Tumeric

This article is about all the things the tumeric plant can do for you/us. The same publication recently had an article about what Marijuana could do (which I wrote about).

In the case of Marijuana we have the excuse that it is an illegal drug. No matter how bogus, that is the excuse there. In the case of tumeric there is no such excuse. The issue seems to be the usual—the FDA, clearly a subsidiary Big Pharma, has not and will not give it its blessing. Why?

Sugar and Sugar Substitutes

While a legal drug, sugar abuse is a real issue. Type 2 Diabetes is one of the health problems that result from sugar addiction. But, it's big business.

If there is one thing I have learned it is the best way to fight big business is with big business. For those who did not want to or could not consume the sugar levels being marketed to people, artificial sweeteners have been produced. Unfortunately, they have been less than perfect.

Early artificial sweeteners such as saccrhin just tasted bad.

Say No to Flu Shots

With the number of things the medical profession doesn't know about how bodies work, I tend to be skeptical of each new "wonder drug" we hear about—particularly if there is big profit potential for some drug company. Vaccines have always been on my "is the treatment worse than the disease" list with flu shots, because of their "yearly revision" being at the top.

Eighteen Reasons Why You Should NOT Vaccinate Your Children Against The Flu This Season offers some good information to support my position.

Tea Tree Oil

Recently Tea Tree Oil has gone from something I like to have around to the top item on my essential first aid kit. I'm not going to write a detailed usage guide here as such things exist all over the Internet. Wikipedia is a good place to start for a description and links to use. I have used it for toenail fungus (expect to have to use it regularly 2 or 3 times a day for quite a while) and most recently an ear infection. A person I know used it on a gunshot wound.
