By Heather Callaghan, Natural Blaze

For the first time – during just the tiniest dot in history – most people in the Western world can afford to be leisurely. That is to say, hard physical labor isn’t necessarily the way most people are active.

Physical movement is now a conscious choice, not an act of survival. Continue reading Exercise is Punishment in the Collective Unconscious and That’s a Problem

By Christina Sarich, The Mind Unleashed

You’d think we’d be more connected than ever, but even with a million ways to reach out and touch someone, social media notwithstanding, we’re more alone than ever. Sadly, new research suggests that pervasive loneliness is worse for our health than smoking. WOW. You read that right. You can die from loneliness – but read on and we’ll make sure that doesn’t happen.

Aside from making us feel miserable, what can loneliness do to our health? Researchers have been looking at this question for at least a decade now, and their findings are shocking. People who consistently feel lonely are much more likely to die early. Continue reading Loneliness is Bigger Health Risk than Smoking in Age of Social Media

7 Reasons Why You Should Have a Medicinal Garden

By Tess Pennington, Natural Blaze

Growing medicinal plants are a great way to ensure garden sustainability and, more notably, have access to natural medicine when you need it most. When I introduced more herbs in my garden, I noticed it had a profound impact on the vegetables and fruits I was growing. It also encouraged beneficial insects and birds to visit my garden and this helped cut down on plants being eaten.

Because of this observation, I changed my focus from solely growing to eat and, instead, worked to create a welcoming growing environment. Not only were my plants healthier, but I had access to natural herbs to use for making extracts and poultices. The following are reasons I feel gardeners should adopt adding medicinal herbs to the garden. Continue reading 7 Reasons Why You Should Have a Medicinal Garden

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Pharmaceuticals may not be the best medicine for patients. Some doctors are now changing the way they treat patients – by taking them grocery shopping.

Physicians, such as Dr. Daniel Nadeau, are prescribing food rather than pills to fix the body.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of all Americans routinely take prescription drugs, and 75 percent of all doctor visits involve drugs. Continue reading Prescription Food: Learn Why Doctors Are Turning To Food To Treat The Body

Scientists Find Link Between Excess Sugar and Alzheimer’s Disease

By Mike Barrett, Natural Society

We know (or think we know) that high blood glucose, or hyperglycemia, is linked to diabetes and obesity. But now scientists have also recently discovered a link between excess blood sugar and Alzheimer’s disease.

Researchers have established a “tipping point” link between excess blood glucose and the disease, meaning that people who eat a lot of sugar could be more likely to go on to develop Alzheimer’s. [1] Continue reading Scientists Find Link Between Excess Sugar and Alzheimer’s Disease

Food Industry Study Slams Recommended Sugar Intake Limits

A study made headlines after stating that there is no way of knowing just how much sugar consumption is too much, and the methods used to create dietary sugar intake limits are flawed.

CNN’s headline reads: “How much sugar is OK? Paper adds to debate.” Hmm, not really. The study was funded by the North American branch of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI), a nonprofit with ties to Hershey’s, Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, McDonald’s, Mars, and Kraft Foods. [1]

There’s not much of a debate when the companies funneling money into research make soda, candy, and processed foods. Continue reading Food Industry Study Slams Recommended Sugar Intake Limits

By:

People Who Believe In The Good Nature Of Others, Are Highly Sensitive Or Emotionally Intelligent, Are The Most Common Targets For Narcissistic Abuse.

Residing where any kind of emotional or mental abuse takes place is going to affect your health. Not only that, but the way you see yourself, and how much worth you believe you have, will suffer greatly.
When you are constantly told that you are the problem and that your rational and completely normal ways of responding to their abuse are contributing to the issue, what else could possibly be expected to happen? Your mind begins to sever- rationale and fear are intertwined, and the body reacts in several different ways, all displayed through types of anxiety disorders.

Is Non-Ionising Radiation Really Safe?

By Dr. Ellis Evans, Natural Blaze

The telecoms industry and governmental regulators have consistently ignored or avoided meaningful discussion on the cancer risks from using mobile phone and other microwave devices such as DECT phones, smart-meters, etc.

Our safety regulators also routinely disregard any form of criticism, particularly the omission of non-thermal biological effects in their regulatory methodology.

The reason why is very simple yet they do not advertise the ‘Achilles heel’ or foundation stone of their regulatory and legal methodology. In fact, all safety legislation in all countries that rely on data from the International Commission on Non-ionising Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) focus solely on non-ionising radiation. Biological or non-thermal effects such as cancer, DNA-breakages, disruption in cellular transport and other adverse biological processes are completely ignored.
