Yoga is not only good for strength and flexibility, but Lowenna Waters says that it also benefits sleep deprivation.
It's a well known fact that sleep disorders such as insomnia are endemic in our stress-filled, caffeine-driven contemporary lifestyles. In a recent study, it was shown that Britons are the world's most 'sleep deprived' people, with 37 per cent of the population reporting that they regularly don't get enough shut eye.
The health implications of sleep deprivation are equally shocking. It's been shown that when the brain is starved of sleep, its synapses begin to be 'eaten' by other cells in the brain. What's more, a lack of sleep can trigger the release of a chemical in the brain that leads to Alzheimers disease, and even that it's physically 'as bad as smoking'. Read more

Plague, which killed 30–60% of Europe's total population during Middle Ages, is spreading again, but three natural aids can reduce your chances of contracting it.
We’re picking up where we left off: an outbreak of Bubonic plague is occurring in Madagascar and the island of Seychelles off the coast of East Africa. The plague turns into pneumonic plague as it migrates into the lungs and causes pneumonia and a host of other respiratory problems. The causative organism of plague is the bacteria Yersinia pestis, and it is transmitted primarily by vectors (in this case fleas) from infected rodents to human beings. That is the normal route of transmission for the bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death during the Middle Ages, where 1/3 of the population of Europe died. Read more

Bill Sardi reveals how a genetic mutation cut short the human lifespan, and how we can make up for this genetic flaw with vitamin C supplementation.
Over a decade ago I wrote an article at LewRockwell.com entitled Can Humans Live Longer? The Missing Anti-Aging Hormone.
I explained the biological predicament of humans, that a gene mutation occurring long ago in human history shortened the human lifespan. Gulonolactone oxidase is among four liver enzymes most animals utilize to internally convert sugar to ascorbate (vitamin C). A mutation in the GULO gene for this enzyme also occurs in fruit bats, guinea pigs and primate monkeys and has forced these species along with humans to totally rely upon dietary sources of vitamin C to maintain health.
In the 1970s biochemist Irwin Stone explained that animals that make their own vitamin C live 8-10 times beyond their age of physical maturation. Mammals without this ability have a difficult time reaching 3-4 times. Today humans reach physical maturity around age 18 and live 70-90 years. If what is known from animals can be applied to humans, restoration of internal synthesis of vitamin C could theoretically produce humans that live hundreds of healthy years. Read more

These powerful examples of foods fighting disease prove once again that food is your best medicine.
When you’re diagnosed with a chronic condition, treatment is usually medical — drugs or surgery, for instance. You’ll probably be advised to improve your diet, but often with little, or no, advice on how to do it.
But, increasingly, evidence suggests that diet should be more than just a part of the treatment package, it should be seen as integral — sometimes working as well as, if not better than, medication.
For instance, a landmark seven-year study last year suggested a Mediterranean-style diet may be better at treating heart disease than statins. Read more

If you are already a fan of Dave Asprey, then you may know of his interest — or obsession, as some might call it — with mitochondria.

The average human cell contains between 1 and 2,000 mitochondria. These little bacteria are important to Dave Asprey because of the way they help produce energy in the body, and because you can literally train them to work to your advantage. Read more

Dr. Joseph Mercola reveals how to eat the high-fat, low-carb way for optimal health.
There’s emerging scientific evidence that a high-fat, low-net carb and moderate protein diet is an ideal diet for most people. However, compliance tends to be low for a number of reasons.
Discussing this is Randy Evans, who has a master’s degree in nutrition and works with Dr. Jeanne Drisko at the University of Kansas Integrative Medical Center. I recently interviewed Drisko on her clinical use of nutritional ketosis.
Evans grew up on a dairy farm in Southern Iowa at a time when agriculture was largely still organic. “I actually grew up eating mostly real whole foods,” he says, noting his interest in nutrition was an outgrowth of his upbringing. His interest in the ketogenic diet emerged when he began working with Drisko five years ago. Read more

Dr. Joseph Mercola explains why the medical establishment's war on salt is dangerous to your health.

Intestinal parasites are much more common than you might think. If you should be afflicted, Michael Ravensthorpe says these three natural remedies are effective.
Many people tend to assume that intestinal parasites are a Third World problem, but the truth is that they also affect millions of people in the Western world. In fact, intestinal parasites have risen to epidemic levels in the United States, with an estimated 50 percent of Americans believed to suffer from parasitic organisms in their digestive tract.

Eat your way to a healthy heart from this list of sixteen superfoods.
Diet has a large impact on our health. What we eat can either keep us energized or make us sick. Consuming saturated fats, sodium, and sugar-loaded foods as a fuel isn’t good for health in the long run, as our bodies do not get all the necessary nutrients and become prone to serious health conditions, like diabetes and heart disease. So eating natural foods as much as possible and avoiding processed and fast foods makes a lot of sense.
Speaking of cardiovascular health specifically, eating particular heart-friendly foods can go a long way in keeping the heart working properly. The heart is the body’s powerhouse as it ensures that a healthy blood supply reaches all the organs and tissues to keep them nourished. (Miracle molecule helps boost circulation.) Read more

This sort of Big Pharma propaganda comes out from time to time. Bill Sardi explains why this newest attempt to malign dietary supplements is just more fake news.
If you think President Donald Trump is getting unfairly slammed by fake news stories distributed by major news media consider the predicament of vitamin shop owners today who have been branded as “killers” in a news report that is being widely circulated today.
The evidence is not new. But the researchers said: “our study has given a comprehensive description of the response capacity (of the human body) for the first time.” This reporter published a descriptive article in 2014 on the same subject at KnowledgeofHealth.com.
The news story emanating from the report published in Redox Biology was quite different than the actual research.
The news report said: “Antioxidant don’t work as billed,” referring to oral antioxidant supplements. Read more

It may bring some comfort to those who go to bed, only to wake up in the middle of the night frustratedly unable to get back to sleep.

Cold showers may be considered more of a "manly" thing, but women shouldn't miss out on their benefits.
As a kid, I was a big James Bond fan. Saw all the movies and read all the books. One thing I noticed about the book version of James Bond was that every time he took a shower, he would start off with the water nice and hot, and then turn it down to cold for the last few minutes. Perhaps this little detail of Bond’s personal bathing regimen was a subtle way for Ian Fleming to illustrate Bond’s Scottish ancestry, as this type of shower is commonly known as a “Scottish Shower.” Who knows.
