"I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination". Jimmy Dean. "All Truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." – Arthur Schopenhauer
(NaturalHealth365) We all know that we are what we eat; it’s knowing what to eat that can prove difficult. Your diet is a critical factor in your long-term health, and the overwhelming number of options by which we’re surrounded makes it hard to know how to choose.

In fact, this one simple diet change can increase your lifespan by as much to 10 years, a recent study says. So what have you got to lose?
(NaturalHealth365) Roughly a quarter of all adults in the United States – 58.5 million people – are affected by arthritis, a potentially debilitating condition that can jeopardize physical, emotional, and financial health. For example, over 8 million working-age adults declare that their ability to work is limited by arthritis. In addition, the sheer cost of the disease is staggering, with the Centers for Disease Control reporting that arthritis currently costs the country an astounding $303.5 billion a year.
(NaturalHealth365) With coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic dominating the media for close to two years, news of developments in scientific research appears to have been somewhat eclipsed. For example, a report from the Journal of Clinical Pharmacy and Therapeutics contained exciting findings about the ability of capsaicin in chili peppers to fight deadly diseases and reduce the odds of premature death. One would think that the reveal of a potentially lifesaving dietary intervention would have made more of a “splash” in the mainstream scientific community … but, unfortunately, the pharmaceutical industry controls the media.
(NaturalHealth365) Many foods are touted as “superfoods,” but hemp seeds have the credentials to back up that claim. In fact, no other plant-based food has such a perfect ratio of all the essential amino (and fatty) acids in such an easily digestible form for human consumption as hemp seed.
Their reputation as a superfood comes primarily from the significant amounts of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) they contain. These hemp seed benefits help to make hemp seeds a natural combatant for chronic inflammation, marking them as an important defense mechanism against chronic disease and the effects of premature aging.
(NaturalHealth365) Given the relentless pace and pressures of modern life, it’s not surprising that conditions such as anxiety and insomnia are at near epidemic levels. In fact, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that between 50 and 70 million American adults currently suffer from sleep disorders.
(NaturalHealth365) Most of us are aware that antibiotics are powerful drugs that fight bacteria-related infections with harmful side effects. Unfortunately, in today’s society of pill taking, we use too many antibiotics with the increasing danger of antibiotic resistance. The problem is further compounded with antibiotics found in factory foods like dairy and meat products.
According to the CDDEP (The Center of Disease Dynamics, Economics, & Policy), the United States is one of the highest users of antibiotics – ranking fifth in the world.
(NaturalHealth365) Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland, is so common to be almost an official rite of passage for men moving into their ‘golden years.’ By age 55, roughly a quarter of all men are affected. After that, the odds begin to soar; of men who make it to age 80, ninety percent show signs of this condition.
Bee propolis, a natural resin sourced from honeybees, hosts numerous health benefits thanks to its antiseptic, antimicrobial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Here, we’ve outlined eight of the main benefits of consuming bee propolis.
(NaturalHealth365) Heart disease remains the leading killer in the United States, claiming over 655,000 lives a year. In addition, 54 million people – almost a quarter of all American adults live with the painful, potentially debilitating disease of arthritis, the leading cause of work disability in the nation. Now, in a stroke of medical serendipity, it appears that a popular supplement may benefit both conditions at once.
(NaturalHealth365) The “graying of America” has led to soaring rates of Alzheimer’s disease, an age-related neurodegenerative condition that currently affects 6.2 million adults in the United States. And, there is worse to come. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia doubles every 10 years after the age of 60 – leading experts to predict that cases of cognitive decline will skyrocket to 13.8 million by the year 2050.
