8 Hormone Balancing Foods for Men That Improve Strength, Sex Drive & Digestion

Why is the CDC Scaring You Into 9 Vaccines You NEVER Need?

Sure, we live in a capitalistic country, and more power to the people who run businesses and make a good living selling goods and services. But, all of those who knowingly make money off other people’s demise should be shut down and fined, and maybe even jailed. That rule of thumb should go for companies, organizations and corporations too, not to mention regulatory agencies, but that’s more of a utopian world, that doesn’t exist, and from the looks of things, probably never will.

How to Use a Blend of Herbs With Conventional Therapies to Treat Cancer

Traditional herbal medicine recognized centuries ago that combining many plants delivers far better results than relying on a single plant. This is true both for supporting health and vitality and for treating imbalances and diseases. The multi-component nature inherent in medicinal herbs makes them particularly suitable for managing the multitude of issues that present in complex diseases such as cancer, and offers great potential for synergistic actions, including interactions between botanicals and the relationship of botanicals to conventional cytotoxic drugs such as chemotherapy and targeted agents.

Less is More: Ayurveda and the Art of Moderation

Less is More: Ayurveda and the Art of Moderation

And more is not always better, or, as the saying goes, less is more. One of the greatest lessons I learned studying Ayurveda with Maya Tiwari, was to be prudent with the use of herbs. We know how dangerous it is to be taking multiple prescription drugs, but we think nothing of chugging down handfuls of herbal supplements on a daily basis for months, or even years, at a time. Yes, herbs are food, but just like certain foods have contraindications for people, so do herbs, and an easy-does-it approach always works best. Sometimes just a pinch of an herb is more than enough to do the trick.
