Stem cell ads are popping up everywhere. If you know anyone that has had reason to see a doctor specializing in orthopedic or regenerative medicine then you may have heard about something called PRP. There is a lot of misinformation out there, and we had to get to the bottom of it. We’ve learned a lot and can’t wait to share it with you! Read on!
Electricity has been used in medicine since the days of the Romans. Electric torpedo fish were used for pain relief. Later, the electrostatic violet ray invented by Nikola Tesla, took the place of the fish. Nikola Tesla was the great genius who observed that high frequency electricity had significant benefits for health.
Raw, organic nuts (make sure they are raw and organic!) are a great source of healthy, unsaturated fats, fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and plant sterols. Many doctors will recommend nuts as a heart healthy snack food, as evidence has shown that people who eat nuts and seeds have higher overall health, are less likely to suffer from cardiovascular issues, and have less incidence of diabetes.
Dr. Mercola keeps posting articles on this subject, and it has me tickled pink because although this is what I have done intuitively for over 20 years, it goes against what almost all health professionals claim, which is: eat breakfast, it should be your biggest meal of the day.
Get ready, this is a longer post than we usually do, but most people have not heard of PEMF. We hadn’t either until recently. We are amazed at what we have learned, and excited to share this therapy. PEMF stands for Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field. A PEMF device sends a magnetic pulse that emits a three dimensional magnetic field into the body. This helps to re-energize the cells by inducing electrical changes within them, which restores the cells to a more normal and healthier state.
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psychoactive component of Cannabis, but as the debate rages on about the legalities and uses, there is no denying the surge in CBD oil and hemp supplements hitting the market, all with a plethora of health claims and promises.
1. Green/Black Teas: One of the best available natural remedies are “used tea bags”. They quickly reduces the inflammation and rashes.
2. Aloe Vera Gel: Apply Aloe Vera onto the infected body part. It helps in hydrating the affected area and ease the itching and soreness. You can use the leaves of Aloe Vera or purchase a high quality Aloe Vera Gel .
The brain-gut connection is no longer folklore. The gut is a viable second brain that links digestion, mood, health, and thought processes. Discover a revolutionary new understanding of tight junctions, the connection between two adjacent cells that are so close the space is almost non-existent. These junctions are how cells communicate and can be the biggest connections or disconnections of the mind-body/brain-gut relationship.
The winner has been chosen! Congratulations Kelly, we hope you love your truMedic TENS unit!
Since the start of 2016, I have been studying electricity and its relationship to healing. You can read what we have shared so far in this post. I was thrilled when truMedic contacted us about doing a product review and giveaway for a TENS unit! I knew these types of machines were commonly used by physical therapists, and coincidently my chiropractor had recently added TENS to her practice. I could deduce what the benefits are by how they are used, but I honestly didn’t know much.
What is a sea buckthorn berry? It is a small orange berry, and like most berries, they are extremely nutrient dense. What makes this berry unique is that it is the world’s richest source of omega 7. Like the goji berry, when harvested from the pristine mountainous land of the Himalayas, you get a superior product. Foods that grow and flourish in areas of high altitude, where temperatures and seasons can be extreme, have to be hearty, and always seem to have extra magical, nourishing powers.
Herbal ice cubes make a cool (pun intended) remedy for hot summer itches and scratches! Bug bites, poison ivy, hives and other allergic skin reactions can keep kids and adults up at night because of the constant discomfort. Kids especially will scratch an itch unconsciously as they are falling asleep, only to wake up the next morning with inflamed skin, not only from the reaction, but from the self inflicted scrapes which can potentially turn into an infection. A great bedtime tip for you to try is to apply herbal ice cubes. (more…)
Keep these three “A” words in mind when choosing ingredients for a post workout smoothie: Anti-inflammatory, Anti-oxidants, and Alkalize. Always reach for greens and plants for the alkalize portion (that is why we choose plant protein vs animal protein post workout). Herbs and omega oils give you powerful anti-inflammatory action, and super fruits will give you the most antioxidant protection, whether the whole food or a concentrate is used.
Let’s have a quick lesson on joint health and cartilage to help keep away the pain and stiffness commonly associated with aging.
Cartilage building cells are called chondrocytes. As we age, chondrocyte activity slows down and eventually fails to adequately compensate for the daily wear and tear placed on the joint. But don’t let that discourage you, and don’t give up on your joints!
