Your throat chakra is called “Visuddha” in Sanskrit which means “purity.” And if you think about it – even just visually – the name makes sense. Look at your body. Your lower body which contains your first three chakras and the “bridge” chakra, your heart, create a fairly wide energetic passage way. Suddenly, at the throat, all the upward-moving energy of your lower body must be moved into the very narrow passage way of your neck.
Fasting is extremely common in many religious groups, and some people even do it as a part of their diet and health regimen. What happens to your body during this time? Watch this video to hear about the short and long-term effects of fasting.
Most farmers in El Salvador prefer to source their seeds locally, and aren’t interested in Monsanto’s GM seed. Farmers have successfully used indigenous seed, and have never needed to rely on biotech for a viable seed source. Indigenous seeds make sense not only economically, but environmentally, as well.
Retired California dentist Stan Rutner was diagnosed with lung cancer which had metastasized into his brain. After a round of unsuccessful chemo treatments, his condition worsened with pneumonia from radiation inflammation and he was hospitalized. Stan’s doctors told him he would be gone in a few weeks. Stan’s daughter Corinne recommended cannabis to treat Stan’s condition – or at least help…
Chocolate offers a wealth of healthy benefits. It’s loaded with antioxidants which can help fight oxidative stress and inflammation. But the benefits certainly don’t stop there. One study, published in The Journal of Nutrition found that chocolate containing plant sterols and cocoa flavanols were able to lower cholesterol and reduce blood pressure.

Ever since the first form was founded, martial arts has been known to be an activity that helps one strengthen mind […]
The 21st century has seen rapid urbanisation and the global population is now expected to grow to more than 8.3 billion by 2050. Currently, 800m hectares – 38% of the earth’s land surface – is farmed and we’ll soon need to give over another 100m hectares if we continue to use current agricultural methods. That’s not additional fertile land that actually exists though, so some are investigating the potential of vertical farming.
While there is a man in Bolivia said to be the oldest living person in the world, at 123 years of age, a village in China is boasting ages far older than the global average, and few suffer from any health problems. Scientists believe the secret is in their diet, which actually includes lots of hempseed.
There is quite a barrage of information about what not to do in order to stay healthy – don’t eat processed food, don’t drink too much alcohol, and don’t watch too much television top the list. But instead of focusing on what you shouldn’t do to improve your health, here are 10 extremely simple ways to become more healthy today, with very little effort:
Water is a bountiful gift of nature. We see it all around us in the falling rain, lakes, rivers, the ocean, early morning dew, waterfalls, taps, swimming pools, showers and even plastic bottles. Until the recent industrial era we drank water freely from streams and rivers, not giving a second thought to whether it was safe – it just was. So where did things go so wrong? With our bodies composed of somewhere upwards of 60% water, it is an important element for human life; a basic human right. When did water become a controlled commodity?
A recent study found that organic foods and crops have a suite of advantages over their conventional counterparts, including more antioxidants, less toxic heavy metals, and fewer, less frequent pesticide residues. Overwhelmingly the research found that organic crops have definite nutritional benefits that stem from the way the crops are produced.
When it comes to cancer treatments and research, scientists are typically looking for solutions at a molecular level. But, a new study suggests investigating cancer cell metabolism could be even more effective. Specifically, this study demonstrated how green tea compounds work to fight cancer by interrupting the cancer cells’ ability to grow and flourish.
