Nuts are amazing. Their properties and potential dietary uses has spurred intensive scientific investigation for the past few decades (Russo & Siani 2012). Provided there are no allergies present, incorporating nuts into your diet could be a worth while consideration with a potentially big pay-off.

So – Why Go Nuts?

Sometimes, health solutions are simple and effective healthcare naturally tastes great! Tree nuts represent a dense, highly nutritious source of mostly unsaturated fatty acids (predominantly oleic and linoleic acid) and protein. They also contain a plethora of known health promoting components such as antioxidants (e.g. ellagic acid), flavonoids (e.g. catechins), polyphenols, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and many more (Venkatachalam & Sathe 2006). Together, these constituents turn nuts into a nutritional powerhouse.

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.

Noni Leaf Extract Superior To Chemotherapy for Lung Cancer (Preclinical Study)

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Tragically, 1.4 million die from lung cancer each year, with 1.6 million newly diagnosed. Could the humble noni leaf extract offer a more effective cancer treatment than a drug that can cost over 100,000 dollars, and improves lung cancer survival rates by only a few months?

A promising new study published in the journal Food & Function titled, “Morinda citrifolia edible leaf extract enhanced immune response against lung cancer,” has found that an alcohol-based leaf extract of the noni tree (Morinda Citrifolia) was more effective than a commonly used chemotherapy drug in treating lung cancer in an animal model.

In the new study, a team of Malaysian researchers tested the relative effectiveness of the drug erlotinib (trade name Tarceva), a so-called epidemal growth factor receptor inhibitor (EGFR inhibitor), to a noni leaf extract, in lung tumor-induced albino house mice (BALB/c), and found that 21 days of treatment with a 300 mg kg-1 body weight of leaf extract was more effective suppressing lung tumour growth than a 50 mg kg-1 body weight erlotinib treatment.

Can Medical Marijuana Relieve Migraines?

By Christina Lavers

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

While a small minority has long been singing the praises of medical marijuana, until very recently it has been vilified by the mainstream. Portrayed as a dangerous, gateway drug that kills brain cells [1] and causes untold ills, this natural herb is slowly emerging from the cloud of propaganda and being seen in a more accurate light.

In the United States, cannabis has been criminalized at the Federal level by implementation of the Controlled Substances Act. This Act classifies cannabis, a natural herb, as a Schedule 1 drug—this is the strictest classification, on par with heroin, LSD and ecstasy. For a long time this rigid legislation meant that it was virtually impossible to conduct studies on it without breaking the law. Today the climate is slowly shifting and we are gradually seeing changes to some of the legislation that has long stifled research. While not much has changed at a federal level, at a state level legislation is being amended so that medical marijuana is no longer criminalized. Currently in the US, 21 states have legalised marijuana for medical purposes.

7 Sacred Herbs for Activating and Harmonizing the Chakras

By Justin Faerman

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

While the chakras themselves are energetic/etheric in nature, they each have corresponding physical organs, glands and systems in the body that can, and do, have an effect on their functioning. When the associated organ/gland/system is weak or out of balance, the relevant chakra will be under active; and when the associated organ/system is balanced and healthy, the chakra will generally be in harmony.

This interconnectivity of the physical and etheric bodies goes the other way as well—if there is an energetic imbalance in a chakra, for example, as a result of emotional disturbances, then this can also cause the associated physical elements to become weak as well. As such, it is important to not only address physical imbalances with herbs and lifestyle adjustments, but also on an energetic level as well with breathwork, meditation, kriya/tantric yoga, qigong or whatever your preferred flavor of energetic medicine.

Exceptional Botanical Kills 98% of Cancer Cells in Under 24 Hours

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

The same herb frequently eaten as salad in Asia has been shown to destroy cancer cells — without harming healthy tissue. Researchers at the University of Washington have created a compound based on traditional Chinese medicine that is 1,200 times more effective in killing malignant cells than chemotherapy drugs. Combined with iron, the herb selectively targets cancerous cells and has proven to be a powerful tool in combating the disease. Tomikazu Sasaki, senior author of the study and chemistry professor at the University of Washington, describes the compound as “… a special agent planting a bomb inside the [cancer] cell.”

Since traditional chemotherapy is rife with severe side-effects and kills healthy cells, researchers are encouraged by the findings. Standard chemotherapy destroys as many as 1 normal cell for every 5 cancer cells. The compound developed by Sasaki and his team is far more specific, killing 12,000 cancer cells for each healthy cell affected, which minimizes adverse side-effects. Because of this, the effectiveness of the treatment is increased as higher doses can be tolerated.

25 Ways to Use Oregano Essential Oil for Health and Wellness

By Gaye Levy

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

Five years ago, if someone were to mention the use of oregano essential oil for health and wellness purposes I would have looked at them cross-eyed. Although well versed in the benefits of essential oils, for one reason or another, oregano essential oil was nowhere to be found on my radar. Although I grow oregano in my yard and use it in pasta dishes and on pizza, I had never considered it to have healing qualities.

Moving forward in time, as I began to toss out conventional over-the-counter remedies, I discovered that Oregano essential oil has some amazing qualities. Not only that, it is inexpensive and can be effectively used in so many ways that like lavender, it should be called the Swiss army knife of essential oils.

Hemp Can Free Us From Oil, Prevent Deforestation and Cure Cancer – So Why Is It Illegal?

By Marco Torres

Guest Writer for Wake Up World

Hemp is a tall, beautiful and gracious looking annual plant that can reach heights over twelve feet. Although hemp (cannabis sativa) and marijuana (cannabis sativa var. indica) come from a similar species of plant, they are very different and confusion has been caused by deliberate misinformation with far reaching effects on socioeconomics as well as on environmental matters.

The reason hemp is illegal is not because of any negative impact to the environment or human health, but exactly the opposite. It is so environmentally friendly, nutritionally and medicinally beneficial, that it provides too many abundant resources which would make it impossible for powerful corporations to compete.

25 Cancer Stem-Cell Killing Foods That Are Smarter Than Chemo and Radiation

By Sayer Ji

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

A new scientific review has identified 25 of the top foods and herbs which kill cancer stem cells at the root cause of cancer malignancy. 

There are thousands of natural compounds that have been studied with demonstrable anti-cancer activity (check out over 600 on GreenMedInfo’s cancer research database), but only a small subset of these have been proven to target and kill the cancer stem cells which lie at the root of cancer malignancy. Turmeric, for instance, we have featured a number of times for its “smart kill” property of targeting just the heart of cancerous tumors. More recently, ginger has been found in pre-clinical research to contain a compound up to 10,000 times more effective than the chemotherapy drug Taxol at killing breast cancer stem cells. Even common foods like blueberry have special cancer killing properties, as discussed in a previous article for GreenMedInfo: Research: Radiotherapy Causes Cancer, Blueberry Kills It.

Herbal therapies are an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). While there are 5,767 substances defined in the Encyclopedia of Traditional Chinese Medicinal Substances, a typical practitioner may routinely use between 200 and 600.

Most often, the herbs (a combination of one to 13 different plants) are added to water and boiled. The liquid is then separate from the herbs and drunk as a water decoction.

The herbs may also be consumed in powdered form, spray-dried concentrates, pill form, or even “honey pills,” which are “prepared by combining powdered herbs with concentrated decoctions and honey to produce a small herbal pill.”1
