The main difference between natural healing remedies and those in the Physician’s Desk Reference is the fact that the Physician’s Desk Reference has double blind research and studies listing which dosages cause which side effects. Many herbal remedies do not have this standard. Fortunately, most herbal remedies have side effects that are not as severe as those found in the Physician’s Desk Reference. It is not clear whether some herbs are able to produce the placebo effect. There are many natural healing remedies on the market today. There is a growing interest in everything, from homeopathic remedies for arthritis to finding qualified herbalists in a specific area. People want to know what the best detoxification program is and what supplements are best for certain conditions.
They also want to know what nutrients and minerals are best for treating them. Pine tar soap is a good option for infants with eczema. Ask for pine tar soap at your local health food shop.

Celery seeds are a great treatment for gout. These seeds remove uric acid from your body and can be used to treat gout. Celery seeds are believed to contain twenty anti-inflammatory ingredients. 1 tablespoon celery seeds to 2 cups of water. Drain the seeds and keep the water.

Aspirin can be used to treat dandruff – This remedy was suggested to me by a barber after trying all the dandruff shampoos on the supermarket shelves. Two aspirins can be crushed into the shampoo you normally use to wash your hair. Let it sit for 20 minutes, then rinse your hair. To get rid of aspirin, shampoo your hair with natural shampoo.

Prescription drugs that treat the cause of diseases can sometimes have side effects that outweigh the benefits they are supposed to offer.
Spirulina, or more specifically blue-green alga, is a combination of single-cell organisms that bridge the gap between animals and plants. Its cells photosynthesise, just like plants, and there are no cell walls, just as animals. The first mention of the algae is from a Cortes’ conquistador soldier who describes it as a valuable food source to the Aztec people in pre-16th-century Central America. The algae grew abundantly on Lake Texcoco. This is the location where the Aztecs built Tenochtitlan, their famous capital, on an island in Lake Texcoco. They were defeated and Montezuma’s capital fell to the Spanish in 1521.
The Spanish destroyed the original capital and built Mexico City on the site. The massive city and flood prevention measures made the lake a shadow of its former self, and the spirulina bed of Lake Texococo was wiped out. Thankfully, Sprilulina did not disappear. It is a delicious food that contains 60% protein. It is rich in the essential amino acids, which are vital for cell growth. They are vital because they must be obtained from food, as the body cannot make them. Blue-green algae is low in methionine, and its non-essential companion cysteine. These valuable sulphur compounds are essential for proper digestion.
The lack of vitamin B-12, and its key synergist, Folic acid in vegetarian diets, is a problem. Spirulina is a great source of protein. It also contains a lot of B vitamins, including the vital B-12, which donates oxygen to hemoglobin, and helps eliminate pernicious anemia. However, the B-12 is not easily assimilated by the human body. This is why it is considered useless. This makes it less attractive as a protein source. It was first commercially manufactured in Thailand in 1988 by the Booson Farm in Nonthaburi. This innovative approach has allowed the country to grow to be one of the top spirulina producers in the world. Booson Farm moved to Chaing Mai, where it is now more spacious. It has been proven to be effective against HIV infection in vitro through overseas studies.
It has been shown to protect patients with cancer from the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. It is a powerful antioxidant that has been proven to be a good way to reduce blood fats. 41 diabetic patients were included in a study by a respected Bangkok University. For 8 weeks, the first group of 21 participants received 6gms of daily spirulina for 6 days. The placebo was given to the second group. Researchers found that participants in the control group who had blood sugar readings above 140 mg/dl were able to reduce their blood sugar levels by 31mg/dl over 8 weeks. Their blood sugar levels were no longer considered diabetic.
The study also showed that uric acids levels had decreased. This was unexpected considering that spirulina had been previously thought to increase uric acid. This is great news for people with low blood sugar, which is quite common in vegetarians who eat a lot starchy carbohydrates. It also makes it great news for gout sufferers. Another study, conducted by the Nanjing School of Medicine China, found that Leukemia cells can be inhibited by spirulina consumption.
Overall, spirulina is an excellent food source, being rich in protein and containing all essential amino acids. It also provides adequate B vitamins. It stabilizes blood sugar and is a powerful anti-oxidant as well as an anti-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory agent. It is a healthy food supplement that can be used by both vegetarians and carnivores. It is likely to give you a healthy boost to your wellness by being added to smoothies and daily drinks. It’s easy to do and it’s also very affordable.
