If your dentist still uses mercury fillings, you may want to find a new one. Dr. David Brownstein says mercury is so toxic that it should be banned in dentistry.
(I am sorry that I have been lax at posting new articles here. What is my excuse? I have been finishing up a new book–book number 14– and I hope to go to print this week. Later this week, I will send you more information about this project.)

If you want a good night's sleep, it's time to throw out the rule book, according to David Beckham's sleep coach.
For the past 30 years, I’ve dedicated my life to sleep. I’ve been teaching sports stars from David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo to Victoria Pendleton and Laura Trott how to get the most out of their sleep.
What I’ve discovered is that much of the talk about sleep is nonsense. The secrets of waking up feeling rested don’t lie in spending as much as you can afford on a mattress or in trying to get eight hours a night.
In fact, if you really want a good night’s sleep — and who doesn’t? — it’s time to throw out the rule book and start again.

Many of you are probably familiar with castor oil as the go-to concoction that old-time healers recommend for a wide range of ailments — from constipation to colds and fever, and even as treatment against parasitical worms.1 Castor oil is claimed to be one of the best remedies there is.
I have previously written about the mysteries — and potential health uses — of castor oil, and despite having minimal research backing up its potential medicinal effects, I do believe that there are notable benefits from using this versatile oil.
It’s one of the most well-known natural remedies with a long enough history to at least warrant greater scientific exploration — nevertheless, a little careful at-home experimentation before using it wouldn’t hurt. Read more

Epsom salts is a cheap, old-fashioned remedy, but it still has plenty of uses today, according to Gaye Levy..
Over the years, I have learned that superstars of preparedness are those items that serve multiple purposes. In many cases, these are common, everyday items that we already have on hand. Not only that, many of these multi-taskers are budget friendly and available everywhere. Some good examples include vinegar, salt, honey, duct tape, coffee filters, and even microfiber cloths.

Although the claim that 30,000 people die from the flu each year in the U.S. is a lie, flu is still a miserable experience. Have these three natural remedies on hand in case you do come down with a case.
