Green Tea Better Against Flu Than Vaccine?

Natural Health
Supplementation can be a powerful force against disease. And, recent evidence gives additional evidence for the benefit that Green Tea supplementation can be against the flu. Green tea supplements prevent flu better than vaccination "(NaturalNews) Flu season is now in full swing and seasonal vaccinations are being pushed from every corner. Nonetheless, a recent clinical trial showed that green tea-based supplements reduced the risk of flu by 75%. This is far better than the 60% risk reduction recently reported in the Lancet for vaccinations. Given that green tea provides a host of other health benefits and none of the risks of injections, it would appear to be a far superior alternative to vaccination. Green Tea: Natural Antiviral and Immune Enhancer For many years it has been known that green tea…

The Effort to Stop the Use of Supplements by “Big Pharma”

Health Freedoms
There are forces at work trying to take away your right to use vitamins and herbs. Think about it. Anything that "completes" with the drug industry is a direct competitor of that industry... it makes financial sense for them to "take out" the competition! Dietary supplements are fast becoming an endangered species "(NaturalNews) First the powers that be create a problem to get a reaction that gives them the green light to produce a solution to satisfy their ulterior motives. The problem, whether true or not, is presented through the media to also condition the public for accepting their desired solution. A perfect example of this strategy has occurred as a backdrop for accepting the elimination of vitamins and supplements, which may occur sooner than you think. The messages put…

Antibiotics Come With Side Effects

Natural Health
I have said before that powerful antibiotics can cause issues with your health. Even allopathic doctors are stressing the need to cut back on "casual" antibiotic use. "Antibiotic" can be be broken down into the root words "anti," meaning "against," and "bio," meaning "life." Antibiotics are designed to kill germs, bacteria, etc. but they also kill good bacteria, like intestinal flora. Now, it appears people taking antibiotics for acne, are at risk for sore throats. Antibiotics For Acne Linked To Sore Throat "According to a study published Online First by Archives of Dermatology, one of the JAMA/Archives journals, taking oral antibiotics to treat acne seems to be linked to reported symptoms of pharyngitis (sore throat). The investigators explain: 'Many inconsistent concerns have been voiced about the safety of long-term use…

Orthomolecular Nutrition and Dementia

Natural Health
Reuters news service has reported that a study at Oxford University has determined that orthomolecular doses of B vitamins can cut in half the rate of brain srinkage in older people with memory problems. Scientists from Oxford University said their two-year clinical trial was the largest to date into the effect of B vitamins on so-called "mild cognitive impairment" - a major risk factor for Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. "This is a very dramatic and striking result. It's much more than we could have predicted," said David Smith of Oxford's department of pharmacology, who co-led the trial. "It is our hope that this simple and safe treatment will delay development of Alzheimer's in many people who suffer from mild memory problems." Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) affects around…

An Example: Why Government Control of Health Issues Is a Recipe for Failure

Health Freedoms
You know that I am all about personal freedom when it comes to healthcare. I stand for YOU being able to determine what is best for YOUR personal health. When a government (any government) steps in and says that they know best, it is always going to end badly! Governmental dictates are subject to lobbyists, and other political pressures, that usually mean that whatever they end up saying makes NO sense. Here's a PERFECT example from the European Union (EU.) They have determined that, legally, water can no longer be considered a "cure" for dehydration! Say what?!? EU SAYS WATER IS NOT HEALTHY "THE EU was ridiculed last night after it took three years to issue a new rule that water cannot be sold as healthy. In a scarcely believable…

The Health Benefits of Mushrooms

Natural Health
Not all that people call, or recognize as "mushrooms" are edible. It is important not to confuse mold and other fungi with actual edible mushrooms. But, those that are the correct, edible variety, have a great many nutrients that are very beneficial! Dr. Mercola has an article on his web site that is very revealing! The "Antioxidant Superstar" Chinese People Eat Daily In short: "Virtually all mushrooms provide excellent nutrition, such as protein, vitamins and enzymes, and many have potent medicinal value. Mushrooms are excellent sources of antioxidants in general, such as polyphenols and selenium, but they also contain antioxidants that are unique to mushrooms, such as ergothioneine, which is now starting to be recognized as a 'master antioxidant.' Whole organic mushrooms and whole food-derived mushroom supplements offer potent immune-boosting…

Pure Water

Natural Health
Pure water, organic foods, no preservatives or chemicals... sounds good, right? A good pathway to healing and health! Well, pure water is getting harder to come by, so I would like to recommend something I use, (and I have no personal financial stake in, by the way!) I use a "ZeroWater" pitcher at home to filter tap water and reduce dissolved solids. It may not be the "be all and end all," and I know may will say I should just use distilled water, but Zerowater is easier, and I have found that in my case, at least, if it isn't easy to do, I sometimes just won't do it! So, check out Zerowater... I can personally recommend it, and it is the only water filtration system that has been…
