The Health Care Solution with Natural Medicine

The theory behind natural medicine is to have the ability to manage your own personal health care by prevention, minimize symptoms, and address the initial cause of illnesses. Natural medicines are from pure unaltered compounds from the earth like; plants, fruits, trees, etc. used to regenerate and heal our bodies. Natural medicine can; relieve pain, soothe headaches, calm allergies, cure colds and flu and so much more. By using natural medicine and partnering with a healthier way of life you too can build and improve your health.

1. The Good

Is alive and well today! Yet it has been around since ancient times. There are many ancient documents that date back to 2500 BC proving they used natural remedies for healing. The Greeks, Romans, Israelis, Arabians, and the Europeans were very influential in furthering the science and use of natural remedies even throughout World War I and II. Almost every nation in the world today is using them in their daily lives. So you have history that gives this power and credibility.
2. The Bad

People have misconceptions about natural medicine and have been told by doctors and the pharmaceutical companies for years it does not work. But in reality it does work. Medicine today is made from different plants, fruits, trees, etc., and pharmaceutical companies have to alter the natural compounds by adding synthetic (not natural) compounds so they can patent them to sell. That is why you have side effects! A whole pure natural product has all the compounds in them so there are no side effects.
3. The Ugly

Natural medicines are not all created equal. There are many products claiming to be natural online and on TV advertised as being natural but has add ingredients that are not; which produces minimal or no relief and may not address the source of the illness.

Your health care solution is as easy as using whole pure natural medicines. I had to change my thinking when I got a cold or the flu I was able to treat it immediately and minimize the symptoms or eliminated them altogether before it got serious. The result has been not having to take antibiotics and suffering from their side effects, fewer doctor appointments and saving money. I have experienced the healing benefits in myself and for my family. Their benefits will stop headaches and muscle pain, relieve colds and flu, kill infections, and gives allergy relief, stops indigestion and so much more.

You need to decide if you want to continue to take or minimize the use of over-the-counter (synthetic) drugs or use natural medicines. I understand that we do need our doctors to help us with surgeries, broken bones and serious illness but there are so many ailments that can be healed naturally without the use of synthetic drugs. Natural remedies are cost effective, convenient, easy to use and most important of all safe.

In closing, I would say that using natural medicine has changed my life and my families. If someone does not have the first clue on how to use natural medicine, then I would suggest they learn how. This is your opportunity for you to be in control of your health care and experience their powerful benefits that will change your life too!

Coffee and Health

From the year dot, my mother taught all her children that coffee was not bad for you. But of course it is. As a result, I managed to keep away from coffee, at least until the difficult age of 10, when, as I recall, I was allowed to join my mother and her neighbors in their regular gossip sessions at the coffee table.

That was when I started to exercise my taste buds on coffee. In those days, I developed a liking for coffee with milk. Perhaps I should have said I drank milk with coffee. However, I know now that the coffee I was drinking back then really was not so good. It was pre-ground, over-boiled and sometimes brewed with the grounds from the day before. Could you imagine anything worse? No wonder I wanted to hide that hideous flavor with tons of milk.

In the meantime, I probably took a good sip of coffee on the road and woke up to a much more pleasant reality. Coffee can be very good. But why do so many voices whisper that coffee and health do not belong together?

Call it food or beverage, coffee is free of any nutritional value. As indecent as it may sound, we consume it exclusively for pleasure.

Yes, the caffeine content in coffee is partly responsible for that pleasure. Caffeine acts as a mild stimulant across the central nervous system. It leads to a better memory, better judgments and idea associations, better coordination of body movement.

A single-serve espresso contains between 80 and 120 milligrams of caffeine. A normal cup of coffee (even drip coffee) contains about 100 - 150 milligrams of caffeine. Common sense calls this moderate consumption at one sitting. Within several hours (although this may vary from one person to another) caffeine is eliminated from the body. Average coffee drinkers can have three or four cups of coffee every day without from any health risk.

As with other foods and beverages, the effects of coffee consumption vary with the dose. Moderate coffee-drinking can be medicinal. Excessive coffee-drinking can be poison. The average female coffee drinker can experience ill-effects after ingesting 550 milligrams at one session. The amount for males is 700 milligrams. These effects refer to headaches, nausea and petulance. Ten grams of caffeine constitutes an overdose. This would be impossible to reach exclusively by drinking coffee. You would need to ingest 100 cups at one session. If you ever do, this may be the last thing you will ever do.

Coffee consumption is not recommended when certain health problems arise. While we have no solid proof for this it is wise to avoid unwanted risks.


Acidity describes the sour component of the coffee taste. It is particularly strong in Arabica coffee and in light roasts. It may have a negative effect on digestion. People less tolerant of acidity but who still wish to drink coffee, can choose a decaffeinated coffee or a natural low-acidity coffee from Brazil, India or the Caribbean.

Other effects noted (for example, in pregnant women) have not been proved to be significantly negative. The medical community today has tended to clear coffee of long-term negative effects upon human health.

The beneficial effects of coffee

Coffee has proved beneficial for asthma sufferers. Two to four small cups of coffee throughout the day will help to reduce the recurrence of astma-attacks, and moderate their intensity.

Coffee contains natural antioxidants called 'flavonoids' which are widely known as disease protectors.

The beneficial effects of moderate caffeine consumption are widely recognised: caffeine works on alertness, mood, sensorial activity and memory. Of course, you may choose to take your daily caffeine ration from other foods and beverages, such as chocolate, carbonated drinks based on coca-nut extract, or tea.

Beside these effects, more or less proved by the medical community, I would mention one more: the pure pleasure of sipping a good cup of coffee. If every person on this planet did this every day, I believe there would be fewer wars, suicides and health problems generally, fewer people who suffer from depression. But I could be wrong.
