THE HIDDEN DANGER IN NATURAL DISASTERS

By |September 5th, 2017|acupuncture, Allergies & Autoimmune, Anxiety/Stress, Cancer, Chinese Medicine, Food as Medicine, Intestinal Health|

“Discovering more joy does not save us from the inevitability of hardship and heartbreak. In fact, we may cry more easily, but we will laugh more easily too. Perhaps we are just more alive. Yet as we discover more joy, we can face suffering in a way that ennobles rather than embitters. We have hardship without becoming hard. We have heartbreaks without being broken.” 
― Desmond TutuThe Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

 

It would seem this summer has been more stressful than usual in our world.  There […]

LION’S MANE FOR THE BRAIN & NERVES

 

MEET THE MUSHROOM MAN

NEW MEDICINE: 
GUIDING LIGHTS OF THE FUTURE

This is a powerful time in Medicine!  A few game changers are coming to the frontline to radically SHIFT the possibilities for how healthy we are, how long we live, and how we do it.

GUIDING LIGHT #1: 

MINI MIGHTY MICROBES
They are super tiny;  100,000 may fit on a pinhead.  They were the first life, over 3.5 Billion years ago.  Microbes (bacteria) created our oxygen-rich atmosphere, and they have outlived all 5 major extinctions on our planet. Without them we couldn’t breathe or digest our […]

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

By |March 29th, 2016|Allergies & Autoimmune, Drugs, Environmental Health, Food as Medicine, Intestinal Health, Uncategorized|

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 […]

The New Frontier in Medicine is the trillions of tiny microbes in our guts which determine everything from one’s propensity to gain and hold weight to how our brains function.  We hear and see evidence of this New Frontier all around us as science gains understanding of these tiny creatures and their direct links to our health.

 

In truth, we are more bacteria than we are human.  And they inhabit more than just our gut, but for our purposes now, we’ll stick with the gut.   And, […]
