101-year-old woman still drives her 82-year-old car.
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

I rediscovered the secrets of health and longevity: driving an 82 year old car!!

I remember how much effort went into maintaining a pre WW2 car. And it was the same right up until the 1970s. It was far more than maintaining a horse.

Commend this lady. At 101 driving a 82 year old car.

Energy Vampires: Who They Are & How To Ditch Them

I don’t know about you, but 2012 was a year of many changes for me – home, career, relationships, personal goals, diet, and even ideals. And the success of overcoming these barriers would not have
Arun Shrivastava's insight:
Perhaps I also follow several of these recommended steps against the "ENERGY VAMPIRES." Perhaps point #7 is most vital. There is another very important point missing in the list and that is: set aside a few hours entirely to oneself to review your actions and plan your next creative work, adding value to your work in small doses.   Here are seven ways to cope with energy vampires:1. Take a deep breath and let it go! There’s no need to allow their words or actions to linger and take up space in your heart and mind.2. Recognize when their words or actions are unacceptable. Don’t give them permission to leech your energy.3. Keep things light and change the focus. Learn not to react on impulse; instead, go with the flow, and tactfully bring the situation back to neutral ground.4. Remind yourself of the purpose of your bond or connection (e.g., why is this person in your life, how are you associated with them?), and know that you are allowed to walk away.5. Take a step back by putting their words or actions into perspective. Their behavior is a reflection on them, not you.6. Visualize a protective light around you, like an energy shield. This can help you remain energetically neutral without letting their words or actions cut or affect you.7. Affirm your self-worth. You deserve to be surrounded by positive, genuine, and caring people who inspire you to be your very best.

Peer-to-peer health care is a slow idea that will change the world

Peer-to-peer health care is a slow idea that will change the world | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it

Someone recently asked me to name the most exciting innovation in health care today.

 

I think he was hoping for a sexy technology tip, like an app that's catching fire in the expert patient communities I follow.

 

Nope.

 

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the most exciting innovation of the connected health era is … people talking with each other.

 

At the Pew Research Center we call it “peer-to-peer health care” and measure it with national survey data...

Arun Shrivastava's insight:

Why not P2P in healthcare? If one has a health problem, why don't we ask around? Form a group of humanists, experts, independent researchers, naturopaths, homeopaths.....just discuss. When the problem is identified, solution is easy to find. Just ask....it doesn't cost money to ask. I did it and saved my life.

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, August 10, 2013 1:42 PM

The information about the best cures is not coming through medical doctors. They are too beholden to the perks and the pronouncements of the industry that makes its money from sickness.

 

The information comes from others who have researched the same illness out of desperation and have found a solution. It's called p2p or peer-to-peer health care.

Stephanie T Holland's curator insight, August 11, 2013 6:01 AM

Being written about in the mainstrea media ia a pretty exciting development that will bring it into mainstream consciousness.

The Project Gutenberg eBook of A Guide To Health, by Mahatma Gandhi. | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

In this book Gandhi talks of holistic health, our connection with the five elements and simple home remedies for health problems including snake bite, etc. The book was written in 1920, perhaps earlier because Gandhi had a habit of taking notes. His personal experiences are here. It is an interesting read and represents an approach to health during that period. His opposition to vaccination was vehement...see his notes on page 107 [pages are numbered on RHS of the book]

How vitamin C stops the big 'C'

Nearly 30 years after Nobel laureate Linus Pauling famously and controversially suggested that vitamin C supplements can prevent cancer, a team of scientists has shown that in mice at least, vitami...
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

That conclusion led Gao and Dang to suspect that some other mechanism was  involved, such as a protein known to be dependent on free radicals called HIF-1  (hypoxia-induced factor), which was discovered over a decade ago by Hopkins  researcher and co-author Gregg Semenza, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Program in  Vascular Cell Engineering. Indeed, they found that while this protein was  abundant in untreated cancer cells taken from the mice, it disappeared in  vitamin C-treated cells taken from similar animals.

“When a cell lacks oxygen, HIF-1 helps it compensate,” explains Dang. “HIF-1  helps an oxygen-starved cell convert sugar to energy without using oxygen and  also initiates the construction of new blood vessels to bring in a fresh oxygen  supply.”

Some rapidly growing tumors consume enough energy to easily suck out the  available oxygen in their vicinity, making HIF-1 absolutely critical for their  continued survival. But HIF-1 can only operate if it has a supply of free  radicals. Antioxidants remove these free radicals and stop HIF-1, and the tumor,  in its tracks.

The authors confirmed the importance of this “hypoxia protein” by creating  cancer cells with a genetic variant of HIF-1 that did not require free radicals  to be stable. In these cells, antioxidants no longer had any cancer-fighting  power.

How to use turmeric to prevent lethal diseases

How to use turmeric to prevent lethal diseases | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it
Arun Shrivastava's insight:

The typical Himalayan turmeric looks deep yellow or brownish orange or even brownish. It has antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-alzheimer and anti-arthritic effects...essentially preventing the onset of these diseases, among many other properties, too many to list here. It also helps reverse many conditions.

 

The easiest ways to get get the right quantity in your body is to drink turmeric tea or take half a teaspoonful of turmeric to a teaspoonful of honey and lick it. The best is of course freshly ground turmeric which we Indians do in many homes but others find it more convenient to buy packaged turmeric.

 

TURMERIC TEA: Bring four cups of water to boil, add one teaspoonful of turmeric and ground ginger [you can even crush it] and a pinch of rock salt or sea salt, and let it simmer for about 15 minutes. You will be left with 1/2 by volume or 2 cups. The turmeric will turn the water deep brown. Strain it. Add 1/2 small fresh lemon or lime juice [about one teaspoonful]. PLEASE NEVER ADD SUGAR. If at all, use  honey.

 

TURMERIC WITH MILK: To a cup of hot milk, add 1/2 teaspoonful of freshly ground turmeric, add a bit of honey and drink it after evening meal.

 

TREATMENT OF SPRAINS: This is typical Indian solution to treat sprains. If you sprain a joint, typically ankle, use a mix of slaked lime with turmeric, roughly a cup of slaked lime and a few teaspoonfuls of turmeric, add water and make poultice, place it on and around the inflamed area and tie it up loosely with bandage, or even discarded T shirt cut into lengths. This was my favourite treatment.....and spraining my ankle was quite a regular event....and I think this has been in use for centuries. It works.

The Mind Unleashed: Cannabis Cures Cancer and the Government Knows It

The Mind Unleashed: Cannabis Cures Cancer and the Government Knows It | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it

The US Government is well aware Cannabis has medicinal properties. How could they not? It's been used as a medicine for at least the past 10,000 years. Even in America, Cannabis was used as a medicine for over 100 years. It was in over a hundred over the counter medicines for a wide range of reasons.

 

In '72 Richard Nixon wanted a larger budget for his war on drugs. He thought that if he proved Cannabis caused lung cancer like cigarettes do, he would get the support he needed. He gave the Medical College of Virginia 2 years to do a study on the effects of THC on the body.

 

In '74 the study was completed. It turns out, THC when ingested in highly concentrated forms (such as eating Cannabis oil) will attack any mutated cells in your body while strengthening and rejuvenating the healthy cells.

 

They found the PERFECT cure for Cancer. It worked fast, it worked well, it worked on many different forms of Cancer in ALL stages and it had ZERO harmful side effects.

 

When Richard Nixon saw the results of the study he was FURIOUS...

Cancer-Killing Dandelion Tea Receives $157,000 for Further Research

Cancer-Killing Dandelion Tea Receives $157,000 for Further Research | LOCAL HEALTH TRADITIONS | Scoop.it

Continuing research that began in 2009, Siyaram Pandey, a biochemist at the University of Windsor, and his research team  are finding that dandelion root extract is turning out to be a very aggressive natural remedy for cancer cells associated with Leukemia.

 

The extract of dandelion root has been shown to cause chronic monocytic myeloid cells to commit suicide.  Due to this initial success, the team has recently been issued a $157,500 grant (totaling $217,000 overall) to discover how this natural remedy can treat Leukemia altogether.

Could this be because a cheap cure for Malaria would eliminate the market for vaccines from the pharmaceutical industry?
