Consuming Ashwagandha Root Shows Improvements In Muscle Strength, Size and Recovery


'There's a host of health benefits available through ingestion of ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) root, but some lesser known benefits have been published in the Journal of The International Society of Sports Nutrition including improvements in muscle strength, size, and recovery, according to results of a new randomized, prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study.'


The Dangers of Sleeping Too Much

'Sleep is such an important part of your overall health that no amount of healthful food and exercise can counteract the ill effects of poor sleeping habits.

Researchers have linked poor sleep to a number of ailments, from short-term memory loss and behavioral problems, to weight gain, diabetes, and even increased risk of cancer, just to mention a few.

Yet while most of the literature emphasizes the ramifications of insufficient sleep, research shows too much sleep isn’t good either.'

'Cancer cells have a high metabolism and require much energy for rapid growth. Researchers reported in the journal, Cancer, that that garlic compounds produced reactive oxygen species in brain cancer cells, essentially gorging them to death with activation of multiple death cascades and blocking pathways the proliferation of brain tumors.

Garlic is probably nature’s most potent food. It is one of the reasons people who eat the Mediterranean diet live such long healthy lives. Garlic is also a powerful performer in the research lab.'

'Fears surrounding exposure to microbes are omnipresent, which is why it may come as a surprise to find research showing infection with certain "germs" confers significant health benefits.

We live in a day and age where germ theory has undergone a sort of apotheosis, assuming an almost Godlike power to affect and permeate every area of our lives with the fear of infection.'


Study: Candida Infections Can Be Controlled with Coconut Oil

'A new study from the University of Tufts shows that a diet high in coconut oil can control Candida yeast infections. 

In addition to this study and other previously published studies, there have been many anecdotal reports on curing Candida by including large amounts of coconut oil in the diet. 

The studies also confirm coconut oil’s efficacy for curbing Candida without side effects from the oil itself, a claim anti-fungal pharmaceuticals cannot make.'


Try Nature's Flu Shot Instead of a Toxic Jab - 9 Ways To Keep Your Immune System Strong

'There's a long list of reasons why flu vaccines don't work. Besides unquestionably interfering with your immune system, they increase infection rates and hamper flu prevention more than any other intervention that exists. Nature has the ultimate flu shot with pure, ultra immune boosting power that a vaccine can never match.'


FDA Attacking Supplements to Boost Alzheimer's Drug Sales?

'Is this why brain supplements are suddenly under attack? Action Alerts!

Does the FDA want to clear away competition for the new drug?

This wouldn’t be the first time this has happened. Just as the first SSRI anti-depressant drug was coming out, the agency banned the amino acid tryptophan. The SSRIs prevented the body from removing serotonin. 

Tryptophan is used by the body to make serotonin, so the natural supplement was seen as unwanted competition for the drug. The agency used a bad batch of the tryptophan made in Japan as its rather flimsy excuse.'

Mammograms Send Women To Their Deathbeds Faster And Increase Their Risk of Breast Cancer As Much As 30 Percent

'Even with the established evidence which supports the long-term health risks and danger of mammograms, the medical community still pushes them like pancakes. 

Besides over diagnosis and the unnecessary treatment of insignificant cancers, mammograms cause radiation-induced breast cancer themselves, increasing several risk factors for the disease.'

Dr. Burzynski on Trial Again – Will His Life-saving Cancer Treatments Ever be Available to the Public?

Originally from Poland, Dr. Burzynski has been researching and developing a unique approach for curing cancer since 1976.

His approach avoids the carpet bombing chemotherapy of conventional oncology that destroys healthy cells as well as cancer cells. Nor does it involve radiation or surgery, and there are little to no side effects.'

'When was the last time you thought about your cooking fat? The fat you choose to use in cooking can make the difference between a meal that supports health and a meal that throws off free radicals, thought to be a primary cause of the degeneration we refer to as aging. 

The higher the cooking heat, the more likely you are to be bombarded with free radicals, set off by breaks in fatty acid chains. There are only a few fats that can defy oxidation and its cousin, rancidity.'

'If you’re over the age of 60 and never exercised a day in your life, you probably think it’s too late to start now. Not only would you be wrong in that statement, but you would also be denying yourself the heart-boosting benefits exercise has to offer. Specifically, exercise can ward off heart failure.'


Addicted to Distraction

'I was horrified. All my life, reading books has been a deep and consistent source of pleasure, learning and solace. Now the books I regularly purchased were piling up ever higher on my bedside table, staring at me in silent rebuke.

Instead of reading them, I was spending too many hours online, checking the traffic numbers for my company’s website, shopping for more colorful socks on Gilt and Rue La La, even though I had more than I needed, and even guiltily clicking through pictures with irresistible headlines such as “Awkward Child Stars Who Grew Up to Be Attractive.” '
