This herb, Tumeric (Curcuma longa ) has been used for thousands of years. There is evidence in publications that it can help against cancers, protects the brain, enhance detoxification, promotes radiant skin and maintains a healthy immune response.

Turns out, the amazing healing effects are derived primarily from its most active and abundant compound, curcumin. And scientists say they now know why curcumin is such a powerful healing compound.

Once metabolized in the body, curcumin inserts itself into your cell’s membrane. There it does a little house-cleaning and reorganizing. This may not seem like a big deal…

But once a cell becomes organized again, it’s able to process information more easily…fight off harmful intruders more readily…and quickly remove dangerous toxins

There are many companies promoting their own turmeric. I have used many different brands of turmeric. I have used Meriva, Curcumin Plus, and CanArrest. These are professional , high potent curcumin—

I think we often think of eucalyptus as a nice smell. Do you ever think f the medicinal benefits of this plant., It grows on trees and is native to Australia. I am waiting for the Edible Series Books to have a book on Eucalyptus.

Eucalyptus has anti viral, anti bacterial and is anti inflammatory. I have used it to help cure the common cold, flu and fevers. It can loosen phlegm and ease congestion. I know my mother and my Nanny used to always put Vick’s vapor rub in the vaporizer. Putting eucalyptus in the vaporizer or diffuser does the job also.

Eucalyptus oil has also been an analgesic or painkiller. It soothes pain and inflammation . It is excellent for arthritis and soothing sore muscles

As a cardiologist it is a powerful vasodilator. It can used to decrease blood pressure very effectively.

For the man or woman who wants to nourish their hair follicles- this is an excellent oil. It can be combined with rosemary oil or coconut oil and massaged into the scalp

If you haven’t used this plant for medicinal use —start now

There are millions of people suffering with depression in the United States. Depression is a real disease. There are many conventional medications used to treat depression. Each drug has side effects. I utilize herbs and supplements and different modalities to treat depression

COMPASS pathways has been given the ‘ go ahead’ to test a psilocybin based drug for depression. Psilocybin component- ‘ the magic mushroom’; is best known f This psychedelic mushroom has already proven an immediate and sustained reduction in depression .

It has been described as “ shaking the snow globe up or rather rebooting the brain. I am excited about this trial as I believe and know that plants, herbs and mushrooms can hold the key to treating a majority of the diseases that affects individuals. There are 400 or more patients enrolled in the study and it will take place in the next few months both in Europe and North America. The length of the study is for about 12- 18 months. I look forward to the results

Have you ever tried Spirulina ? It is one of those superfoods that everyone should have.

Spirulina is often deemed the most nutritionally complete of all foods and has countless uses as a supplement for maintaining good health and preventing diseases. This is because it contains a plentiful supply of many important nutrients and antioxidants, including protein, complex carbohydrates, iron, and vitamins A and K, as well as B complex. It’s also rich in chlorophyll, fatty and nucleic acids, and lipids. Spirulina is rich in gamma-linolenic acid, or GLA.

It is a great source of Beta carotene, rich in iron and an excellent source of protein.

It is a builder of beneficial bacteria. and a great detoxifier. I utilize it a lot in my practice for those patients who have heavy metal toxicity.

There is no better flower to discuss on Valentine’s Day than the Rose. In Shakespeare’s Henry VI there is a piece of text between Plantagenet and Somerset that the Rose is mentioned.

Plantagenet: Let him that is a true born gentleman

From off this brier pluck a white rose with me

Somerset: Let him that is no coward nor no flatterer…

Puck a red rose from off his thorn with me.

The rose is a type of flowering shrub. Its name comes from the Latin word Rosa. The flowers of the rose grow in many different colors. Red for true love, yellow for friends and so on.

The rose was designated the official flower and floral emblem of the United States of America in 1986.

The Rose is a symbol of love on any day but especially on Valentine’s Day. It can also be said a symbol of war and peace all over the world. Each state adopts a State flower—5 states have the Rose as its state flower- New York, Oklahoma, Georgia, Iowa and North Dakota.

Interesting that the Rose has been around for 35 million years. There have been many medicinal or health benefits of the Rose Some Some of these are 1. soothe skin irritation. 2. reduces skin redness, 3. helkps and treats infections, 4. heals cuts, scars and burns, 5. enhances moods and 6. Relieves headache

Did you give someone a Rose today ?

I think as a beekeeper and Vice President of the American Apitherapy Society it is appropriate for me to discuss Honeyberry also known as Lonicera caerulea. It is also known the haskap berry, blue-berried honeysuckle, or sweetberry honeysuckle It is a honeysuckle native throughout the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere in countries such as Canada, Japan, Russia, and Poland. Haskap is a deciduous shrub growing to 1.5–2 m tall.

I think we do not hear about Honeyberry as its season coincides with the strawberry season in June. The fruit morphology of this plant is so diverse than fewer than nine species are recognized. Most of the berries are indigo and elongated.

It is s a blue pigmented fruit. Lonicera caerulea contains polyphenol compounds. Other phytochemicals present are proanthocyanides and organic acids These phytochemicals are excellent anti oxidants and have anti tumor or anti cancer properties.

I highly recommend reading The Edible Series: Berries A Global History by Heather Arndt Anderson.

In the last few years there have been more books written on Natural cancer Cures. Recently I purchased and starting reading : Winning the War on Cancer: The Epic Journey Towards a Natural Cure by Slvie Beljanski. Ms Beljanski is not an oncologist, but she doesn’t need to be. She is Vice President of the Beljanski Founation. Her father is the infamous Dr Mirko Beljanski, PhD biologist-biochemist who studied, research and wrote for many years on natural cures for Cancer. He trained at the famous Pasteur Institute. He was a pioneer who was unjustly ostracized by the conventional medical community for his different approaches. He journey was not unlike that of my former medical mentor and partner, the late Robert Atkins when we worked together at his Complimentary Center in NYC.

Her book is a MUST to read. It is an eye opening experience to hear the real truth about the war of cancer. I am proud of her accomplishment in this book. The Beljanski’s herbs, Pao Pereira and Rauwolfa vomitoria which many of my patients have used are regulated by the FDA.

I can relate to her own struggle of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition which natural treatment and dietary changes has done more for me than any conventional medicine.

All the information presented in her book shows how the medical and scientific establishments go to all lengths to stop this information from being distributed. Why ? The cancer industry is a money wheel where many profit except the patient most of the time.

Buy this book - contact www.beljanski.org 100 % of the author’s proceeds will be donated to the Beljanski Founation (501 (c)(3) which continues its search for a natural cure to cancer
