Have you ever wondered what the Doctor of the future is going to be like? What about the future of medicine? Here’s what a very wise person had to say about it… The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease. – Thomas Edison The more I think about it, the more I realize that the common medicine used today is not “Traditional” by any means. I urge you to study and understand the importance of natural medicine, the only “traditional” medicine that allows your body to heal without harmful side effects. The more I study nutrition, the more I realize that you can heal your body with herbs, spices, and the healthy whole foods you can...

Causes and Treatment of Cold Sores

Posted by on Jan 24, 2011 in Natural Solutions | 1 comment

Cold sores are small sores that appear on the lips, mouth, or nose. The sores can be painful and usually last a few days. What causes Cold Sores Cold Sores are caused by an Autoimmune problem, which is not the same thing as a viral infection. Cold Sores can sometimes be a reaction to a weak immune system, stress, or even certain types of foods such as chocolate, citrus, or wheat. Correct Diagnosis? A lot of people (including WebMd!) confuse Oral Herpes with Cold Sores – which are two very different things. It is important that you get the correct diagnosis because cold sores will not respond to medicine meant to aide herpes. Below is a video by Dr. Mercola about Cold Sores and Herpes – and how to naturally treat them. Feel free to follow us, however you like: Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest Feel free...

I’ve listed some some easy ways you can naturally treat your dry skin, and if you have cracked or dry skin…please act sooner rather than later. Lather up Dry skin can be easily relieved by lotion or aloe vera gel (known fact, right? Read on…). Lotion is an immediate relief to dry skin, but it doesn’t necessarily resolve the underlying issue. It’s important to find a lotion that is all natural and paraben-free. The only way to know if your lotion of choice is really safe is to read the labels. Stay Hydrated A sign of dehydration is dry skin, so be sure to...

Cure for the Common Cold

Posted by on Nov 18, 2010 in Natural Solutions, Nutrition | Comments Off on Cure for the Common Cold

It has been said that there is no cure for the common cold.  Unfortunately,  pharmaceutical companies make too much money keeping you sick, and curing the problem isn’t a profitable business. Luckily, there is a cure for the common cold. I have noticed that when people start to feel like they are getting a cold, they will increase their Vitamin C and Antioxidant levels to boost their immune system. Though their immune system may be weakened and needs the boost of strength, it doesn’t necessarily resolve the problem. Vitamin D Deficiency linked to Illness During the Winter months, many of us suffer with the common cold. Also during the Winter months, we have a decrease in sun exposure, which causes us to become Vitamin D deficient. According to Archives of Internal Medicine, studies have shown that being Vitamin D deficient has been linked...
