Chocolate as Medicine

This article is written for Lotus Blossom Clinic, we provide acupuncture, massage, Reike, and food healing consultations.

TRUE CONFESSIONS:    Six years ago I became a confirmed Chocoholic.  It happened when I began to grasp the medicinal scope of this heavenly substance.  And when my neck inflammation “melted” after 30 years of whip-lash injury suffering ….well I was “in” with Chocolate.  Who knew?   In its raw and powerful form, Chocolate is a Natural Medicine from Central & South America, and its use has been documented for thousands of years.   Modern […]

Do you know what really killed Robin Williams back in 2014?  Williams’ autopsy included an analysis of his brain, and what they discovered was tragic.   He had Lewey Body Dementia.   This disease is similar to Alzheimer’s but with other outward characteristics more like Parkinsons such as muscle twitches.  At night, his muscles were fully activated (and working) even during dream time.  Sleep disturbances are common with this disease.  Many brain processes were not working well in this man, which helps to understand why he had his own bedroom, separate from his wife.

It is relatively easy to create a healthy heart…why doesn’t everyone do it?   Of course, there are many reasons, one being this:  For years we’ve had so much flat-out wrong advice from the food industry, magazines, the government, and well-intentioned doctors that it is no wonder people are confused.   I’m here to clear all that up.  Wish me luck!

Here’s some of the “gold” right up front.  The demonized “Saturated Fats” are what nature WANTS us to consume, and what the vegetable oil industry has been touting as “heart-healthy vegetable […]

o-GUT-BACTERIA-facebookPart 1:  What’s Germinating in Your Gut?

The New Frontier in Medicine is the trillions of tiny microbes in our guts which determine everything from one’s propensity to gain and hold weight to how our brains function.  We hear and see evidence of this New Frontier all around us as science gains understanding of these tiny creatures and their direct links to our health.

 

In truth, we are more bacteria than we are human.  And they inhabit more than just our gut, but for our purposes now, we’ll stick with the gut.   And, […]

“In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.”

—Galileo Galilei, 1564-1642

 

Suzanne Somers was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001.  She understood that she had TIME to research and to determine her course of treatment because cancer does not kill overnight.  As she began to study the situation, she was horrified with conventional cancer treatment’s lack of success with chemotherapy.  For example, according to her research, Testicular Cancer, […]

How Ebola’s Most Lethal Aspect Works And What’s the Rest of the Story?

How Ebola’s Most Lethal Aspect Works
And What’s the Rest of the Story?
“As noted by (renowned viral expert) Dr. Robert Rowen, Ebola hijacks your immune system and suppresses it. Once your immune system realizes the virus is there, it launches a cytokine storm, and it is this cytokine storm that leads to massive tissue destruction and capillary leakage.” – Dr. Mercola’s article published on 11-4-14
Sensationalism and Fear abound in the news media about this potentially-deadly disease. And, it’s time for a dose of Natural Medicine and Sanity on this topic, don’t you think? First of all, here are some of […]

Prostate Cancer related to Fried Foods

By |October 2nd, 2014|Cancer, Chocolate, Food as Medicine|

Deep-fried foods are now linked
…. to prostate cancer.

Past research has linked deep-fried foods to breast, lung, pancreatic, neck,and esophageal cancers. Now we can add one more to the list. Researchers, from the Public Health Sciences Division of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, write about their findings in the 17 January 2013 online issue of The Prostate.

How much is too much?
According to Janet L. Stanford, Co-director of the Hutchinson Center’s Program in Prostate Cancer Research: “Consuming fried foods more than once a week puts you in the higher risk category.” To me this sounds like you should […]
