After reading this, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again  This is interesting. After reading this, you’ll never look at a banana in the same way again. Bananas contain three natural sugars – sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world’s leading athletes. But energy isn’t the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

The rediscovery of a super-antibiotic?
By Selim Rahman
- Last updated on : 25/11/2013

Colloidal silver appears to be a powerful, natural antibiotic and preventative against infections. Acting as a catalyst, it reportedly disables the enzyme that one-celled bacteria, viruses and fungi need for their oxygen metabolism. They suffocate without corresponding harm occurring to human enzymes or parts of the human body chemistry. The result is the destruction of disease-causing organisms in the body and in the food.   Early research Colloidal silver was in frequent use until 1938. Many remember their grandparents putting silver dollars in milk to prolong its freshness at room temperature. At the turn of the century, scientists had discovered that the body's most important fluids are colloidal in nature: Suspended ultra-fine particles. Blood, for example, carries nutritio

The awesome healing power of silver

Silver has physical and (some say) psychic benefits  You know that silver is a precious metal and an industrial commodity but did you know that it also is a powerful healing agent? Silver has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, and it has been used throughout the ages to cure infections and help heal wounds. Now interest in silver is growing in the medical community because new studies have found that it can kill a wide range of bacteria and viruses, including the very dangerous E coli and Staphylococcus.   The form of silver generally used as medicine is colloidal silver, which is the suspension of microscopic particles of silver in liquid.   Before the advent of antibiotics, colloidal silver was used to treat infections.

Benefits of seaweed
By Selim Rahman
- Last updated on : 22/11/2013

Seaweeds are found in many health food shops Introduction Seaweeds offer a wide range of therapeutic possibilities both internally and externally. The term Seaweeds in this case refers only to macrophytic marine algae, both wild and cultivated, growing in saltwater. Botanically, seaweeds are classified as Green, Brown, or Red. A particular seaweed’s placement in one of these groups is determined first by its photosynthetic pigments, then its reproductive mode, then its micro and macro morphologies, and finally by its phycopolymers. The obvious visual colour of a particular seaweed species may not match its taxonomic colour, which can be confusing to the beginner. Persevere. Here I will discuss seaweed’s primary and secondary metabolites and some of their respective peculi

Benefits of garlic

- Last updated on : 22/11/2013

Garlic is a plant native to Africa and Central Asia. It was discovered and used by the ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Jews, Greeks and Romans. Garlic earned a renowned place in the modern natural medicine.  In the Middle Ages and Renaissance when the population was facing great plagues, garlic was used very often as a protective medicine. It gained its fame owing to some wrongdoers who fended off the plague by using antiseptic garlic vinegar. As a result, garlic was known as the best antidote against the plague under the name of ‘the vinegar of the four thieves.’ The diuretic qualities were discovered by Bartholius, who recommended it for treating ague, while Sydenham would recommend it as a dropsical treatment.  The active compounds of garlic are volatile oil

Ancient toothache remedies
By Selim Rahman
- Last updated on : 22/11/2013

The ancients had some pretty weird ideas about toothache   Consider yourself lucky. If you have a toothache, a cavity that needs to be filled or any other dental problem, you can easily get in touch with your friendly dentist. But our ancestors never had it this good. They had to go to great lengths to see a dentist. If one wasn't available, they simply ignored the problem hoping it would go away (in most cases it didn't) or sought solace in several toothache remedies that have no scientific basis. Below is a rundown of what our forefathers had to go through to stop a toothache. In the early days, many people thought that a toothache was caused by a tooth worm. This belief originated in Mesopotamia in 1,800 BC and persisted until the 18th century. It was shared by many cultures

Ancient India comes to your health rescue

By Ali Ismail : The Subcontinent thousands of years ago had advanced therapies I was reading an Australian-edited magazine a few days ago when I found that one of the major articles was about something called oil pulling. Partly, I was trawling for things to add to the health page of which I am the editor and partly I was curious on my own account. The idea of oil pulling seemed crazy, as in insane. Apparently the Ancient Indians used to swish and not gargle vegetable oils in their mouths as a general therapy and oral hygiene regimen. In my experience cooking oils are for, well, cooking and sometimes for adding cold to such things as salads. It never occurred to me that they had independent roles as therapies although olive oil had been, I knew, praised as a bringer of cardiovascu
