4 Powerful Ancient Herbs for Boosting Your Brain Power and Rebuilding Neuronal Connections

20th April 2016

The quality of your life is in large part a function of the health of your brain. From the more basic (but no less astounding) operations of maintaining the intricate balance of the biological network that is your body to the more sophisticated functions of perception, awareness, imagination and thought, the brain is central to your experience—and quality—of life.

And yet, life in our modern societies seems to be working, in many ways, against brain health. Powerful neurotoxins are contained in our food and emitted as gases from the myriad of synthetic materials used in houses, cars, clothes and so on. The bright, artificial lights of computer screens and cellphones alter delicate circadian neurotransmitter balances by overstimulating our optic nerves after dark. Our foods have often times been grown in devitalized soils and then further processed and packaged, robbing our bodies of essential vitamins and minerals—literally the fuel for our brains.

Liquefied Seeds – Perfect Nutrition, Perfect Medicine

The fact is the seed is the source of all life.

The Budwig Center says, “Seeds may be tiny, but they’re packed with nutrients like protein, fiber, iron, vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. They truly provide ‘energy bursting with life’.”

Dr. Johanna Budwig helped cancer patients that were very weak and in advanced stages of cancer by feeding them a mixture of freshly ground flaxseeds and raw, pure honey, every two hours. She understood the power of seed nutrition.

Now, this idea has taken flight and has evolved into a revolutionary approach to nutrition, medicine and healing — consuming seeds in liquid form. We are talking about rocket fuel nutrition so powerful and concentrated it will help to lift people out of the deepest pathologies.

The Magic Healing Power of Mushrooms

27th March 2016

By Dr Joseph Mercola

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

There is, perhaps, no other food source surrounded by such magic and mystery as mushrooms. In the videos embedded below, leading mycologist Paul Stamets offers a glimpse into some of the roles medicinal mushrooms play in health, such as activating your immune system, naturally fight flu viruses and other diseases, and potentially fighting cancer. Mushrooms may even help to save our environment by restoring habitat that’s been devastated by pollution, and creating sustainable fuel.

Mushrooms are actually the fruit of mycelium, which is a “filamentous, cobweb-like cellular network.” As Stamets explained:The cobwebby mycelium exudes enormous suites of enzymes, antimicrobial agents, antiviral compounds, as it grows in the ground beneath our feet and in the forests around us. Mycelium is the cellular foundation of our food webs, creating the rich soils so necessary for life.

The Culmination of Culinary Cannabis Creations

26th March 2016

As American culture progresses, and digresses simultaneously, one issue has proven its resilience against that pesky Federal Government meddling in our affairs; and that issue is one of marijuana legalization. Despite the government’s best efforts to misinform, misguide and outright lie to the public, the slowly awakening American people have made their intentions known when discussing cannabis.

Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form, four states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for recreational use, and in Alaska, adults 21 and older can now transport, buy or possess up to an ounce of marijuana and six plants. With this wonderful show of Federal defiance comes more accessibility and freedom for those who might not have had easy access to the plant in the past. With that freedom has come an explosion of culinary cannabis creations.

Ouabain: Nature’s Forgotten Remedy for Heart Health

21st March 2016

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Could it be, that the best treatment for heart failure and heart attacks was already discovered 100 years ago, but nowadays even alternative medicine has forgotten about it?

For many decades now, heart-related problems have been among the top killers of human life. Worldwide, thousands of people die of heart problems every day [1]. Billions have been spent on treatments and research but the mortality rate for heart disease is similar to that of cancer. Overall, half of the patients die within just 4 years, the current standard medication for heart failure is just 3–4 percent more effective than a placebo, and a German study shows the efficiency of newly invented medications has dropped significantly over the last 30 years [2].

Could it be that a comeback of the forgotten natural remedy, Ouabain, could provide the answer?

It is a strongly established fact; plenty of evidence shows the anti-cancer properties of certain compounds in fruits. Specifically, fruits such as pineapple, apple, avocado, lemon, banana, grapes, and tomato have been found to be the most effective in preventing and eliminating cancer cells. And, as science has demonstrated, there are plenty more.

The Benefits of Aloe Vera for Your Heart

By Dr. Edward Group

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

For thousands of years, people from around the world have used aloe vera for everything from soothing sunburn to oral wounds. In recent years, research has suggested that the plant may boast even more health benefits thanks to the properties and compounds found in its leaves. A South Korean study reports that aloe vera supports the immune system. [1] Another study has indicated that aloe vera can fight harmful organisms in the digestive tract. [2]

Aloe vera is great for flushing out toxins and waste from the digestive tract [3], which in turn helps the body to absorb nutrients more effectively. This also supports circulation and gets more oxygen-rich blood to cells throughout the body. Today, we’ll look at how aloe vera supports heart health.

Fruits and Vegetables Reaching an Alarming State of Nutrient Depletion

By Marco Torres

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

What if our food has been getting less and less nutritious? What if modern intensive farming methods — many of which solved malnutrition problems when they were first introduced — have affected the mineral and vitamin content of what we eat? Could having a constant supply of varied produce and introducing genetically modified foods be compromising nature’s goodness?

Whether it be vegan, low carb, paleo, or any other diet, the quest for the healthiest method of eating shows no sign of abating, yet all have considerable controversy. We know more than ever about what food does to the body and the importance of antioxidants, healthy fats and a low glycaemic index.

Junk Food Eating Generations Can Pass Metabolic Disorders To Their Children

By Mae Chan

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

The saying “you are what your parents eat,” is becoming more relevant by the day.

Less than two years ago, scientists officially linked processed foods to autoimmune disease, and the consequences may ripple to future generations. According to a recent study published in journal Science, just one junk food-eating generation can pass on the metabolic disorders it gains from an unhealthy diet to the next.

Medical researchers have before shown a link between a father’s weight and diet at the time of conception and an increased risk of diabetes in his offspring. In research conducted on mice, a team from the Chinese Academy of Sciences found that unhealthy eating behaviours were recorded in a tiny molecule that could then be transmitted through sperm to the embryo.
