you realize very quickly that we don’t have that luxury indefinitely. So, that saying changes to “Learn and live.”

In the next 20 years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) projects that heart disease deaths will increase sharply. In that same time, the AHA estimates that the percentage of the US population living with heart disease will reach over 40%. Continue reading

How Much Turmeric Is Too Much?

First of all, let me state for the record that I absolutely love turmeric. Whenever I am walking through a city and get a whiff of warm, savory curry, I immediately want to track down the source. I have found some of my favorite Indian restaurants this way! I also love turmeric in spice rubs, sweet dishes and beverages. It’s safe to say that it’s one of my favorite spices of all time.

Along with being delicious, turmeric is also incredibly healthy. It’s so healthy that many people take turmeric — or its active compound, curcumin — in supplement form. There are a great many reasons to do so (more on that below), but how much is too much? Continue reading

Top 8 natural remedies that would end most preventable diseases in America

Have you noticed that it’s almost impossible to discuss the power of natural remedies with someone who has been brainwashed by allopathic medicine? Even if you talk your friend, neighbor, relative or co-worker into mustering up the courage to ask their MD about a particular holistic option, their pill-pushing doctor will quickly discredit the remedy and then prescribe some chemical-laced quack pills that help that doctor get front row seats at the next major sporting event, thanks to their pharmaceutical representative.

Anti-Inflammation Guide: The Rules and Foods You Need To Know

Inflammation. We’ve all dealt with it in some form or another, whether it’s a stiff joint, a fever, or an infected wound. But for some people, inflammation causes much more serious damage. Diseases like arthritis wreak havoc with the joints, causing enormous amounts of pain and suffering. When infections get out of control, inflammation can spread throughout the body, causing additional health complications.

Often, the standard treatment for inflammation is pharmaceuticals, but as well all know, these sometimes cause more harm than good. Even simple drugs like Ibuprofen can destroy the stomach.

Fortunately, there are a number of natural remedies that can significantly reduce the amount of inflammation in the body. Continue reading

1/3 of all cancers could be prevented with these plant-based nutrients

Each year, over 10 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer, one million of them are Americans. While there is a common misconception that whether or not you will get cancer is pretty much luck of the draw, in reality, only about 10 percent of cancers are attributable to genetic factors. As many as 90 percent of all cancers can be blamed squarely on lifestyle and environmental factors, and are entirely avoidable. And there is even more good news: An article in the journal Nature states that a third of all cancer deaths are totally preventable “through increased consumption of natural compounds” which prevent cell duplication and induce apoptosis (cancer cell suicide).

Roundup’s Toxic Chemical Glyphosate, Found In 100% Of California Wines Tested

Glyphosate usage has gotten so out of control that it’s seemingly taken on a life of its own and is now showing up even in foods that haven’t been directly sprayed, namely the grapes used to make organic wine.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is the most used agricultural chemical in history. It’s used in a number of different herbicides (700 in all), but Roundup is by far the most widely used. Continue reading
