Nr 231 10 Natural ways to quikly relieve arthritis pain, inflammation, swelling and stiffness

Creaking joints, back pain, and inflammation are, for many people, are just part of everyday life. But why should you have to deal with chronic pain for the rest of your life? Although inflammation, arthritis, and other joint problems may be a common part of aging, you can get these symptoms under control with the right herbs, spices, and compounds.
Here’s what you’ll need in your anti-inflammation diet:

Hot Chili Peppers

Hot chili peppers can stop just about any type of pain you have. They are a natural source of capsaicin, which works as a natural pain reliever and numbs your body’s response to pain. It also fights pain at the source by reducing inflammation.

Black Pepper

Adding a sprinkle of black pepper to your next meal could help you overcome arthritis pain. The important compound in black pepper is piperin, which has been demonstrated to reduce arthritis pain.


If you have chronic joint pain, glucosamine may be one of the most important supplements you can take. This compound is found naturally in your body, living primarily in connective tissue. Supplementing your diet with glucosamine can minimize arthritis pain, which is why this compound is included in many arthritis pain relief blends for both animals and humans.

Coriander Seeds

Although coriander seeds have an extremely strong taste, learning to love the taste of coriander may help you with joint pain. Whether you use ground seeds in your food or to make tea, coriander seeds can minimize the swelling caused by joint disorders.


Turmeric is one of the most trusted pain remedies in the world, and it has many anti-inflammatory properties that make it a natural choice for swelling and arthritis pain. Some people choose to supplement their diet with turmeric, while others start and end their days with turmeric tea.


If the worst part of your pain is back pain, boswellia may be the best natural remedy to try. It is especially effective at reducing inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis.


For thousands of years, ginger has been used to reduce inflammation and relieve the pain caused by aching joints. Ginger root can be chewed, put in food, or made into tea for best results.

Type II Collagen

Collagen is one of the most important parts of your arthritis pain regimen. Type II collagen creates half of the protein in cartilage and is the main chemical and articular cartilage.


Cinnamon works the same way as many other herbs on this list. It numbs the body’s response to pain while minimizing swelling.

CMO (Cetyl myristoleate)

Cmo is a fatty acid that scientists believe to be beneficial for joint issues and diseases. It has anti-inflammatory properties, so regular supplementation can ease joint swelling and minimize pain. It also functions as a lubricant for your joints and muscles.

Nr 228 Grapefruit Mixed With Prescription Drugs Can Be Deadly

Refreshing and delicious grapefruit is rich in phyto-nutrients like lycopene, vitamin A, and beta-carotene. The fruit is well known as “fruit from the paradise“ for its unique health-promoting as well as disease preventing properties especially among the health-conscious, fitness enthusiasts. But, recent studies have shown that in over 85 drug interactions with grapefruit – 43 of them can be serious. Prescription drugs can interact with grapefruit – it doesn’t matter if it’s fresh, frozen or juice. They can all cause problems.  This grapefruit – prescription drugs interaction can happen with drugs which are used every day by a lot of people: medications for high cholesterol, high blood pressure or fight cancer. 

This grapefruit – medications problem is known for almost 20 years now, but some people still don’t think is dangerous for them and their health. But, the effects of mixing these two things can be really serious sometimes, including death. Dr. David Bailey, pharmacologist at the Canadian Clinic, says the number of prescription drugs which can cause some serious adverse reactions is increasing day by day. 

For example, if you drink 1 tablet of some prescriptive medications with a glass of grapefruit is the same as taking 20 tablets with a glass of water. Or in other word you can call it unwanted overdosing. A lot of these prescription drugs are incompatible, such as: antibiotics, calcium channel blockers used to treat high blood pressure and some cholesterol-lowering medications.

The most vulnerable group to this deadly combination are people older than 45, because they are the biggest buyers of grapefruit and prescription drugs. You should also know this very important information that except all sources of grapefruit (fresh, juice, frozen), other fruits that come from the same family such as: Seville oranges, limes and pomelos can’t be mixed with certain medications too. 

Some doctors also say that toxic interaction between grapefruit and prescription medications can happen even if someone drinks or eats grapefruit hours before taking the medication. Even though he ate the grapefruit for breakfast and took the medication for dinner, it can still cause some serious problems. 

Nr 227 How To Starve Cancer To Death By Removing This One Thing From Your Diet

Cancer is nothing to mess around with, but you should know that getting rid of this one thing will cut your chances of getting cancer.

Sugar is cancer’s fuel!

It’s true that sugar feeds every cell in our body even cancer cells.
Dr. Otto Wartburg and other health experts have long warned that sugar feeds cancer. Actually, they have been doing this since the 1920s. However, many doctors do not tell their patients that eating processed foods loaded with sugar makes it more difficult for their body to fight cancer.
Of the 4 million cancer patients being treated in America today, hardly any are offered any scientifically guided nutrition therapy beyond being told to “just eat good foods.” Most patients I work with arrive with a complete lack of nutritional advice. I believe many cancer patients would have a major improvement in their outcome if they controlled the supply of cancer’s preferred fuel, glucose. By slowing the cancer’s growth, patients allow their immune systems and medical debulking therapies — chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to reduce the bulk of the tumor mass — to catch up to the disease. Controlling one’s blood-glucose levels through diet, supplements, exercise, meditation and prescription drugs when necessary can be one of the most crucial components to a cancer recovery program. The sound bite — sugar feeds cancer — is simple. The explanation is a little more complex.
The 1931 Nobel laureate in medicine, German Otto Warburg, Ph.D., first discovered that cancer cells have a fundamentally different energy metabolism compared to healthy cells. The crux of his Nobel thesis was that malignant tumors frequently exhibit an increase in anaerobic glycolysis — a process whereby glucose is used as a fuel by cancer cells with lactic acid as an anaerobic byproduct — compared to normal tissues.
The large amount of lactic acid produced by this fermentation of glucose from cancer cells is then transported to the liver. This conversion of glucose to lactate generates a lower, more acidic pH in cancerous tissues as well as overall physical fatigue from lactic acid buildup.2,3 Thus, larger tumors tend to exhibit a more acidic pH.4
Hence, cancer therapies should encompass regulating blood-glucose levels via diet, supplements, non-oral solutions for cachectic patients who lose their appetite, medication, exercise, gradual weight loss and stress reduction. Professional guidance and patient self-discipline are crucial at this point in the cancer process.
The quest is not to eliminate sugars or carbohydrates from the diet but rather to control blood glucose within a narrow range to help starve the cancer and bolster immune function.

Nr 226 5 Health Based Supplements to Build Muscles and 5 High Protein Foods You Can Eat to Build Muscle

1. Vitamine D :
Almost every cell in our body has a vitamin D receptor. Without enough vitamin D in the body, calcium cannot be absorbed. Calcium is essential for signaling between brain cells and also in the development of bones and teeth. Low levels of vitamin D may be associated with increased risk of cancer, low levels of immunity, increased inflammation, higher blood pressure, and the loss of muscle mass and strength.

2. Green stuff/Antioxidants :

Taking an antioxidant supplement can assist the body in ridding itself of free radicals.  Free radicals are formed through natural human physiological processes as well as from the environment. They may be the result of diet, stress, smoking, alcohol, exercise, inflammation, drugs, or exposure to sunlight and air pollutants. Free radicals are also produced every time you breathe. While many types of free radicals can be formed, the most common in aerobic (oxygen breathing) organisms are oxygen-free radicals, often referred to as Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS).
Antioxidants can help the body deal with oxidative stress and also reduce the number of free radicals. This may help promote overall health and also aid in recovery. There are thousands of different substances that classify themselves as antioxidants.  The most familiar ones are vitamin C, beta-carotene, vitamin E, coenzyme Q10, flavonoids and polyphenols, alongside many more. 

3. Probiotics :

For your stomach to work properly it needs to have healthy bacteria. Probiotics help move food through your body. They help with irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, infectious diarrhea, and antibiotic-related diarrhea. Probiotics also assist in things like skin health, prevention of allergies and colds, oral health, and urinary and vaginal health.  Probiotics have been found to enhance synthesis of B vitamins and improve calcium absorption, and to keep balance of intestinal microflora.
4. Omega 3 :
Omega-3s help with anti-inflammation, improve brain health, lower blood triglycerides, enhance the immune system, lower the risk of chronic diseases, speed recovery, and influence all sorts of hormonal activity. They can also aid reduction of body fat and build muscle.
Fish oil is high in EPA and DHA. Fish oil is preferred by the body because it is simply mainlined into the system without needing to be converted. ALA (which is found in plants) can be converted into EPA and DHA. Therefore plant sources can be an effective source of Omega-3 as well.

5. Magnesium :
Over 300 reactions in the body rely on magnesium. Magnesium is needed to 
synthesize proteins, DNA and RNA. Magnesium plays a role in our metabolism, 
and cells use magnesium to transport calcium and potassium ions across cell walls. 
Maintaining healthy magnesium levels is important 
to critical processes such as nerve function, muscle contraction, and healthy bones. 
Magnesium can help you cope with stress and empower you to get a better night’s sleep.

5 High Protein Foods You Can Eat to Build Muscle

daily basis. Add them to your smoothies, throw them on top of cereal, or 
sprinkle them over a healthy salad for an added punch of protein.

3. Green Peas

As Livestrong says, vegetables are a low‐calorie food, so it’s difficult to rely 
on them as your primary protein source while you’re trying to get bigger. 
However, when it comes to choosing the best veggies to optimize 
protein‐intake, peas should be your go‐to.

Green peas pack a whopping 8 grams of protein per cup, according to 
Fitness Magazine’s research on surprisingly high‐protein foods
They’re also a nutrition powerhouse, says WebMD, loaded with fiber

of any protein‐filled diet, vegan or otherwise. Surprising as it may be, 
lentils contain 18 grams of protein per cup. 
Cited by Men’s Fitness as a top muscle-building food, lentils are 
also an easy way to get your carb fix with nearly 40 grams of protein 
per cup.

Nr 225 1,000-year-old onion and garlic eye remedy kills MRSA

A 1,000-year-old treatment for eye infections could hold the key to killing antibiotic-resistant superbugs, experts have said.
Scientists recreated a 9th Century Anglo-Saxon remedy using onion, garlic and part of a cow's stomach.
They were "astonished" to find it almost completely wiped out methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, otherwise known as MRSA.
Their findings will be presented at a national microbiology conference.
The remedy was found in Bald's Leechbook - an old English manuscript containing instructions on various treatments held in the British Library.
Anglo-Saxon expert Dr Christina Lee, from the University of Nottingham, translated the recipe for an "eye salve", which includes garlic, onion or leeks, wine and cow bile.
Experts from the university's microbiology team recreated the remedy and then tested it on large cultures of MRSA.


Tom Feilden, science editor Today Programme
The leechbook is one of the earliest examples of what might loosely be called a medical textbook
It seems Anglo-Saxon physicians may actually have practised something pretty close to the modern scientific method, with its emphasis on observation and experimentation.
Bald's Leechbook could hold some important lessons for our modern day battle with anti-microbial resistance.

In each case, they tested the individual ingredients against the bacteria, as well as the remedy and a control solution.
They found the remedy killed up to 90% of MRSA bacteria and believe it is the effect of the recipe rather than one single ingredient.
Dr Freya Harrison said the team thought the eye salve might show a "small amount of antibiotic activity".
"But we were absolutely blown away by just how effective the combination of ingredients was," she said.
Dr Lee said there are many similar medieval books with treatments for what appear to be bacterial infections.
She said this could suggest people were carrying out detailed scientific studies centuries before bacteria were discovered.
The team's findings will be presented at the Annual Conference of the Society for General Microbiology, in Birmingham.
Equal amounts of garlic and another allium (onion or leek), finely chopped and crushed in a mortar for two minutes.
Add 25ml (0.87 fl oz) of English wine - taken from a historic vineyard near Glastonbury.
Dissolve bovine salts in distilled water, add and then keep chilled for nine days at 4C.

Nr224 How to Detect Kidney Failure on Time?

As many serious health conditions are detected in some delayed stage when the chances of effective treatment are quite smaller, it is really important to pay attention to the signals our body sends.
Taking into consideration the fact that they are responsible for many vital functions in our body, it is of utmost importance to take care of your kidneys. They support the elimination of waste from the body, regulate the production of red blood cells, secrete hormones that regulate the blood pressure levels, and help in the production of one form of vitamin D, nutrient which is crucial for the bones. In addition, they help the blood to keep in balance the concentration of minerals, including potassium, sodium, and phosphorus. Diseases of the kidneys are often detected very late because we simply fail in recognizing the signals our body sends. However, in case you notice some of the following symptoms, consult your doctor right away!
  1. Changes in the Urinekidney failure
First sign of kidney disease is the change in the amount of urine secreted on daily basis.  Frequent urination is common sign as well. Don’t ignore the following signals:
  • Frequent urination during night
  • Darker urine than usual
  • Foamy or bloody urine
  • Constant pressure in the bladder
  • Pain or tingling while urinating
  1. Swollen Hands and Feet
Flushing out waste and excess liquids from the body is the major function of the kidneys. One of the signs that indicate some disorder in this function is the buildup of liquids in the body, which in turn causes swelling in the hands, feet, and ankles. Moreover, when you press the skin for couple of seconds, a small home forms and it disappears very quickly.
  1. Languor and Dizziness
When the kidneys fail in performing their function, you are very likely to feel tired and lethargic. Anemia and accumulation of waste in the body are the main reason for this symptom. Healthy kidneys secrete the hormone erythropoietin, which is responsible for the production of red blood cells. Damaged kidneys are not able to secrete this hormone which results in lack of red blood cells. In addition, damaged kidneys make it harder for the body to get rid of toxins and waste, which in turn causes loss of appetite and lack of energy. This is why anemic people feel dizzy, due to the lack of oxygen in the brain.
  1. Unexplained Pain in the Back
Unexplained pain in the back or the stomach can be a symptom of undiagnosed kidney disease or kidney infection. When your kidneys are not functioning properly, you are likely to feel pain, torpor, and accumulation of liquids in the joints. Kidney stones can cause pain in the lower part of the back. Polycystic kidney disease, type of genetic disorder is manifested by excess of liquid in the kidneys, which can result in pain in the back, hip, or stomach. If you feel cramps that start from the lower part of the back to the mucus, consult your doctor immediately.
  1. Rash and Itchiness
Sudden rash, irritation and itchiness can appear as symptoms of certain kidney diseases. Improper function of the kidneys causes accumulation of waste and toxins in the body, which in turn results in skin issues. Another sign of improper function of the kidneys is the imbalance of calcium and phosphorus in the blood which is basically the cause for the itchiness. Consult your doctor if your healthy skin starts to itch.
  1. Ammoniac Breath
Kidney diseases can cause sort of metal taste in the mouth or ammoniac breath. This happens because the improper function of the kidneys causes increased concentration of urea in the blood, which dissolves in ammoniac in the bile. Consequently, this leads to bad breath, known as ammoniac breath. Moreover, it can cause “metal” taste in the mouth that makes the food taste much differently.
  1. Sickness and Vomiting
Sickness, vomiting, and loss of appetite are quite common symptoms of kidney failure. In fact, when the kidneys are unable to filter the harmful toxins from the blood, accumulation of nitrogen and urea in the bloodstream builds up. This stimulates the gastrointestinal mycosis, leading to sickness and vomiting. If you feel sick even after taking some medications, consult your doctors before the condition worsens.
  1. Constant Feeling of Cold
This is yet another symptom of anemia, condition that causes kidney failure. You may feel unexplained cold or tingling, even when you stay in warm rooms. Consult your doctor if you feel cold, dizzy, and weak.
  1. Lack of Air
Lack of air is an indicator that there is something wrong with your kidneys function, as improper function of the kidneys leads to accumulation of liquids in the lungs.  Shortness of breath can occur even in cases of anemia, one of the reasons for kidney failure. In addition, if the kidneys fail to filter the potassium in the blood and it tends to accumulate, you are likely to experience disorder in the heart beat.
