Why All Diabetics Should Know About Turmeric

0

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Many diabetics already know about the benefits of a low-glycemic diet and the need for regular exercise, but why haven’t they heard about turmeric, one of the world’s most extensively researched anti-diabetic plants?

A recent literature review published in the International Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism titled, “Anti-Hyperglycemic Effect and Insulin Sensitizing Effects of Turmeric and Its Principle Constituent Curcumin,” adds promising new support to the notion that the ancient Indian spice turmeric may provide an ideal drug alternative to treating and perhaps even preventing type 2 diabetes, which has become of the world’s most prevalent diagnoses.

Tips On Buying Used Handguns

by Pat Cascio, Survival Blog:

I am no longer teaching NRA firearms classes, though I did that for more than 25 years, mostly giving classes for folks wanting to get their concealed handgun permit. During all those years teaching handgun classes, I had quite a few students ask me about buying used handguns.

What To Look For When Buying Used Handguns

They wanted to know what to look for. More often than not, I’d accompany them to the local gun shop and help them in selecting a used handgun and talk with them about what to look for in a good used handgun.

I’m a sucker for a good deal on a used handgun. I don’t have the funds to buy new firearms all the time, so when I see a used handgun that catches my eye I give it a very close inspection, most of the time.

Selco: What We Ate and How We Got Food When the SHTF

by Selco, The Organic Prepper:

Editor’s Note: If a disaster is bad enough and lasts long enough, it isn’t going to take long before there is no food to be had. In this interview with Selco, he shares his real-life experiences and explains how people kept from starving to death when there was no food in the stores. ~ Daisy

How do you get food when there are no stores?
At the beginning of everything, most of the people did not have any significant “stash” of food in their homes.

In other words, the majority of common folks had food a or couple of days in their pantry and that was it. There were exceptions to that because the process of collapse did not happen in a few hours (in terms of suddenly there is no food in the stores).

SELCO: The Dangers of Looking “Tactical” When the SHTF

by Selco, The Organic Prepper:

Every now and then I get into “rant ” mode, and then even I realize that I am being grumpy. I can’t help myself, I have to go through it, and usually, that means I have to write.

So…

My very good friend told me a story some time ago. This friend is into survival training, and he is a very good observer of people and events.

The MASSIVE differences between healthy sea salt and unhealthy iodized, irradiated table salt

0

by S.D. Wells, Natural News:

Trying to eat healthy and avoid all the major pitfalls of American food? Maybe you would like to sprinkle some aluminum, chlorine bleach, and ferrocyanide on your meal to add a little “flavor?” Sounds delicious. That’s what you’re getting when you use white, iodized, commercial table salt – the same salt that’s on nearly every restaurant table from sea to shining sea. The processing of table salt removes nearly all vital minerals and adds chemicals that cause cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Can I take vitamins after the expiration date?

0

by Edsel Cook, Natural News:

Don’t believe the expiration dates on the bottles of your vitamins and supplements; many of these important products remain effective long after the date has passed.

As long as the product is stored in a cool, dry place, it will retain its effectiveness for many years, long past its expiration date. So you don’t need to throw it out immediately after the day it “expires.”

Post-Collapse Survival Bartering: 10 Items That Will Be Worth Their Weight in Gold

0

by Jeremiah Johnson, Ready Nutrition:

As a nation, we are faced with a host of different problems from many directions, both domestically and internationally. The statistical improbability of a disaster occurring (such as war or economic collapse) decreases with the passage of time and the addition of other factors that lead into such. For a couple of good “primers” on collapse and warfare (overall effects on societies and civilizations), I recommend two by Jared Diamond: “Guns, Germs, and Steel,” and “Collapse.”

When any kind of society or civilization becomes unraveled, usually the nation’s cash loses its value within days at the most. We’re going to cover a few general categories of items to keep for barter (meaning “regular” or frequent trade), citing individual examples within each category. In The Prepper’s Blueprint, the idea of bartering was covered extensively and it isn’t always acquiring tradable goods, but also tradable services.

Living Off the Grid

by Robert Richardson, Off Grid Survival:

For some people living off the grid is more than a lifestyle; it’s a dream or a picture of a dream they are trying to attain. While the average everyday drone may call it strange, even try to paint offgridders as weird loners trying to escape responsibility, the truth is those who dream about going off the grid are anything but weird. And they are most definitely not trying to escape from life; they are trying to capture it and live it to its fullest.

In 1845, at the age of 28, Henry David Thoreau traveled to Walden Pond, Massachusetts where he built a simple cabin and began writing some of the most inspiring literature of our time. In his book Walden, he captured the essence of what so many are looking to find when they “go off the grid” when he wrote:

3 Places Preppers Would Never Think to Scrounge For Survival Supplies

This is a segment that you can take for ideas and build off of for yourself. Survival is all about improvisation, and adaptability: those who adapt to the situation have a better chance at making it through the tough times. This is a different kind of segment, though. The information here is how to make it on what you can scrounge in the wintertime. Sounds simple, right? It isn’t.

We Live in an Imperfect World That is Not Prepper-Friendly

The reason is the “perfect” world we live in does not present you with many opportunities to train. For that matter, there isn’t a lot of encouragement either. Certainly, no one will encourage you: not your family members, your neighbors, or community in general, let alone the government…local, state, or federal. That’s not “life.”

Precious Metals: A Prepper’s Guide to Gold and Silver

by Anonymous 411, The Organic Prepper:

Have you been reading about all the recommendations that preppers stock up on precious metals? If you want to buy gold or silver or have some you want to know more about before you sell then this article is for you. Many people have gold, silver, or coin and paper money collections they inherited and know next to nothing about the items. You need to educate yourself on what you have before you try to sell them so you can get the best price. And if you are looking to buy, you don’t want to pay too much.

Some people accumulate and keep 90% silver U.S. coins, silver bars or gold coins and bars. They keep these coins as a “store of value” for several reasons.

The ancient Indian spice turmeric strikes again! Research finds turmeric extract selectively and safely killing cancer stem cells in a way that chemo and radiation can not.

A groundbreaking new study published in the journal Anticancer Research reveals that one of the world’s most extensively researched and promising natural compounds for cancer treatment: the primary polyphenol in the ancient spice turmeric known as curcumin, has the ability to selectively target cancer stem cells, which are at the root of cancer malignancy, while having little to no toxicity on normal stem cells, which are essential for tissue regeneration and longevity.

What follows is my humble attempt at drawing connections between deep threads in world events. The links I’ve provided are just tiny samples of the information that is available online. This isn’t meant to be a thoroughly-documented report, but one potential scenario that some might have overlooked in the current enthusiasm for our new president. Some of this is a bit dated, but it points to the general reaction of Trump as president. This is my family’s current “Planning Scenario Number One,” and the pieces of the puzzle that fit so far.

Turmeric is nutritional “gold” for your brain

0

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

The Indian spice turmeric has been getting a lot of attention lately for its health benefits, and many people now take turmeric supplements regularly for their anti-inflammatory effects. However, did you know that curcumin, the main bioactive component in turmeric, has outstanding benefits for the brain? It boasts several brain-friendly properties that are earning it the nickname of nutritional “gold” for your brain.

There are a lot of ways that curcumin enhances brain health. Because it boosts the flow of blood to your brain, it can improve your concentration and memory. In fact, one study found that a single dose of curcumin led to significant improvements in healthy senior citizens’ working memory and attention in the space of just an hour. Another study concluded that curcumin supplements can improve blood flow just as well as physical exercise.
