Researched Essential Oils Fight Superbugs

Essential oils could be a cheap and effective alternative to antibiotics and potentially used to combat drug-resistant hospital superbugs, according to research presented at the Society for General Microbiology's spring meeting in Edinburgh this week.

Researchers tested the antimicrobial activity of eight plant essential oils. They found that thyme essential oil was the most effective and was able to almost completely eliminate bacteria within 60 minutes.

Essential oils have been recognised for hundreds of years for their therapeutic properties, although very little is still known about how they exert their antimicrobial effects in humans. Australian aborigines used Tea tree oil to treat colds, sore throats, skin infections and insect bites and the remedy was sold commercially as a medicinal antiseptic from the early 20th century.

Natural Heartworm Program for Pets

Many pet owners have been heartbroken when told their pet has heartworms since the chemical treatment is so toxic there is no guarantee that the dog will survive it and the cost is most often beyond the financial capabilities of some pet owners.

For cats, heartworm disease is less common, occuring about 10% of the rate that it occurs in canines. For example, in southern Florida which has continual mosquitoes, the rate for dogs nears 100% in outside dogs, so an outside cat would have a 10% chance of getting heartworms. The chance of an indoor cat getting infected is pretty low, but has been indicated as a possibility. The nice thing about herbal prevention is that the herbs build health and in the process eliminate other kinds of parasites that may create other health problems and certainly challenge the immune system.

Herbs such as Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris), Clove Flower Buds (Eugenia caryophyllata), Garlic (Allium sativum), Spearmint Herb (Mentha spicata), Turmeric Root (Curcuma longa), Black Walnut (Juglans nigra), and Wormwood (Artemisia annua) are examples of what can be used to formulate an effective preventative and part of a treatment program.

Robin Sockness-Snelgrove's dog was diagnosed with a severe case of heartworms. She had decided to do an herbal alternative to the chemical treatment since her veterinarian did not think her dog could survive it. She had seen herbs work effectively for many things with the people and pet members of the household, so she wanted to try the natural route.

It worked! Her dog has tested clear for four (4) checkups and she was interviewed by Whole Dog Journal for an article in the August 2002 issue.

We are now calling the program she used, "The Bandit Program," after the name of her dog. She has a website to let others know about what she did and is willing to help others in any way she can to save their pets from the poisons of the typical heartworm prevention and treatment.

Noni Discoveries

Morinda citrifolia, commonly known as noni, has been and still is used in Polynesian folk medicine as a panacea or cure-all. In reviewing the scientific literature on noni, we find very few credible references describing phytochemical investigations.

However, folkloric and anecdotal literature is abundant. Morinda citrifolia is called 'Indian mulberry' in India where the leaf, roots and fruit of the plant are used for various medicinal purposes.

In Polynesia, the fruit is commonly used for pain relief associated with arthritic joint ailments. The juice of the fruit is consumed as a beverage, and the skin of the fruit is used as a poultice for pain and wound healing.

Noni juice has been shown to be a potent cancer preventative through stimulation of the immune system and by promoting antioxidant activity.1

Dr. William J. Keller, Vice President of Health Sciences and Educational Services at Nature's Sunshine Products, realizes the benefit of preserving and protecting good health and therefore has made a commitment to further investigate and substantiate the folkloric uses of this medicinal fruit.

While noni's traditional uses are known, very little information is available for the compounds responsible for health benefits. That is why Dr. Keller set out to discover and investigate these compounds. Read the entire article.

Self-help Treatment For Binge Eating

Help to control binge eating could be as simple as a self-help book and check-ins with a health educator, according to new research out this month.
Binge eating is the most common eating disorder in the United States and remains a difficult condition to identify and treat.

Many patients who suffer from the disorder believe they are overeating and seek weight-loss treatment rather than mental health help, experts said. Even when they receive a proper diagnosis, the treatments for binge eating are expensive, time-consuming and sometimes difficult to obtain, according to eating disorder experts.

Researchers at Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research examined whether a self-guided program would help 123 study participants. They were mostly women with an average age of 37, who binged at least once a week. Read the details at CNN.

Supplement Product Labeling Lies

If It's On The Label, Then It Must Be True
by Darlyn Britt

Health supplement label guidelines were established by the Food and Drug Administration to ensure purity and provide consumers with helpful information. These mandate an accurate listing of all product ingredients and notations of active ingredients/constituents in each product.

Just how accurate are their claims? Nature’s Sunshine recently tested a few of our single herbs against some competitors. Here’s what we found.

We tested Nature's Sunshine Kava Kava against three popular brands, measuring the amount of kavalactones (the key active component) per capsule. Nature's Sunshine Kava Kava was the only one of these products that actually contained the amount of kavalactones indicated on the label. The others fell short. And of the four brands tested, Nature's Sunshine’s product was the least expensive.

We tested Nature's Sunshine Korean Ginseng against another leading brand, measuring the amount of ginsenosides (the active component) per capsule. Nature's Sunshine Korean Ginseng guarantees a potency of 12 mg ginsenosides per capsule, which it met or exceeded in our test. You would need almost three times as much of Brand A’s product to equal the ginsenosides available in Nature's Sunshine’s product. And Nature's Sunshine Korean Ginseng costs less.

We compared Nature's Sunshine High-Parthenolide Feverfew with a leading brand, measuring the number of micrograms of parthenolide in each capsule. Nature's Sunshine’s product contained almost 24 times more parthenolide than its competitor and met its label claim.

While consumers would have more confidence in the health supplement industry if this were true, it simply isn’t. Label claims can be wrong, and the only way to know this is by testing the products. Since most consumers have no way of doing this, they simply trust manufacturers to provide true information.

Labels don’t always tell the whole story! Trust Nature’s Sunshine to deliver what we say we will every time.

Worm Glue May Fix You

From Creation Moments.

Job 12:7 "But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee...."

While materials scientists are always interested in super-strong glues, they are especially interested in super-strong glues that harden under water. It turns out that a small marine worm called the Sandcastle Worm has a few things to teach them.

The Sandcastle Worm builds itself a tube-like shell by gluing together sand particles and bits of shell. It is the glue it uses that is of interest to scientists. This amazing glue not only hardens under water, it hardens in 30 seconds.

The glue comes from a special gland in the Sandcastle Worm. While it hardens quickly, after several hours it becomes like leather. After analyzing it, scientists identified several of the proteins that are responsible for its properties. They also found that half those proteins are either very negatively or very positively charged.

Attempting to mimic the glue, scientists mixed together some of the same charged proteins to see if they would bond broken bone together in a wet environment. Their glue not only bonded the bone together, but remained neither acid nor alkaline which is crucial for materials used in living bodies. Scientists also report that the glue is not poisonous.

As we study how God created things, we are learning better ways to do things. This is surely evidence that an intelligent Creator is responsible for the creation.

Tense Nervous System

Nerves are somewhat like "electrical wires' that allow almost instant communication to the far reaches of the body. Minerals are bound in organic compounds that form strands emanating from nerve cell bodies. The longest fiber is a hollow tube that transmits messages to other nerves, or to the site of various tissues that respond. Other strands act more like roots to sop up energy from adjoining nerves, which then are interpreted and transmitted to the next receiving station.

During this process various nerve-transmitting chemicals either switch on the next nerve or switch it off. We've all experienced twitching, which can result from nutritional deficiencies. This problem is often due to a lack of neurotransmitters that turn on and off the nerve affecting a muscle and it therefore fires indiscriminately, making the muscle contract momentarily.

Cramps may be the result of nerves being turned on and never off, and with the constant contraction of the muscle, oxygen from the blood is unable to squeeze into the tissue to replenish the cells, which immediately sends a painful SOS to the brain.

It is thought that electrical signals are transmitted on the outside of the neural fibers or tubes connecting the network.

The on / off neurotransmitters chemicals are manufactured in the main body of the nerve and flow down the middle of the tube to the end, called the "synapse sage transfer.

The receiving arms of the next nerve also contain neurotransmitters that immediately recock the nerve to receive the next signal. These fiber tubes are protected by a myelin sheath (likened to insulation on a copper wire) to keep them from shorting when touching other nerves, or losing power into an adjacent tissue. Make Your Present "Tense" A Thing of the Past.

Feds Found Pfizer Too Big to Nail

Imagine being charged with a crime, but an imaginary friend takes the rap for you.

That is essentially what happened when Pfizer, the world's largest pharmaceutical company, was caught illegally marketing Bextra, a painkiller that was taken off the market in 2005 because of safety concerns.

When the criminal case was announced last fall, federal officials touted their prosecution as a model for tough, effective enforcement. 'It sends a clear message' to the pharmaceutical industry, said Kevin Perkins, assistant director of the FBI's Criminal Investigative Division.

But beyond the fanfare, a CNN Special Investigation found another story, one that officials downplayed when they declared victory. It's a story about the power major pharmaceutical companies have even when they break the laws intended to protect patients. Read the entire article.

Supplements: Natural Health Insurance

Supplements Are Effective, Natural Health Insurance
by Steven Horne, RH(AHG)


Many years ago I was helping out a friend who suffered from severe emotional problems. I gave her some free herbs and supplements, which were helping to balance her nervous system and regulate her blood sugar. Unfortunately, when she was admitted to the psychiatric hospital, her doctor confiscated them and threw them away.

According to her, her doctor said, "Don't waste your money on supplements. You can get all the nutrition you need from a McDonald's hamburger, milk shake and French fries." I was amazed by this. If he had said, "You can get all the nutrition you need from a well-balanced diet," I might have given him some credit, but as the movie Super-Size Me proved, no one can be healthy on a diet of fast food.

But it does beg the question. Are supplements really necessary? Can you really get all the nutrients you need from a well-balanced diet? Of course you can. Dr. Weston Price found that native people living on traditional diets were extremely healthy and rarely got sick. However, all the animal food they ate were from wild animals and they ate organ meats (brains, heart, liver, glands, etc.) not just muscle meat. Furthermore, their diets contained plant foods that we think of as medicinal herbs (like dandelion, burdock, chickweed, etc.).

So, can you really get all the nutrients you need from a modern supermarket diet? Probably not. Most of the fruits and vegetables are 14-days old and have traveled an average of 1,000 miles to reach the produce section. That's enough time for huge nutrient losses to occur. Even the organic meats, eggs and dairy products aren't the nutritional equivalent of their wild-caught counterparts, and the commercial animal proteins are extremely lacking.

And, this is the real food we're talking about. Most people are eating heavily processed foods. There is no way that this food can provide all the nutrition the body needs to be healthy. It's a major reason why we have huge problems with obesity, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, cancer and the other serious health problems that plague most modern people. Native people living on traditional diets didn't have these problems!

So, even if you're eating real, whole foods, it doesn't hurt to supplement a little. Here are the seven basic types of supplements I find most people benefit from. I think investing in some of these supplements will do more good for your health than the new "health insurance" legislation passed in Washington this week. These supplements are real health insurance, especially when coupled with a good diet and other healthy lifestyle practices.

You don't need to use all seven of these supplements. Pick the three or four that are most appropriate for you.

SuperFood Supplement

The first thing most people think of when they think supplements is a multi-vitamin and mineral. If you want to take one, that's great, but I personally don't do well on them. What I do like are whole food supplements like Ultimate GreenZone and the new Love and Peas protein powder (which contains whole foods as well as extracted protein from peas and rice).

I also like herbal supplements like HSN-W, I-X and other formulas of nutrient-rich herbs. I find the body assimilates and utilizes the nutrients from these whole foods better than vitamin and minerals supplements. I use specific vitamin and mineral supplements more like "natural drugs" to provide temporary support for the body while it heals.

But, whether you choose a multi-vitamin or a superfood supplement, a basic supplement helps make sure you're getting extra nutrients to make up for deficiencies in modern foods. I like to think of it as taking out "nutritional health insurance."

Minerals

The mineral content of our foods has dropped to less than 10% of what it was 100 years ago. We simply cannot get the minerals we need from food alone. That's why I highly recommend that at least periodically, people should take Ionic Minerals with Acai or Mineral Chi Tonic so they get the trace minerals they need.

Enzymes

Most people don't eat enough raw food. Traditional diets had a lot of fresh, raw food, which is rich in enzymes. Traditional cultures that consumed more cooked food also ate enzyme-rich fermented foods. This gave them the enzymes their diet was missing. Since most of us don't eat fermented foods, but do eat a lot of cooked food, I think a basic enzyme supplement like Proactazyme Plus or Food Enzymes is essential for most people. This is especially important after age 50 when digestive function begins to decline.

Fiber

It's no secret that most Americans don't get enough fiber. Adequate fiber, taken with plenty of water, lowers cholesterol, protects you against colon and other cancers, helps your body get rid of environmental toxins and keeps you regular.

My favorite fiber supplement is mixing Psyllium Hulls Combination half and half with freshly ground flax sees. I take about 2 heaping teaspoons of this daily. However, I'd start slowly (1/2 teaspoon) and work up to it if you're not used to taking fiber. Also make sure to drink plenty of water when you're taking fiber. If you don't, you not only won't get the benefits of it, it could give you a condition a friend of mine called "stuckie gutsies."

Also, if you have colitis or any inflammatory bowel disorder you're better off using straight slippery elm or Everybody's Fiber. It's gentler on the bowel. Gentle Move and Intestinal Soothe and Build will also be helpful in this case.

Probiotics

If you've never taken antibiotics, steroids, birth control pills or chemotherapy and you've never drunk chlorinated water and you eat natural yogurt or other fermented foods every day, you probably don't need to supplement the friendly bacteria in your colon. Everyone else probably needs Probiotic Eleven or Bifidophilus Flora Force.

Antioxidants

If we were eating lots of fresh, locally grown produce we wouldn't need antioxidant supplements. However, if you don't eat your fresh fruits and vegetables every day (and most people I know don't) or you have any kind of inflammatory condition, you need Antioxidants like Thai-Go.

Essential Fatty Acids

If you eat grass-fed meat, drink raw milk from grass-fed cows, use eggs from pastured chickens and eat sardines, wild salmon or deep ocean fish several times a week, you are getting your omega-3 fatty acids naturally. If you don't, you may need to supplement them, as well. Flax seed oil or Super Omega-3 EPA or better yet, the new Krill Oil will get you what you need.

Sensible Supplementation

I personally don't take everything on the above list every day, except for maybe my enzymes, but I do take most of the supplements on the above list fairly regularly. And, I eat a fairly healthy diet, as well. I think it's the combination of the two that has kept me fairly healthy into my mid-50s, and I believe that the extra nutrition (coupled with other good health practices) can keep me vibrantly healthy into my 80s and 90s.

So, yes, I believe that supplements are important for people living in modern society, even if you eat a fairly healthy diet. And they are essential if you're going to indulge in those fast food burgers, fries and milk shakes on any kind of regular basis.

How Toxic Is Your House?

Did you know many household cleaners contain a chemical called formaldehyde (also known as embalming solution), which could cause severe irritation to our pet's eyes, throat and skin?

Or how about rug and carpet shampoos, they contain a chemical called perchloroethylene, which can cause dizziness, insomnia, nausea, tremors and loss of appetite?

Some floor polishes contain chemicals that can cause cancer as well as damage to the heart, kidneys, liver and central nervous system. As a matter of fact, most household products do not even warn you of the chemical dangers they could cause. So how toxic is your house?.

Vitamin D Shrinks Breast Cancer Cells

Doctors have known that low levels of vitamin D are linked to certain kinds of cancers as well as to diabetes and asthma, but new research also shows that the vitamin can kill human cancer cells.

The results fall short of an immediate cancer cure, but they are encouraging, medical professionals say.

JoEllen Welsh, a researcher with the State University of New York at Albany, has studied the effects of vitamin D for 25 years. Part of her research involves taking human breast cancer cells and treating them with a potent form of vitamin D. Read entire article.

Abstinence Program Most Effective For Kids

An abstinence-only education program is more effective than other initiatives at keeping sixth- and seventh-graders from having sex within a two-year period, according to a study described by some as a landmark.

The study, published in the current issue of the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine, indicated that about one-third of the preteens and their young teen classmates who received an eight-hour abstinence lesson had sexual intercourse within two years of the class.

By comparison, more than half of the students who were taught about safe sex and condom use reported having intercourse by the two-year mark, and more than 40 percent of students who received either an 8- or 12-hour lesson incorporating both abstinence education and safe sex reported having sex at two years.

Get a Younger Brain

From Creation Moments.

How did Noah have sons and build the Ark when he was 500 years old? Today, scientists can measure a marked decline in mental abilities even in a healthy 50-year-old man. Undoubtedly there are several factors, with God behind each of them. However, one of the answers appears to be nutrition.

Research done by Tufts University showed that middle-aged men with the lowest amount of vitamin B6 in their blood only scored half as well as men of the same age with the highest level of vitamin B6.

Another four-year study looked at a population of people in which 15 percent could be expected to develop Alzheimer's disease. It found that not one person who took vitamin E or C developed the disease.

A Framingham Heart study found that people who ate three extra servings of fruits and vegetables a day reduced their stroke rate by 22 percent.

University of New Mexico researchers looked at the effects of vitamin B supplements in older people. They found that those who took the supplements not only scored higher on mental functions than those who did not, but they even did as well or better than young people.

Over 50 studies have confirmed that ginkgo biloba helps memory and concentration, reduces confusion and mitigates effects of Alzheimer's disease.

Our wise Creator has given us powerful nutritional tools to help our earthly time be healthy and productive. Perhaps Noah and the other long-lived ancients knew more about how to eat healthily than we do.
