If you buy a true Himalayan salt lamp and use it regularly, you may just notice easier breathing, a calmer demeanor and better sleep in your near future.

What on Earth is a Himalayan salt lamp? Himalayan sea salt is believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea dating back to planet Earth's creation. I've talked before about the health benefits of Celtic sea salt and Himalayan salt , but what if I told you that there are actually lamps made from Himalayan salt? It's true! They're called salt lamps or salt rock lamps, and yes, they're actually made from pink Himalayan salt and are able to light your surroundings - but they're really not bought for their moderate lighting abilities.

The winter blues and lack of sunshine can take a toll, but seasonal affective disorder is even more serious. Fortunately, there are natural ways to stop SAD

The winter blues are well known and quite common - after all, these months come packed with a lot of holidays that can be emotionally draining. Combine that with minimal time in the sunshine, especially if you work in an office, and cold weather that seems to scream "stay home and get in a blanket," and it's no wonder that people tend to be a bit anti-social and grumpy from November until about April.

Apart from nagging pain and loss of mobility, arthritis can also cause various complications. And unfortunately most conventional treatments for arthritis don't address its underlying causes - plus they can cause dependency long term and pose many side effects. Natural treatments for arthritis include eating an anti-inflammatory arthritis diet, staying active and mobile, receiving chiropractic adjustments or massage therapy, and using healing essential oils to help control pain.

A heel spur often goes unnoticed or misdiagnosed. What is a heel spur, and how do you heal one? Here are seven natural solutions to heal a heel spur.

A heel spur is caused by the displacement of calcium on the bone that forms on the underside of the heel; it may be one small bony protrusion or a collection of tiny, irregularly shaped growths on the bone of the heel, which is called the calcaneum . Heel spurs are sometimes painful - described as a knife digging into the heel - and other times, a heel spur goes unnoticed and is only detected by an X-ray.  Because knowledge about the symptoms of heel spurs is somewhat limited, it's common that it's mistakenly assumed to be plantar fasciitis . A heel spur is simply the presence of an extra protrusion on the bony surface of the heel, while plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia - a thick connective tissue band that extends from the heel bone to the heads of the metatarsal bones, which are five long bones in the foot located between the heel and the toes. This connective tissue forms a tie that supports the arch on the bottom of your foot. Strain on the plantar fascia leads to irritation, swelling and then a weakness of the arch - this creates pain at the back of the heel. On the other hand, a heel spur is only observable by an X-ray and is painful when inflammation develops in the tissues surrounding it.

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.

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.

We've talked about the MTHFR mutant problem before (right here) but haven't really addressed the actual taking of methylfolate. We mutants are out there, walking among you unable to convert regular old folic acid into methylfolate.

I will stand with pride among you my brothers and sisters because yes, I too am a mutant. Deep shuddering sigh. As it turns out, using gene markers alone to plan a healthy nutritional protocol is not as straightforward as it would seem. The reason being that every system in the human body has a glorious level of redundancy - we are literally designed to fail in eight hundred ways and still function normally. Simply having the MTHFR mutation doesn't actually mean that high-dose methylfolate like Deplin® which is prescribed in either 7.5 mg or 15 mg doses is a good idea.

"Most epileptics are magnesium deficient. I wish I had found this out 40 years ago. Now I can even drive a car and ride a bike. It is so wonderful not to have seizures anymore plus not have to depend on drugs all the time and of course be free of drugs.

Sarah and her fiancé Richard wanted to have children as soon as they were married. Sarah had just been diagnosed with epilepsy, however, and was offered Phenobarbital as therapy. She and Richard read up on the drug, and now knew, as did their doctor, that pregnancy while taking a barbiturate was not ideal. "So we want to look into other options," Sarah said to me in the office. "Could vitamins replace the drug?"
