Fight Ebola and Other Diseases Naturally

It’s been a scary ride watching the news fear monger the spread of the Ebola virus. Yes, it is serious but rather than cause people to bite their nails and sweat in panic this can be a teachable moment.

Discussing the importance of how to fight Ebola and other diseases naturally may be a better news item than the latter. Addressing simple ways to change some habitual practices and strengthen the immune system could make a big difference.

If Ebola or the flu or any other number of diseases we are vulnerable to arise, shoring up your first line of defense can easily start now. With a strong mental and physical constitution, you could possibly remain unscathed.

Yet, if you are unfortunately infected having an immune system that is ‘at the ready’ could make vaccine treatment and recovery more successful.

Get Back into Carbs With These Whole Grains

Carbohydrates have been unfairly vilified over the last twenty years. Every fad diet from Atkins to South Beach to Paleo places glucose squarely in the middle of its cross-hairs. This aversion to starch isn’t altogether unfounded. Thanks to GMO wheat farms and the mass production of bleached grain, the vast majority of carbohydrates in the American diet are the bad kind of carbohydrates. The white flour products that line the halls of your nearest grocery store pack all the glycemic index busting punch without any of the off-setting benefits of whole grains. In other words, Atkins works because it eliminates these empty calories, not because all carbohydrates are evil.

Five Facts About GMOs

Much has been made about the purported health and environmental consequences of the widespread cultivation of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). The truth of the matter has been further obfuscated by a high profile ballot measure campaign in the State of California during the 2012 election. In the Golden State, the food industry engaged in a multimillion dollar ad war against health and environmental groups over a proposed ballot initiative to require the labeling of all foods containing GMOs. The ballot initiative failed, thanks in large part to the superior purchasing power of the commercial food lobby. More significant perhaps, was the wealth of misinformation injected by both sides into the debate through disingenuous political attack ads.
