  1. The humble jar of honey in your cabinet is more than just an exquisite sweetener -- it's also an incredible survival food and medicine chest rolled into one. Known throughout history for its health merits, honey is a broad spectrum healer. Heart disease, high cholesterol, influenza, wounds and infections respond well to this common and seemingly simple golden liquid. Since certain types of honey are more effective than others, choose wisely to enjoy the maximum benefit. Ultimate survival food and health enhancing wonder Honey is one of the most outstanding survival foods that can stock a pantry. When stored in an airtight container and kept cool and dry, the shelf life of honey is remarkable -- it does not turn rancid, ever. In fact, archaeologists have found jars of honey in ancient Egyptian tombs that are still fit for human consumption. When selecting honey, it is important to focus on raw, organic and unfiltered varieties for the most bio-active properties. Once honey is heated, many of the health promoting characteristics disappear. Nutrient dense, honey is packed with probiotics, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It is also calorie rich and helps to maintain energy levels. High in B vitamins along with vitamin C, honey is also a good source of magnesium, calcium, copper, iron, sulfur and zinc. Honey helps to boost athletic performance and supports a healthy immune system as well. For those with Type II diabetes or high cholesterol, honey is a good choice. Scientists found that when taken daily, honey actually lowered serum cholesterol and did not spike blood sugar levels like refined sugar. A word of caution: Babies under the age of one year should not be given honey due to the threat of infantile botulism. Manuka - The queen of honey When times are tough and medical care is erratic, manuka honey is a readily available universal medicine. Considered to be five times more potent than standard honey, manuka is a powerful food. Have a cut or burn to mend? Manuka honey is an excellent salve. Antibacterial features promote wound healing and tissue regeneration. Manuka is also anti-fungal -- a potent treatment for ring worm and athletes foot. Likewise, many claim that manuka honey does not inflame internal fungal disorders like Candida albicans. Gum disease? Surprisingly, research has found that manuka reduces plaque and bacteria in the mouth when rubbed onto the gums. Sick with the flu? Manuka is a superstar here too. A study in Spain discovered compounds in honey that destroy the influenza virus. What's more, manuka has been shown to aid weight loss, heal bladder infections, ease indigestion, soothe a sore throat, relieve arthritis, quiet an upset stomach and foster longevity. No need to wait for the collapse of civilization or an economic meltdown to enjoy the benefits of this rich liquid gold. With an abundance of healing properties, honey is a delicious medicine that encourages a sweet and healthful life at any time.
  2. High blood pressure is no longer just an affliction of the elderly, as more than one-third of young people between the ages of 16 and 34 are now said to suffer from some form of hypertension. And a recent study out of California revealed that, if left unchecked, this cardiovascular malady, even in its mild form, can lead to premature aging and brain damage. The conventional solution to this growing health epidemic is to simply take more blood pressure medications like angiotensin-receptor blockers, which have been scientifically linked to causing cancer and other serious health problems. But the alternative route, which should really just be called the common-sense route, is to eat more foods and herbs that naturally lower blood pressure without causing any harmful side effects. Here are six natural and quick remedies that will help you keep your blood pressure in check, and avoid the long-term health pitfalls associated with prolonged hypertension: 1) Raw almonds. Eating just a handful of truly raw almonds every day can make a significant difference in keeping your blood pressure levels in check. A key component of the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension Diet, also known as DASH, raw almonds are rich in monounsaturated fats, which have been scientifically proven to help lower blood cholesterol levels, reduce arterial inflammation, and ultimately lower blood pressure levels. Even though they are high in fat and calories, almonds also help promote weight loss and the building of lean muscle mass, which means they naturally promote healthy circulation. When eaten in conjunction with other blood pressure-lowering nuts like walnuts, almonds are one of the most powerful cardiovascular "superfoods" available. 2) Cayenne pepper. Arguably one of the fastest foods to lower blood pressure, cayenne pepper is a powerful vasodilator, which means it helps expand blood vessels and improve blood flow. This effect naturally lowers blood pressure levels by increasing the rate at which blood flows throughout the circulatory system, which in turn takes some of the pressure off arterial walls. Mixing one or two teaspoons of cayenne pepper in either warm water or tea with both honey and aloe vera is a powerful homemade remedy for alleviating hypertension. If this beverage is too spicy for your tastes, taking cayenne pepper capsule supplements is another great option for lowering blood pressure naturally. 3) Coconut water. Rich in potassium, electrolytes, and other important nutrients, coconut water has been shown to help significantly lower blood pressure levels in most of the people that drink it. A recent study published in the West Indian Medical Journal found that drinking coconut water helped 71 percent of participants achieve a significant reduction in systolic pressure, and 29 percent of participants achieve a significant reduction in diastolic pressure. The results were even more amplified when participants drank both coconut water and mauby, a tropical drink made from buckthorn tree bark. 4) Raw cacao. Rich in flavonoids and other anti-inflammatory nutrients, raw cacao is another food-based weapon against hypertension that you will want to keep readily stocked in your health arsenal. Not only do the flavonoids in cacao function as adaptogens to help the body better deal with stress, which is a common cause of hypertension, but they also help regulate stress hormone levels throughout the body, which play a critical role in blood pressure regulation. Numerous studies have also found that cacao flavonoids demonstrably reduce blood pressure levels upon consumption, resulting in an average blood pressure reduction of 4.7/2.8 millimeters of mercury (mmHg). Cacao flavonoids also help protect the body against stroke and heart disease, which are commonly linked to high blood pressure. 5) Turmeric. Modern science is just barely hitting the tip of the iceberg concerning the superfood capacity of turmeric, also commonly known as curcumin. But one of the herb's already known benefits concerns its abilities to significantly decrease inflammation throughout the body, which is a primary cause of high cholesterol and even high blood pressure. By actively reducing inflammation, turmeric helps improve cardiovascular function and maintain healthy blood flow. When taken alongside non-irradiated black pepper, the primary active ingredient of which is piperine, turmeric is a powerhouse at loosening up blood vessels and clearing the buildup that often leads to high blood pressure. Turmeric is also a natural blood thinner, which is another way this powerful herb aids in the fight against hypertension. 6) Garlic. A 2010 study out of Australia found that garlic is another powerful food-based medicine that naturally lowers cholesterol levels and reduces blood pressure. Taking garlic tablets or capsule supplements is a great way to regularly consume the herb in high enough amounts to derive significant benefits.
  3. What does it take to disabuse the majority of food consumers that a no or low fat diet is actually unhealthy. There have been conventional cardiologists who've recently asserted that we need healthy fats to maintain good cardiovascular health. They have debunked the myth of cholesterol as the cause of clogged arteries and heart attacks and warned about statin drugs' dangers. Statin drugs do lower cholesterol. But brain and nervous system tissue need cholesterol and other types of fats to rebuild and maintain proper function. Statin users have a high rate of dementia, including Alzheimer's. Skin cholesterol is what starts the conversion process of UVB sunlight exposure to vitamin D3 in the liver. Without cholesterol, there's no conversion, thus insufficient vitamin D3. Now, recent mainstream research discoveries have shown that a high fat diet can reverse aggressive cancers. Don't expect any faction of the cancer industry to disclose this. They all need to receive funding to research patentable drugs that don't cure while they keep killing with chemo, radiation, and surgery to enrich Big Pharma. The high fat ketogenic diet - tried and true There are several anecdotal cancer reversals with this diet, but the most amazing involves a former world power lifting champion, trainer, and successful business owner Dr. Fred Hatfield. He has the doctor title because he completed graduate studies in kinesiology. Hatfield was diagnosed with aggressive, metastatic skeletal cancer. Three doctors gave the same prognosis of three months left to live. He desperately researched and came across the ketogenic diet as something he should try. University of South Florida metabolic researcher Dr. Dominic D'Agostino had discovered that cancerous mice who were put on high fat non-carbohydrate glucose diets recovered from cancer better than mice on chemotherapy. Maybe that's not saying much, but Fred Hatfield had nothing to lose and put it to the test. He avoided all carbohydrates and sugars. He consumed a fair amount of good meats and lots of good fats, not cheap trans-fatty acid hydrogenated oils or margarine that are one molecule away from being plastic and cannot be metabolized. Among the good fats are eggs, avocado, cold pressed olive, flax seed, hemp oils, real butter, and the once vilified coconut oil. Yes, even the maligned saturated fats. Hatfield's cancer cleared up in a few, short months and he was still in good health a year later. Researcher Dr. D'Agostino has received communication from a dozen others who have successfully used a ketogenic diet to reverse cancer. Cancer cells ferment glucose to thrive because they are deprived of oxygen that normal healthy cells use for metabolism. Good, healthy fats deliver fatty acids that are converted to energy bestowing ketones when the body's cells are deprived of glucose. That's how coconut oil has reversed Alzheimer's. The conversion of ketones provides energy to brain cells that aren't metabolizing oxygen as well as before. Normal cells can convert ketones for energy; cancer cells cannot. So replacing glucose with ketones starves cancer cells. No side effects, except for weight loss. Take that conventional fat-free weight loss programs. CBN health reporter Lorrie Johnson, who covered the Hatfield story, claims it's okay to modify the ketogenic diet somewhat after cancer is reversed. She uses a less strict ketogenic diet after surviving her cancer. Introducing some complex carbs that aren't easily converted to glucose seems okay without cancer. Regardless of the well known fact that cancer cells thrive on simple sugars, oncologists never warn their patients about this. Instead, they are fed ice cream or pastries often while undergoing IV chemotherapy. All alternative cancer therapies have a cancer diet foundation that excludes sugar and simple carbohydrates that convert to glucose easily
  4. Cleansing is important. It is so important that there are several organs that are responsible for keeping the body cleansed. Chief among these organs is the liver. Responsible for the regulation of our metabolism and purifying our blood, the liver plays a key role in our overall health. It is for this reason that we must strive to keep our livers in proper working order. Some of the ways to accomplish this is through drinking plenty of fresh, clean water, abstaining or moderating alcohol consumption, abstain from consuming products that slow liver function (e.g. artificial sweeteners) and cleansing the liver at least twice a year. How to cleanse Master herbalist and acupuncturist Dr. Christopher Hobbs provides additional insight into the liver cleansing process. Dr. Hobbs states that flushing the liver allows for the elimination of waste while stimulating the production of bile. Cleansing also has a cooling effect on the liver which increases high functioning and necessary repairs. Follow these instructions from Dr. Hobbs for a homemade cleanse: Ingredients • Lemons or limes • Garlic • Ginger • Olive oil Directions Squeeze one cup of fresh citrus juice (lemon and/or lime; grapefruit juice can be blended to help with taste). Mix the juice of one or two cloves of garlic and raw ginger juice into the citrus juice. Add one tablespoon of high quality, organic olive oil. A small amount of spring water can be added but the more sour the mix, the more helpful it will be for your liver. Do this for 10 days followed by three days off and then another 10 days for two cycles (will total 20 days of cleansing total). This cleanse should be completed twice a year once in the spring and once in the fall. Consuming three to eight ounces of the juice for each serving should prove very beneficial. In addition, drink a cup of a cleansing tea such as Polari tea or any other high quality organic liver detoxification tea one hour after consuming the juice. No food should be consumed in the hour between consuming the juice and drinking the tea. Whether you make your own liver detoxifying juices or follow a different preparation, make sure it is of the highest quality possible to assist in proper assimilation of the nutrients so you can achieve the desired results. If you have any questions about quality preparations or if you are currently experiencing chronic liver dysfunction please consult with a trusted professional healthcare provider with knowledge of holistic practices and be sure to ask all the questions you desire.

  6. If you are looking to lose weight this holiday season, then these 10 common weight loss tips are sure to help you out: 1. Eat More Fiber Fiber - which is plentiful in sprouted-grain breads, the skin of fruits, and oats – may be the easiest and most effective way to boost weight loss. Fiber, research shows, may slow the breakdown and absorption of nutrients, which could lead to a much slower release of sugar in your blood. And this could positively affect your insulin levels. Insulin, in elevated amounts, may promote weight gain and fat storage, therefore potentially negating your weight loss efforts. Plus, fiber-rich diets have also been shown to control appetite better by making you feel fuller (for longer too!), which could easily prevent overeating when you eat your next meal. It is recommended to get at least 25 grams per day of fiber in order to promote greater weight loss! 2. Start Small You should start by making small changes to your overall lifestyle. If you don’t exercise now, try adding in a five- or ten-minute walk to your day. Or change out ONE unhealthy food you enjoy, and replace it with something healthy. These small changes to your lifestyle may result in slow – but very gradual – weight loss! 3. Stay Away From Processed Foods Food like processed meats, cookies, crackers, and snack treats – may end up doing nothing but boosting your weight gain. Most processed foods are full of refined white flours, sugars, fats, and trans-fats, which could only BOOST your weight gain and may pose dangers to your health. Stick with as much whole food as possible. Foods such as fruits, lean meats, and vegetables are perfect for keeping your weight loss on track. 4. Weigh-in Every Day Most weight loss gurus say that you should only weigh yourself once a week, in order to prevent frustration and motivation. However, I am here to tell you, it may not be the best advice. Weighing in regularly (i.e., every day) may keep you on track, since you will be able to track and see q steady decline (or ups and downs). Then you will have more knowledge on things you need to change, like eating patterns, in order to lose as much weight as possible. The downside to this, however, is that you may feel discouraged at first when there are small fluctuations in your weight. However, once you make the appropriate changes (snacking, portion size, and meal timing) you should see the scale start turning back - or in the right direction. 5. Include Green Tea What can you say about green tea? Everything! Green tea has been shown in research to boost metabolism, therefore helping you to burn more fat throughout the day. This ancient – and one of the most widely consumed beverages – has also been linked to better blood sugar control. The reason: green tea is full of antioxidants and polyphenols – like ECGC – which has been widely researched for their respective stimulators for weight loss. You should replace sodas, sweetened beverages, or even diet soda for green tea. This may boost your metabolism and lead to better – no, GREATER – weight loss results. 6. Water, Water, Water Did you know that THIRST is often confused with hunger? It’s true! Drinking enough water is a very BASIC tip, but it’s also the most commonly overlooked weight loss secret! Since your body is mostly made of water, then you would think that you would want to always stay properly hydrated! Drinking water before a meal may lead to less food intake – due to fullness – which will help you eat less. And, water is a great substitute for high-calorie, sugar-laden sodas and energy drinks. 7. Eat SLOWER Want an easy trick for the dinner table: eat SLOW! It has been shown that it takes 20 minutes for your brain to register when there is food in your stomach and when you are full. By eating slower, you take your time, and allow those signals to reach your brain. This could lead to satisfaction as opposed to overeating at breakfast, lunch, or dinner! And - trust me - this will be GREAT for your hips, butt, thighs, and ABS! 8. Substitute Foods Like I mentioned in number two, try substituting unhealthy foods with healthier ones! This may reduce your caloric intake, plus give you nutrients such as fiber (skin of apples), vitamins, and minerals that your body needs to boost fat loss. Plus, healthier foods may be lower in calories and fat, which may be perfect for boosting calorie burn and promoting weight loss. 9. EXERCISE You already know that exercise may make you healthy and fit. But in order to use exercise as a way to burn fat, you need to vary your intensity. Of course, regular cardio and strength training may burn fat and help you get a lean, trim figure, but high-intensity exercise has been shown to boost weight loss and fat burning MORE effectively than other forms of exercise. Also, the hottest fitness trend for 2013 – body weight training – may be another way to boost fat burning while varying your intensity. So, if you are looking to boost fat burning and get in the BEST shape of life, consider trying interval training mixed with bodyweight training to maximize your body’s fat burning potential. 10. Get More Sleep Many studies have shown that lack of sleep may be detrimental to your fat loss success. Lack of sleep may cause you to crave and seek out high-calorie foods – that, most of the time, go straight to your hips, thighs, and butt. Plus, sleep deprivation may alter your mood, increase fogginess, poor concentration, and low motivation to exercise or eat at right. Shoot for at least six to eight hours of sleep to maximize your fat and weight loss results. Lose More Weight – Today! If you are on a quest to lose weight, then these 10 common sense weight loss tips are for YOU!
