(editor's note: Traditional Eastern medicine has long used black pepper for various maladies. A new study reveals how this popular spice can actually block the formation of new fat cells!
In time, the science of light and sound will advance so that we can update our medical centers, similar to those used on our Healing Ships.
Awakening within us all is the ability to completely heal ourselves.
As our bodies evolve from carbon-based to a crystalline-based structure, we must all learn how to properly nourish and treat our physical body.
Through this "Natural Remedies" segment I hope to introduce you to methods of healing you may not have tried, as well as building your knowledge base so you can help others.

Unmasking Black Pepper's Secrets as a Fat Fighter
Despite that long medicinal history, scientists know little about how piperine (the pungent-tasting substance that gives black pepper its characteristic taste) works on the innermost molecular level. The scientists set out to get that information about piperine's anti-fat effects.
Their laboratory studies and computer models found that piperine interferes with the activity of genes that control the formation of new fat cells. In doing so, piperine may also set off a metabolic chain reaction that helps keep fat in check in other ways. The group suggests that the finding may lead to wider use of piperine or black-pepper extracts in fighting obesity and related diseases.
