Colon Cleanse Product Reviews
Prepared by the Editorial Staff of Natural Healing Today
In recent years, detoxifying the colon has become one of the most popular therapies commonly recommended by natural health practitioners. For good reason since more than 50 percent of the immune system is located in or around the digestive system, especially the large intestine. This means that until the colon is thoroughly cleansed and the toxins removed, nutrients will not absorb properly, and digestion will be hindered – leading to constipation, gas, bloating, IBS, headaches, bad breath, allergy symptoms, PMS, fatigue, depression, irritability, frequent infections and weight gain.
How Burdened is Your Body?
By Ryan N. Harrison, MA, HHP, NC, EFT-ADV
“Detoxification” has become a nice buzz word lately. It sounds good, rolls off the tongue easily. And, depending on where you live and your lifestyle, if you happen to mention it to your friends or coworkers, it’s likely to make you seem “in the know” about natural healing and health. But do you know what detoxification really is and why is it so important?..
Quit Your Job - Sell Drugs
By Shane Ellison, M.Sc.
The growth in knowledge of biochemistry, physiology, organic chemistry, and chemical process methods has yielded millions of new synthetic (man-made) drug targets. These new discoveries have the potential to bring billion-dollar profits to any pharmaceutical company. First though, these companies must convince medical doctors, the FDA and the American public of the necessity of the new patentable drugs in ensuring health. Considering that these drugs have toxicity profiles that make marijuana and crack look like candy this endeavor looks impossible at first glance. Adding to our difficulties, natural, inexpensive medicine derived from food are easily accessible and extremely effective. We have a potent competitor...
Detox and Diet
By Lynn Hardy, ND, CNC
As a Naturopath and a big advocate of detoxification, one of the most frequently asked questions I come across is, “What do I eat while detoxing”? While for some people the food they eat or don’t eat serves as the detox in itself, most people prefer the aid of a well-researched proven detox program to guide them through the detoxification process. Even though I have fasted many times in my life, for regular cleansing (every six months or so) I too prefer a specific program to follow so that I will not have to alter my life too drastically...
Three Steps to Diffuse
the Ticking Time Bomb
to Vitamins and Minerals
By Jonathan V. Wright, M.D.
You’ve taken supplements for years. You’re out of vitamins C and E. You go to your natural food store, but you can’t find the kind you want on the shelf. You ask a clerk to find them for you. She says you can’t get your vitamin E as mixed tocopherols (the best natural form) anymore, and asks if you like your vitamin C in the 100- or 200-milligram size....

The training of our eye doctors in this country is very comprehensive. There have been major advances in the treatment of eye disease and even laser surgery is available today to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. But it doesn’t really correct the underlying problem of why it is there to begin with. Eye care in this country is symptom-oriented. In our training as eye doctors we’re taught that once something goes wrong with your eyes there is not much that can be done to help reverse the condition. Vision problems are multiplying at epidemic proportions in our society. The eye care industry is a multi-billion dollar business. Glasses, contact lenses, and eye surgery are the major tools of that industry and these enter the lives of virtually all of the citizens of the Western world. Aldous Huxley wrote in his book The Art of Seeing that “if everyone who had deficient vision had broken legs, the streets would be full of cripples...

The misprescribing and overprescribing of drugs is a trend with such inertia that it seems to be unstoppable. The power of the pharmaceutical companies and drug industry is massive and underestimated. As a result, millions of drug-induced diseases and their attendant complications and consequences are experienced each year by unsuspecting people who trust their doctors implicitly.
Without a doubt, prescription drugs can be useful – even life saving – for some people. When used as directed and only when absolutely necessary, prescriptions can be a blessing. Recently, however, WorstPills.org published some staggering statistics related to the misprescribing, overprescribing, and misuse of prescription drugs that is all too common within our current medical system...
Vitamine E - Fact & Fiction
Lately, the media has been having a field day with vitamin E, spinning one story after another in an attempt to discredit it as a safe and effective nutritional supplement. Most recently, Neil Levin, Nutrition Educator and Clinical Nutritionist, in his article “The Truth About Vitamin E – Vitamin E is Safer Than Implied,” (available at www.nowfoods.com) presented a clear-cut picture of how and why this faulty information is being generated and disseminated...

What kills the HIV-1 (and virtually any other) virus? The answer may surprise you: Silver. In a landmark study, the Journal of Nanotechnology has published research that found silver nanoparticles (microscopic particles) kill HIV-1 and are likely to kill nearly any other virus out there. The first study to ever explore the medicinal benefits of silver nanoparticles, it was conducted by the University of Texas and Mexico University...
