MEDICINE IS CHANGING–DRASTICALLY

The Power of Context

PART 3 of 4 articles

First, let me note that no one at Lotus Blossom Clinic is a trained veterinarian, and you are encouraged always to […]

Sure enough, after many hours of […]

OIL OF OREGANO: Can it take the place of Antibiotics?

oregano-oilI’ve gargled with it for a few seconds and immediately stopped a sore throat in its tracts.  It was used by Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine, in the 5th Century B.C.    I’m talking about Oregano with its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal effects.  It has also been known to kill MRSA, Listeria, and other pathogens.  And with modern antibiotics becoming less and less effective in the face of new and more virulent strains of bacteria, we need to go back to our ancestors’ medicine chests.

 

Oregano is both a common spice, and like […]

Help your baby achieve good mental development

 DHA is essential to life, and it is one of the most important nutrients needed for a developing fetus’ brain and eyes.  Indeed, this Omega-3 fatty acid is found in EVERY cell of the body.  It actually forms the cell membrane of the energy-producing part of our cells called the mitochondria.   It is highly concentrated in the retina and heart muscle cells as well.  Up to 15% of the weight of baby’s brain is DHA, and it comprises 93% of the oil content of the developing baby’s retina. Clearly DHA is needed for […]

It is relatively easy to create a healthy heart…why doesn’t everyone do it?   Of course, there are many reasons, one being this:  For years we’ve had so much flat-out wrong advice from the food industry, magazines, the government, and well-intentioned doctors that it is no wonder people are confused.   I’m here to clear all that up.  Wish me luck!

Here’s some of the “gold” right up front.  The demonized “Saturated Fats” are what nature WANTS us to consume, and what the vegetable oil industry has been touting as “heart-healthy vegetable […]
