Aging appears to begin between the ages of 27 and 35 when the production of enzymes that dissolve protein begins to diminish. Enzymes are widely recognized for their importance in digesting food. They also break up circulating immune complexes in the blood. Enzymes can act to prevent too much fibrin from being deposited in wounds, fractures and joints. These enzymes also remove necrotic debris and excess fibrin from the blood stream. Immune system regulation can also be accomplished with enzymes. Most of the development of systemic enzyme therapy was carried out in the Far East and Europe. Enzyme therapy is a prime example of a situation in which US medicine is missing the boat due to a lack o of awareness of what the rest of the world is doing and our unwillingness to use therapies not made by “big pharma.” Enzymes can not be patented so they are of little interest to drug companies.

The Stunning Immune Power of Lactoferrin

Lactoferrin is one of the most powerful immune support nutrients known. It is not only vital to your defense against any type of infection; it also helps keep your immune system from overheating with too much inflammation. Lactoferrin is a vital component of breast milk and largely responsible for defending the human race against infection in our most vulnerable members. Bovine lactoferrin is quite similar to human lactoferrin and readily available in colostrum, whey protein, and in a purified form from whey protein. Hundreds of studies show lactoferrin is a potent antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral and parasite killing compound. New information is now showing that lactoferrin is a manager of immune cells, helping to optimize and coordinate their attack on enemies while preventing inappropriate immune system excess. This is a drastic difference from Stone Age medicine that seeks to apply some sort of toxin to a germ to kill it. This is an immune compound with a brain, an active regulator of healthy immunity.

Benzene & Benzene Detoxification

Benzene pollution occurs in the air we breath, in certain food stuffs we eat and in the many personal, cosmetic and health care products we rub on our bodies.  Mother Nature equipped our bodies with the metabolic machinery to detoxify small amounts of benzene and benzol compounds but the problem comes from excessive benzene burdens resulting from prolonged and frequently repeated exposure to these organic chemicals.

Why Are Peppers Good For You?

While the thought of eating chile may make your mouth water, the idea of chiles in your eyes or nose is enough to make you cry–even though it can be good for you. In the West Indies, for example, the pressed juice of chiles is used to treat inflammatory eye disorders, and the water of boiled chile leaves is used as medication for asthma, cough, chest colds and tuberculosis. Because it causes sweating, chile is included in many folk remedies for alleviating fever, and because it kills both germs and pain, a capsaicin-based spray is used by some doctors to combat sore throats. Currently in the United States and Europe, doctors are studying capsaicin, the chemical that makes chile hot, as a way to alleviate symptoms of the head, nose, mouth and respiratory tract. One study at the Schwab Rehabilitation Hospital in Chicago found that a pinch of pepper in baby food helped stroke patients (who are having difficulty swallowing) ingest their food more easily (more…)

While that may seem to be quite the tall order, black cumin (Nigella sativa) does in fact have remarkable healing and health properties that make it one of the most powerful medicinal plants known to man.

Black cumin is a part of the buttercup family and the seeds are dark, thin, and crescent-shaped when whole. The seeds have been used for many centuries in the Middle East, the Mediterranean and India. Today, black cumin seeds are used as a seasoning spice in different cuisines across the world due to their nutty flavor.

The seeds of the black cumin plant contain over 100 chemical compounds, including some yet to be identified. In addition to what is believed to be the primary active ingredient, crystalline nigellone, black cumin seeds contain: thymoquinone, beta sitosterol. myristic acid, palmitic acid, palmitoleic acid, stearic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, arachidonic acid, protein, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, folic acid, calcium, iron, copper, zinc, and phosphorous.
