Why Don’t More Doctors Recommend Lemon Balm

If you were a doctor and you wanted to help people maintain vibrant health… and you discovered an herb capable of helping with blood sugar, cardiovascular issues, thyroid health and more, do you think you’d recommend it? I know I would. In fact, I do recommend this herb with some frequency. It’s called lemon balm, and no, lemon balm isn’t related to lemon even though lemon is a shared commonality in their name. Lemon balm is an herb which comes from the mint family. Originally lemon balm grew in the Middle East as well as the southern portions of Europe. It now grows throughout the Americas. Lemon balm enjoys a long history of therapeutic use and only recently with modern...

Try This Out for Sore Knees, Neck, Back and More

You know what’s a pain in the neck? A pain, in the neck. Well, pain anywhere in the body is never fun to deal with. Sadly, most of us know if we want to numb pain it’s generally pretty easy to do with a Motrin or some Tylenol. But, as I’ve written about before, neither of these over the counter painkillers is suitable for human consumption. I’m not going to judge you and give you a condescending “doctor stare” if you do take them (I can’t do that since I’m nowhere near you). That being said, I think you should do your best to avoid them as there’s an incredibly powerful natural alternative for occasional pain. It’s one of the...

Can You Believe the Results Of These Vitamin K2 Studies?

In the past few years, I’ve probably written more about vitamin K-2 than I have any other vitamin. Or, for that matter, any other nutrient. There are a few reasons for my intense focus on vitamin K-2. The first is because the vast majority of Americans are deficient in vitamin K-2. This is an issue, as vitamin K-2 is essential in keeping your heart healthy as well as improving the health of your bones. Vitamin K-2 also helps to improve blood sugar levels so they remain in the healthy range. And vitamin K-2 has also been shown to boost immune function. Today, I want to direct your attention to another incredible benefit of vitamin K-2. Harnessing this unique power of...

Beets

Beets. Probably not a food that makes it on to your dinner table with any amount of frequency. Once you read this I hope that changes. Beets really are an incredible food. Which is why health-food companies manufacture hundreds of new products with beets in them yearly. And while beets are a great food to eat, let me start this article off with a warning. If you prepare beets at home, make sure you’ve got a really good hand soap. Otherwise it may look like you’ve committed murder when the reddish color of the beet stains your hands. Of course that red color, the same way that’ll stain your hands like a red ink, is the conduit of many of the...
