Posted on: Tuesday, April 23rd 2019 at 5:15 am Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2019 You hear a lot about 'natural healing' these days, but did you know that a sizable body of scientific literature actually supports the idea that natural medicine is safer and more effective than conventional, drug-based medicine?  One of the greatest if not the greatest triumph of biomedical science today is its role in validating ancient healing modalities that long before the advent of science, and even recorded history itself, were passed down "orally" from generation to generation in the vast body of folkloric medical knowledge that still forms the basis for the majority of the world's primary health care system. These so-called "natural" or "alternative" modalities, which our species owes its present day survivorship to after eons of dependency on them, are increasingly

I’ve noticed that out of most fruits we all try to give our little ones, berries seem to have the highest success rate in uptake from them. This is a good thing, since the nutritional benefits of eating berries are numerous. These fruits have amazing flavours and colours and I wonder sometimes what I would do without them. Eat them fresh, put them in smoothies, add them to muffins, salads, chia pods, just to name a few things we can do with them. The brilliant thing about berries is that they provide a lot of nutrients and also taste good too, so we are truly blessed! So what is it that makes berries so nutritionally beneficial for us all? Here are 9 reasons you should be consuming berries on a regular basis. Keep in mind that you need to source organic berries, because unfortunately

Beetroot is a “superfood vegie” that contains some very potent nutrients that are beneficial in so many ways to our body. From very early times (Middle Ages), Beetroot was used for many conditions and was especially prominent for treating illnesses relating to digestion and the blood. Most people will eat the cooked beetroot in the tin, however, the most nutrient rich way to consume them is from the raw presses juice, followed by eating raw beetroot (leaves as well as the beetroot itself). The reason that the juice is best is because the nutrient compounds are 10 times more highly concentrated, delivering antioxidants, natural occurring nitrates, betaine and iron. Beetroot resembles the colour of our blood and so it is no surprise that they are incredibly beneficial to a healthy bloodstream and according to the American Heart Association, “drinking a cup of beetroot

Ancient healers used ashwagandha as a rejuvenative tonic that had the ability to give back strength to an emaciated body. It is reputed to give strength and vigour and to increase stamina. Being an adaptogen, it is able to help the body to increase nonspecific resistance to disease. It has traditionally been used for arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, cancer, candida, fever, inflammations, nausea, rheumatism, diabetes, leukoderma, cancer, to improve cognitive function and stress. Ashwagandha has a reputation as a sedative, a hypotensive, an antispasmodic, is antitumour,

It is dumbfounding to learn that by pulling a baby's legs up with one hand it can be causing nerve interference leading to colic in infants.  I'll never forget the moment, sitting there in a post-graduate seminar in Chicago, when I realized that as a chiropractor I had been really, really messing something up.  I wasn't a newbie by any means- I'd been in family practices for 7 years by this point, served my profession at the state and national level, and won a major award for my alternative health news podcast.  But here I was at the Doubletree being shown the most basic concept about changing an infant's diaper, and

Few, if any, plants have been revered as thoroughly -- by the religious and scientific community alike -- as a healer of the human body, mind and soul, as beautiful turmeric. It could be written off as an overly imaginative cultural oddity that ancient Indians understood turmeric to be the physical essence of the Divine Mother -- a botanical embodiment of compassion and healing. After all, nothing in the known biochemistry of this common spice plant lends itself to so gratuitous a characterization, does it? It turns out that even modern science now confirm that this 'curry' spice has therapeutic properties relevant to well over 600 different health conditions, and may therefore bestow on those who

Posted on: Wednesday, November 7th 2012 at 5:00 am Written By: Dr Deepak Acharya This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2012 Winter Cherry (Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal) is the member of family Solanaceae, locally known as Ashwagandha or Asgandh in India. This plant is erect, much-branched undershrubs, few-flowered with orange-red berries. The plant commonly grows in moist, shady places along the roads, often abundant near habitations. Ashwagandha is cultivated commercially for its fruits and roots in many parts of India.  The therapeutic values of the roots of this plant have been mentioned in age-old texts and also in Ayurveda. Tribesmen in Patalkot (Madhya Pradesh) and Dangs (Gujarat) largely practice Ashwagandha and its different parts in preparation of traditional herbal formulations (Acharya and Shrivastava, 2008, 2011). In India, the bruised leaves and ground roots of Ashwagandha are applied on painful swellings, carbuncles and ulcers

Inflammation is our immune system’s way of responding to injury and infections. The body notifies the immune system that some repairs need to be done on damaged tissue, this then initiates the healing process. The act of the part of the body that is damaged to become inflamed, is the body’s way of protecting that area from foreigners such as viruses and bacteria. Without inflammation, wounds would become infected and this would be deadly. Having said that, inflammation should be short lived, only being needed long enough to ensure the healing occurs and the body is returned to homeostasis (total balance). Should the inflammatory process go on for too long or occurs where it is not needed, it will become a problem and this is when the condition becomes chronic. There are 2 types of inflammation, acute and chronic. Acute Inflammation This type of inflammation will occur

As consumers, we have been bombarded constantly over the past 40-50 years by the so called authorities about fats: saturated fats, unsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, hydrogenated fats, good fats, bad fats, you name it fats and unfortunately, the information released to the masses in western society has been misleading (based on old, out of date data and plain inaccurate and misleading studies), to the detriment of the health of people in our communities. One thing that is becoming increasingly clear is that the old school mantra of bashing coconut oil as being bad for you, is fast becoming flawed. What needs to be noted is that early studies done on coconut oil many years ago that returned less than favourable results used partially hydrogenated coconut oil NOT unrefined virgin coconut oil. Hydrogenated oil is not the same as unrefined oil and it
