Natural Remedies -The Food We Eat
The most important natural remedies for good health are the foods you eat. We are all aware of the necessity to eat a “well balanced” diet, but understanding just what “well balanced” means may take some thought.
We have all heard that the soil in which our food is grown is “played-out”. That is, it no longer has the nutrients that it had when it was first farmed.
Therefore eating asparagus or corn, as an example, from most farms will no longer give us the vitamins and minerals that it did in the past. Thus making it necessary to supplement our diets with vitamins and minerals.
In addition to the depletion of the soil on farms some new undesirable elements have been added to the soil.
Herbicide and pesticide use is now prevalent and they will find their way into most of the foods we eat.
What can you do about this problem. We will be suggesting solutions on our web pages.
Natural Remedies -The Water We Drink
We are constantly assured that the water we drink is safe, but the news broadcasts are telling us about lead and other contaminants in the water supply.
The city that I live in found the shoreline of our water supply strewn with used hypodermic needles.
In addition to needles many people flush unused prescription drugs including hallucinogenic drugs down the toilet making their way into the water supply. As bad as this sounds there is an additional problem. Most municipal water plants do not test to find out all the contaminants that are in the water they are sending us. Therefore many contaminants find their way directly into our homes. We will be recommending water filters for safe drinking water.
Natural Remedies -Vitamins
I was recently amazed watching two doctors on television advising the viewers not to eat breakfast cereal everyday for fear they might get a vitamin overdose. First of all it would seam to me that the danger would be a sugar overdose and not a vitamin overdose. I would challenge these doctors to site one incident where a patient was treated for a vitamin overdose from eating breakfast cereal everyday.
No, the prevalent problem is not that the general population has too large a vitamin intake but rather too small.
The big natural remedies Vitamin news today is about Vitamin D3. The problem is that we are not getting optimal levels of vitamin D3 because we are avoiding the sun. With optimized levels of vitamin D scientific literature suggests greater than 70% reduction of all cancers, greater than 80% reduction for breast cancer, 60% reduction of diabetes type 1, 50% reduction of multiple sclerosis and 30% reduction of heart attacks. When was the last time your doctor tested your vitamin D3 levels?
We will cover many of these vitamin issues in the articles on this website.
Other vitamin issues we will be discussing are Biotin (vitamin B7), Folic acid (folate, vitamin B9), Niacin (vitamin B3), Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), Riboflavin (vitamin B2), Thiamin (vitamin B1), Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K.
Natural Remedies -Minerals
If you go to the doctor an get a standard blood test you will probably not be tested for Magnesium, and yet as a natural remedy Magnesium is absolutely necessary for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It is necessary for Glucose and fat breakdown, production of proteins and antioxidants and the regulation of cholesterol. When was the last time your doctor wanted to test your magnesium level?
We will be writing about Magnesium in Natural Remedies as well as Calcium, Phosphorus, Potassium, ect.
We are excited about the useful information that we will be providing.
I understand that you may be confused about Natural remedies. Heaven knows that I was. First of all where should you buy your vitamins and minerals? My personal preference is not to buy my vitamins and minerals from a drug store. Why? Because it is difficult to guarantee that you will be getting the quality and dose that the bottle describes. I have heard of some drug store brands that only contain a trace of the vitamin they should have. This may lead you to be disapointed in your treatment when you never actually received the dose you thought you were getting. I will be recommending some companies that sell only pharmacutical grade vitamins and minerals with guaranteed contents.
Another question you may have about getting started with Natural Remedies is where can you conveniently get your blood tested for various vitamin and mineral levels? You may be reluctant to ask tour family physician or you may have asked only to be told that he won’t order the tests.
I have the solution for you and will show you how to get your blood tested locally and sent to a licensed laboratory for fast and accurate results. This is really great news and I highly recommend using this service if your doctor will not order them for you. I will give you the information soon inside.
Wishing you all the best for a beautiful and healthy life.
