Joint Pain and Inflammation Help

TREATMENT OF YOUR JOINT PROBLEMS
wonderful feedback!

We take the freedom of movement for granted, until it becomes limited. The cause of this for many people comes in the form of arthritis, or the inflammation of one or more of your joints. There are two main kinds, osteo and rheumatoid, both of which affect the joint in different ways. Osteo arthritis is when the cartilage between bones wears down, until bone grates on bone. Rheumatoid is little less straightforward, being caused by an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation of the synovial membrane (a soft tissue that protects joints in the body) and that can lead to bone loss. Whichever you experience, there are natural remedies for arthritis to manage the pain and ease the symptoms.

1. Turmeric & Ginger Tea
Turmeric and ginger are both anti-inflammatorys, and will help with oseto and rheumatoid arthritis. Turmeric in particular has gotten a lot of attention lately. Its active ingredient is something called curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant. In addition, it lowers the levels of 2 enzymes responsible for causing inflammation (which is what we’re often fighting with arthritis.) You can take these in a capsule form or make a nice spicy tea to enjoy daily.

You will need…
-2 cups of water
-1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
-1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
-Honey to taste

Directions
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, and had ½ teaspoon each ground ginger and ground turmeric. Reduce to a simmer and let it be for 10-15 minutes. Strain, add honey to taste, and enjoy twice daily. This yields 2 servings.

 

Whiten teeth naturally

Dental hygiene is an important part of total body health. A healthy mouth works to prevent infections from entering the body, and some studies have shown that plaque build-up leads to a higher chance of cardiovascular disease and poorly managed diabetes. (source)

We need to take better care of our mouths. Unfortunately, commercial toothpaste is not the healthiest choice. Some toothpastes are full of plastic and most contain harmful chemicals like triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, artificial sweeteners, fluoride, propylene glycol, and diethanolamine.

Commercial toothpastes are not getting the job done as they should be, so what can we use to make sure our teeth are as healthy as possible?

This turmeric, peppermint, and coconut oil toothpaste is what we should all be using!

Turmeric Peppermint Coconut Oil Toothpaste Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon or 2 Capsules Turmeric
  • 1 to 2 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together to form a paste.
  2. Brush teeth as normal and rinse.
  3. Repeat Daily!

Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, contains antioxidants, and is antimicrobial. This makes it perfect for treating common dental problems like gum disease. (source)

Coconut oil is antibacterial, which makes it perfect for fighting bacteria that tends to grow in the mouth. It also reduces inflammation! (source)

On top of their fantastic health benefits, coconut oil and turmeric also work to keep teeth looking white and sparkly without the use of harmful tooth whitening strips or toothpastes.

If I had a choice between commercial toothpaste and this amazing turmeric peppermint coconut oil toothpaste, I would pick the latter every time! It is much healthier and will do more than just clean your teeth. This natural remedy is the complete package.

Destroy cancer cells, cleanse liver and dissolve kidney stones

 

Ginger tea recipe revealed: 

Dissolves kidney stones, cleanses liver and destroys cancer cells

(N.Morgan)  This spice has catapulted its way into being considered one of the most vital health foods of the 21st century.

It possesses the power to reduce inflammation, improve digestion and boost immunity.

Ginger is abundant in a variety of essential oils and this combination creates its exotic aroma and taste.

It is extremely effective when used as a anti-parasitic, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial.

It aids in treating cardiovascular problems and can also ease the symptoms of asthma.

Just 1 cup of tea a day can significantly reduce the chances of a stroke, due to gingers ability to break down fatty deposits that can cause blockage in the arteries.

Ginger improves blood circulation by delivering oxygen, minerals and vitamins into cells in the body.

Dr. Sircus explains the importance of good circulation: When our cells do not get ample amounts of oxygen regularly, they degenerate quickly and die. Lack of mobility, infections and toxins further decrease our oxygen status and contribute to the acceleration of illness.

Naturally, this degeneration is connected with a noticeable reduction of physical and mental capabilities typically experienced later in life. Beyond any doubt, oxygen is immediately and long-term the most essential element for our existence.

This is what makes ginger such a super food, with all of its health benefits that will result in a better quality of life and longevity.

 

 

 

You’ll need:

Raw honey (organic)
coconut milk
¼ tsp turmeric powder
¼ teaspoon ginger powder
A cup of water

Directions:

Preparation of this amazing tea is very simple, just have to add the turmeric and ginger in boiling water, reduce the heat and simmer for 7-10 minutes.

Pour the milk and strain the tea into a cup.

Add some sweetness to the tea  with honey and enjoy all of the health benefits of one of the most powerful teas.

600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World’s Most Important Herb

600 Reasons Why Turmeric Is The World's Most Important Herb

 

There is a medicinal spice so timelessly interwoven with the origins of human culture and metabolism, so thoroughly supported by modern scientific inquiry, as to be unparalleled in its proven value to human health and well-being.

Indeed, turmeric turns the entire drug-based medical model on its head.  Instead of causing far more side effects than therapeutic ones, as is the case for most patented pharmaceutical medications, turmeric possesses hundreds of potential side benefits, having been empirically demonstrated to positively modulate over 160 different physiological pathways in the mammalian body.

While no food or herb is right for everyone, and everything has the potential for unintended, adverse side effects, turmeric is truly unique in its exceptionally high margin of safety vis-à-vis the drugs it has been compared with, e.g. hydrocortisone, ibuprofen, chemotherapy agents. Furthermore, nothing within the modern-day pharmaceutical armamentarium comes even remotely close to turmeric’s 6,000 year track record of safe use in Ayurvedic medicine.[1]

Despite its vast potential for alleviating human suffering, turmeric will likely never receive the FDA stamp of approval, due to its lack of exclusivity, patentability and therefore profitability. Truth be told, the FDA’s “gold standard” for proving the value of a prospective medicinal substance betrays the age old aphorism: “he who owns the gold makes the rules,” and unless an investor is willing to risk losing the 800+ million dollars that must be spent upfront, the FDA-required multi-phased double-blind, randomized clinical trials will not occur. For additional details on this rather seedy arrangement read our article on the topic: Why The Law Forbids The Medicinal Use of Natural Substances.

Here at GreenMedInfo.com, we have reviewed over 5,000 study abstracts from the National Library of Medicine’s bibliographic database known as MEDLINE and have discovered over 600 potential health benefits of turmeric, and/or its primary polyphenol known as curcumin. These can be viewed on our turmeric research page which is dedicated to disseminating the research on the topic to a larger audience.

Some of the most amazing demonstrated properties include:

Again, what is so amazing is not that turmeric may have value in dozens of health conditions simultaneously, or that it may improve conditions that are completely resistant to conventional treatment, but that there are over six hundred additional health conditions it may also be valuable in preventing and/or treating. Consider also the fact that turmeric grows freely on the Earth, and you will understand why its very existence threatens billions of dollars in pharmaceutical industry revenue.

Supplementing with turmeric can completely reverse damage caused by fluoride

 

Turmeric shown to protect brain against fluoride poisoning

fluoride

by Jonathan Benson, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The neurodegenerative effects of fluoride are well documented in the scientific literature, and yet this toxic byproduct of industrial manufacturing continues to get dumped into the water supplies of almost every major city in the U.S. without consent. And while it may take a little more time before a critical mass of folks finally wakes up and puts a stop to this mass poisoning of the public, there is a way you and your family can better avoid the toxic effects of fluoride today through proper nutrition.

Publishing their findings in a recent issue of Pharmacognosy Magazine, a research team out of India observed that regular consumption of turmeric, a spice commonly used in Indian and Asian cuisine, helps to protect the mammalian brain against fluoride poisoning. Having previously uncovered the pathways through which fluoride induces harmful neuro degenerative changes in the brain, the team from Mohanlal Sukhadia University found that turmeric both neutralizes existing fluoride and protects against additional fluoride.

Testing the effects of turmeric in mice, the researchers observed that curcumin, the most well-known nutritive compound in turmeric, produces powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity that protects against multiple forms of cell damage, including singlet oxygen, hydroxyl radical and superoxide radical damage. Curcumin also helps spur the production of glutathione, the body’s “master antioxidant” that studies have shown plays a primary role in guarding against oxidative stress.

Supplementing with turmeric can completely reverse damage caused by fluoride

Knowing that fluoride induces both neurotoxic and neurodegenerative effects on brain tissue, particularly that of the hippocampus and cerebral cortex, the team tested the effects of fluoride alone, fluoride in combination with turmeric, turmeric alone and a control on mice that were randomly divided into each of these four groups. All the mice consumed their respective regimens for 30 days before undergoing analysis.

At the end of the study period, it was observed that mice in the fluoride group, which were given 120 parts per million (ppm) of fluoride in water without curcumin, experienced significant increases in malondialdehyde (MDA) activity — MDA is a recognized marker of oxidative stress. Mice consuming the same amount of fluoride along with 30 milligrams per kilogram of body weight (mg/kg), however, experienced a marked reduction in MDA, revealing the toxicity-mediating power of turmeric.

“[Fluoride] may cross the blood brain barrier, accumulate in mice hippocampal neuron cell bodies and initiates cascade of reactions which increases the oxidative stress that causes an increase in MDA content of brain tissue, which is an end product of LPO [lipid peroxidation],” wrote the authors.

“On the other hand, a distinctive decrease in MDA level was observed after [curcumin] treatment, compared to group treated with [fluoride]… [because] this phytochemical is capable of quenching oxygen free radicals such as superoxide anions and hydroxyl radicals, which are important for the initiation of LPO.”

Fluoride is an ‘excitotoxin’ like MSG that causes brain neurons to die

Concerning the general toxicity of fluoride, the team is convinced, based on more than a decade of extensive research, that the chemical very clearly collects and accumulates in brain tissue. Similar to the way that monosodium glutamate (MSG) over-excites brain neurons and essentially kills them, fluoride likewise produces an excitotoxic effect that can have lasting health consequences.

“Fluoride (F) is probably the first inorganic ion which drew attention of the scientific world for its toxic effects and now the F toxicity through drinking water is well-recognized as a global problem,” explains the study. “Health effect reports on F exposure also include various cancers, adverse reproductive activities, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases.”

Depression – treat with turmeric!

Turmeric more effective than Prozac at treating depression

by Elizabeth Renter

Turmeric more Effective than Prozac at Treating Depression

Turmeric more Effective than Prozac at Treating Depression

It’s common knowledge in the natural health world that pharmaceuticals often (if not always) do more harm than good. It’s also clear that foods, herbs, and other natural sources can offer similar benefits without those nasty side effects. Once again, our beliefs have been affirmed by science:

A recent study published in Phytotherapy Research says that not only is turmeric effective at treating depression, it may even be more effective than some of the most common anti-depressant drugs currently on the market.

While previous studies have indicated the effectiveness of turmeric (curcumin) in treating serious depression, this study was the first randomized controlled clinical trial of its kind.

Researchers with the Department of Pharmacology of Government Medical College in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India compared the effects of turmeric and Prozac (fluoxetine), both used together and individually, in 60 patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD).

According to GreenMedInfo.com, the researchers used the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale to measure their results:

“We observed that curcumin was well tolerated by all the patients. The proportion of responders as measured by the HAM-D17 scale was higher in the combination group (77.8%) than in the fluoxetine [Prozac] (64.7%) and the curcumin (62.5%) groups; however, these data were not statistically significant (P = 0.58).

Interestingly, the mean change in HAM-D17 score at the end of six weeks was comparable in all three groups (P = 0.77). This study provides first clinical evidence that curcumin may be used as an effective and safe modality for treatment in patients with MDD without concurrent suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders.”

While reading the researchers conclusions indicates one treatment (turmeric) is equally effective as Prozac, it doesn’t account for the negative effects of Prozac, which boost turmeric’s value considerably. Prozac is known to cause “suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders,” frightening side effects that are clearly absent in turmeric use
