Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." – Arthur Schopenhauer
(NaturalHealth365) It’s a household staple for many, and as such, coconut oil may not get the hype it truly deserves. Yet this amazing substance – actually a solid fat rather than an oil, as it is stable at room temperature – can up your health game in almost every way.
Recent meta-studies show a surprising number of potential benefits, both in their number and variability. While many of the possible perks require more research, other evidence has been shown through Ayurvedic and other natural medical traditions for thousands of years. So if you’re wondering whether you should get more coconut oil in your diet, here are 10 reasons to do so today.
(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) Research confirms what natural health experts have insisted for years: that the gut microbiome – the community of bacteria in the intestinal tract – plays a vital role in health. Researchers say imbalances in this microbial community – alternatively known as dysbiosis – can trigger a laundry list of unwanted health conditions, including increased risk of obesity, autism, “leaky gut,” and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis.
(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) Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ10, is a nutrient found in many foods and occurs in the body naturally. It is a powerful antioxidant that works to prevent cell damage, but it also has several cardiovascular advantages. It is also a major component of metabolism.
Several studies show how CoQ10 helps cardiovascular function and its multitude of benefits throughout the body. While most healthy people do get enough of the nutrient naturally through their diet, some do choose to take supplements to address specific health conditions such as heart or inflammation.
There’s more, though. This incredible nutrient is so beneficial to the body. Here are 10 health benefits of CoQ10.
(NaturalHealth365) While artichokes feature a nutty, mild flavor when properly prepared, their interlocking leaves and armor-plated appearance convey the perception that they are the “tough customers” of the food world. And, when it comes to defending your health, it turns out that artichokes really do live up to their intimidating appearance. These odd-looking members of the thistle family, botanically known as Cynara cardunculus var. scolymus, contain a roster of antioxidant compounds that help combat serious conditions such as heart disease, liver disease, and cancer.
Mel and Raven have some fun talking about the benefits of raw organic nutrition and their own wellness journey’s, share success stories and offer motivation to help keep up the wellness passion. The best is yet to come.
In this interview, Ari Whitten, author of “The Ultimate Guide to Red Light Therapy,” reviews the mechanics and basic benefits of red light and infrared light. Whitten, who has a degree in kinesiology, exercise science and movement science, has studied natural health, fitness and nutrition for over 20 years. He’s been a personal trainer, health coach and nutritionist for many years, and went on to do a Ph.D. program in clinical psychology.
(NaturalHealth365) According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates, in the U.S. alone, over 34 million people live with diabetes, and another 88 million with prediabetes. Add the two numbers together, and you end up with a “public health crisis.”
(NaturalHealth365) Cancer – second only to heart disease as a leading cause of death in the United States – claimed over 600,000 lives in 2019 alone. And Alzheimer’s disease, now the sixth leading cause of death, currently affects over 5 million Americans – a number that the Alzheimer’s Association predicts will skyrocket as the population ages, potentially tripling by the year 2050.
While these statistics are bleak (conventionally speaking), we are not helpless in the face of these two dreadful health conditions. In fact, scientific research supports the ability of a plant-based diet to help alleviate and even prevent both cancer cell growth and brain damage.
