Raw Cacao vs Cocoa: What's The Difference?
February 14, 2016
Cacao and cocoa are kind of the same thing... They're also very different! We don't want to confuse you but we want you to discover the truth about their differences.
The studies that boast of chocolate's amazing health benefits are not referring to your average store-bought chocolate bar (damn misleading researchers). The chocolate that they're referring to is raw cacao. Raw cacao is made by cold-pressing unroasted cacao beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cacao and removes the fat (cacao butter).
A better approach to beating chronic fatigue
by Dr. Isaac Eliaz
February 9, 2016
While researchers and standard doctors try to understand how to treat chronic fatigue with drugs, the integrative medical community has made a ton of progress in helping patients regain their energy and quality of life naturally.
The unifying symptom of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is persistent and debilitating physical and often mental/emotional fatigue that results in at least a 50% reduction in activity. Other symptoms and signs can include but are not limited to muscle pain, muscle weakness, mild fever, recurrent sore throat, painful lymph nodes, headaches, joint pain, sleep disturbance, depression, digestive disorders such as IBS and neurological dysfunction. Typically these symptoms are ongoing and progress over months and even years, however, some individuals experience sudden onset of multiple symptoms as well.

January 21, 2016
Is The Immune Boosting Elixir Making You Sicker With It's Synthetic Vitamins? Emergen-C® is vitamin C-based fizzy powdered drink mix that suggests it provides people with energy boost, elevated immunity response, and the benefit of overall health.

How to Get Rid of Vertigo
by Dr. Axe
January 18, 2016
Have you ever experienced vertigo? If so, you probably have wondered how to get rid of vertigo so it won't become a chronic problem. Try these six secrets.
Our ability to stay balanced is maintained by several systems, including: the sensorimotor control system (which controls our senses, such as our sight and hearing), the proprioception system (responsible for touch) and the vestibular system (helps us move without falling over). The inner ears obviously help us see, but they're also an important part of the vestibular system, which allows us to identify where we are in space.
Patchwork of state regs on raw milk blankets the country
by Cookson Beecher
There's more than one way to skin a cat. That's especially true when looking at how states are tangling with the dilemma of how to regulate the sale of raw milk.
Raw milk is milk that hasn't been pasteurized with heat to kill pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria and campylobacter. The controversy comes because many raw-milk advocates tout it as a natural, clean product that offers a wide range of health benefits, among them preventing digestive upsets and asthma. Many also say it's a matter of food freedom - that consumers should be free to choose what they drink or eat.
Chemtrails - Which Air Purifiers Work Against Chemtrails?
January 13, 2016
Chemtrails affect my health dramatically, so almost immediately after we began experiencing daily chemtrail spraying, I began searching for an air filter that would remove them from the air.
The majority of air purifiers today use mesh filters that trap particles from the air, but this type of random mesh filter has a fundamental limitation. Larger particles are effectively trapped while smaller particles easily pass through. To measure the effectiveness of consumer air filters, a standard was developed called HEPA. In order to meet the HEPA specification, a filter must remove 99.97% of all particles that are greater than 0.3 microns in size.
Natural home remedies: Coughs
December 30, 2015
Coughing not only annoys you but also makes you persona non grata at the movies, the symphony, and any other place where people congregate. But if you have a "wet" cough, you don't want to suppress it...
Blend lemon juice with a little honey, then add a pinch of cayenne pepper and swallow. The honey coats your throat, soothing irritated tissues, while the lemon reduces inflammation and delivers a dose of infection-fighting vitamin C. The red pepper increases circulation to the area, which hastens the healing process.
Natural Health from A to Z - Columns

If you are GRUMPY, DEPRESSED and IRRITABLE, read this. Your mood is determined not only by what you think and feel, but by physiological things such as blood sugar, food sensitivities, liver function and vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
FOODS greatly influence the brain. Poor diets, particularly those with too much sugar, caffeine and junk food are a common cause of depression and irritability. The brain will produce stress hormones when we eat the wrong things. However, on a good, balanced diet, the brain will produce serotonin, which is a relaxer. So fix your diet!

Make sure the doctor you choose is the right doctor for treating and beating cancer in your life.
When you are diagnosed with cancer, one of the first things you should do is find the right doctor ... someone you can trust and is knowledgeable about how to heal the human body. But more than that, you should find a doctor who treats his patients as human beings, rather than revenue generators.
Can Quitting Gluten Be Bad for You?
by Sandi Busch
November 26, 2015
Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
Wheat is a major source of gluten. Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Now gluten-free products are easy to find and going gluten-free has become a diet option for anyone. But it's not always the best choice. If you're not careful about your food selections, a gluten-free diet may lack essential nutrients. Gluten proteins in wheat, rye and barley trigger an autoimmune response in people with celiac disease. Following a gluten-free diet relieves celiac-related symptoms. However, a medical professional should make such a diagnosis. Deciding to go gluten-free can be risky. You might not be as strict about avoiding sources and forms of gluten as you must be. If you have celiac disease, eating even a small amount of gluten damages your intestines, resulting in health problems throughout your body. Undiagnosed celiac disease also can increase your risk of osteoporosis and thyroid disease. If you experience bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, joint pain or a skin rash, consult your doctor.
