Earthing - A Healthy Healing Practice

Earthing is a totally new word to me, and I bet, to most of you as well. When I first came across an article about it recently, I was so intrigued that I read it to the last word.

No regrets, however. It's an interesting addition to the vocabulary, as well as to general knowledge.

Dr. Stephen Sinatra, a cardiologist, explains that Earthing, also known as grounding, is a caveman medicine. It means literally walking barefoot on the earth, sand, or grass. Concrete and slate surfaces would be alright, but not asphalt. Ceramic tile surfaces are also okay as long as the tiles are laid on top of concrete or gravel foundations.

Salt Is Bad, Salt Is Good

The headline is rather confusing, isn't it? Salt is both good and bad. How could that be?

Should Saw Palmetto Be The First Option For Prostate Problems?

For most people diagnosed with Benign Prostate Hyperplasia, saw palmetto, indeed, has become the popular choice among the herbal treatments available, due to its proven effectiveness in dramatically reducing the symptoms of BPH.

But if Dr. Jonathan Wright* were to have his way, he'd rather have patients start off with zinc and fatty acids for at least 3 to 4 months. He further suggests that saw palmetto should be resorted to only, if zinc and the essential fatty acids together, were not effective in managing the symptoms of BPH within the time frame given.

Diabetic Kidney Disease Natural Breakthrough Treatment

This is a welcome development for all diabetics whose disease has already reached the stage of renal impairment. This bright hope for types 1 and 2 diabetes sufferers comes in the form of natural healing foods.

In a very recent article I read, researchers have found that a special high fat, low carbohydrate diet, which they labeled as 'ketogenic diet,' may reverse the damage of diabetic kidney failure.
