Arun Shrivastava's insight:

POPPY SEEDS AND CANNABIS=============================

Frankly, I don't know this Medical Jane but the information gels with my experience.. In South Asia poppy seeds is eaten almost on a daily basis. It is food. Same way we use cannabis for food, oil, fibre, medicines. THC comes from cannabis and can/do prevent neurodegenerative diseases and also reverse cancers. Ultra low doses are ALSO GIVEN IN AYURVED AND HOMEOPATHY. This is no new discovery. It is simply claiming that there is a "discovery." Like India was discovered by Vasco de Gama and USA was discovered by Columbus.

One Of The Most Important Scientists In The World: “Most Cancer Research Is Largely A Fraud” | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it

Turmeric Boosts Working Memory In One Small Dose

Turmeric Boosts Working Memory In One Small Dose | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
One small dose of turmeric powder was found to improve working memory in pre-diabetic patients.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Another clinical trial, on diabetics this time, proves the beneficial effect of turmeric. The study concluded "We found that a modest addition of 1 g turmeric to a rather nutritionally-bland breakfast of white bread improved working memory (WM) over 6 hours in older people with pre-diabetes." We Indians normally consume about 2-3 grams per day through normal cooked food. It means there is something we are eating now that neutralises the beneficial effects of curcumin because there is now a steep rise in diabetes and related complications.

Ginger: The Enemy of Type 2 Diabetes

Ginger: The Enemy of Type 2 Diabetes | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Ginger has been studied to have value in over 150 health conditions with type 2 diabetes top of the list. With anti-diabetic drugs linked to increased cardiovascular mortality, natural alternatives are needed now more than ever.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

First, I include the URL of the list of authoritative studies published in journals of repute, here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=ginger

******************************

This article is a summary review of state of existing research and critical findings on the use of Ginger for treating Type-2 diabetes backed by relevant statistical analysis. While ginger remains one of the most frequently eaten spice in India, I have yet to find its application in diabetes under Home Remedies or as part of Local Health Tradition. This is because there are other combinations of herbs, seeds and spices available locally that permanently cure diabetes within 2 to 3 months. However, ginger powder [about 1600 milligrams per day] has shown excellent results preventing oxidative damage from anti-diabetic drugs while at the same time reversing diabetes, according to this recent publication.

Organic farming continues to rise across the globe

Organic farming continues to rise across the globe | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
2 million of the world’s 1.5 billion farmers are now producing organically, with nearly 80 percent based in developing countries. India boasts the most certified organic producers, followed by Uganda and Mexico.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

An article by Christian Science Monitor, hopefully acceptable to mainstream morons. We all know that the growth rate in demand for organic foods is growing but the Agribiz pressure on Governments to stifle funding on research is also growing. As far as India is concerned the problem is this: majority of farmers have forgotten traditional/natural farming systems after the Green Revolution con game. Now that the game is over-higher costs, more chemicals, lower yield-they are now demanding re-training in organic methods and research based learning. The question is: who will fund? For example the USA spent 1% of total Ag-budget on organic research. India made huge policy pronouncements, its farmers achieved world record breaking yields but the mandarins in Ag-Ministry have closed their eyes, ears and mouth.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Magnesium plays a vital role in our health. Earlier we could get sufficient dosing of calcium-magnesium and other mineral matrix. No more. Our soils are so depleted in vital minerals that depending solely on vegetables and fruits as source for calcium-magnesium will not work. Hence, some supplementation is required.

Higher antioxidant and lower cadmium concentration in organic foods... [Br J Nutr. 2014] - PubMed - NCBI

Higher antioxidant and lower cadmium concentration in organic foods... [Br J Nutr. 2014] - PubMed - NCBI | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
PubMed comprises more than 23 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

A group of researchers carried out meta-analyses based on 343 peer-reviewed publications that indicate statistically significant and meaningful differences in composition between organic and non-organic crops/crop-based foods. Once again we have hard evidences that organic foods are superior. There are two problems with conventional foods: lower nutritive content and pesticide residue. Most people believe that pesticide residue is minuscule but this is a wrong notion. A human being eats 3-4 meals a day, roughly 1100+ meals annually. That causes slow but sure bioaccumulation of poisons in the body. On the other hand, organic foods are largely free of pesticides and are more nutritious, more tasty. With the introduction of radical farming methods [SCI, remineralisation, use of FMY, compost], organic farmers are setting world record in yields.

The Clinical Impact of Vitamin C: My Personal Experiences as a Physician

The Clinical Impact of Vitamin C: My Personal Experiences as a Physician | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Is the healing power of Vitamin C too good to be true? Can this inexpensive and convenient vitamin improve and heal the toughest of ailments?
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Miracles of Vitamin C. Clinical observations:  "Without exception, seriously ill patients, often with such diseases as Parkinson's, ALS, Alzheimer's, MS, and atherosclerosis, almost always had extensive dental toxicity in the form of root canal-treated teeth, infected dental implants, mercury amalgams, extensive cavitational osteonecrosis, and/or advanced periodontal disease. Each of these individuals had anywhere from three to five sessions of extensive dental work, typically involving a great deal of dental surgery along with the inevitable exposure to the toxins associated with anaerobic dental infections and the inescapable assimilation of some mercury vapor if amalgams were being removed. However, all of these patients received 50-gram (50,000 mg) infusions of vitamin C administered continuously before, during, and following the dental sessions. In patients with diseases that I had been led to believe could not really be improved upon, dramatic clinical improvement was routinely apparent immediately following the dental sessions.

Coconut Oil Benefits: The Incredible Power of Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil Benefits: The Incredible Power of Coconut Oil | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
People worldwide are now realizing the numerous coconut oil benefits.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

The story begins like this: "In the 1960’s, food manufacturers wanted consumers to buy their margarines and hydrogenated oils. To do that, they had to “discredit” the products people had always used in their homes to prepare their food." Sound familiar? This is how food multinational corporations, chiefly US and EU based, systematically demonised our traditional foods and introduced completely useless and unhealthy foods. Coconut oil was one among many natural oils thoroughly demonised using spurious research. People fell for the lie and as a result the main killers in India are: cancers, diabetes, CVD and steep rise in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. The good news is that people themselves realised the folly and switched to traditional oils by the eighties.

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Eat for health, longevity and sustainable eco-system. Although this article focuses mainly on health. it does touch upon the issue of environmental management. This is a huge issue: how we eat affects our environment. Food production methods directly affect land, water, biodiversity [of seeds and pests]. Even within the generic term "organic" there are significant variations in the way natural systems are managed. Therefore, before planners think of land, water, forests, biodiversity conservation and management, the should first give primacy to the way we produce food. Fortunately, this realisation is dawning upon planners but, in general, they are still influenced by destructive corporate agenda.

Vitamin C - A cure for Ebola

Vitamin C - A cure for Ebola | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it

If there were a drug that worked on Ebola you should use it. There isn't. There is only vitamin C.


Here are the facts about vitamin C and Ebola. 

1. Taking a gram or so of day of vitamin C won't protect you against anything except acute scurvy; it doesn't matter whether the vitamin is liposomal, nano-particles, or even gold-plated. Beware of websites, companies, and Youtube clips making wild and unsubstantiated claims about the efficacy of vitamin C. 

2. Clinical reports suggest that taking vitamin C almost to bowel tolerance every day (in divided doses) will help to protect you against all viruses. Reports by independent physicians have been consistent for decades.


However, the doctors also stipulated most emphatically that the dose and the way you take it must be right - or it will not work. There is no direct placebo controlled "evidence" that massive doses of vitamin C will work on Ebola, and nobody would volunteer to take part in that study.


But massive doses are reported to have helped against every virus it has been pitched against. This includes Polio, Dengue and AIDS, and it even makes vaccination work better...


Via Sepp Hasslberger

Vitamin C, taken at the correct dose level, kills virus. That has been the main problem with  C Vitamin for therapeutic uses. This article clarifies that.

The message: Ebola is curable as well.
