YOUR BRAIN ON DRUGS… NOT WHAT YOU THINK
Long-term use of many anti-depressant drugs affect the brain’s ability to produce neurotransmitters, sometimes resulting in permanent states of “depression”, or even in psychotic episodes like those seen in many recent mass murders/suicide attempts. Alternative physicians are opting for a more natural methodology to treat depression, by blood testing patient amino acid levels (the building blocks of neurotransmitters), and supplementing those found deficient. Results have been amazing, without the long-term side effects of anti-depressant drugs. If you or someone you love is depressed, investigate the inexpensive yet highly effective treatment of amino acid supplementation as an alternative to anti-depressant drugs.
NEGATIVITY AND YOUR HEALTH
The energy we create through the negative emotions (anger, fear, jealousy etc.) and stress has a tremendously negative affect on our health. These emotions trigger the fight or flight response in the brain, which prepares the body for action by cutting off digestion, reproduction, and healing. It also sends sugar into the bloodstream, increases cortisol, raises blood pressure, and increases insulin (causing fat storage). Since we rarely actually fight tigers or chase deer anymore, these physical reactions take quite a toll on our health when repeated daily. Minimize negative emotions to maximize health.
SPICE UP YOUR LIFE FOR BETTER HEALTH
Many spices have been used historically for medicinal purposes, but the knowledge of their natural healing power has been lost in the age of modern medicine. Cloves, for example are a wonderful, natural detoxifying spice for the liver, and they have the highest level of antioxidants of any spice or herb! Cloves brewed in tea or added to foods can protect the liver from alcohol damage, ease digestive difficulties like gas and bloating, and provide safe detoxification. Consider spicing up your life with cloves to maximize health!
