Food As Medicine: Rooibos Shines As A Potent Defense Against Alzheimer’s, Cancer Hypertension And More



If you are a fan of green, black or white tea you may want to rethink your beverage of choice. Rooibos (Aspalathus linear) trumps all three with its substantial health enhancing features. Even if you are not an ardent tea drinker, a second look at this red hued nectar is worth your while for the sake of disease-free living.

Elixir of wellness

Indigenous to South Africa, rooibos is an exceptional healing herb. According to Medicine Hunter Chris Kilham, a Japanese study found it has notable antimutagenic, anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic and antiviral properties. Teeming with formidable antioxidants, rooibos is a powerful defender of health. Kilham affirms:

"... rooibos is a source of two comparatively rare antioxidants, aspalathin and nothofagin. Aspalathin helps to modify hormones in the body and reduces the output of adrenal hormones specifically, thus reducing stress and helping to inhibit metabolic disorders. Aspalathin also helps to regulate blood sugar and therefore can play a role in reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes and excessive fat production. The antioxidant nothofagin also demonstrates significant anti-inflammatory activity and, along with aspalathin, may help to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Both appear to protect nerves."

Exceptional Botanical Kills 98% of Cancer Cells in Under 24 Hours




The same herb frequently eaten as salad in Asia has been shown to destroy cancer cells — without harming healthy tissue. Researchers at the University of Washington have created a compound based on traditional Chinese medicine that is 1,200 times more effective in killing malignant cells than chemotherapy drugs. Combined with iron, the herb selectively targets cancerous cells and has proven to be a powerful tool in combating the disease. Tomikazu Sasaki, senior author of the study and chemistry professor at the University of Washington, describes the compound as “… a special agent planting a bomb inside the [cancer] cell.”

Over One Hundred Studies Agree: Cannabis Annihilates Cancer


Rick Simpson, a medical marijuana activist, believes he's discovered a cure for cancer. Interestingly, he shared this finding (along with the active agent of cannabis oil) with others — completely free of charge. You see, Simpson is on a crusade to help others heal because he wholeheartedly regards cannabis as the most medicinally active plant on the face of the earth — and he has thousands of testimonials from those who were healed from ‘incurable’ disease to back up his claims.

Paleo Diet For Cancer-Free Living? Research Says Yes



A few vegetarian and vegan hackles will be raised due to research demonstrating a low-carb diet may be a better choice for preventing and healing cancer. Unfortunately, vegetarian diets tend to rely heavily on carbohydrates - mainly in the form of grains. When excessive carbohydrates are consumed, tumor growth is aggravated as a consequence of increased glucose and insulin levels. Considering the typical Western diet is 55 percent carbohydrate, it's no wonder cancer rates are through the roof. The problem is further inflamed by organizations like the American Cancer Society who advocate atrocious food choices for cancer patients. Rife with propaganda and misinformation, the establishment has kept the myth of  healthy high-carbohydrate diets alive.

Erase a decade off your face, dodge cancer and conquer inflammation with these vitamin C-rich foods

(Natural News) With the cold and flu season in full swing, fortification with vitamin C is one of the most effective and potent methods for dodging illness. And yet, this well-known nutrient is often overlooked as an outstanding anti-aging, cancer-destroying, disease-busting and mood-boosting addition to the diet. To encourage health throughout the winter and beyond, consuming foods which naturally supply high levels of vitamin C is a smart move.

Glow with health

Exceptional sources of vitamin C include hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa L.), which is enjoyed as a tart tea, and rosehips (Rosa canina), which lends a floral flavor to infusions. And then there are two fruits that contain the highest levels of vitamin C documented - amla and camu camu. Amla is widely used in Ayurvedic medicine and "reported to possess radiomodulatory, chemomodulatory, chemopreventive effects, free radical scavenging, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic and immunomodulatory activities," notes a study at Muller Medical College in Kankanady, India.

Creating Heart-to-Heart Coherence and Living a Heart-Centered Life

(SHIFT>) There is an incredible amount of knowledge that we as humans can gather up from the plant kingdom with a heart-centered approach. By gathering information directly from the “heart of nature," we are able to realize the interconnectedness between humanity and the planet in a way that may conjure up themes from films such as Avatar. As more scientific research comes forward concerning the abilities and properties of plants, the more we learn that there are so many things that the plant kingdom is able to teach us, especially concerning harmony and balance.

A book that came our a few years ago entitled "The Secret Teachings of Plants: The Intelligence of the Heart in the Direct Perception of Nature," details these things in a very elegant way and shows us that the ancient shamanistic tales of oneness, interconnectedness, harmony, and balance with respect to humanity and nature’s relationship are indeed true. The human heart is significantly more important than most people realize, and in order to spread awareness of this reality, secret excerpts from the book will be provided to show just how important and sophisticated the heart truly is.
