25 Powerful Reasons to Eat Bananas
JB Bardot (NaturalNews) You'll never look at a banana the same way again after discovering the many health benefits and reasons to add them to your diet. Bananas combat depression, make you smarter, cure hangovers, relieve morning sickness, protect against kidney cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis and blindness. They can cure the itch of a mosquito bite and put a great shine on your shoes. If you think bananas are just for monkeys, think again. Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin -- the happy-mood brain neurotransmitter.

The Amazing Health Benefits of Coconut Oil Coconut oil has been called the healthiest dietary oil on earth. If you're not using coconut oil for your daily cooking and body care needs, you're missing out on one of nature's most amazing health foods. Coconut oil is nature's perfect food and there are an incredible number of benefits to using coconut oil in everyday life – from minor infections to serious diseases, coconut oil cures it all. After being demonized as an artery clogger for the last 60 years by the majority of health care officials and the mainstream media, coconut oil stayed out of the public consciousness until now. Multiple studies on Pacific Island populations (who get 30-60 percent of their total caloric intake from fully saturated coconut oil) have all shown nearly non-existent rates of cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, and obesity – issues we have come to accept as only being cured by pharmaceuticals. We now know that not all saturated fats are created equal.

The Miracle of Tea Tree Oil: 80 Amazing Uses for Survival Gaye Levy Activist Post Essential oils have been used for healing and medicinal purposes for centuries and most certainly long before we had pills, capsules and big pharma to take care of our medical woes.

(There is an excellent movie available by Kenny Ausubel, Hoxsey: How Healing Becomes a Crime , which you can purchase elsewhere on the web, along with the book -- same title.) Few stories in this business elicit such deep pathos, and few figures in the last century are as polarizing between the forces of orthodoxy and those of the alternative community as that of Hoxsey. If Caisse was subdued and less given to self-promotion (perhaps reflective of the Canadian character) than Hoxsey was her anti-thesis. His "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead" approach provided him with a cavalcade of court actions by medical authorities and their counterparts at the U.S. FDA.
