There’s a long list of natural products the Egyptians used to help rise to supremacy in the Ancient Near East. And we use many of them to this day.

This Will Keep Working When Antibiotics Don’t

Antibiotics are without a doubt one of the most beneficial inventions humankind has ever come up with.

It’s sobering to see what would happen if antibiotics stopped working.  “Antibiotics are facing an existential crisis less than a century since their introduction.

These Symptoms May Mean You Suffer From A Medical Mystery

I have a “gut” feeling that you’re not going to like what you hear today. However, I think it’s important you learn about this problem so you can fix it. This is a problem that isn’t yet recognized by the mainstream medical community, so you might not get the help you need there, which is why I’ll tell you about it today. True, I didn’t learn about it in medical school, even though over 2,000 years ago the man called the father of medicine recognized the problem. (No, not me… I can’t time travel but if I could, he’s one guy I’d love to meet).  Let’s check out some of these symptoms and see if any of them sound familiar: ...

5 Reasons to Start Using Essential Oils Today

Ok, first thing’s first. By no means am I going to assure you essential oils are a newly discovered “miracle cure’. Yes, I’m sure you’ve seen them becoming quite popular as of late. There’s a good reason for that, but they’re not a new miracle cure for a few reasons. 1. They’re not new. Essential oils have been used in cultures all around the world for thousands of years, so to call them new is quite misleading. 2. They’re not a miracle cure. Yes, they’re wonderful to help relieve tension, and they’re great for all kinds of maladies. But, anyone who tells you essential oils are the future of medicine has had too much Kool-Aid. That’s all there is to it....
