NEW TOXICITY IN HURRICANES

 

Hurricanes have been a fact of life in Florida for as long as anyone can remember…and thousands of years before.  Yes, we know the scientists are saying “the earth is heating up”, causing not just more storms but also more severe storms.  But there is something relatively “new” on the scene that’s causing death and destruction of sea life of all kinds.  Scientists are now telling us there is evidence suggesting that this destructive, toxic substance is also associated with human illnesses including cancer, serious respiratory […]

Mighty Mushroom Series From (Acupuncture in Fort Myers) Lotus Blossom Clinic

REISHI “QUEEN” OF THE MUSHROOMS

“Asian history has more medical documentation on Reishi than any other mushroom.  In 2005, it took away my grandfather’s chest pains for 5 years…beginning on the day he started using it.

Do you know what really killed Robin Williams back in 2014?  Williams’ autopsy included an analysis of his brain, and what they discovered was tragic.   He had Lewey Body Dementia.   This disease is similar to Alzheimer’s but with other outward characteristics more like Parkinsons such as muscle twitches.  At night, his muscles were fully activated (and working) even during dream time.  Sleep disturbances are common with this disease.  Many brain processes were not working well in this man, which helps to understand why he had his own bedroom, separate […]

HERBS, OUR LONG-TIME MEDICINE
At least 80% of the people on our planet use herbal medicine as their primary medicine. This includes China, Central and South America, and most less-industrialized nations. Many of us here in America have no idea how integrated certain natural medicines are in other cultures.
