Why is Drinking Lemon So Popular?

27 Aug 2019
Why is Drinking Lemon So Popular?

Why do so many “cleanse” programs suggest drinking hot lemon water in the morning? Warm beverages encourage movement in the digestive tract. Sour flavors, similar to bitter flavors, stimulate digestive juices to flow. A hot drink in the morning can help promote regular bowel movements. The bowels are one of the body’s main “detox” pathways.  Clear, unsweetened fluids do not move the body from its “fasting” state to its “fed” state. This allows an extended period of time for regeneration and repair. For those who don’t digest fruit well, try these alternatives. Rice or white vinegar can be used instead of lemon. Also, you might try adding a number of.

Treating and Preventing the Flu

24 Jan 2018

There is a nasty flu epidemic occurring, one of the worst I have ever seen.  In fact, there appears to be at least two different flu types, and possibly more.  The worst I am seeing is a flu that affects breathing and may result in pneumonia.  It is characterized by fever, but not in all cases.  It is accompanied by achiness, sometimes deep achiness and severe weakness.  Here is what I am finding that helps, and I may have to modify or add to this as the days go by and I see more. Homeopathic Gelsemium: use the 30c, or the 200c if you can find it.  Begin with this, and.

Childhood Asthma

18 Jan 2017

Over the past 2 decades, we have seen a substantial increasing in childhood asthma. It is now considered an epidemic. Some children die from this. Many are limited in activity and must medicate daily in order to breathe comfortably. In simple terms, asthma is an inflammatory disturbance in the small airways of the lungs. Inflammation causes swelling and secretions, and this reduces the flow of air into and out of the lungs. There can be various triggers, including exercise, stress, cold air, dust, smoke, animal dander, pollens and other external allergens and pollutants, and certain foods. There can be congenital and possibly genetic aspects, as well. The standard treatments are.

Simple Healing Soup

This is a recipe for simple healing soup. I recommend this recipe for people who are trying to heal and do not know what to eat. This simple diet is nourishing and will provide significant nutrition while being easy to digest. Simple healing soup will help reduce or eliminate the “toxemia” which occurs for digestive disturbances and which drives inflammation in the body. This soup can be varied in many ways, as the recipe demonstrates. 2-4 quarts of pure water. Do not use filtered or bottled water if the filter is a carbon filter, as most carbon filters are made today from coconut husk charcoal and this will put elements into.

Interstitial Cystitis

21 Jun 2016

“Interstitial Cystitis” is defined as a “noninfectious bladder inflammation that causes pain, urinary frequency and urgency with incontinence.” (Merck Manual)  It is like a bladder infection that never stops, and that has no good conventional treatment.   The Merck Manual article goes on to say that  “cure is rare”.  But cure is common in our clinic.  Cure, meaning, no further pain or problem.  I will write a bit here how we accomplish cure for this difficult problem. Like many chronic inflammatory problems, there is a dietary problem that underlies most of this.  The explanation is simple.  If one consistently eats a food that irritates one’s body, the irritation becomes chronic..

The Healing Power of Nature

The Healing Power of Nature

The healing power of nature is the inherent self-organizing and healing process of living systems which establishes, maintains and restores health. Naturopathic medicine recognizes this healing process to be ordered and intelligent. It is the naturopathic physician’s role to support, facilitate and augment this healing process by identifying and removing obstacles to health and removing obstacles to health and recovery, and by supporting the creation of a healthy internal and external environment. In the western medical system, the doctor’s knowledge and wisdom are intended to supersede the disease process. The naturopathic physician does not do battle with a disease entity. Instead, we rely upon the healing wisdom, vital energies and.
