NATURAL ALTERNATIVES TO CORTISONE
by Dr. Zoltan P. Rona, Md, M.Sc.
January 19, 2017
The massive heart attack which took the life of former finance minister, Jim Flaherty, on April 10 has focused public attention on the potential dangers of prednisone.
Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid used widely for numerous acute and chronic inflammatory conditions like asthma, temporal arteritis, autoimmune diseases (ie. Bullous Pemphigoid, Crohn's disease) and numerous skin conditions (especially eczema and hives). Its basic effect is to suppress the immune system's natural inflammatory response.
Natural Health from A to Z - Columns
by Margaret Durst

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!
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 Labour vs Induced Labour - 6 Main Differences
by Sam McCulloch
October 8, 2015
These days, a very common decision many parents-to-be face is whether to induce labour or wait for labour to begin spontaneously.
Women and their partners should be aware that induction of labour for a low risk pregnancy introduces a number of risks to a potentially normal labour and birth. Many parents are not aware of the reasons why waiting for labour to start without any interference is preferable and beneficial, when there are no medical complications. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as having some medication and labour begins (and ends) just as it would normally - it's actually very different.
Natural Prescriptions For Parkinson's Disease
by Bruce Scali
December 17, 2017
After 200 years of investigation, researchers and clinicians have identified neither the cause nor the cure for Parkinson's disease, the condition first described by James Parkinson in 1817.
Neurodegenerative symptoms such as tremor and a shuffling gait, also known as paralysis agitants, have been observed and recorded by physicians since ancient times. Much has been learned since about the characteristics of Parkinson's disease, but much remains unknown. Not only do the cause and cure of Parkinson's continue to elude us, but doctors still cannot identify those in early stages of the disease. Consequently, a definitive program for prevention remains uncertain.
Natural Remedies for High Blood Pressure
November 9, 2015
Elevated blood pressure is when the pressure on the arteries and blood vessels becomes too high and the arterial wall becomes distorted causing extra stress on the heart.
Long term-high blood pressure increases the risk of stroke, heart attack and diabetes. Frequently, there are no symptoms as blood pressure increases but warning signs for very high blood pressure can include chest pains, confusion, headaches, ear noise or buzzing, irregular heartbeat, nosebleeds, tiredness, or vision changes.
Natural Remedies for Women With Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome
May 25, 2014
If you are diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse, have no fear as natural remedies can help you to endure the annoying symptoms of this benign disorder.
Women are far more likely than men to be diagnosed with this syndrome and oddly, there is even a specific body type related to this malady. The typical profile is a slender female with long arms, tapering fingers and a wide hand span. They also seem to be very limber and loose-jointed. Doctors pick up on this diagnosis when listening to the heart and hear a click murmur. Further studies with an echocardiogram will confirm the prolapse and offer pictures for review.
Natural Sunscreen Review: Over 80 Mineral Sunscreens Tested by One Family!
by Katie Kimball
June 25, 2017
Crazy but true - our family really has tested and reviewed over 80 mineral sunscreens, and we know the best natural sunscreens that really work! In this comprehensive sunscreen review, we share which ones stay on in the water or when you sweat...
Which brands make you look white like a ghost and which go on smoothly, what got us burned and what natural ingredients are REALLY the best (and the brands that are tricking you with their marketing). We've learned a lot about sun safety and sunscreen efficacy, and I continue to do research on things like Vitamin D. We started in 2010 with 28 of the 40 natural sunscreens that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rated as "safe" at the time. (They now rank hundreds that way; exciting to see more and more brands getting on board!)
Nature's 11 Most Powerful Antibiotics you Can Find In the Nearest Grocery Store
August 26, 2017
The use of antibiotics has reached its peak. The reason for that is the drug-resistant bacterium which thrive faster than the experts find out a way to destroy them.
Before the occurrence of the antibiotics in 1940, the herbs and foods helped in the fight against bacteria and infections, many of which still exist as a holistic healer. Our predecessors used natural solutions instead of antibiotics for treatment of illnesses.
Nearly 1 in 20 US adults over 50 have fake knees
by Lindsey Tanner
February 10, 2012
Nearly 1 in 20 Americans older than 50 have artificial knees, or more than 4 million people, according to the first national estimate showing how common these replacement joints have become in an aging population.
Doctors know the number of knee replacement operations has surged in the past decade, especially in baby boomers. But until now, there was no good fix on the total number of people living with them.
