Prevention = Natural Health Stores:

In my early years, I became aware of the power of preventative medicine through the stories my customers would share. Most had been through various drug therapies yet still did not feel well, and in some cases felt worse. To most, the health store was their last resort.
I found there were 2 types of new customers:
  • I’ve decided to change my life!
  • Can you help me? 
The first group I found would always receive positive results and over a year have made significant improvements in all areas of their health. They did not expect a quick fix as they realized they need to make significant lifestyle changes and take charge of their health. They took on the responsibility to learn, and try various natural foods and supplements, to eventually find a program that suited them.
The second group was looking for a drug therapy result from natural health products, looking for the one quick fix to reduce whatever ails them. If they bought a supplement for pain and it did not work, they may believe natural health is not for them. I found about 50% would eventually become regular customers.
The Key to preventative medicine, is in the understanding or common sense that what we eat has a direct effect on how we think, feel and act. This would be taught in primary school if I had my way, lol!
As the fake food industry expands and novel gene edited foods enter human bloodstreams, without regulation, it will be interesting to see how these foods will affect the way people think, feel and act, even for those who consciously choose what they eat, it will be more difficult to really know what you are eating as Canadian labeling does not require GMO, Crispr, Syn Bio or the other countless new technologies being developed as food!
The first step to health is to be conscious that what you eat or enters your bloodstream will influence your health, the second step is to start shopping in your local health food store!

Evidence Mounts for an Underappreciated Blood Pressure Herb

From the Natural Path Newsletter   
by Linda Woolven M.H., R.Ac & Ted Snider

You know it very well as a vegetable. But you may never have thought of it as a powerful healing herb. Though its long tradition as a blood pressure herb has attracted little attention, science is finally beginning to take note.
Celery seed has a long tradition as a herb for high blood pressure. In traditional Chinese medicine, celery has long been recommended for lowering blood pressure.

Modern science pretty much ignored celery until a preliminary 2013 study showed that 150mg a day of celery seed extract, standardized for 85% 3-n-butylphthalide, can significantly lower blood pressure in people with mild to moderate high blood pressure (Natural Medicine Journal 2013;4(4):1-3).

It took almost a decade to follow that lead up. This year, researchers conducted a triple-blind, placebo-controlled study of celery seed extract. The study gave 52 people with high blood pressure either a placebo or 1.34g of celery seed extract a day for 4 weeks. The celery seed extract significantly lowered both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Systolic blood pressure dropped from 141.2 to 130, and diastolic blood pressure dropped from 92.2 to 84.2. Mean arterial blood pressure and pulse pressure also significantly decreased. In comparison, there was no significant improvement in the placebo group. The celery seed extract was as safe as the placebo. (Phytother Res. 2022 Jul;36(7):2889-2907.

The same group of researchers has published a second study. Also triple-blind, this study included 51 people with high blood pressure. The study lasted 4 weeks, and the dose was again 1.34g a day of celery seed extract.

Once again, while blood pressure did not change in the placebo group, systolic and diastolic blood pressure both went down significantly in the celery seed group. As a bonus, fasting blood sugar, triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and HDL cholesterol all improved significantly in the celery seed group as did measures of liver and kidney function.

Interestingly, perhaps because it worked so well, celery seed extract also significantly improved sleep quality by night and sense of relaxation and freshness by day. It led to significantly better breathing and less dizziness.

And a bonus: celery seed extract was safe with no adverse events.

So, take note. Celery seed extract may be a safe, inexpensive and important addition to your blood pressure program.

By the way, celery seed extract is also a great herb for gout. A thousand years ago, Hildegard von Bingen recommended “pulverized celery seed” as an important part of a herbal combination for gout. A thousand years later, herb authority James Duke, Ph.D. recommended celery seed extract for the same reason.

One very small study has found that celery seed extract standardized for 85% 3nB helps relieve gout. A second, larger study of 70 people found that 75mg of the same celery seed extract taken twice a day for 3 weeks produced statistically and clinically significant improvements.

Higher Potassium Intake Lower High Blood Pressure and Reduces Cardiovascular Deaths, Especially in Women
A truly groundbreaking study was published on July 21, 2022, in the European Heart Journal. The study showed that even in the presence of moderately high salt (sodium) diet individuals who routinely consumed ideal amounts of potassium from food each day showed a reduction in high blood pressure and a significant reduction in death from all cardiovascular causes during a 20-year follow-up period. The blood pressure lowering effect of potassium was especially evident for women and women consuming ideal amounts of potassium each day also had a lower risk of cardiovascular events (11% lower risk) than did men (7% lower risk).

8 Foods, and Other Methods to Relieve Cancer Pain, Chronic Pains
Pain is a common symptom of cancer patients. According to surveys, about 30 percent to 50 percent of cancer patients have pain problems, and more than 80 percent of terminal cancer patients experience pain. Most cancer patients must continually rely on painkillers or morphine. However, even with legal prescriptions, these drugs can bring many uncomfortable side effects, and over time can even damage the brain, liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal system, and immune system, depriving these patients of their chance to recover. If you are looking for a natural and gentle way to relieve your pain without side effects, there are many natural and non-invasive pain relief remedies that can be alternatives to painkillers and existing pain relief methods. Please refer to our earlier article on natural ways to relieve pain as well.

Why is Canada Ignoring Starvation in Africa?

As a child I was made to eat everything on my plate and was told that wasting food was affecting the starving children in China. Today, sadly to say, my family and many other Canadians have forgotten the need to avoid food waste and more importantly have turned our eyes away from starvation in other parts of the world. In fact, in the last few years while severe drought has ravaged the eastern part of the African continent, we have been focused on Covid, the war in the Ukraine and inflation to the detriment of millions of people who have suffered and died without mention in our press.
