you could walk into a drug store and find
hundreds of herbal extracts for sale. Upwards of
90 percent of the population at that time knew
how to use the medicinal plants growing in their
backyards to treat common illnesses and
injuries; they had to, as this was virtually the
only ‘medicine’ available.
With the rise of what is now known as
conventional allopathic medicine shortly before
World War One, herbalism slowly fell out of
favor and became to be thought of as folk
medicine. Rather than viewing nature as the
source of healing, as had been done for
centuries, people began to view drugs and other
‘modern’ healing methods as superior.

Cinnamon may lower your diabetes risk. By
triggering enzymes that stimulate insulin
receptors and inhibiting enzymes that deactivate

is Good For You: Turmeric is thought to
have cancer-thwarting properties. UCLA

protein causes joint inflammation, so curcumin
could also reduce arthritis risk.

is this delicious fruit packed with vitamin C,
but it also boasts skin-firming collagen.
|Broccoli - Just a half-cup
of broccoli a day can make you feel energized
while also boosting your immune system. Why?
Because broccoli contains more than 2/3 of the

Are you a fan of seafood? Well, this
is might be a very good news for you! Seafood,
when included in the diet, could result in a
slimmer waist and better health. For those
enjoying excellent health and ideal body
weight, having seafood on a regular basis may
even prevent possible future poor health and
weight gain. Studies have shown that seafood
has been found to contain monounsaturated fat
(MUFA). Studies have also shown that having a
regular diet with foods containing MUFA can
prevent belly fat.

seafood is a good way to lose weight, because

to help prevent indigestion.
In a Brazilian weight study, subjects who ate
three apples a day while dieting lost more
weight than those who didn’t. This fruit

contains the amino acid lecithin – which helps

improvement in health. It balances cholesterol
levels and prevents heart attacks and strokes.
|In a study conducted by the
University of Kentucky, watermelon was
found to have a significant effect on artery
plaque deposits because it altered blood lipids
and lowered the risk of developing belly fat.
The researchers in the study observed that
animal subjects in the experiment who had
diet-induced high cholesterol were given a
supplement of watermelon juice while another
group was given a typical diet with water. Eight
weeks later, the animals given watermelon juice
had lower body weight than those who were just
given water. It is also a diuretic (flushes
water from. the body). It appeared that
there was no decrease in muscle mass and the
weight loss was due to abdominal fat loss.
A large tomato contains only around 33
calories. Moreover, a recent study identified
a compound extracted specifically from the
fruit called 9-oxo-octadecadienoic (9-oxo-ODA)
which was shown to influence the amount of
blood lipids in circulation.
According to Dr. Teruo Kawada, the study
leader, “finding a compound which helps the
prevention of obesity-related chronic diseases
in food stuff is a great advantage to tackling
these diseases, and tomato allows people to
manage the onset of dyslipedemia through their
daily diet.” According to Wikipedia,
Dyslipedemia is a condition where there is too
much lipid in the blood. This normally caused
by diet and lifestyle.
|Celery is a negative
calorie food containing only eight calories. It
is high in vitamin C, calcium and is best
enjoyed raw. Enjoying fresh celery juice before

alternative for those who love traditional
noodles. They are made from seaweed and contain
only six calories. They are raw and mineral rich
and can be used like any regular noodles.
Bananas - This is a fruit you can
enjoy as a nutritious snack without ever
worrying about gaining weight. Like apples, it
contains a fiber called pectin that is known

calcium and magnesium.
Bananas, depending upon the size, contain
calories between 75 calories to 135 calories
One study conducted in Florida in 2006 showed
a slight increase in weight loss when grapefruit

|The report, "Violent Behavior: A
Solution in Plain Sight," written by
Sylvia Onusic, Ph.D., CNS, LDN, investigates
reasons for the increase in violent behavior in
America, specifically in teenagers.
|Deficiencies of vitamins such as
fat soluble - A, D, K, water soluble -B1,
B3, B6, B12 and folate, and of minerals iodine,
potassium, iron, magnesium, zinc, chromium and
manganese can all contribute to mental
instability and violent behavior, according to a
report published in the Spring 2013 issue of
Wise Traditions, the journal of the Weston A.
Price Foundation. Source
We can blame violence on the media and on the
breakdown of the home, but the fact is that a
large number of Americans, living mostly on
devitalized processed food, are suffering from
malnutrition. In many cases, this means their
brains are starving.
In fact, doctors are seeing a return of
nutritional deficiency diseases such as scurvy
and pellagra, which were declared eradicated
long ago by public health officials. Many of
these conditions cause brain injuries as well.
Symptoms of pellagra, for example, include
anxiety, hyperactivity, depression, fatigue,
headache, insomnia and hallucinations. Pellagra
is a disease caused by deficiency of vitamin B3.
Zinc deficiency is linked with angry,
aggressive, and hostile behaviors that result in
violence. The best dietary sources of zinc are
red meat and shellfish.

high levels. In an effort to curb child obesity,
the dairy industry recently petitioned FDA to
include aspartame and other artificial
sweeteners in dairy beverages featured in school
lunches, without appropriate labeling.
Recent research has established the fact that
aspartame actually leads to weight gain because
of its effect on insulin.
|Other ingredients in
the food supply linked to violent behavior
|Other ingredients in the food
supply linked to violent behavior include sugar,
artificial colors and flavorings, caffeine,
alcohol and soy foods. The toxic environmental
burden includes mercury, arsenic, lead, fire
retardants, pesticides, heavy metals and Teflon.
Adding psychiatric drugs to this mix puts
everyone at risk.

has pointed out the poor nutritional quality of

funding are required to follow. At a press
conference in January, 2010, the Foundation

meats and healthy animal fats. “Our brains need

|Onusic first cites studies that
show the vitamins A, D3 and K2 are all critical
to brain development. For instance, researchers
from the Children’s Hospital and Research Center
in Oakland, Calif., described how vitamin D,
which is widely distributed throughout the
brain, affects portions of the brain involved in
learning and memory, as well as motor control.
Other scientists have shown how vitamin K2 is
needed for the formation of myelin, which
insulates the nerves.
Meanwhile, it is common knowledge that vitamin B
maintains brain health. All our deficiencies in
vitamins B1 or B3 may cause beriberi and
pellagra, respectively, which include
neurological symptoms such as confusion and even
insanity. What many people don’t understand is
that they may have ‘subclinical’ symptoms
resulting from slight yet still significant
shortages of these vitamins. Also critical for
positive mental health, B6 is a precursor for 50
enzymes and is necessary for the process of
methylation. Vitamin B12 has been correlated
with irrational anger and mental disorders,
Onusic stated in her article.
“A higher incidence of low B12 is found in
mental patients than in the general population,”
she wrote. Finally, folate has been associated
with fetal growth retardation when mothers
receive an inadequate supply during pregnancy.
In fact, hypoglycemia, caused by a diet high in
sugar as well as refined carbohydrates, could
explain many examples of antisocial behavior.
With co-researchers Hippchen, Schauss, and
others, he discovered that hypoglycemia causes
the brain to secrete the neurotoxin glutamate,
which may lead to agitation, depression, anger,
anxiety, panic attacks, and violent behavior.
