Available Forms of Lugol’s Iodine

by Yohanan Burket

Out of the Box RemediesLugol’s iodine was a formulation invented by Dr. Lugol in the early 1800s. It is a combination of elemental iodine (I2), with potassium iodide (KI), in a distilled water base. The purpose of adding potassium iodide to the formula is to make the elemental iodine soluble in water.

Lugol’s iodine has the distinct advantage over drugstore iodine that contains the toxic isopropyl alcohol. For this reason, drugstore iodine is for external use only. In contrast, Lugol’s iodine can be taken internally. Continue reading

Antibiotics, Probiotics and Prebiotics

by Tovah Kersner

In the last few weeks I’ve had the unfortunate experience of being in hospital. I know it sucks, but I had no choice, I was admitted into the emergency room, and I have to thank the hospital doctors who saved my life. My appendix burst and I was left with a mass of bacteria (abscess — a big one) that could very quickly have turned septic, poisoned me and that would have been that. Continue reading

A Healthy Tongue is Pink, Moist, and Smooth

by Yohanan Burket

Out of the Box RemediesFor many years, doctors have used tongue depressors on patients’ tongues in order to get an assessment of overall health. This holistic approach has merit, because different tongue conditions point to different systemic problems. Although sometimes ignored by allopathic medicine today, naturopaths and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) specialists make use of diagnosing diseases via a visual tongue inspection. TCM also correlates different areas of the tongue with different organs. Examples of ailments that are indicated by the tongue include anemia, thrush, dehydration, cyanosis (insufficient oxygen to the lungs), allergies, digestive or kidney problems. A visual inspection of the tongue involves the investigation of its color, texture, and coating. Continue reading

The Enlarged Prostate (BPH) Problem

by Yohanan Burket

A significant proportion of men over 50 are plagued with an enlarged prostate. The prostate is a male gland that is adjacent to the bladder, and when the prostate becomes enlarged, it causes urinary flow restriction. The net result is incomplete urination and frequent trips to the loo (bathroom).

The medical establishment does not have an understanding of the cause of prostate enlargement, but there are natural remedies for this problem. What the medical establishment has discovered is that certain drugs that remedy ED (erectile dysfunction) also solve the enlarged prostate problem. However, the preferred drug has unwanted side effects, like most other synthetic concoctions. Continue reading

Restore Your Eyesight Naturally

by Yohanan Burket

Cataract_Terminator_caption1There are numerous eye problems that can occur, with cataracts being the most common. Within the past few years, an amazing formulation using the amino acid N-Acetyl-L-Carnosine can actually extract the cataract out of the porous lens.

However, other eye problems exist that are unaffected by these special drops, such as retinal problems. This is because the retina is on the inside of the eye and is unreachable using any kind of eye drops. It is well known that many sufferers of cataracts may also have other eye problems, notably macular degeneration, which is caused by poor circulation in the capillaries of the eye, particularly around the retina. Diabetics are especially prone to macular degeneration, sometimes called diabetic retinopathy. This is especially true of those who have had diabetes for at least 10 years. Continue reading

Natural Aspirin is Safer than Synthetic Painkillers

by Yohanan Burket

Natural Aspirin captionA few years ago, a study showed that taking aspirin reduced the risk of a heart attack. As a result,  some people took excessive amounts of over-the-counter aspirin, which contains salicylic acid, damaging their stomach lining and causing bleeding. The drug called aspirin today is an artificial concoction that is supposedly superior to the pain killer used by people hundreds of years ago, namely White Willow bark.

Hippocrates is known as the father of modern medicine, and lived sometime between 460 B.C. And 377 B.C. He made use of the bark and leaves of the willow tree for pain relief. Continue reading
