Mimosa Pudica Seeds: Nature’s Gut Cleaner

Mimosa Pudica is a flowering, creeping perennial that is native to South and Central America. It's nicknamed "Sensitive Plant," "Touch-Me-Not" and "Bashful Plant" because of its unique reaction to being handled or disturbed. When touched, the plant's leaves fold up and recoil almost immediately and then re-open a few minutes later. The plant itself has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to treat skin disorders, jaundice, cough, and indigestion, and it has also been used as an antidepressant and antivenom agent. But more recently, it has been discovered that the plant's seeds are a powerful anti-parasitic, antimicrobial and intestinal cleanser.

Is Your Doctor on the Take?

I lived in New England, the well-known "high-risk" area of Lyme disease, when I began consulting my doctors on a set of mysterious symptoms that would ultimately be diagnosed as chronic Lyme after two years of intensive testing. But why hadn't my doctors been more on the ball and the least bit interested in what was happening to me when I slid through the cracks of their first-line set of diagnostics? And I also noticed that the tests and treatments these in-network doctors were prescribing were all from the same pharmaceutical companies. Was I being too cynical in thinking that these doctors were being influenced by these pharmaceutical companies to use their tests and products first?

Why We Need to Stop Treating Lyme Disease Like a Typical Infectious Disease

Since its emergence and "discovery" in the late 1970s-early 1980s, Lyme disease and related tick-borne or biting-insect illnesses have become a pandemic and have set themselves apart from the typical widespread infectious diseases that we've seen in the past. Never before have we seen a disease spread so quickly yet be ignored or denied by the official medical community, federal & state governments, health insurance companies and traditional media.

Kostas’ Meditation: A Guided Meditation to Enhance Health and Energetic Protection

In 1987 author Kryiacos Markides published "Homage to the Sun" -- a follow-up to his well-received book "The Magus of Strovolos" that was published two years prior. In both books the author documents the experiences he had with a mystical healer he calls "Dáskalos" (which means "teacher" in Greek), who performed an extensive series of healing miracles on those who visited him on the island of Cyprus. One of his protégés was a man named Kostas, and in the chapter named "Three Bodies" Markides relates a healing and protection meditation that Kostas teaches to the group.

The 7 Major Blocks to Healing Chronic Lyme Disease

If you are a Lyme Disease patient in the middle of progressing through the illness, you’ve probably been through a variation of the following scenario. Some time ago, you started experiencing a range of non-specific, hard-to-explain symptoms that caused you to seek help from your regular doctor. He or she put you through a battery of tests that didn’t reach any clear diagnosis, so you continued testing for years or even decades. At some point, almost by accident, you were diagnosed by a doctor who was more versed in Lyme Disease, and you heaved a sigh of relief. Now you knew what you’re dealing with, so now you could treat it and get it over with. The problem is, you’ve been on a range of treatments and your doctor only seems to be trained in antibiotics, pharmaceutical pain relievers and mood enhancers. Most of these things have only brought about short-term improvement or haven’t worked at all; and some of them have caused symptoms of their own. Your symptomology is either plateauing or getting worse, which is causing you to feel upset. Your doctor notices this and suggests you see a psychiatrist. Now what do you do?
