Subject: Barley grass is one of the best green super foods for improving gut health





Barley grass — the leaf of young stalks of barley — has lots of health benefits, especially for digestion. Its anti-inflammatory properties may explain why it seems to help prevent the development of ulcerative colitis. Barley grass is an excellent source of multiple B vitamins, as well as vitamins C and K, calcium, potassium and other important minerals. It’s also great for detoxification of the body, thanks to its bountiful supply of a antioxidants and chlorophyll. Barley grass makes a great ingredient to juice mixes or smoothies, and can also be bought as a supplement.

Key Takeaways:

  • When people want to add more greens to their diet, they usually go for the usual like lettuce and kale. But adding barley grass is equally important.
  • Barley grass is important to the diet because it helps the gut in digestion and it supports a healthy gut microbial population.
  • Ulcerative colitis, a bowel condition that is due to the inflammation of the bowel, can be prevented by taking barley grass.

"In addition, barley grass is rich in digestive enzymes, which are substances that can help eliminate toxic and indigestible materials in food."

Subject: Is vitamin D a key factor in breast cancer prevention?





CDC data shows that nearly 41,000 American women died of breast cancer in 2013 alone, making it a leading causing of death among women from all racial groups. However, research indicates a strong association between living in a place with lots of sunshine and lower risk of breast cancer. This is almost certainly due to sunlight’s role in production of vitamin D. Only the type of vitamin D produced by the skin from sun exposure seems to have this kind of strong impact on breast cancer rates.

Key Takeaways:

  • Cancer is an ancient disease that dates back several years with the earliest known writing on it recorded about 1,600 years before Christ.
  • Among all the cancers, the most common and most feared of them all by many women is breast cancer and this is regardless of ethnicity.
  • While many scientists and institutions are battling hard to find a cure for cancer, there is a vitamin, Vitamin D, that can be used to solve the problem.

"In fact, breast cancer is the leading cause of death among Hispanic American women, and the second highest cause among white, black and Asian/Pacific women."

5 Foods To Help You Fight Insomnia

Subject: 5 Foods To Help You Fight Insomnia





Insomnia, which is a chronic lack of sleep, achieved because the insomniac can't seem to enter a state of sleeping, or because the sufferer can't sustain the state once achieved, is a debilitating problem for many. While there exist pharmaceutical interventions for insomnia, there are also more natural ways to combat the problem, specifically food choices that may help. Tryptophan is the hormone that releases the relaxing chemical serotinin, that helps sleep arrive. Hummus has natural tryptophan. Kiwi has specific phtyochemicals and antioxidants that also promote sleep. Healthy carbs tend to make us sleep, which is why corn is a good sleep-promoter. Milk is another healthy carrier of tryptophan. Chewing on basil might help too as it eases mental woes and soothes troubled digestion.

Key Takeaways:

  • A word that can be used to describe insomnia in this our era is habitual sleeplessness and this phenomenon is on the rise.
  • Insomnia when it becomes habitual causes restlessness and anxiety. At night, even though one is exhausted, sleep does not come and one gets fidgety and the mind blurry.
  • Insomnia has treatment or remedies to cure the condition which involves medication, therapies, and soothing products, but sometimes these remedies do not work.

"The sugar level in candies is capable of upsetting your blood sugar levels which leads to the interruption of your sleep. You might sleep well immediately after eating them but after some time, you will wake up irritable. Corn is a healthy carb you should incorporate in your diet."

Subject: Does Hemp Oil Have Health Benefits?





Hemp oil is a type of CBD oil that is extracted from the hemp plant and has only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive substance in marijuana. Because the THC levels in hemp are so low (and legal), it does not give you that high affect. Hemp is high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and is a known anti-inflammatory. Some claim the fatty acids in hemp oil alleviate anxiety, physical, and emotional pain linked to PMS and other conditions. According to some research, the polyunsaturated fats in hemp oil may decrease cholesterol levels, making it a heart healthy substance. However, most hemp studies have not been conducted on humans and the substance itself has not been thoroughly tested for heavy metals, plastics or pesticides. For these reasons, it may be best to wait until hemp is more closely regulated before making it a part of your daily routine.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many persons seem to have taken on the trend that CBD oil is good for them because it has many health benefits.
  • Many persons think that hemp oil, the sister to CBD oil is good for them, and believe the claims that it is good for anxiety and sleep.
  • The difference between hemp and marijuana is that marijuana contains high amount of THC, the stuff that makes one high in cannabis, while hemp contains low amount.

"Not only does hemp oil not have any real health benefits, but it may contain stuff that's actually bad for you."

Alpha-Lipoic Acid(also known as ALA) may be the next great discovery of how to affect health for the better on a cellular level. ALA is made in the center of a cell, in the mitochondria, and seems to help with weight loss, lessening the severity of diabetes, memory loss, cell degeneration and more. Since humans only make a small amount in their bodies, some supplements are available. However, there have been only limited studies on effectiveness and none at all for children.

Key Takeaways:

  • The powerhouses of human cells, specifically the mitochondria, is where alpha lipoic acid normally resides.
  • One study purported that skeletal muscle energy metabolism improved with the use of alpha lipoic acid, suggesting that improved calorie burning rates could resu!t.
  • Data further suggests that alpha lipoic acid may aid the body in maintaining health cholesterol and sugar levels.

"Since humans can only produce ALA in small amounts, many people turn to supplements to increase their intake."

Subject: Could eating chili peppers actually help you live longer?





Do you enjoy your food spicy? Well, there is good news. The University of Vermont recently published a study of people who are chili peppers versus those who did not. They discovered that the chili eaters tended to live longer lives. In fact, a surprising 12% was the absolute risk reduction. Chili peppers have long been regarded as containing health benefits. They have been used to treat toothaches or other forms of pain. They are also loaded with antioxidants and vitamins A and C.

Key Takeaways:

  • In a study conducted by the University of Vermont involving 16,000 people over 23 years, people who said they eat hot chilli pepper were found to live longer.
  • Although the actual mechanisms by which hot chilli peppers can make one live longer are still unknown, the results obtained are very encouraging.
  • This study confirms previous studies that show that there is an inverse relationship between eating spicy foods and mortality.

"It may not always feel like you’re going to live longer after you’ve consumed a very spicy meal, but it seems that those hot peppers are doing quite a bit of good."

Subject: These natural fixes can prevent heartburn





It’s estimated that 46% of people suffer regularly from heartburn. The good news is that heartburn can be treated through many natural remedies. One way to address heartburn is to improve digestion. The most basic way to do this is to chew your food properly. Quite simply, take smaller bites and chew for what seems like a long time. Also, avoid food triggers such as spicy foods, onions, mint, and carbonated drinks, all of which contribute to acid reflux. Finally, weight loss and decreasing your intake of alcohol and caffeine can also help to ease your heartburn woes.

Key Takeaways:

  • Nearly half of the people in the world experience heartburn and experience it on a regular basis.
  • Pharmaceutical options take care of the upset, but fail to address the digestive lack that brought the situation on in the first place.
  • Avoiding caffeine and spicy foods, minimizing stress, even chewing more slowly, are all fixes that can help.

"To reduce the need for over-the-counter medications, here are some tips on how to get rid of heartburn once and for all."

Subject: Homeopathy 101: How autoimmune disorders begin and how to treatthem holistically





Autoimmune disorders are caused when the immune system lacks on its main purpose and attacks itself. Many people struggle to find a way to get their immune systems. Studies have shown that homeopathy could shed some hope for people with immune disorders. When a homeopath looks at their patients, they want to know one's symptoms, pains, or sensations that they feel. They treat people as a whole, not one problem at a time, using this way of treatment is actually natural and less harmful than other options.

Key Takeaways:

  • The immune system is human's natural way of protecting itself against toxins and diseases.
  • Some people are more prone to getting sick because of the lifestyles that they live.
  • Homeopathy is about treating each person in a unique manner and not just focusing on the symptoms.

"Autoimmune disorders are prolific in today’s world, and many people who suffer from them are desperate for solutions that just can’t seem to be found."

Type 2 diabetes is something that is really common in the world today. There seems to be so many people who are struggling from it. Doctors have found ways to deal with it and the people who have it always have to go through a process to maintain healthy sugar levels. However, the emergence of magnesium as a potential factor in the prevention and treatment of the disease is promising. By incorporating more magnesium into one's diet, it can make a big difference.

Key Takeaways:

  • Type 2 diabetes prevalence is rising in America and 30 million Americans are purported to have it. It is one of the leading causes of death in America.
  • Scientists now believe that magnesium can be used to control type 2 diabetes because of its usefulness in several enzymatic reactions.
  • Americans eat less of vegetables, nuts and fruits. It is estimated that of the 12% of vegetables that Americans consume, 6% come from French fries.

"New research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has shown that achieving ideal magnesium intake can help prevent type 2 diabetes, as well as improve blood glucose levels in people who’ve already been diagnosed with the condition."

Depression is something that a ton of people in the world today suffer from. It is not an easy thing to deal with. However, if you are someone who has it, then you must find how you can cope with it. It may be hard but there is always something that you can do to help yourself. Understanding where depression comes from is difficult as well. However, some doctors say that it can be caused by some brain inflammation.

Key Takeaways:

  • Some neurologists believe that depression is caused by brain inflammation and these inflammations are not readily noticed because the brain doesn’t have pain receptors.
  • People with chronic inflammation are at higher risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease because it causes inflammation of the brain, making the amygdala smaller.
  • The brain chemical deficiency model of depression is the model that scientists have been working on for very long time and it fuels Big Pharma producing harmful chemicals.

"Chronic inflammation is largely caused by unhealthy lifestyle habits such as poor diet, lack of physical exercise, and inadequate sleep, among others. These behaviors, while seemingly inconsequential initially, fuel the inflammation response long after it stops being helpful."

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."

5 easy ways you can boost your energy levels

While many people feel tired a lot of the time, healthier habits can help you be more energetic. Eating lots of unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods can help, as can engaging in regular, moderate levels of physical activity, even if you really don’t feel like it at the time. Getting enough sleep and learning how to relax and de-stress can both also help you feel refreshed and better rested. Finally, if your fatigue persists, consult your doctor, since in some cases it can be a symptom of an underlying condition.

Key Takeaways:

  • A healthy diet is a key to boosting energy, especially if you eat dark fruits and vegetables such as berries and broccoli.
  • You may not feel like exercising when your energy levels are low, but walking, yoga, and tai chi can make you feel more energetic.
  • Although it is normal to feel more tired as you age, you should see a doctor to rule out any serious health problems.

Make an INFORMED decision: Everything you need to know about colloidal silver

There is a rich history that goes back for centuries, associating the use of colloidal silver with the treatment of wounds and various illnesses. Today, the FDA does not acknowledge the use of colloidal silver as medicinal, calling assertions by practitioners and users as "unfounded."

Nonetheless, many practitioners and users have found the substance to be of high value, particularly in the treatment of wounds, burns, cuts and infections. Colloidal silver is deemed to be both antiseptic and antimicrobial. Neither is colloidal silver associated with any serious side effects, save one. Unfortunately, the 'one' is a doozy and responsible for much of the foot-dragging, when it comes to accepting colloidal silver.

It seems that it is possible to have the skin turn blue, a condition called, "argyria," with the taking in of too much colloidal silver. However, although the condition is real and not reversible, it is also highly unlikely, considering the normal dose users ingest of colloidal silver is one teaspoon and that dose would have to go up to 48 teaspoons every day, for an entire year to possibly have enough in the system to develop argyria.

Key Takeaways:

  • Colloidal silver has a long, rich history as a treatment for wounds, burns, cuts, sprains and infections.
  • Colloidal silver's benefits, which have been observed by both practitioners and users, are undoubtedly the result of its being both antiseptic and antimicrobial.
  • The normal recommended dose used by those that ingest colloidal silver is one single teaspoon, which is far to small an amount to develop argyria, a rare side effect.

"There are are a number of misconceptions about colloidal silver being spread around as “truth,” while the facts regarding its uses and benefits are being obscured — as is the case for so many alternative treatments these days."

CBD Oil Proving Beneficial For Individuals With Autism

CBD, that is cannabis, (marijuana-based) or cannabidiol, (hemp-based) oil is already noted for its positive medicinal affects as an anti-inflammatory agent and a mood-booster and as a compound that mitigates the potential of seizures. It is also gaining ground as a supplement that positively affects those with autism.

Unfortunately, however, while both types of CBD appear to be beneficial to autism-sufferers, it seems that in the case of autism the psychoactive element available in the cannabis, or marijuana-based oil, has an edge over the hemp-based product.

Nonetheless, autism-sufferers and parents of autism-sufferers should know that considerable relief may be possibly obtained even with the hemp-based product, which is already legal, or legal with conditions (although not FDA approved) in many of the fifty states and which will hopefully soon be legal in all of them.

Key Takeaways:

  • One high profile case, involving the use of CBD oil, involved a non-speaking autistic 9 yr. old, who became verbal after two days of oil usage.
  • Study suggests that while cannabis and cannabidiol are both effective for autism-sufferers, the addition of the psychoactive substance, THC, may make cannabis the more effective choice.
  • Currently, cannabis oil is not FDA approved and is only legal, or legal under certain conditions, in some states.

"Marijuana (cannabis) and hemp-derived products, including CBD, are known to provide relief from chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation, seizures, fibromyalgia, autism and other related conditions."

How exactly does fish oil help the heart? It counteracts the effects of mental stress

A study was recently done in which one half of the participants received fish oil, and the other half received olive oil as a placebo. When the participants were relaxing with a resting heart rate, there didn't seem to be any change between both groups of participants. However, when the group members were put into distressing situations, it was shown that those who had the fish oil had much lower levels of mental stress than those who received the placebo.

Key Takeaways:

  • The study performed included 67 adults who got their overall health assessed by researchers beforehand.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids that were included in the fish oil had the ability to increase the rate in which their bodies absorbed calcium.
  • Due to the improved calcium absorption, the fish oil also aided into helping patients with joint-related ailments such as arthritis.

"Participants who took fish oil exhibited blunted heart rate reactivity while they were stressed compared to those who took olive oil."

Selenium, vitamin K2 and nicotinamide riboside ride new research toward roles beyond being ...

When we're in need of a new multivitamin, we typically just run to the local drug store and take whatever we see on the shelf. Lately, researchers have been digging deeper into what these mainstream pharmaceutical companies are putting into these multivitamin supplements. A good example is a chemical called selenium. Studies by certain commercial corporations claim that it has cancer fighting abilities, but the research seems to be a bit vague and even watered down.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many of the controversial ingredients in vitamin K2 are found originally in fermented products.
  • Fortunately, one benefit of vitamin K2 is that it has been shown to improve the transportation of calcium which improves vascular health.
  • Niacin was discovered all the way back in the 1930's by Conrad Elvehjem, PhD. He was an experienced biochemist.

"New indications for ingredients that have been featured in many multivitamin products have helped to expand their reach into different formulations and even standalone products."

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."

Subject: Here's how the body prevents helpful bacteria from causing disease





The body is pretty amazing in how it can detect foes. The system is literally called "friend/foe" and it is the immune system's response to all bacteria. Researchers examined mice for a particular strand of bacteria known as Helicobacter hepaticus. This invader caused a response from T cells and immediately was acted upon as "foe." Specifically Th17 were the T cells that were able to kill the bacteria, but they have another which shuts this cell down when finding friendly ones, not causing the inflammation chain that it normally does.

Key Takeaways:

  • T-cell helper 17, or Th17, are the main cells who cause inflammation to kill cells
  • These cells seem to be able to be "turned off" when in contact with other cells that are safe.
  • This response is known as "Friend/foe" in the immune system and explains why some bacteria are not killed on sight.

"Certain bacteria, such as those from the Helicobacter family, are generally considered helpful but can cause disease when genetic or environmental factors alter the normal balance."

Coconut oil is becoming more and more seen as a superfood, not only for its health but its beauty purposes as well. Its health can be seen with its anti-bacterial qualities. There is also a link to cardiovascular health. In Polynesia, where the coconut is the main staple, rates of heart disease are incredibly low. You can also use it to replace many of the fats in your pantry, since it cooks well and even adds great flavor to coffee.

Key Takeaways:

  • Many, many studies have been conducted on coconut oil, revealing its numerous benefits
  • Yet, many media outlets and other sources tend to cast coconut oil in a negative light, despite the evidence to the contrary.
  • In order to reap the health benefits of coconut oil, which are myriad, one should use it regularly - either through topical application or consumption.

Turmeric spice can have positive effects on the brain, including beneficial effects on memory and mood. Curcumin, a chemical in the spice, also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry conducted a study in which it was proven that mood and memory were were increased. In fact 28% did better on memory tests. Curcumin seems beneficial especially for older people experiencing some memory loss or those with symptoms of alzheimer's disease.

Key Takeaways:

  • Curcumin, a chemical in Turmeric, reduces inflammation. This has many health benefits, including improved memory and mood.
  • A published study that used a small sample of middle aged individuals, found that taking Curcumin twice daily could have health benefits.
  • The study found that those participants who took Curcumin twice daily for 18 months had improved their memory. Some participants saw improvements up to 28%.

There was a study conducted at the Harbin Medical University in China that found that Morin, a flavanoid in guava and osage oranges could lessen inflamation and increase neurological deficits. It also has anti inflamation properties. In labratory mice this flavanoid seemed to reduce inflamation and restored the ability to walk, talk ( which is strange for a labratory mouse.), decreased mental function issues, and decreased loss of balance, and a weakness in the arms and legs. Essentially the study found that the flavanoid morin helped to counter act certain types of strokes, to increase motor functions to the patient.

Key Takeaways:

  • A Chinese research team has concluded a study on the potential benefits of a specific flavinoid contained in guava and other fruits.
  • According to the researchers' results, this compound can have positive impacts on people with neurological issues.
  • The researchers concluded that this particular substance might be of key importance in creating treatments for specific disorders of the nervous system.

Carbohydrates and oils cause inflammation. Staying clear of certain foods will help cool the brain and prevent inflammation. Processed foods are a likely source of inflammation. Fruits and vegetables are a very good source of foods that prevent inflammation. Brain inflammation seems to be the key to mental illnesses. Eating a healthy diet may improve these conditions and overall health. Refined sugar and oils are known to cause inflammation. More studies need to be done on how to reverse these conditions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Around one in six Americans take medication for various psychological disorders like Anxiety or Bi-polar Disorder
  • It is now thought that inflammation could be the reason for these disorders and food is the logical culprit
  • Carbohydrates from refined sugars cause free radicals to form, and cytokines are released to combat those inflammations.

Subject: Can your dog be arrested for using a cannabis extract?





Thomas McDermott, a Democrat and the Mayor of Hammond, Indiana, brought up the legality of using cannabidiol oil (CBD) for treating his Labrador retriever's arthritis at the BGD Legislative Conference in Indianapolis. At the conference was Republican Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill who last month stated that the use of CBD was illegal in most circumstances in his state after a bill passed to allow epilepsy patients to legally use the oil for seizures. McDermott questioned Hill using a story about his dog that suffered from arthritis, noting that his vet recommended using CBD oil to treat the pain. He mentioned that the oil allowed his dog to move around more easily, had more energy, and had improved appetite. McDermott thought aloud that Hill was "grandstanding" on CBD, but Hill simply stated he was following the law as it was written. When McDermott asked if his dog was breaking the law, Hill responded that the Mayor himself was breaking the law - not the dog. McDermott was upset afterwards that Hill accused him for being a criminal for treating his dog with CBD, and he has no plans to change the therapy for his dog.

Key Takeaways:

  • The owners dog currently used CBD and that is restricted in Indiana for use.
  • The dog is currently on it due to arthritis and it seems to cure his condition.
  • The final conclusion was that the owner was breaking the law, not the dog since the dog has no agency.

Patients suffering from epilepsy have begun being treated with cannabis and its variant cannabinoids with some success. The concentrations for dosing vary by patient but some cannabinoids like THC, THCA and CBC have been used for epilepsy seizure treatments. However, in studies, whole plant use seems to be most effective since it contains more than 80 cannabinoids. There are receptors in the CNS for cannabinoids and there's also a specific uptake in the liver so although safe, it may compete with other medications.

Key Takeaways:

  • CBD has been shown to have great links to neurological diseases in a range of age groups.
  • For instance, a five year old boy who had seizures daily, was given a small amount and had a 40% decrease in seizures.
  • The great thing about these cannaboids is their lack of side effects and addiction that other pharmaceuticals have.

"Cannabidiol and several other cannabis components can help patients with seizure disorders, and sometimes it's best to combine CBD with conventional anti-epileptic meds."

Key Takeaways:

  • When we want to remove the wax from our ears it is very common to use the swabs to do so
  • the problem is that the use of these can damage your ear if it is not executed correctly.
  • it seems to be difficult but it has to be done to get clean.

Many people think that measures such as wearing gloves will prevent illness when doing such activities as subway riding. However, germs are on many surfaces and wearing gloves won't prevent the person next to you from sneezing in your direction. Good old fashioned hand washing seems to be about as effective as anything else. And, a word to the wise- you are more likely to pick up an illness while at your doctor's office than a subway or your workplace!

Subject: What is Okra Good For? 5 Wonderful Benefits of Okra





Okra is a versatile plant that can provide both nutritional as well as health benefits. In terms of cooking, Okra can be prepared to your preference through roasting, boiling, frying or stewing. It can also be steamed to extract a gooey substance that can then be further utilized as a thickener in other recipes.

But Okra also has numerous health benefits as well. It is effective at filtering your blood, aiding in the treatment of kidney deisease. It acts as an antioxidant and is particularly useful in protecting you from liver diseases. It also helps regulate blood sugar levels leading to the belief that it is a viable alternative treatment for those affected by diabetes. It also has been shown to be an effective alternative for treating depression.

But perhaps the most exciting application is the possibility it presents in the treatment of breast cancer. This is currently being studied, but so far it seems that extracts gathered from Okra have shown promise in reducing the growth rate of cancer cells, and in eradicating some existing cancer cells. So this is an exciting development that bears further investigation.

Given the vast list of proven and potential benefits previously listed, Okra seems to be a vegetable that we should all be giving serious consideration to adding to our diets.

Key Takeaways:

  • Okra helps to filter blood and create cleaner blood in the body.
  • Okra is an antioxidant so it helps to keep the body away from diseases such as liver disease.
  • Okra helps to fight depression because it is an antidepressant and can help to increase endorphins.

"Okra extracts were used in a study performed to treat human breast cancer cells due to its high lectin content. The treatment both reduced cancer cell growth by 63 percent and killed 72 percent of the cancer cells."

Probiotics may be a new treatment for mental health disorders. A new study creates a connection between good digestive health and good mental health. Lab mice showed that a lack of probiotics increased anxiety, but that anxiety decreased as the bacteria was reintroduced. The study claims there is a link to the brain and the digestive tract that creates a link between the the two, leading one to compliment the other, benefitting health, and positive mental health.

Key Takeaways:

  • In the study, researchers discovered the mice living a germ-free life ended up having unusual amounts of anxiety.
  • While the microbiome-brain connection—AKA the link between digestive and mental health—has been established in other studies, this time they found a first-of-its-kind connection between gastrointestin

How safe are heartburn medications and who should use them?

Subject: How safe are heartburn medications and who should use them?





Heartburn medications that are currently prescribed might not be the most effective in treating heartburn. Many people suffer from heartburn and many of those people are prescribed what is known as "protein pump inhibitors." These medications prevent stomach cells from producing stomach acid, which causes heartburn. However, these medications often need to be taken for long periods of time and may lead to early death. While studies show proton pump inhibitors are effective at reducing heartburn, one study found a small increased risk of early death for those taking these medications and other studies have linked negative side effects, like vitamin B12 deficiency, to proton pump inhibitors. Nevertheless, the benefits outweigh the risks. Yet, it seems as though too many proton pump inhibitors are being prescribed than are necessary. Therefore, only those suffering from extreme heartburn should be prescribed proton pump inhibitors, as they can be very beneficial to treating their condition.

Key Takeaways:

  • Acid reflux is classified in two types, one with clear erosions and non-erosive.
  • Protien pump inhibitor doses of 5 mg a day were effective in significantly improving symptons in non-erosive reflux.
  • Protein pump inhibitors should not be used for extended time periods and only when necessary, as many are over prescribed and used indefinitely.

"A study found these drugs were very effective for treating reflux disease, with eight weeks of therapy with standard (once daily) dosing healing acid damage in more than 80% of patients."

Many people believe that hemp and marijuana are the same substance, but they are more like cousins than brother and sister. This is important to note since the uses of hemp are many and the effects on our environment and economy could be great. In the attached article, the author provides an overview of the historical and current uses of the hemp plant, describes the misunderstanding of its properties and details the legal and political obstacles its use has met. The author recommends that US farmers and manufacturers continue to work toward removal of growing restrictions and increased use of hemp in industrial and commercial applications.

Key Takeaways:

  • Although hemp and weed are from the same cannabis species, hemp actually contains less than 1% of THC.
  • Hemp has many environmental benefits and its products can compete with the plastic industry.
  • If we educate our legislators on the benefits of hemp, we have the potential to save the Earth.

Subject: Could Cannabidiol Be Used to Treat ASIA Syndrome?





Auto immune disorders are on the rise worldwide. While many are of unknown origin, one such disorder - ASIA syndrome, seems to be brought on by the use of adjuvants, which are compounds that are added to vaccines to boost their effectiveness. This allows you to use a lesser amount of the vaccine substance, but can cause other problems. One solution that is being explored is the use of cannabidiol (and other cannabis related products. Cannabis related compounds seem to suppress the production of cytokines common to immune reactions, which in turn helps suppress the immune response.

Key Takeaways:

  • Autoimmune disorders are on the rise, one of which is ASIA Syndrome.
  • Research indicates that CBD's are a safe way to treat ASIA Syndrome because of its anti-inflammatory treatment abilities.
  • Because it is successful as an anti-inflammatory treatment with ASIA Syndrome cannabis studies should be done to see if CBD's would be successful in treatment of other autoimmune diseases.

"Cannabidiol (CBD) is known to safely treat a huge array of ailments and disorders, the most recent being ASIA Syndrome, an autoimmune disease that is steadily increasing in developed countries."
