If you don't keep witch hazel in your medicine cabinet, Alanna Ketler gives eight reasons that you should
Witch Hazel is an ancient Native American remedy for a wide variety of ailments and people are starting to see why. Generally, in stores, we see witch hazel available in a clear liquid form in a bottle, but prior to that, it starts off as a shrub with yellow flowers.

There are two ways of getting the extract from the witch hazel bark, one as a distillation, this is commonly found in stores and generally has alcohol added to act as a preservative, or as a decoction. Many herbalists agree that the decoction method is superior because it makes a more concentrated version which means higher levels of tannins, which is the component that gives witch hazel its superior astringent properties. The distilled version is more shelf-stable, but just be aware of the alcohol that’s added, as some are sensitive to this. Read more

When that happens, energy levels plummet, hormones become imbalanced, and physical and emotional states are affected. Here we’ll take a closer look at everything you need to know about iodine and its special relationship with the thyroid.

Former vegan Lierre Keith explains why she wrote her book The Vegetarian Myth..
CHAPTER 1: Why This Book?
This was not an easy book to write. For many of you, it won’t be an easy book to read. I know. I was a vegan for almost twenty years. I know the reasons that compelled me to embrace an extreme diet and they are honorable, ennobling even. Reasons like justice, compassion, a desperate and all-encompassing longing to set the world right. To save the planet—the last trees bearing witness to ages, the scraps of wilderness still nurturing fading species, silent in their fur and feathers. To protect the vulnerable, the voiceless. To feed the hungry. At the very least to refrain from participating in the horror of factory farming.
These political passions are born of a hunger so deep that it touches on the spiritual. Or they were for me, and they still are. I want my life to be a battle cry, a war zone, an arrow pointed and loosed into the heart of domination: patriarchy, imperialism, industrialization, every system of power and sadism. If the martial imagery alienates you, I can rephrase it. I want my life—my body—to be a place where the earth is cherished, not devoured; where the sadist is granted no quarter; where the violence stops. And I want eating—the first nurturance—to be an act that sustains instead of kills. Read more

I recently saw the feature length documentary, Eat the Sun, and was inspired to explore the practice of sungazing.
The practice of sungazing closely resembles its name. At sunrise and/or sunset, when the sun is closest to the earth, sungazers stand barefoot on the earth and look directly at the sun for 10 seconds. Every day, 10 seconds are added and some sungazers eventually reach a duration of 44 minutes. Read more

To make your feet stronger and avoid foot problem, try going barefoot more often, says Jessica Dolores.
Ever wondered why your feet are killing you, even if you don’t have a sprain, or any sign of injury? It could be because you’ve been wearing closed shoes the whole day, and your feet have no chance to “breathe.” A new study by Harvard University researchers Nicholas Holowka and Daniel E. Liebermann showed that flat foot, which hampers movement because of reduced stiffness in the longitudinal arch (LA), is rare among people who go barefoot regularly. Read more

Here are some hiccup cures that work, but no one wants to try. Breathing into a paper bag, swallowing sugar, and sipping vinegar are some of the weird ways to get rid of hiccups.
For most of us, hiccups are merely a temporary and occassionally embarrassing inconvenience that passes within minutes.
But in a small minority of cases, they can last for days — even months. Last year, prolonged hiccups were among the 22,000 ‘potentially trivial’ incidents seen in A&E, according to NHS statistics.
While this might initially sound like a waste of hospital time, such hiccupping may indicate a deeper medical problem — which is why the NHS recommends people seek medical advice if their hiccups last for more than 48 hours. Read more

The vaccine industry is worried sick, so to speak, about a natural remedy that makes their products unnecessary.
Here’s why vaccines are unnecessary: They are merely given purportedly to immunize against or shall it be said ‘prevent’ certain diseases, most of which are rarely fatal in first world countries. These are mostly transitory viral conditions. There are safer, less invasive answers.
Wild oregano oil (p73) is the key alternative. If it is from a truly wild source, then, it can be taken aggressively: as much as needed. Yet, for the typically immunized conditions only a modest amount is necessary, for instance, for chicken pox, measles, and mumps: like a few drops several times daily.
Wild oregano oil can also be rubbed topically on the feet, shins, and upper chest. It can even be used topically on newborns and infants. Babies and toddlers can take a tiny amount internally, like a drop or two twice daily. In this regard it is far safer than all standard drugs, like antibiotics, cough syrups, and even infant vitamins. – Dr Cass Ingram Researcher, Speaker & Author of 34 books Read more
