One thing I find pleasing in today’s world is that more and more people are learning about and taking notice of the importance of the gut biome. This is the central plaza if you like where all of the action is in relation to providing good nutrition to our body. I liken it to a warehouse full of farm produce. If it is clean organic produce then the food will be making a positive impact on people it is distributed to. If it is produce filled with chemicals then it will have an adverse effect on the people it is distributed to. Our gut biome is no different and the more it is looked after the healthier we will be.   Hopefully you have heard about probiotics and prebiotics and this article will give you a clear explanation of both and their importance. Probiotics are

Posted on: Monday, June 10th 2013 at 9:00 am Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2017 Turmeric has been used in India for over 5,000 years, which is likely why still today both rural and urban populations have some of the lowest prevalence rates of Alzheimer's disease (AD) in the world. A recent study on patients with AD found that less than a gram of turmeric daily, taken for three months, resulted in 'remarkable improvements.' Alzheimer's Disease: A Disturbingly Common Modern Rite of Passage A diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD), sadly, has become a rite of passage in so-called developed countries.  AD is considered the most common form of dementia, which is defined as a serious loss of cognitive function in previously unimpaired persons, beyond what is expected from normal aging. A 2006 study estimated that 26 million people

Despite the general lack of interest by conventional medical practitioners in turmeric's role in preventing heart disease, there is a robust body of published research on its remarkable cardioprotective properties, with three dozen study abstracts on the topic available to view on our database alone: turmeric's cardioprective properties. A few years ago, we reported on a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology that found turmeric extract reduces post-bypass heart attack risk by 56%. Now, we would like to bring attention to a remarkable study published in the journal Nutrition

Human research on the health benefits of turmeric is sparse, mainly due to the lack of capital available to fund expensive clinical trials.[i] Despite many decades of investigation as a lead drug compound, and the availability of thousands of preclinical studies indicating turmeric's therapeutic value, few yet realize that this common kitchen spice may provide a suitable drug alternative for common health conditions. The latest human study to clinically confirm turmeric's medicinal value was published in the

Posted on: Wednesday, October 3rd 2012 at 5:00 am Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2019 Groundbreaking research published in the Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand found that curcumin, the primary polyphenol in turmeric, is capable of repairing and even regenerating the liver tissues of diabetic rats. The research was performed at Srinakharinwirot University in Bangkok, Thailand. The administration of curcumin to diabetic rats, whose livers showed the characteristic pathology and destruction of liver tissues and microvasculature, resulted in significant reversal of the condition. They noted: "Fascinatingly, liver microvasculature in curcumin treated group developed into regenerate and repair into healthy and normal characteristics." They concluded: "These results optimistically demonstrated the potential use of curcumin as a novel therapeutic agent in liver pathology of diabetic rats. Curcumin is actually one of the world's most thoroughly studied and well-characterized natural compounds, with

Posted on: Friday, October 19th 2012 at 5:00 am Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2012 A remarkable study performed at Chiang Mai University, Thailand and published in the American Journal of Cardiology last July, found that the administration of curcuminoids, natural phenols within the spice turmeric, reduced the frequency of myocardial infarction (heart attack) after coronary artery bypass in a group of 121 patients randomly selected to receive a placebo or 4 grams a day beginning 3 days before the scheduled surgery and continued until 5 days after surgery.[i] According to the study, "it is well established that myocardial infarction (MI) associated with coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) predicts a poor outcome. Nevertheless, cardioprotective therapies to limit myocardial injury after CABG are lacking." The researchers hypothesized that since preclinical research shows curcuminoids decrease proinflammatory cytokines during cardiopulmonary bypass

Posted on: Tuesday, June 25th 2013 at 7:00 pm Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2019 Increasingly science agrees with the poetry of direct human experience:  we are more than the atoms and molecules that make up our bodies, but beings of light as well. Biophotons are emitted by the human body, can be released through mental intention, and may modulate fundamental processes within cell-to-cell communication and DNA. Nothing is more amazing than the highly improbable fact that we exist. We often ignore this fact, oblivious to the reality that instead of something there could be nothing at all, i.e. why is there a universe (poignantly aware of itself through us) and not some void completely unconscious of itself? Consider that from light, air, water, basic minerals within the crust of the earth, and the at least 3 billion

Posted on: Sunday, April 21st 2019 at 10:30 am Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2019 Two highly concerning clinical studies in four years reveal that Tylenol not only kills pain but human empathy as well, adding soul-deadening properties to its well known list of serious side effects.  When will we learn? Synthetic, patented chemicals have profound unintended, adverse health effects which take decades to be recognize, long after exposed populations have suffered profoundly. The risks of these pharmaceuticals are sometimes several orders of magnitude higher than their natural alternatives. Over-the-counter painkillers have become classical examples of this, with so-called "low-dose" aspirin no longer considered safe enough to use for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease and stroke, ibuprofen causing tens of thousands of deaths each year due to its recently discovered cardiotoxicity, and Tylenol’s adverse effects on

Posted on: Monday, April 15th 2019 at 5:45 pm Written By: Deanna Minich, PhD This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2019 There is an old adage that claims we should 'eat the rainbow' to gain optimal health. It turns out that while we should definitely eat the colors of the rainbow, just being exposed to its light can help as well.  Every day, we are surrounded by the full spectrum of colors: the bright red of the stop sign on our way to work; the glowing orange-yellow sunlight shining through our window; the sea of swaying green grass in the local park; the dark indigo skin of succulent blueberries and blackberries. While we might stop and take a moment to appreciate the beauty of these colors, we often don’t think about the powerful effects that seeing and eating different colors have on our physical

Posted on: Monday, July 2nd 2012 at 11:45 am Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2015 There is a medicinal spice so timelessly interwoven with the origins of human culture and metabolism, so thoroughly supported by modern scientific inquiry, as to be unparalleled in its proven value to human health and well-being. Indeed, turmeric turns the entire drug-based medical model on its head.  Instead of causing more side effects than therapeutic ones – which you can read any drug insert to see is a universally true phenomenon and which ensures the infinite expansion of the pharmaceutical market and all the associated medical services – it has several hundred potential side benefits. While no food or herb is right for everyone, and everything has the potential for unintended, adverse side effects, turmeric is truly unique in its exceptionally high margin of
