You can’t watch TV these days without seeing advertisements for pharmaceutical treatments for depression. The current ads offer drugs to take in addition to the drugs you’re already taking that aren’t working. This would be funny if depression wasn’t widespread, incapacitating, and potentially fatal. It would be funnier still if these pharmaceuticals weren’t linked to an increased likelihood of suicidal or homicidal behavior.
Whether you’re looking to recover quickly from a tough workout that caused DOMs (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), trying to heal as fast as possible from an injury, or you suffer from chronic aches and pains, this regimen will reduce muscle soreness and cut healing and recovery time in half (or less).
Hair loss is caused by genetics, hormones, or poor circulation of the scalp (usually all three). Excess dandruff can cause hair loss, but this, too, is a sign of poor scalp circulation.

Clear, clean, vibrant skin is the best visual indicator of overall health. Acne is not just unsightly; it is a sure sign of a body that is undernourished and full of toxins. Though it comes as no surprise, the conventional medical community does not recognize the link between diet or general health and acne, other than a possible link to a few foods.
Canker sores (apthous ulcers), are small, painful sores inside the mouth that are either white or yellow with a red border. Canker sores are often confused with cold sores, but unlike cold sores they are caused by a bacterial infection rather than the herpes virus. Canker sores can be caused by irritation or abrasion of the tongue or mouth tissues from sharp foods, vigorous brushing with rigid toothbrushes, or orthodontia. Swollen lymph nodes and fever may accompany an outbreak.
Your best bet to avoid a hangover is by not drinking, of course, but that’s not what you came here for. The next best step to avoid a hangover is to be healthy. If you eat lots of fresh raw fruits and vegetables, get lots of vitamins and enzymes, don’t have Candida, and don’t have an overly toxified liver, chances are you won’t even get a hangover. Or if you do, it will be mild.
The only way to restore your body to good physical health is by living a healthy lifestyle. Nutrition, detoxification, and exercise are all essential. The human body is miraculous.

Anyone who suffers from constipation has serious diet issues. The best foods to promote regularity and a healthy gastrointestinal tract are raw fresh vegetables and fruit. They contain fiber, and the digestion process of raw vegetables and fruits promotes healthy intestinal flora. Diets high in refined sugar encourage yeast to flourish in the whole body, including the colon. Yeast overgrowth can overrun the beneficial bacteria, causing digestive problems.
Juice one small carrot, one small apple, and one piece of ginger about the size of a thumb. Add four table spoons of apple cider vinegar, and two drops of liquid cayenne pepper extract. Heat to no more than 110 degrees, remove from heat, and add 2 tablespoons of raw unrefined, unpasteurized, unfiltered honey and stir.
If the body is producing too much stomach acid, the body is having trouble digesting food. Neutralizing or decreasing the stomach acid will cause the body to pass partially digested food through the digestive system where it will rot and feed parasites and yeast, causing long-term, serious health repercussions. A study in Holland showed that people using acid suppressing drugs were four times more likely to develop pneumonia when compared to people who did not use those drugs.
To repel fleas, keep your dog smelling like citrus and garlic. To make your own repellnt, put 3 cloves of garlic, the peels from 1 orange and 1 grapefruit, 1 tablespoon of rosemary and 1 pint of water into a blender. Blend until liquefied, and then heat the concoction at a simmer for 20 minutes. Allow it to cool and strain. Put the liquid in a spray bottle and spray your pets before they go outside. During flea season, add sulfur and garlic to your pet’s food for additional protection.
