Turmeric, a spice used in many Indian dishes, contains a high concentration of a substance called curcumin which possesses medical benefits rivaling many pharmaceuticals. Research suggests that turmeric has the potential to replace cholesterol and steroid medications, chemotherapy drugs, and antidepressants. There is even evidence it can be effective in reversing liver damage. Plant-based treatments are now in the process of revolutionizing modern medicine. In the near future, prescriptions for popular drugs such as Lipitor and Prozac could be replaced with prescriptions for Turmeric.

Key Takeaways:

  • Turmeric shows great health benefits that include fighting inflammation, diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers.
  • One current problem is that many over-the-counter turmeric supplements come from poorly-vetted Chinese suppliers and are contaminated with lead and other metals.
  • Turmeric holds promise as a complement to or replacement for a variety of antidepressants, anti inflammatory drugs, and other pharmaceuticals.

"Without a healthy fat/oil, curcumin may pass right through the body and not be absorbed into the small intestine and into the bloodstream, where it is most effective. Coconut oil, olive oil, and avocado are great to consume along with turmeric. Curcumin absorption is also boosted by piperine, the principle component found in black pepper."

Key Takeaways:

  • Saffron has been tested on its effectiveness on woman suffering from postpartum.
  • Studies show that saffron is effective and safer than other prescription drugs.
  • Other ways to help post partum is watching intake of fatty acids, Vitamin B12, and even therapy.

High blood pressure causes a number of negative aspects to the health, but it can be pretty difficult to reduce the numbers. There are medications the doctor can prescribe to treat high blood pressure, as well as special diets to follow to aid in the process. One of the additions that you should make to the menu is hibiscus tea. This special tea tastes great and has been proven to significantly improve the health, including by lowering the blood pressure.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Indian Journal of Pharmacology recently published the results of a study done in Nigeria, centering on the hibiscus.
  • The study showed that drinking hibiscus tea can naturally reduce Ace and lisinopril levels.
  • These reductions caused drinkers of hibiscus tea to experience significant drops in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

"While Western medicine advocates for the prescription of various drugs that are linked to harmful side effects, there are effective and natural ways that can help lower blood pressure, such as hibiscus tea."

Pain is of course a fact of life, as is the reasonable pursuit to end, or at least mitigate it. But, it's that ending of pain that can prove problematic. Last year Consumer Reports revealed that as many as 4 million plus U.S. citizens bought pharmaceutical interventions of some type in an attempt to deal with a pain. Unfortunately, most pharmaceutical interventions are not without side effects, some of them very serious. Moreover, although these types of interventions can help sufferers cope with symptoms, they can also mask other important symptoms. In general, pharmaceutical pain relievers block receptors that would allow the brain to acknowledge pain. They can also cause a mild euphoria. The most potent type of pharmaceutical pain killers, opioids are also highly addictive. Millions of people abuse prescription drugs and hundreds of thousands die due to overdose every year. There are other options. Alternative forms of holistic treatment have been around for thousands of years, long before many of today's modern interventions. Today, science is discovering that many of them have a right to be considered potent medicine in their own right. Two holistic alternatives to pharmaceutical pain relievers are turmeric and cayenne. Curmerin, the inflammation-fighting component of turmeric, has been proven to fight inflammation-caused pain as well as Ibuprofen. In the same way, the capsaicinoids, which are inherent in cayenne, also work to alleviate inflammation, thereby alleviating pain. Another holistic remedy, Epsom salts, also alleviates pain when users soak in it.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although drugs can alleviate symptoms, they also have a tendency to mask other vital symptoms.
  • During 2017, it's estimated by Consumer Reports that drug-seeking U.S. citizens filled a whopping 4.5 million prescriptions.
  • Curcumin, a component of the spice turmeric, inhibits pain due to inflammation in a way that makes it on par with the relief users would normally gain from Ibuprofen.

"Big Pharma seems to be working very hard at creating customers, rather than cures. When you take a drug, it often leads to more problems, and ultimately, more drugs."

How does turmeric compare to OTC drugs? Research shows it’s superior in every way

Turmeric has earned its reputation as a fantastic natural medicine over the course of thousands of years. Scientists from the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) recently added yet another study confirming the healing properties of curcumin, turmeric’s active ingredient, which they found to have unique anti-cancer properties. Other studies show that turmeric shows great promise in the treatment of depression, diabetes and other serious systemic conditions. Best of all, turmeric has no noticeable side effects!

Key Takeaways:

  • Recent University of California at San Diego research suggests turmeric may help suppress the growth of certain cancer variants.
  • A study by Phytotherapy Research indicates that turmeric has great potential for treating depression, completely free of side effects.
  • The anti-inflammatory power of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, can be very helpful for avoiding oxidative stress.

"Even in a world awash with prescription medications and over-the-counter pills, Big Pharma’s worst cocktails cannot even begin to touch upon the healing power of turmeric."

Supplemental nutrition found to treat brain injury better than prescriptions, and may even provide some protection against injury

Researchers from Texas Christian Univeristy recently led a research review into whether nutritional supplements can aid in recovery from Sports Related Concussions (SRC). SRCs, sometimes referred to as mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI), are caused by biomechanical forces resulting from a direct blow to the head, face or neck. While mTBIs are harder to diagnose than other TBIs, they can become progressively more serious through repeated trauma and the brain’s inflammatory response. The research review decided that Curcumin, Creatine and Omega-3 supplements show potential for promoting recovery from SRCs, but noted that more research is needed.

Key Takeaways:

  • According to findings from Texas Christian University, nutritional supplements can be used effectively to treat brain injuries such as concussions from sports.
  • Specific nutrients can affect a broader spectrum of neurological pathways than mainstream drugs, offering more treatment options for mTBIs.
  • Creatine, omega-3 fatty acids, and curcumin all positively impact the neurometabolic sequelae involved in concussive impacts.

"Mild traumatic brain injuries, however, are not as easily detected as that of a severe TBI. The authors noted that while sports-related concussive and sub-concussive impacts start out as mild, the brain’s inflammatory response to an injury may aggravate it, especially in repeated and prolonged exposures."

Subject: Cannabinoid-Pharmaceutical Interactions: What You Need to Know





With the regulatory environment shifting seemingly by the day across much of the U.S., many consumers are getting their first opportunities to consider the benefits of cannabinoids as a means of treating what ails them. However, like any medicines, there are interactions with other pharmaceuticals that need to be taken into consideration. Specifically, they can inhibit the reception and mechanisms of action of many common prescription drugs, including common opiate painkillers. In order to check side effects, it's best to keep a close eye on the literature and carefully research any possible interactions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cytochrome P450 is the key to metabolizing both these drugs and what interacts in our body with it.
  • Cannabinoids may be the key to opiod addiction due to their poor ability for long term dependence and physical addiction
  • You will need to monitor what you take since other drugs can interact poorly with cannabinoids.

"Cannabis has demonstrated efficacy in treating pain, and some phytocannabinoids have been suggested for various metabolic conditions."

The future of cannabis in the workplace

Subject: The future of cannabis in the workplace





Cannabis, though being legalized in many locales, still isn't quite legalized to be imbibed or smoked in the workplace. Unlike other prescription drugs, like say pain killers or antibiotics, you are not free to use these in the same way at the workplace as you would at home. Due to their schedule 1 designation by the DEA, they are still illegal and a company can be held liable if found with amounts in their confines. This may be changing over time, but for the time being, do not expect relaxed regulation at work for your legally prescribed drugs.

Key Takeaways:

  • Once cannabis is legalized, it will be treated as alcohol is in the workplace.
  • There are typically two types of strains and effects cannabis, sativa and indica.
  • Urinalysis is the most common way to test whether someone is impaired with cannabis.

"Cannabis isn't a new substance, but now that it's allowed to be consumed, it's a different awareness."

It's easy for me to believe that the elderly would benefit from cannabis. Considering the plant is useful for pain management and arthritis pain. While i was in favor of the first point, I wasn't sure of what to think of point two. The usual stereotype for a cannabis user is dad bod at best.

I do wish there was more studies done on the benefits of cannabis over prescription pain relief for elderly. With America going through an opioid epidemic, you can see instant and prolonged benefit from this issue. Younger patients could be introduced to cannabis from a medical standpoint immediately, and not need opioids at age 11 for an appendix surgery.

Endocannabinoids are apparently good for bone strength. Which is great for the elderly.

Again, chronic pain is relieved by cannabis. Dementia can also be treated with cannabis. And can be prevented by smoking as an adult.

Enjoying life doesn't mean smoking cannabis, but smoking cannabis makes life enjoyable.

Key Takeaways:

  • pot use is gradually on the rise for older adults. It is not just a kdi thing anymore
  • there are numerous positive (though unsubstantiated)benefits to using marijuana
  • not meant to be a substitute for medical treatment. One should always consult with their physician.

Billy, an 11 year old living in Northern Ireland, will be the first person to receive a medical marijuana prescription in the United Kingdom. Billy suffers from severe epilepsy, which prevented more traditional medical treatments. His doctor agreed to prescribe it in the wake of overwhelming evidence of the success of Cannabidiol in treating his condition. Where previously Billy would experience up to 100 seizures a days - Billy has not experienced a seizure since starting his treatment 300 days ago in the United States. His mother also notes that it has helped with Billy's Autism - making better eye contact when he plays and communicates. To celebrate this largely important decision, the family is hosting an event, that already has 600 RSVP's, in support of Billy.

Key Takeaways:

  • Medical marijuana is increasingly being seen as a potential natural remedy to help combat different types of seizures.
  • CBD oil is helpful in that it's not psychoactive, meaning that it's ideal for treating seizures (in contrast to THC).
  • Billy is the first patient to have received a medical marijuana prescription specifically for seizures, and his condition has improved dramatically as a result.

"Before taking the CBD oil, Billy suffered from up to 100 seizures a day, which was severely damaging to his health, because one seizure could kill him."

In recent years chiropractic services have been gaining a more positive outlook from doctors practicing traditional medicine. Doctors these days are more likely to refer a patient to a chiropractor for many reasons, such as treatment of migraine headaches, pain in the joints to problems with vision. Chiropractors are being more and more recognized as an alternative treatment to prescription drugs. Many people don't realize that chiropractors spend years in training making them a viable alternative for unwanted symptoms. Chiropractors are schooled in a variety of stress relieving treatments, such as herbal and nutritional remedies. Having regular adjustments by a chiropractor is also a good way to do preventative maintenance for your health.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chiropractors are not simply concerned with neck and back alignment, their work provides the foundation for overall health
  • Chiropractors are highly trained medical professionals whose level of study rivals that of MD's
  • Chiropractors can take a traditional or mixed approach with their methods but either way they have a whole suite of options to get you feeling better

Subject: Top 7 Foods That Boost Serotonin





Serotonin helps regulate body temperature, mood, sleeping patterns and aids in digestion, among other benefits. It's common for those that have low levels of serotonin to experience depression and many antidepressant medications raise serotonin levels to combat depression. If you want to raise your serotonin levels naturally(or tryptophan a serotonin precursor), without the side effects involved with prescription medications, you may want to try adding these foods to your diet. They include frits, vegetable, eggs, meats and even chocolate

Key Takeaways:

  • Serotonin, also known as 5-HT, is a neurotransmitter released by the pineal gland of the brain.
  • Foods that boost serotonin include: kiwi, dark chocolate, seeds, nuts and vitamin D-rich foods
  • Some foods contain tryptophan, which is a precursor to serotonin, but these are only effective when consumed with a high-carb, low-protein diet

"Serotonin plays an important role in controlling our circadian rhythms - our body’s internal clock."

This can ruin families and lives. Some believe marijuana can help because that can be used for pain instead. It does help some with pain already. Medicinal marijuana is already allowed in some places and people are swearing by it for pain and other issues. Others say marijuana can be addictive as well, though, so that would create its own problems.

Key Takeaways:

  • Reducing medicinal marijuana programs would lead to increase in opioid issues
  • Studies have shown marijuana use isn't a gateway drug like opioids
  • Republican administration refuses to accept data that marijuana can lower pain

"The reality is that the literature right now suggests that if anyone is using an opioid — whether it be a prescription painkiller or something like heroin — a prescription painkiller is more likely [than marijuana] to lead to drug abuse, she says, because it’s more addictive and obviously can be more lethal."

Subject: Can diet pills help you lose weight?





There is a small minority of people that find diet pills helpful along with a diet and exercise program. When it comes to diet pill options, some of the limited Prescription options include two drugs that are FDA approved for longer term use for weight loss in general. Some of the over counter remedies include Ephedrine, Chitosan, as well as a few others. However when it comes down due it while drugs offer an answer to part of the weight loss problem, exercise is also a crucial part of weight loss.

Key Takeaways:

  • Everyone knows that a combination of diet and exercise is the best way to lose weight. But many of us have tried this, over and over again, without lasting success.
  • The Food and Drug Administration treats obesity drugs differently than it does other drugs.
  • People report they feel full and more energetic. Because it can increase blood pressure, it must not be used in people with hypertension, and blood pressure must be regularly monitored while using the medication.

Subject: Natural Allopathic medicine: the power to heal and cure cancer





With health care costs and the price of Prescription drug costs on the rise many people are looking for alternative treatments, including natural remedies. While big pharmaceutical companies try to discount the benefits of natural remedies, proponents provide interesting information about the benefits. Check out the article for some recent news regarding natural approaches to medicine

Key Takeaways:

  • Good medicine should strive vigorously to do no harm to patients, while providing the knowledge and pathways for individuals to heal themselves.
  • Healthcare should empower patients with strong mindset, not fear of disease. The system should work to prevent health problems instead of trying to capitalize on managing and creating new problems.
  • Today’s allopathic system oftentimes seems like a cult, heavily influenced by pharmaceutical companies. Allegiant to synthetic drugs and standard procedures, MD’s often shun anything that’s natural.

Subject: Can Cannabis Help with Inflammation for Athletes?





With opioid dependence and overdose deaths reaching epidemic levels, athletes suffering from injuries need alternatives to widely prescribed painkillers. Research suggests that components of the cannabis plant, including THC, CBD, and terpenes can play a role in reducing pain and inflammation. Although it is not as powerful a painkiller as opioids, cannabis could be used to help wean athletes off of opioid medication, as well as manage long-term chronic pain.

Key Takeaways:

  • Athletes today are bigger, stronger, and faster than they were just a decade or so ago.
  • Men and women are becoming more competitive thanks in part to technological advancements designed to improve workouts and recovery time.
  • With these innovations, however, come drawbacks.

"One possible alternative to Prescription painkillers may come from certain components of the cannabis plant. Recent studies have found that cannabis could possibly reduce inflammation, acting almost like Tylenol."

Hear a lot about marijuana in the news? Not sure of its purpose? Well a new study aims to anwser that. A new study is about to begin that would compare weeds affect as a painkiller, in the place of something stronger like opiods. More will be known as study moves ahead.

Key Takeaways:

  • Physicians have commented for more than a century on the potential for cannabis to substitute for opioid drugs, and several recent studies seem to bolster this hypothesis.
  • Researchers examining public-health records have found evidence that painkiller Prescriptions, opioid abuse, and overdose deaths has declined in medical marijuana states.
  • Because a plant that exists and reproduces in nature can’t be patented, cannabis offers few opportunities for patents (and thus profits), which makes it look like a loser to most companies.

"The current status of medical marijuana research is rife with irony."

Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes in the United States. Some studies have shown that patients with this condition are sometimes able to control their disease effectively with supplements instead of Prescription medication. While there are different degrees of any disease, it is possible that a dietary change could help control the condition. Some of the supplements that may help include chromium, biotin, vitamin D, D-chiro-inositol, and berberine. As always, people should consult their doctor before changing any therapy.

Key Takeaways:

  • This essential trace mineral makes insulin more active by helping it bind to the insulin receptor, says Stags. It is naturally occurring in meat, fish, fruits and vegetables, spices, whole wheat bread and rye breads.
  • This chemical variant of B vitamin, helps insulin work better because it improves the glucose pathway after the insulin has bound its receptor on a cell.
  • This natural alkaloid originated in China and India where it was used in Ayurveda medicine.

"Experts say that in many cases, supplements can help manage Type 2 diabetes, the insulin-resistant form of the disease which is the most common in the United Sates."

Subject: For Cholesterol, Going Lower Clears Clogs





Amgen Inc. is the first pharmaceutical company to develop a drug that can help undo plaque buildup in arteries. When given along with cholesterol-lowering statins, Repatha has been shown to reduce the LDL in patients as low at 15. These levels are unheard of in patients with historically high cholesterol. The only issue is the cost. While statins are relatively cheap, Repatha costs roughly $14,000 a year and is not covered by Prescription insurance. Hopefully, once the drug has gone through more trials, insurers will see its potential and cover some of the costs.

Key Takeaways:

  • For the first time, a new drug given along with a cholesterol-lowering statin medicine has proved able to shrink plaque that is clogging arteries, potentially giving a way to undo some of the damage of heart disease.
  • Too much cholesterol, along with other substances, can build up and form plaque in arteries.
  • Repatha costs $14,000 a year and insurers often won't pay.

"The drug, Amgen Inc.'s Repatha, also drove LDL, or bad cholesterol, down to levels rarely if ever seen in people before. Heart patients are told to aim for below 70, but some study participants got as low as 15."

Subject: Parents: How smart are you about antibiotics?





Antibiotic resistance has been called one of the world’s most pressing public health problems. Every time a person takes antibiotics, sensitive bacteria are killed, but resistant ones may be left to grow and multiply. Repeated and improper uses of antibiotics are the primary causes of the increase in drug-resistant bacteria.

Key Takeaways:

  • They can cause side effects, such as vomiting, diarrhea or allergic reactions. By killing off bacteria that grow naturally in the body, they can lead to other health problems.
  • Now, obviously patients don’t write Prescriptions. Ultimately, the medical profession is responsible for this problem.
  • You should get a strep test, but no antibiotics unless the rapid strep test or culture comes back positive.

"Antibiotics can be lifesaving and should absolutely be used when they are needed — but they are not without risks and problems."

Subject: Reducing Age-Related Decline by Boosting Glutathione





A research team at Oregon State University has determined that glutathione may help ward off toxins that are an underlying cause of aging. Glutathione levels decline with age, which opens the door for a broad range of age-related health issues. High levels of it in conjunction with NAC may help reduce the toxicity of cancer chemotherapies, certain Prescription drugs, and treat other health problems. The researchers concluded that Using NAC as a prophylactic, instead of an intervention, may allow glutathione levels to be maintained for detoxification in older adults,

Key Takeaways:

  • Looking at it from this angle, research offers not only some profound insights into why animals health declines with age, but also reveals a specific compound that could help prevent some of the toxic processes involved.
  • The researchers believe that the decline of these detoxification pathways is incidentally linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer, which are some of the primary causes of human mortality.
  • We might be able to improve the metabolic resilience that we're naturally losing with age."1

"Hagen said that glutathione is such a vital antioxidant that its existence seems to date back as far as oxygen-dependent, or aerobic life itself."

If you are one of the millions of people worldwide who suffers from alopecia, there are some things you can do to try bringing back that beautiful head of hair. These things do not work for everyone, but are always worth a try. Smoking, some Prescription medications, stress, and alcohol can all have adverse effects on the hair. These, along with frequent hair treatments and tight hairstyles, should be avoided as much as possible to keep the hair nice. Just like the rest of the body, hair needs the proper balance of nutrients to survive.

Key Takeaways:

  • Without a doubt, hair is one of the most reliable indicators of the body’s health. Scientists can even test it to determine what diseases a person has had, or any drugs they have used. Almost everything that has passed through the bloodstream ends up in the hair.
  • Naturally, this includes vitamins and minerals. Many of them are essential to ensure the health of the follicle, the papilla and its matrix, and the hair that grows from it.
  • The hair that is outside the scalp has no nerves or blood supply, and is classified as “dead” tissue. It must be, or it could not be cut painlessly.
