Making Penicillin at Home


Hey Prepper Nation, Accumulating medications may be simple when it comes to finding aspirin and other non-prescription drugs but prescription drugs will be hard to get for those who can’t write their own prescriptions or don’t have a relationship with an understanding physician who can. Antibiotics are a case in point.

Black Garlic, the New Healthy Superfood — And You Thought You Knew Everything About Garlic -

Though not as well known as its white counterpart, black garlic is enjoying a rise in popularity in gastronomic circles and the alternative health field. Introduced to the health and food markets about 5 years ago by the Koreans, garlic becomes “black garlic” through a month-long process of fermentation under strictly controlled heat and humidity. The health benefits of fermented black garlic are being touted by natural medicine practitioners, herbalists and others.

6 Easy-To-Use Homeopathic Remedies For Colds And Flu
0
0
Flu season is here. Many states are reporting that the flu is widespread, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. When it comes to the flu, traditionally the very young and the elderly have been the most likely to get infected. But a recent report by USA Today said that young adults may be more likely to get infected by the predominant flu strain of H1N1. Because the flu is often more dangerous than a common cold, it’s important to understand the difference. Key symptoms are similar, but flu is usually more severe and characterized by severe body aches, headaches and fever, and can last for a week or more, compared to most colds which last just a few days. Homeopathic remedies can be effective in managing symptoms associated with flu and colds by reducing the severity of symptoms, and encouraging a speedier recovery.* The key to success in doing so is matching the right homeopathic remedy with an individual’s symptoms. This can be challenging. To help, we’ve put together a simple web page application with content from Dr. Stephen Messer, N.D.’s Cold & Flu Remedy Finder.

A gripping tale of microbes, medicine & money, UNDER OUR SKIN exposes the hidden story of Lyme disease, one of the most serious and controversial epidemics of our time. Each year, thousands go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, often told that their symptoms are all in their head. Following the stories of patients and physicians fighting for their lives and livelihoods, the film brings into focus a haunting picture of the health care system and a medical establishment all too willing to put profits ahead of patients.

To overcome diseases and potential attacks of disease causing agents, I rely over their prevention. It is not interest curing a disease. We can avoid these situations in various circumstances. Some of my preferred ways are using nature products are :

Using white camphor oil with aroma diffuser to kill potential disease causing bacteria from interior of my home.
Using Citronella oil to ward off those disease causing mosquitoes.
Having almond oil for my skin rejuvenation.
Massaging hair with argan oil to prevent dandruff and hair fall.
Sipping drinks with cashew nut oil for better health of heart.
Using white pepper oil to massage my joints to avoid arthritis.
Using clove leaf essential oil for strengthening my teeth.

and the list goes on.......

Always remember PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE.

In fact most of the common ailments are ideal for relieving by using natural elements such as essential oils due to their excellent therapeutic properties.

Six Healthy Oils to Include in Your Diet
0
0
Despite the bad reputation that fat has developed in recent years, our bodies need a certain amount of the right kinds of fats in order to function well and prevent disease. Certain oils are excellent sources of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and other vital nutrients. Let’s take a look at several oils that can be very beneficial to our health.

A Word about Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)

Omega 9 is not technically an EFA, as the body can produce limited amounts of it, if there is a proper balance of other necessary Essential Fatty Acids. Much of the disease in this country and in other developed nations, both physical and mental, is due to an excess of omega 6 found in poor diets heavy on processed foods, sugar, and animal fat. Consuming healthy oils can help to bring EFAs back into balance and prevent many debilitating conditions. Choose unrefined and organic oils that have been cold-pressed to preserve their nutritional potency.

Adding beets to your diet could do you a world of good
0
0
Beets are rich in betaine, which stimulates liver cell function and helps keep the bile ducts healthy and flowing so the body can properly eliminate toxins. Beets protect against heart disease because another benefit of betaine is its ability to reduce homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is the toxic amino acid that increases risk of cardiovascular disease.

Betaine, also known as trimethylglycine (TMG), is a mood enhancer. It increases serotonin levels and can be used to help relieve many cases of depression.

Drinking just over two cups of beetroot juice daily may help keep your blood pressure in check, according to a study. Within three hours of drinking 500 milliliters (about 17 ounces) of beetroot juice, volunteers showed a significant decrease in blood pressure. What’s more, that drop in blood pressure was sustained for up to 24 hours after the juice was consumed.

Beets help protect against cancer, particularly colon cancer, and there is something called Beet Therapy which doctors once used to get rid of tumors and to help with blood diseases and leukemia (before masking symptoms with drugs became the fashion). The leaves of raw beets should be eaten along with the root, as they add even more useful and beneficial health benefits.

The leaves have been known to counter “garlic” breath, and in Roman times Hippocrates advocated the use of beet leaves as binding for healing wounds.

Among the other healthy uses of beets are:

12 Plants Native Americans Used To Cure EVERYTHING
0
0
The Native American tribe Cherokee is indigenous to the Southeastern United States. This tribe believed that they have been given a gift by the Creator which enabled them to understand and use medicinal herbs.

They believed and used the benefits of nature’s pharmacy. Moreover, as plants can become scarce over time, they had a unique gathering method and they picked every third plant they found and thus made sure that they will leave sufficient to continue to propagate.

However, the following 12 plants were used by this tribe in the treatment of almost every single illness and health condition. However, before we explain their properties, we must warn you that they can be quite strong and dangerous if not used properly.

Keep in mind that the Cherokee healers were experienced as they had centuries of practice. Furthermore, it is of high importance to understand their value as powerful natural medications, so you should be gentle when scavenging them.

These are the natural plants that provide amazing health benefits:

Magic mushrooms found to be powerful medicine that CURES depression
0

(NaturalNews) Researchers at Imperial College London recently went to great lengths to obtain psilocybin and use it in clinical tests to investigate its medicinal value for treating severe depression. It took 32 months for the research team to meet all the licensing requirements to even conduct the trial. They also commented that the price per dose was literally 50 times more than what it should have cost in a "sane world."

Twelve participants with severe depression signed up to receive high doses of the banned psilocybin. They were given capsules orally and monitored closely.

The medicinal properties of psilocybin were quickly realized. In just one week, all the participants were free of depression and self loathing. After three months, there were no lingering symptoms of depression whatsoever for five of the participants.

The Beckley Foundation's Amanda Feiling participated in the research, and praised the study: "For the first time in many years, people who were at the end of the road with

Reverse Osteoporosis with Prunes
0
0
(The Best Years in Life) Prunes build bone. Excuse me, dried plums build bone. Whatever the preferred moniker, research by Dr. Bahram Arjmandi from Florida State University shows that eating only 10 of these bite-sized sweets per day actually reverses osteoporosis in post-menopausal women.

In a clinical study of 58 women, eating 100 grams of dried plums per day improved bone formation markers after only three months, compared to a control group served 75g of dried apples. This supported previous animal models showing increased bone density and improved bone structure on a microscopic level.

In another study, benefits were seen in male rats with low testosterone levels, suggesting men with osteoporosis could benefit from a few daily dried plums as well.

This information is especially timely, considering recent reports of increased risk of fracture for patients on long-term bisphosphonate treatment. Bone is a living tissue, constantly remodeling itself. Osteoclasts reabsorb bone, helping shape its normal trabecular structure. On the other hand, osteoblasts make new bone. Normally, these processes are balanced, maintaining healthy, strong bones.

When osteoclasts get the upper hand, more destruction of old bone than construction of new occurs. This leads to weak osteopenic bone, or even fragile oseoporotic bone.

Most pharmaceuticals act by inhibiting osteoclasts, which leaves bone harder, but more brittle because of their change in structure. Architecture is just as important to the strength of bones as buildings: microscopically the intricate archways apparent in bone are just as beautiful as those in ancient Rome. Furthermore, slowing down osteoclasts can only retard bony reabsorption.

Prunes work by stimulating osteoblasts, enabling them to promote new bone formation and actually reverse osteoporosis. Researchers postulate this may be related to their boron content. Also found in nuts and other dried fruits, boron helps regulate both mineral metabolism and hormone levels. By reducing loss of calcium and magnesium in the urine, more of these essential minerals are available for building bone.

Additionally, boron upregulates estrogen, which in turn increases calcium absorption. Finally, boron helps convert vitamin D to an active state needed for the osteoblasts to utilize the calcium in laying bricks of new bone.

Dried plums benefit the body in other ways, too.

by Barbara Minton

(The Best Years in Life) A compound found in turmeric, the yellow spice that’s in almost every kitchen spice rack, is turning out to be miraculous. Known as curcumin, this compound is no newcomer. It has been one of the most frequently used medicinal herbs in the medicine systems of China and India for thousands of years. Today PubMed, the U.S. national library of medicine, shows 8963 studies and papers involving curcumin, suggesting it has been highly documented in the Western world as well. What makes it so in demand? It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and cancer fighter and many systems in the human body respond positively to curcumin. Plus, the side effects are minimal and the cost is relatively low.

An exciting new study reveals that Hibiscus tea may be far more powerful than pharmaceuticals in combating deadly flu viruses.

The search for safe and effective treatments for drug- and vaccine-resistant forms of influenza, including H5N1 highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses (HPAIVs), has lead a group of researchers to investigate whether commonly used herbal tea extracts might provide a viable natural alternative.

In the new study titled, “High antiviral effects of hibiscus tea extract on the H5 subtypes of low and highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses,”researchers investigated the anti-viral properties of the following herbal extracts, which were prepared through boiling in ultrapure water for 2 hours:

Medicinal Update: How to effectively treat viral infections, including Ebola and Zika
0
0
NaturalHealth365) Ebola virus infection typically results in a rapidly evolving clinical syndrome that results in death in a week or less in a majority of the cases documented in areas of Africa, even though the incubation period leading to clinical disease can last up to three weeks. However, probably the main factor in determining whether a fatal outcome is quickly seen depends on the immunocompetence and nutritional status of the infected individual. Although the Ebola “panic” initiated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other governmental health organizations in 2014 had many people wondering if they would be lucky enough to avoid infection and “inevitable” death, it has been well-documented that individuals can have Ebola antibodies circulating in their blood, indicating they encountered or contracted the virus but had a completely protective immune response. This was the case in 11 individuals working with Ebola patients in Central Africa who were tested. Infections rapidly leading to death seen in seemingly well-nourished individuals can be avoided

Robert Rowen, MD demonstrated that a protocol of ozone, vitamin C, and a supplement containing multiple antioxidants is highly effective in resolving (curing) clinically symptomatic, documented cases of Ebola virus infection in Sierra Leone. The ozone was administered by direct intravenous gas administration, rectal ozone gas insufflation, and the ingestion of ozonated water. A daily dose of four to eight grams of vitamin C was given, along with two tablets daily of a supplement containing thiamin, riboflavin, selenium, N-acetyl cysteine, glutathione, lipoic acid, and an additional small amount of vitamin C. Chikungunya virus produces a syndrome that is truly debilitating, with severe joint pains that often persist for months and even years. Indeed, some individuals appear to never completely recover from it. In Puerto Rico, in the middle of a very sizable Chikungunya epidemic, a physician treated 56 patients with a single infusion of vitamin C (ascorbic acid), dosage ranging between 25 and 50 grams, followed by a single infusion of hydrogen peroxide (3 cc of a 3% solution in 100 cc of normal saline). 60% of the patients reported a dramatic reduction in pain immediately post-infusion, and 5 of the patients (9%) reported complete elimination of Chikungunya virus-related pain.

This was the first report in the peer-reviewed medical literature that applied infusions of both ascorbic acid and hydrogen peroxide in a treatment regimen. A 20 to 25% recurrence/relapse occurred after this initial approach, and a complete resolution of the virus was typically rendered with three additional infusions of vitamin C (Marcial-
Vega et al., 2015). What’s really behind the spread of most viral infections?

"Is the FDA suppressing Chinese Medicine herbal cures for Zika?"


(NaturalNews) When a real pandemic devastates humanity, one of the primary causes of mass death will be the refusal of health authorities to even consider the realm of natural medicine as a source of plant-based cures. Instead of looking for answers to a pandemic from across the entire realm of existing medicine (herbal medicine, indigenous medicine, naturopathic medicine, etc.), today's corrupt institution of for-profit medicine is only interested in patented pharmaceuticals or vaccines, even when such interventions might take years to produce. "We raised the price from $1,700 per bottle to $75,000. Should be a very handsome investment for all of us." -- Actual email from Big Pharma CEO Martin Shkreli, relishing the profits to be made from jilting medication consumers. With the Zika pandemic now exploding across Mexico and Central and South America, the U.S. media and pharma-infected government is predictably urging the dumping of tens of millions of dollars into vaccine research (to the delight of the vaccine industry, of course). But what if a cure already existed that could be made available right now for pennies a dose? Chinese Medicine herb "Qing Hao" holds amazing defense against malaria and bowel cancer. A Chinese Medicine herb known as "Qing Hao" also happens to contain a powerful natural cure for malaria and colon cancer.

"A pound-a-day pill that has revolutionised the treatment of malaria – and is based on a Chinese herbal remedy – could be the latest weapon against bowel cancer," reports the Daily Mail UK. "Early trials show that bowel-cancer patients who took the drug for two weeks before surgery were:

Medicinal Update: Heard About the Wonders of Colloidal Silver - Colloidal Gold?
0
0
(The Best Years in Life) You've probably heard about the wonders of colloidal silver - but how about its precious metal sister colloidal gold? Colloidal gold, which is tasteless and non-toxic, has some amazing benefits of its own for a wide variety of health applications and a long history of use – often in combination with its colloidal sister silver. Colloidal Gold Enhances Mental Ability, Focus and Mood. Perhaps the most amazing health benefits offered by colloidal gold are enhancements in mental function. Many users, including this author and his partner, find a noticeable improvement in mental focus and in mood. Historical uses as well as scientific studies indicate that there are good reasons for such improvements. Historically, gold has been used to treat unstable mental and emotional states, such as depression, S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder), melancholy, sorrow, fear, despair, anguish, frustration, and suicidal tendencies. Furthermore, in the study "Effect of Colloidal Metallic Gold on Cognitive Functions:

A Pilot Study" published in the "Journal of Frontier Sciences", subjects scored a whopping average increase of 24 points on standardized IQ tests after being given colloidal gold daily for four months. A natural stimulant and rejuvenator for cells throughout the body, colloidal gold improves the transmission of electrical signals between nerve cells in the brain. In part this may because gold is a catalyst for endorphin-like hormones. Gold also enhances the antioxidant enzyme superoxide desmutase (SOD).

Colloidal Gold and Cancer

In recent times, colloidal gold has been used both separately and in combination with colloidal silver to help fight many forms of cancer, including prostate and ovarian cancer. It has been theorized that gold helps prevent the spread of cancer by essentially encapsulating cancer cells yet still allowing colloidal silver to penetrate the cells. In July 1935, the medical periodical “Clinical, Medicine & Surgery” had an article titled “Colloidal Gold in Inoperable Cancer” which recognized the benefits of using colloidal gold against cancer. The author of the article, Edward H. Ochsner, M.D., Chicago-Consulting Surgeon, Augustana Hospital, stated: “When the condition is hopeless, colloidal gold helps prolong life and makes life much more bearable, both to the patient and to those about them, because it shortens the period of terminal cachexia (general physical wasting and malnutrition usually associated with chronic disease) and greatly reduces pain and discomfort and the need of opiates (narcotics) in a majority of instances.”

“Real” Cinnamon Boosts Intelligence

Cinnamon is one of the most potent antioxidants in the world and . regular consumption can lower blood sugar, help digestion, ease arthritis, lower blood pressure and even ward off Alzheimer’s. New research has found the first evidence that cinnamon has the potential to boost human intelligence. When it comes to the highest antioxidant values on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale, cinnamon comes in third only lower than clove and sumac. The learning improvement in poor-learning mice after cinnamon treatment was significant. As one example, poor-learning mice took about 150 seconds to find the right hole in a maze test called the Barnes test. After one month of cinnamon treatment, poor-learning mice were finding the right hole within 60 seconds, a remarkable improvement. The effect appears to be due to sodium benzoate, a chemical produced as cinnamon breaks down in the body. (Sodium benzoate may sound familiar, because food makers use a synthetic form of it as a preservative. Also, it is approved by the U.S. FDA for treatment of hyperammonemia — too much ammonia in the blood.) Scientifically speaking, there is only one true cinnamon, which is most commonly called:

Natural Healing: 5 Favorite Cancer-Fighting Essential Oils & 5 Ways to Use Them

One of the most powerful forms of plant-based medicines in the world is essential oils. From promoting relaxation to soothing skin scrapes, to supporting healing and the fight of disease, essential oils offer countless benefits to your life. Let me be clear – the use of these oils is no “fad.” Essential oils have thousands of years of history in traditional medicine, in the most ancient of cultures. The Egyptians, the Chinese, the Greeks… they all used essential oils. From the times of Biblical medicine on through to today, essential oils are used throughout the world. Until fairly recently they’ve been better accepted and popular outside of the United States… but I’m happy to see that so many Americans are catching on to the immense benefits of these healing oils. One of my favorite examples of the long history and effectiveness of essential oils is about a group of thieves in England who, despite daily contact with corpses who had succumbed to the Black Death (the plague), didn’t get sick. The story goes that the King heard about these men who would:

What is Considered a Weed to Some May be a Powerful Medicine to Others.
0

What is considered a weed to some may be a powerful medicine to others. Valued in many cultures worldwide, this herbaceous succulent provides an array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It’s omega-3 content rivals any other green land plant and often grows almost uncontrollably. Walking like an Egyptian was something the Bangles taught us, but if we wanted to eat like the Egyptians it would include the addition of purslane. Common purslane (Portulaca oleracea) is often overlooked as it sprawls out of sidewalks, driveways, and is considered a pesky weed to many gardeners. But this superfood has been cultivated for over 2000 years and has an extensive culinary and medicinal history. Purslane is a creeping plant that forms an intricate branching mat over large areas of ground. With leaves that are round, green, and have a waxy appearance, purslane belongs to the succulent family. The round stem stays fairly close to the ground and varies in color. Once you are able to identify purslane, you will be surprised at its ability to thrive in some of the harshest growing conditions. Perhaps its ability to thrive in stressful environments is part of what makes this plant so beneficial. Purslane contains an impressive amount of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an essential omega-3 fatty acid. In fact, it ranks near the top for omega-3 concentration amongst the green leafy land plants. With the growing demand for omega-3 supplementation and a dwindling wild fish population, purslane offers an abundant and cheap alternative.

“One hundred grams of fresh purslane leaves (one serving) contain about 300-400 mg of 18:3w3 [alpha-linoleic acid]; 12.2 mg of alpha-tocopherol; 26.6 mg of ascorbic acid; 1.9 mg of beta-carotene; and 14.8 mg of glutathione. We confirm that purslane is a nutritious food rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.” [Simopoulos AP, 1992] Aside from omega-3s, this weedy warrior contains vitamins A, C, and E, magnesium, potassium, iron, manganese, and protein. With its nutrient-dense constitution, this plant can provide a plethora of health benefits. Purslane is such a powerful antioxidant that it can protect against one of the most harmful substances to the liver, acetaminophen (one brand name is Tylenol). In a scientific study:
