“ Nigella sativa seeds have very little aroma but are carminative, meaning they tend to aid digestion and relieve gases in the stomach and intestines. They aid peristalsis and elimination. The essential oil of black cumin is antimicrobial and help to rid the intestines of worms.”
Nigella sativa is one the most revered medicinal seeds in history.
The best seeds come from Egypt where they grow under almost perfect conditions in oases where they are watered until the seed pods form. Black cumin seeds were found in the tomb of Tutankhamun. Though black cumin seeds are mentioned in the Bible as well as in the words of the Prophet Mohammed, they were not carefully researched until about forty years ago. Since this time, more than 200 studies have been conducted in universities.
“ Say someone came up to you selling a dietary supplement—a pill that you take once a day—that could boost your energy, improve your body’s ability to repair its DNA, and keep you healthier as you get older. It might sound like a scam, or more likely just another in a sea of confusing, undifferentiated claims that make up the $20 billion dollar supplement industry. But let’s say that someone is MIT’s Lenny Guarente, one of the world’s leading scientists in the field of aging research. And he’s being advised by five Nobel Prize winners and two dozen other top researchers in their fields. You might pay a little more attention.”
From Ozzie Gontang:Laura Fine taught me what it means to have an Attitude of Gratitude. Appreciation has been shared by so many patients who have been part of the Healing Hearts and Lifestyle Change Program at Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine. These gifts have been shared so deeply by my family and friends over the years. Today I am mindful of the love of my family as Kip and I visit Erin & John, Allison & Takaki this Thanksgiving here in Boston.

A place where luxury and design meet sustainability and adventure, all surrounded by lava fields and glacial lakes.Iceland is often dubbed "the land of fire and ice"— about the size of Kentucky, Iceland boasts some of the most starkly juxtaposed landscapes in the world. From black sand beaches to glacier fields to jagged peaks, the lava fields of otherworldly green moss to the countless active geysers, Iceland's landscape is stunning—and that's only the beginning. There's no better place to experience these extremes than the ION Hotel. Consistently awarded for both its design and sustainability, the ION's (slightly) remote location an hour east of Reykjavik makes it the ideal getaway to both relax and explore the country's extremes...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is often caused by accidents that damage the brain. TBI can induce glutamate excitotoxicity and lead to neuronal and glial cell death. In this study, we investigated the mechanism of cell death during the secondary damage caused by TBI in vivo and in vitro, as well as the protective effect of resveratrol (RV).
“ Change the world; we hear those words thrown around quite frequently, and to some, the notion seems incredulous. However, if we take an inner approach, rather than an outer one, and transform our individual selves into adopting the qualities we wish to see in the world, then the task at hand won't seem as daunting. In the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi, "As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world -- that is the myth of the atomic age -- as in being able to remake ourselves." In this article, the Positivity Blog's, Henrik Edberg, addresses Gandhi's top ten fundamentals for changing the world.”

“ Contrary to popular belief, not all meditation techniques produce similar effects of body and mind. Indeed, a recent study by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has demonstrated for the first time that different types of Buddhist meditation - namely the Vajrayana and Theravada styles of meditation - elicit qualitatively different influences on human physiology and behaviour, producing arousal and relaxation responses respectively.”

The search for the most successful way to shed the pounds seems never-ending. Now researchers in China have looked at what impact gut bacteria have on people's weight. They think that changing the type of bacteria found in the gut may be more effective at helping people to shed weight than cutting calories alone. But can it really be as simple as that? Experts warn we shouldn't ditch the cucumber sticks and hot yoga just yet. The latest World Health Organization figures show there were more than 1.4 billion adults aged 20 or older who were overweight in 2008. Of these, 200 million men and nearly 300 million women were obese. Those numbers are rising - they have doubled since 1980. Lab tests in mice found an association between bacteria and obesity, but trials with people are only just getting started. In a clinical trial, published in the journal Microbiology Ecology, scientists in Shanghai studied 93 obese people who started with an average Body Mass Index (BMI) of 32. They fed the volunteers supplements that promoted the growth of certain types of bacteria and reduced the levels of other bacteria in the gut, alongside a balanced diet.
