Medical interest surfaced in the early 1960s at the Oregon Health and Science University Medical School, where Dr. Stanley Jacob discovered that DMSO could penetrate skin and organ membranes without damaging them. Dr. Jacob researched DMSO further and found several topical analgesic applications for animals and humans.
He went further with injecting or ingesting DMSO for a bladder malady, interstitial cystitis (IC). In 1978, the FDA allowed DMSO to be used for IC. Dr. Jacob has consumed a teaspoonful of DMSO daily for over 30 years and has claimed perfect health. 
DMSO has been used to alleviate Crohn’s disease suffering. You can search on YouTube for “DMSO 60 Minutes” videos and witness interesting interviews with Dr. Jacob and some of his patients treated for assorted ailments.
But the big deal with DMSO involves treating cancer. R. Webster Kehr of Cancer Tutorand other sites reported on a series of experiments with cancerous animals which discovered that DMSO targets cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone. Kehr recommends using DMSO to get high-pH cesium more deeply into tissues contaminated with cancer cells. 
There have been oncologists who have used DMSO with some existing chemotherapy drugs effectively. Instead of the chemo destroying everything in its path as usual, the DMSO escorted the chemo to cancer cells only, thus greatly reducing the amount of chemotherapy needed for a result.
Maybe that’s why doctors who had used FDA/AMA-approved chemo drugs with DMSOwere shut down. Using only 10% of any chemotherapy drug and getting positive results negatively affects Big Pharma and oncologists’ profits.
However, DMSO has been used by itself successfully for cancer. There have been anecdotal cures, and a scientific study published in 2010 in India mentions that much in vitro (lab culture) testing has demonstrated DMSO’s ability to induce apoptosis in cancer cells. 
They went beyond test tubes and cultures by using DMSO on live animals with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, a blood cancer disease. The DMSO induced cancer cell apoptosis with tumor reduction while leaving non-cancerous cells unharmed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov).
The FDA requires DMSO be sold as a “solvent” even if it’s pure. That’s what the label is supposed to read to avoid FDA issues. You can order directly from Dr. Jacob’s site or Amazon. And you can get a better understanding of DMSO for cancer by visiting the Camelot website from the sources below.

|7 Deadly Microbes Killed by Colloidal Silver at Very Low Concentrations: Study
A 2011 study demonstrates that very low concentrations of colloidal silver produced “pronounced
antibacterial effect” against six well-known and potentially deadly disease-causing microbes, and
even against one microbe used to simulate anthrax in germ warfare tests.
What does this mean to you? It means colloidal silver can help protect you and your family against
six of the most common disease-causing microbes known to man – microbes that produce millions
of infections and hundreds of thousands of deaths every single year. What’s more, colloidal silver
may well protect against deadly germ warfare pathogens, as well.
Read my short article below to learn which well-known – and sometimes deadly — disease-causing
microbes have been clinically proven to be eradicated by colloidal silver in lab studies, even at
extremely low concentrations, and why this information is so important for you to know…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for TheSilverEdge.com…
In a clinical study published in the Digest Journal of Nanomaterials and Biostructures, researchers
from the Metallurgical and Material Science Engineering Department at Dokuz Eylul University in
Turkey documented that colloidal silver demonstrated a pronounced antibacterial effect against
What’s more, the colloidal silver evidenced this pronounced antibacterial effect in very low
concentrations, i.e., 2-4 ppm.
The seven pathogens tested were:
Silver: A Noble Metal
One of the most interesting aspects of the above-linked study, for me, is that the researchers
correctly refer to silver as a “noble metal,” rather than a “heavy metal.”
The term “noble metal” is the correct scientific nomenclature for silver. After all, silver is in the
same family of metals as platinum, palladium and gold (all noble metals) and NOT in the family
of metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, cobalt and arsenic, which are known as the “heavy
Unfortunately, unscrupulous groups and individuals who are known naysayers of colloidal silver
continue to refer to silver as a “heavy metal” – this, as a sensationalistic means of scaring people
into believing it’s a cumulative toxic poison, when it is not.
Why Bacillus Subtillis?
Another interesting thing is that the researchers in the above-linked study tested colloidal silver
against six well-known, disease-causing microbes, plus one relatively non-pathogenic microbe
known as Bacillussubtilis.
The researchers don’t explain why they included Bacillus subtilis among the bacteria tested, as
it is generally considered to be a benign microbe except in cases of immuno-compromised individuals.
While Bacillus subtilis has been implicated in rare cases of eye infection, meningitis and bacteremia,
as well as some cases of nosocomial infection (i.e., of surgical wounds in hospitals), it’s actually a
common soil bacteria that’s considered to be ubiquitous in the environment, and generally harmless.
However, the unusual hardiness of this microbe may have been the reason it was included in the study,
as it is considered to be very difficult to kill.
You see, although relatively harmless, Bacillus subtilis has also been used as a “simulant” in germ
warfare studies for its first cousin, Bacillus anthracis – the deadly anthrax pathogen.
In other words, Bacillus subtilis is generally thought to be as difficult to kill as anthrax. According to oneresearcher, Bacillus subtilis has many of the same protective characteristics as the deadly
Apparently, it’s the formation of these endospores that gives Bacillus subtilis its unusual resistance
to toxic chemicals and physical agents, including common disinfectants.
Demonstrating that colloidal silver easily stops Bacillus subtils in its tracks is essentially the
equivalent of demonstrating that it can also stop anthrax or other serious and difficult-to-kill
pathogens, as well.
Indeed, in the book The Hot Zone, author Richard Preston tells the true story of how the U.S.
Army stopped a deadly Ebola outbreak at a research facility using formaldehyde gas. Not wanting
to risk lives testing for the presence of Ebola, they first inoculated the facility with Bacillus subtilis,
knowing how extremely difficult it is to kill.
After releasing the formaldehyde gas into the facility for three days, they then tested for signs of
live Bacillus subtilis, and found none. Therefore, they concluded, the deadly Ebola was gone, too.
And of course, it was.
Now, researchers have demonstrated that colloidal silver – even in very small concentrations — is
also effective against Bacillus subtilis.
You can learn more about the use of colloidal silver for deadly germ warfare pathogens in my
previous article, Colloidal Silver and Biological Warfare.
Colloidal Silver Effective Against “All Tested Microbes”
According to the researchers, concentrations as low as 2-4 ppm demonstrated “pronounced
antibacterial effect” against the seven pathogens tested.
The researchers concluded that, “all seven tested microorganisms were completely inhibited
at the concentration of 2-4 μg/ml of nano silver.” (That’s a mere 2 to 4 ppm colloidal silver.)
While these were admittedly test tube studies, and not human studies, this research demonstrates
the fact that very low concentrations of colloidal silver are indeed able to kill some of today’s most
prevalent and serious disease-causing pathogens, as well as one of the most extremely hardy and
difficult-to-kill of all microbes, Bacillus subtilis.
Not a Peep…
Colloidal silver’s astonishing and clinically proven ability to destroy these well-known disease-
causing pathogens at very low concentrations should be headline news around the world.
But thanks to Big Pharma’s government-enforced lock on prescription antibiotic drugs, you’ve
probably never heard a peep about this study, or about any of the other dozens of clinical studies
on colloidal silver that have amply demonstrated its undeniable infection-fighting benefits.
According to the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths, the rate of infections striking Americans
in hospitals alone is now astronomical:
“The CDC claims that 1.7 million people contract infections in U.S. hospitals each year. In fact,
the truth is several times that number.
The proof is in the data. One of the fastest growing infections is methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus
aureus (MRSA), a superbug that doesn’t respond to most antibiotics.
In 1993, there were fewer than 2,000 MRSA infections in U.S. hospitals. By 2005, the figure had
shot up to 368,000 according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).
By June, 2007, 2.4 percent of all patients had MRSA infections, according to the largest study
of its kind, which was published in the American Journal of Infection Control. That would mean
880,000 victims a year.
That’s from one superbug. Imagine the number of infections from bacteria of all kinds.”
I might add, imagine the number of infections if you included those that have taken place outside
of the hospital environment, as well as inside.
We are talking staggering numbers of annual infections that would make your head spin.
So you’d think that medical authorities would be screaming from the rooftops about the studies
demonstrating colloidal silver to be effective against E. coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans, Salmonella typhimurium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa
and Klebsiela pneumonia.
After all, these six pathogens cause some of the most serious and commonly acquired of all
infections, costing hundreds of billions of dollars per year in health care and leaving tens of
thousands of people dead in their wakes.
But you won’t hear a word on the nightly news about the clinically proven ability of colloidal
silver to kill these pathogens. And that means you have toeducate yourself.
Here’s links to a handful of short articles on colloidal silver and its proven ability to decimate
the six disease-causing pathogens discussed above:
It’s up to you to educate yourself about the remarkable infection-fighting qualities of colloidal
silver against some of today’s most common and potentially deadly pathogens. No one is going
to do it for you. So read the above articles when you get a chance. You can’t count on the
news media to tell you. And you certainly can’t count on Big Pharma.

(TRFW News) Emotional responses play an important role in our stress levels says Judy Moskowitz, PhD, UCSF Osher Center researcher. A research project completed by Moskowitz tested positive emotional skill building in teens manage stress. (3)
The skills taught were noticing positive events, amplifying them, being grateful, practicing mindfulness and positive reappraisal, noting personal strengths, setting attainable goals, and performing acts of kindness. These skills increased positive emotional responses. It was noted that these positive emotions helped the teens cope with stress. This study encouraged that the importance of creating more space in our lives for positive emotions to create emotional balance. (3)
As a therapist, I often describe human emotions in terms of a ladder. Our baseline is our normal level of functioning when our life is emotionally balanced. When experiencing stressful events, we climb the ladder moving closer to our crisis response. The further we get up the ladder, the longer it takes us to return to our baseline. When facing traumatic or stressful life events it is important to increase positive emotions and coping techniques at the same frequency to maintain balance and closeness to our baseline.
A national survey completed by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health reports news media may be partly to blame for the stress people are feeling these days. (1)
Out of 2,500 American’s that participated in the study, 1 in 4 reported that they had experiences a “great deal” of stress in the prior month. Out of these stressed-out people, one of the biggest contributors to their daily stress was watching, reading or listening to the news. (1)
Since then, McNaughton-Cassill and other researchers have done several studies showing the emotional response that news coverage can produce. The biggest effect noted results when traumatic events are covered in a sensational way. This is hard to avoid when reading, listening, or watching the news these days. McNaughton-Cassill says, “There is so much more news available, and so many different channels that are competing, that they’re trying harder to be sensational.” (1)
The study also found that “people who exposed themselves to six or more hours of media daily actually reported more acute stress symptoms than did people who were directly exposed” says professor Alison Holman of the University of California, Irvine. (1,2) Holman reports that one reason for this reaction could be that news outlets “take a clip of images and they repeat that same clip over and over and over as they’re talking about what happened.” (1)
Consumer can take steps to protect themselves by avoiding bingeing on news after traumatic events happen in the world. Absorbing every detail about a negative event does not aid in our survival. (1) It stresses us out! Instead spend more time using skills that increase positive emotional responses and reading positive news sources, such as The Raw Food World News.

(TRFW News) Just 8% of people in Mexico experience depression. This makes Mexico one of the counties that have the world’s lowest incidences of depression. Other countries that join Mexico are China and India. (1)
According to a study published by the Mexican Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy, 53.5 million Mexican’s were living under the poverty line in 2012. This was half a million more than in 2010. It was estimated that another 40 percent are at risk of crossing this line. (2) It is estimated that 29.8 percent of people in India live below the line of poverty. (6) The United States poverty rate is about 15 percent of the population. (7)
American’s living in poverty are more likely to struggle with health problems and depression. Gallup indicates that 31 percent of Americans in poverty say they have been diagnosed with depression as opposed to the 15.8 percent of Americans diagnosed who do not live in poverty. (3)
Many cultures around the globe have been enjoying and cultivating hot spices for years. Chilies, hot peppers, and other spices were used initially for medicinal purposes. They are integral components of Latin American, Asian, Middle Eastern, and African cuisines. The most common spice used world wide is the chili pepper. Currently China, Turkey, Nigeria, Spain and Mexico are the largest producers of chili peppers. (4)
Chili peppers contain Capsaicin, an odorless and flavorless chemical that has been shown to combat health issues such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, joint pain, depression and digestion problems. (4)
Turmeric also known as curcumin has been shown to be another safe and effective way of managing depression. A research project performed at the Department of Pharmacology, Government Medical College, Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India studied the impact of turmeric given to patients already diagnosed with major depressive disorder. The study reported that Curcumin and Prozac were equivalent in their effectiveness of treating depression. Curcumin comes without side effects of suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders. There are also a wide range of other benefits to consuming curcumin such as it’s neuroprotective properties that in some cases help restore brain functioning. (5)
Eating more spices such as chilies and turmeric may help American’s increase feelings of positive well-being and combat depression. It is time for American’s to start spicing up our menu’s and when times are difficult, stress levels are high and emotions are low seek out cuisines that incorporate these mood boosting spices.

I bet you freaked out just a little bit when you read the title right? Megan? Leaving the anti-vaccination movement? Sorry to disappoint you. Someone would have to prove to me that God does not exist, I would have to switch religions, and someone would have to conduct a study showing vaccines are safe, effective, and do not have adverse reactions. To be perfectly honest though, I really don’t like these labels. I don’t vaccinate, but I respect your right to do otherwise. Is there a pro-parental rights movement? If so, sign me up for that one.
Needless to say there’s a new blogger on the scene who’s written a fairly popular post about why she left the anti-vaccination movement. Surprisingly, I found her tone of voice refreshing. She seems nice and she’s super cute too. She’s wearing a red dress on her home page and it made me want to go out and get a hot picture of myself in a red dress too. Alas’ I am a mom and the last time I wore a red dress was a Christmas nightgown I got from my Grandma when I was seven. She’s dead and so is that nightgown.
Regardless, I’d really like to be her friend (I wonder if she has friends who don’t vaccinate). However, I think all friendships should start off on the right foot, which is why I feel like we need to talk about this post.
As a mother, I haven’t given vaccinations to thousands of children, let alone my own. My mom is a nurse. My sister is an educator who is rocking the “stay at home mama movement” like me. My other sister is a chiropractor with a degree in biology. My husband is a physician with a degree in biology and a minor in chemistry. I just have a law degree. Nothing special. Just a little something I picked up to help me read, write, research, and think critically. Although my mom vaccinated us on what was a much smaller schedule when I was younger, she regrets that decision and refuses to give vaccinations now. To be perfectly honest, no one in our family vaccinates. We can’t…now that we know what we know.
I have no idea what pediatric nurse practitioners learn in school. What I do know is that physicians learn next to nothing about vaccines. They are told to give them and shown a picture of a child in an iron lung or a kid with measles in a third-world country. They take immunology of course, but that is not the same as vaccinology. Despite their training, doctors (and scientists) know very little about the immune system which is why there is no medical cure for any chronic autoimmune disease. This should comfort us all.
Pediatricians of course, learn how to give vaccinations. They have to order these expensive vaccines with expiration dates and if you don’t vaccinate, they’re out money…lots and lots of money. They’re also out state excise taxes and insurance reimbursements. They are not trained to acknowledge or recognize vaccine injuries nor could they give you any drug to cure your child should they experience an adverse reaction. They didn’t learn any of this in their immunology class nor did they learn how any of the ingredients vaccines contain affect the immune system. To your surprise, they didn’t pour through the clinical trials or post-licensure studies. Very few have even read the package inserts because vaccines are presumed safe right?
Nurses are excellent at giving vaccinations. Seriously, they have a great technique (minus that one nurse who accidentally permanently injured my mom’s shoulder with a flu shot jab). They know how to store, prepare, and administer them. Most of the time this is done correctly, but I have never met a nurse who has had more training on vaccinations than a physician. Have you?
In Kid Nurse’s post she basically states that she took a pro-vaccine stance because there was no evidence to support that vaccines cause autism or shattered immune systems, because the small pox vaccine eradicated small pox, because a measles outbreak occurred in her area, she has a great uncle who is in a wheelchair because of polio, and she watched a 1-month old baby fight for its life from pertussis.
All of these are perfectly valid emotional reasons not to vaccinate. However, I think if you’re going to get on your camel and make a journey to the “other side, “of the desert, you should probably do so on accurate assumption. And, since I miss taking tests, let’s do this true/false style:
Small pox was eradicated by the vaccine. False. Small pox had greatly declined before the vaccine, increased after the vaccine in westernized countries, and was effectively eradicated in third-world countries due to the surveillance and containment quarantine program. The small pox vaccine was actually flawed, deadly, and ineffective, killing many and inflicting even more with serious adverse reactions. Small pox eventually exterminated itself when people had access to clean water, good food, clean living conditions, and proper hygiene. (For a very well-referenced book on the history of small pox, read this. Check out the package insert for the small pox vaccine here.)
Immunizations and vaccinations are interchangeable terms. False. Guys, we have got to stop throwing around the terms “immunization” and vaccination as if they’re synonymous. Immunization is the process by which a person becomes immune to a disease. Vaccination does not guarantee immunity and any immunity given is temporary.
There is supposedly no “causal” connection between vaccines and autism. True. There’s just a whole bunch of studies where children who were vaccinated got autism; a vaccine package insert that listed autism as a potential adverse reaction; court cases won by children who developed autism post-vaccination; studies that link seizures, brain encephalopathy, and gut disorders to vaccines and studies that link seizures, gut disorders, and brain encephalopathy to autism; a vaccine removed from the market because it caused brain damage in children (i.e. autism & DPT), studies on the ingredients in vaccines that cause autism, and a whole bunch of empirical data that is super important unless…it pertains to autism.
The best way to protect a baby from pertussis is to vaccinate. False. Many people decide to vaccinate after they see a child injured from pertussis. Many people decide not to vaccinate because they have seen a child injured from the pertussis vaccine. These are both emotional arguments. The truth of the matter is that babies would be protected from many diseases if mothers acquired lifetime immunity via natural exposure and subsequently passed protective antibodies to their babies. Vaccines destroy this passive immunity and put our infants at risk. However, since neither the vaccine nor pertussis give lifetime immunity we now give ineffective, untested, dangerous, “Category C” Tdap vaccines to pregnant women.
That aside, as reported in 2012 by every major news outlet and confirmed by the CDC, the Dtap vaccine is ineffective and wanes over time which is why we see pertussis outbreaks occurring in almost exclusively vaccinated populations, why those vaccinated are becoming asymptomatic carriers for the disease, and why “the number of reported pertussis cases have been steadily increasing since the 1980s.” Other news sources have reported that the pertussis bacteria is becoming resistant to the vaccine and that B. parapertussis might actually be to blame for some of the outbreaks. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, even after five doses of Dtap a person’s chance of acquiring pertussis increases by 42% each year.
So, a vaccine gives us temporary (if any) immunity, with junk ingredients, and a chance of adverse reactions like eczema, bronchitis, respiratory infections, encephalopathy, cough (which I find ironic), and SIDS. No thanks. There are better way to protect ourselves and our children from pertussis.
Polio is scary. False…unless you actually had polio. Believe it or not, polio is asymptomatic in 95% of people who actually get it; and prior to polio vaccine licensure, anything with paralysis lasting longer than 24 hours would have yielded a polio diagnosis. Aseptic and viral meningitis, Coxsackie virus, hand foot mouth, transverse myelitis, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, Syphilis, DDT, arsenic, and lead poisoning etc. were all diagnosed as polio prior to the vaccine. Seriously, you could play dead and get a polio diagnosis.
After vaccine licensure, diagnostic criteria changed to make the vaccine look more effective. The 220, 365 cases of non-paralytic polio that occurred between 1960 and 1992 were now labeled “aseptic meningitis.” This is just one of many examples. Not to mention that the only cases of polio recorded between 1973 and 2000 were caused by the vaccine. So we should all ask ourselves, did our dear friend, neighbor, or relative with polio actually have polio? If they did have polio, was it caused by the vaccine? Are they in a wheel-chair? If so, was it due to the barbaric methods used by the medical profession to treat polio? While we’re at it, does our dear friend, neighbor, or relative have cancer? If so, was it caused by the polio vaccine?
True/false aside, here are some really good reasons to leave the “anti-vaccination movement:”
Double-blind, inert/saline placebo-controlled clinical trials show vaccines are safe. None have been done to date.
Studies show that vaccinated children are healthier than unvaccinated children. No large-scale study in the United States has been done to date.
Studies show vaccines do not have adverse reactions. Currently, all vaccines have possible adverse reactions.
Studies show vaccines do not cause any health conditions, including the ones they’re designed to prevent.
All vaccines can and have caused the very diseases they’re designed to prevent. Studies show the herd immunity applies to vaccinations. It’s been presumed that herd immunity applies to vaccines.
Studies show vaccines actually prevent disease. Currently, not a single study to date has proven this. This hypothesis is dependent upon the assumption that every single person would have gotten the disease if they weren’t vaccinated and that vaccinations are the only way to prevent disease.
Vaccines gives lifetime immunity. Currently, not a single vaccine offers lifetime immunity.
And my favorite…science proves vaccines do a better job at preventing disease than my God-given immune system. If you don’t believe in God, “studies show biology missed something when it gave every man and animal on the planet an immune system.”
Clearly, I’m not taking a journey any time soon. Vaccines or not, I hope we can be friends. I’ve found this red dress I’m just dying to try on.

(NaturalNews) The neurodegenerative effects of fluoride are well documented in the scientific literature, and yet this toxic byproduct of industrial manufacturing continues to get dumped into the water supplies of almost every major city in the U.S. without consent. And while it may take a little more time before a critical mass of folks finally wakes up and puts a stop to this mass poisoning of the public, there is a way you and your family can better avoid the toxic effects of fluoride today through proper nutrition.
Publishing their findings in a recent issue of Pharmacognosy Magazine, a research team out of India observed that regular consumption of turmeric, a spice commonly used in Indian and Asian cuisine, helps to protect the mammalian brain against fluoride poisoning. Having previously uncovered the pathways through which fluoride induces harmful neuro degenerative changes in the brain, the team from Mohanlal Sukhadia University found that turmeric both neutralizes existing fluoride and protects against additional fluoride.
Testing the effects of turmeric in mice, the researchers observed that curcumin, the most well-known nutritive compound in turmeric, produces powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity that protects against multiple forms of cell damage, including singlet oxygen, hydroxyl radical and superoxide radical damage. Curcumin also helps spur the production of glutathione, the body’s “master antioxidant” that studies have shown plays a primary role in guarding against oxidative stress.
Knowing that fluoride induces both neurotoxic and neurodegenerative effects on brain tissue, particularly that of the hippocampus and cerebral cortex, the team tested the effects of fluoride alone, fluoride in combination with turmeric, turmeric alone and a control on mice that were randomly divided into each of these four groups. All the mice consumed their respective regimens for 30 days before undergoing analysis.
At the end of the study period, it was observed that mice in the fluoride group, which were given 120 parts per million (ppm) of fluoride in water without curcumin, experienced significant increases in malondialdehyde (MDA) activity — MDA is a recognized marker of oxidative stress. Mice consuming the same amount of fluoride along with 30 milligrams per kilogram of body weight (mg/kg), however, experienced a marked reduction in MDA, revealing the toxicity-mediating power of turmeric.
“[Fluoride] may cross the blood brain barrier, accumulate in mice hippocampal neuron cell bodies and initiates cascade of reactions which increases the oxidative stress that causes an increase in MDA content of brain tissue, which is an end product of LPO [lipid peroxidation],” wrote the authors.
“On the other hand, a distinctive decrease in MDA level was observed after [curcumin] treatment, compared to group treated with [fluoride]… [because] this phytochemical is capable of quenching oxygen free radicals such as superoxide anions and hydroxyl radicals, which are important for the initiation of LPO.”
Concerning the general toxicity of fluoride, the team is convinced, based on more than a decade of extensive research, that the chemical very clearly collects and accumulates in brain tissue. Similar to the way that monosodium glutamate (MSG) over-excites brain neurons and essentially kills them, fluoride likewise produces an excitotoxic effect that can have lasting health consequences.
“Fluoride (F) is probably the first inorganic ion which drew attention of the scientific world for its toxic effects and now the F toxicity through drinking water is well-recognized as a global problem,” explains the study. “Health effect reports on F exposure also include various cancers, adverse reproductive activities, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases.”

To stop receiving these emails:
It’s common knowledge in the natural health world that pharmaceuticals often (if not always) do more harm than good. It’s also clear that foods, herbs, and other natural sources can offer similar benefits without those nasty side effects. Once again, our beliefs have been affirmed by science:
A recent study published in Phytotherapy Research says that not only is turmeric effective at treating depression, it may even be more effective than some of the most common anti-depressant drugs currently on the market.
While previous studies have indicated the effectiveness of turmeric (curcumin) in treating serious depression, this study was the first randomized controlled clinical trial of its kind.
Researchers with the Department of Pharmacology of Government Medical College in Bhavnagar, Gujarat, India compared the effects of turmeric and Prozac (fluoxetine), both used together and individually, in 60 patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD).
According to GreenMedInfo.com, the researchers used the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale to measure their results:
“We observed that curcumin was well tolerated by all the patients. The proportion of responders as measured by the HAM-D17 scale was higher in the combination group (77.8%) than in the fluoxetine [Prozac] (64.7%) and the curcumin (62.5%) groups; however, these data were not statistically significant (P = 0.58).
Interestingly, the mean change in HAM-D17 score at the end of six weeks was comparable in all three groups (P = 0.77). This study provides first clinical evidence that curcumin may be used as an effective and safe modality for treatment in patients with MDD without concurrent suicidal ideation or other psychotic disorders.”
