Settling Seizures by Carolyn Dean MD ND

Andrea Green's picture

I’ve recently had emails from readers and clients about seizures. One health professional had three brain surgeries 30 years ago for epilepsy and is on seizure medication with good results. However he said that a few months ago, after being prescribed mega doses of Vitamin D from his neurologist, he had his first seizure in thirteen years.

I told him that magnesium has an important calming effect on the brain and high doses of Vitamin D can unmask an underlying magnesium deficiency. He also said his last series of seizures 13 years ago happened the day after eating too much ice cream. Ice cream is a high calcium dairy product which can also unmask a magnesium deficiency.

Health Benefits of Artichokes by Organic Facts

Andrea Green's picture

Artichokes are a versatile food, and although some would consider them a vegetable, they are actually an unusual variety of thistle! For nutritional purposes, they are primarily consumed due their associated benefits of protecting against various forms of cancer, bolstering immune system strength, lowering cholesterol, and protect against diseases such as diabetes, artherosclerosis, heart attack, and stroke. Artichokes have also long been famous for detoxifying the body and improving the health of the liver, and aiding in digestive issues like indigestion, constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and diarrhea. Furthermore, this miraculous little thistle can reduce blood pressure, eliminate hangovers, and stimulate urination.

Artichokes are known in their natural form as cardoon, and their scientific classification is Cynara cardunculus, and it is native to the Mediterranean region, which is primarily why artichokes play such a major part of their cuisine on a number of levels. Artichokes can be found throughout Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas, but they are less frequently encountered in Asian nations.

Fermented foods could stimulate bacteria that help with immunity, helping cold sufferers

Sauerkraut, blue cheese and pickles hardly sound like the route to wellbeing. But fermented foods - left to age for anything from a few days to weeks before they're eaten - are the new health craze.

It comes from the U.S. of course, where it's become fashionable to ferment vegetables and drink kombucha - a fizzy, fermented tea drunk for centuries in China.

Now the science appears to back it up. Last week Cambridge University researchers reported that regular consumption of fermented low-fat dairy foods, such as yoghurt, fromage frais and cottage cheese, could reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 25 per cent over 11 years.

Published last week in the journal AIDS Research and Human Retroviruses, researchers at Louisiana State University showed that daily doses of THC, marijuana’s main ingredient, have a number of beneficial effects in animal models of HIV.

In particular, THC given to monkeys over a 17-month period decreased damage to immune tissue of the gut, an important site of HIV infection. The team also found evidence that THC could do this by acting at the gene level.

In a historic and significant moment in American history, last November, Colorado became the first US state to legalize marijuana for recreational use.
