Microgreens are often confused with sprouts, but they’re not exactly the same. Microgreens are often harvested one or two weeks after germination when the plant is one to three inches tall and its first “true leaves” have emerged. When ready to harvest, the plant is snipped off just above the root.
(NaturalHealth365) Alzheimer’s disease, a neurodegenerative condition that impairs memory and cognitive abilities, currently affects over 6 million Americans – and causes the death of 83,000 people every year. Unfortunately, rates of the disease are soaring, with the Alzheimer’s Association predicting that this number will climb to 13 million by the year 2050.
Often mentioned in the Bible as a sign of peace and prosperity,1 the fig tree is so ancient, remnants of the fruit have been discovered in Neolithic excavations sites circa 5000 B.C.2 Thought to be native to Western Asia or Egypt, figs were cultivated very early throughout the Middle East and Europe and finally reached England and China by the mid-1600s. Spanish missionaries planted orchards in California in 1769, where they still thrive today.3
Belonging to the mulberry family, there is a plethora of fig tree varieties.4 Most of them are small at 10 to 30 feet and thrive in warm, dry climates. Pollinated by a tiny wasp, fig trees never blossom because the flowers are on the inside, producing dozens and sometimes hundreds of miniscule seeds that give figs their unique, crunchy texture.5
Considered exotic in some areas of the world, figs are sweet and juicy when ripe. They can be red, yellow, purple-skinned or green-striped,6 each with their own unique flavor. But before they reach optimal ripeness, figs are gummy with “latex,” which contains serious skin irritants, so protective measures for workers are sometimes mandated for fig production operations.7
Dried figs are sometimes roasted and ground as a coffee substitute or converted into alcohol as a liqueur or tobacco flavoring.8
Figs are quite perishable and should be refrigerated if not eaten within a few days. They should be placed in the coldest part of your fridge, and will stay fresh for several days.9 Like apples, figs are a great snack by themselves, but can also be added (peeled or unpeeled) to many recipes. It’s interesting that the seeds only add to the satisfying, tasty chewiness. Best at the firm-to-tender stage, the riper they are, the more antioxidants they provide.10
Health Benefits of Figs
Figs are high in fiber and are a good source of several essential minerals, including magnesium, manganese, calcium (which promotes bone density) and potassium (which helps lower blood pressure), as well as vitamins, principally K and A, as well as folate and choline.11
The nutritional value of figs by weight increases when they’re dried, and they also keep for a longer period of time. A 100-gram serving of fresh figs, for instance, provides 35 milligrams (mg) of calcium, but the same amount of dried figs has 162 mg of calcium.12
Keep in mind, though, at the same time, 100 grams of dried figs contain nearly 48 grams of total sugars — 10 more grams than the maximum amount of added sugars recommended for adult males for a whole day — while raw figs contain just a little over 16 grams. Therefore, it’s important to monitor how many figs you eat if you consume them dried.
Whether fresh or dried, figs contain powerful antioxidants that neutralize free radicals in your body and help fight disease.13 Figs also supply healthy amounts of dietary fiber, which keeps your digestive system regulated and may have a positive effect on weight management. According to one study, the fruits with the most fiber content include apples, dates, figs, pears and prunes, and there was a 34 percent reduction in breast cancer risk among women who consumed the most fruit fiber, compared to those who ate the least.14,15
Traditional medicine around the world has made use of figs as poultices on tumors, warts16 and wounds. The fruit and leaves have been pulverized and added to gargles to relieve sore throats.17
In some cultures, fig leaves are nearly as important as the fruit itself because of the unique health-related benefits they offer. This includes their ability to regulate blood sugar levels, since research has shown they contain properties that can actually reduce the amount of insulin needed by diabetics.18
As mentioned, despite their benefits, you should consume figs in moderation because they contain fructose (sugars), which may be harmful to your health in excessive amounts.

Studies Done on Figs
Natural phytochemicals with potent cytotoxic properties isolated from the ficus carica, as well as soybeans, were identified in one study as having inhibitory effects on the proliferation of various cancer cell lines.20
In another study, the fig variety Dottato was examined to assess its unique antioxidant, cancer-fighting, and phototoxic activity on melanoma cells. Data obtained indicated that this fig cultivar may be an excellent source of bioactive compounds such as phenolics, coumarins and fatty acids. This study offered a new perspective in developing other fig-containing formulations potentially useful in treating nonmelanoma skin cancers.21
Compared to other foods, figs were found to be one of the densest in phenolic antioxidants and nutrients, mostly fiber, in a study on the amount and quality of phenol antioxidants in dried and fresh fruits. Figs and dried plums had the highest nutrient score among dried fruits in trials of several individuals consuming them with carbonated beverages.
Scientists reported that fig antioxidants can enrich lipoproteins in plasma, protect them from subsequent oxidation, produce a significant increase in plasma antioxidant capacity for four hours after consumption and overcome the oxidative stress of consuming high-fructose corn syrup in a carbonated soft drink. The study conclusion was that:22
Figs are dense in phenol antioxidants and nutrients, especially fiber
They’re potent antioxidants (when they’re eaten)
Dried fruit makes up less than 1 percent of the fruits consumed by most Americans
Dried fruits should be eaten more often because of these findings
Scientists studying the effect of fresh fig “latex” on a stomach cancer cell line found that the latex acted as an anticancer substance without any toxic effect on normal cells. In another trial, dried figs were weighted down into 1 ml of distilled water for three months. After the water was drained, it was found that fig tree latex powder still retained its anticancer properties. Results showed that figs, dried or fresh, are possible subjects for helping treat stomach cancer.23
(NaturalHealth365) The foods that you eat not only impact your waistline and your physical health, but they also affect the way you think and feel. You’ve probably always heard that you are what you eat – and it’s true, what you put in your body matters.
But, according to a review published in the March 2021 issue of Frontiers of Nutrition, it’s what you feed your brain that really counts.
Your “second brain” is smarter than you think
Your gastrointestinal system plays an integral role in not only your physical health but in your mood and mental health as well. This is because scientists have found that neural tissue doesn’t only exist in our brains. It lines our gut as well.

An Holistic Health Adviser and cancer researcher, Amanda Mary Jewell, was asked to return to England and answer to the claims of the MHRA (FDA) for promoting the healthful properties of these two seeds. Just search Youtube & find the many folk whose cancer was indeed cured by B17 found in these seeds. Note the Cancer Act where it was made illegal to treat cancer by means other than the mainstream three offerings that incidentally have a very low success rate. Three percent for chemo. Search our site for articles. You should be aware that something is very wrong here with this picture. I’ve posted below this item, being circulated on Youtube, with further video links to Youtube postings that are longer and give more background information on Amanda Mary. Please watch and share as she has asked. It has become a crime for free citizens to locate alternative means in addressing their own health issues. To boot, holistic health practitioners, Medical Doctors included are being murdered at an alarming rate.
After receiving an email from the MRHA (FDA) now making threats for me to return to the UK within 14 days for promoting apple seeds and apricot kernels. Please see below:

I was so pleased to hear from you about your regulations and laws of the land!
I would like to draw your attention to those actually doing harm!
You work for the harmaceuticals that kill people daily, your organization stops anyone getting well. I guess you believe that you talking to me about an apricot kernel or apple seed known as B17 will change the world. Columbia is a long way to fly for a chat, your coffee sucks and is not worth the flight.
I am not in your jurisdiction of murdering people by Chemo or Radiation.
Feel free to send me a post card from dull and controlled England.
Please note that there are no payment options on the website! Therefore they are not for sale!
PS I will be sharing this information across the world via my large networking data base!!! I will ensure this is now sent to over 1.5 million and will continue to share your interest in apple and apricot seeds, really, you are a jobs worth, great work satisfaction, you must feel so proud. Karma Wendy, Karma.

Peekay Truth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZwfx… Mary@healingoracle.net Published on 15 Apr 2016 http://healingoracle.net/ Amanda Mary Jewell is under fire from the MHRA for allegedly selling vitamin B17 in the form of apple seeds or apricot kernels. She is being charged with several offences and the MHRA is trying to make an example of her holistic methods and knowledge. *** Let it be known that there is NO payment options on the website so there are technically NO products for sale. She is being assaulted for claiming that B17 fights cancer. It does, and she is merely stating a fact. They (The MHRA) have to understand that the truth about an important vitamin must become public knowledge and the charges against her are unfounded and only in place in order to make an example of her to other holistic practitioners. A court proceeding will take place in the United Kingdom, and Mary will be unable to attend as she is not in the country. A judge will make a decision and we have predicted that the proverbial book will be thrown at her. The MHRA needs to back off and they need to back off now. If they do not, they are admitting to backing up an evil empire of conglomerate medicine and supporting an industry KILLING MILLIONS IN PLAIN SIGHT. They are supporting the wrong people. PERIOD. Please pass this on and share with everyone. ESPECIALLY OTHERS IN THE HOLISTIC COMMUNITY. WE ALL NEED TO STAND TOGETHER AND UNITE. NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO LIVE IN FEAR. WE NEED TO TEACH THE WORLD.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which your body destroys your joints and can be terminal. Less than one percent of people with the disease have a spontaneous remission
A former patient of mine tells the story of how she put her RA into remission in two years, using a nutritional protocol and healthy lifestyle changes
By Dr. Mercola
If you or someone you know has rheumatoid arthritis (RA), you’ll want to watch this video. In it, Sarah Allen, who is a former patient of mine, shares how she put rheumatoid arthritis into remission, and it’s a remarkable success story.
Rheumatoid arthritis was a passion of mine while I was still in active practice. I treated over 3,000 patients with this disease. I estimate 80 to 85 percent of them experienced significant recovery, if not remission, like Sarah did.
I ran into Sarah after giving a presentation recently in Orlando, where she happened to be in attendance. After talking to her, I decided we needed to share her important story as it would provide hope for so many who struggle with this disease.
She first came to see me in August of 2003. Even though she was only 28 years old at the time, she’d been experiencing symptoms of RA for about three or four years.
“I thought I was very healthy,’ she says. ‘I was young. I was a competitive triathlete. I believed I had a pretty good diet. So, I didn’t really understand why I was experiencing so much pain in my fingers and in my feet.
I had migrating pain, and a lot of tendonitis issues all throughout my body. It took the Western doctors a long time to diagnose me. It took about three years going to different doctors before they knew what was wrong.
It didn’t show in my blood; I didn’t have the RA factor, and my C-reactive protein (CRP) levels were normal. But it showed up on an X-ray.'”
Hallmark Signs of RA
One of the hallmark symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis is pain in your hands and/or feet. It tends to affect the proximal joints more so than the distal ones, i.e. the joints closest to your palm, for example, opposed to the joints further out in the fingers.
So, if you have pain there, especially if it’s symmetrical (affecting the same joints on both hands or feet), then almost by definition you have rheumatoid arthritis or an RA variant. It really doesn’t matter what the blood work shows.
RA is far less common than osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease, which is not as crippling. It’s actually easy to treat degenerative arthritis if you understand the components of a healthy lifestyle.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a far more complex disease. It’s an autoimmune disease; your body is destroying itself, and it can be terminal — some people have even been known to commit suicide from the crippling pain.
It’s quite notable that less than one percent of people with the disease have a spontaneous remission. Some disability occurs in 50 to 70 percent of people within five years after onset of the disease, and half will stop working within 10 years.
RA Is Typically Treated with Toxic Drugs
Traditional care also doesn’t have a lot of good hope for RA sufferers. All they do is ameliorate or treat the symptoms — typically using highly toxic drugs, including prednisone, methotrexate, and drugs that interfere with tumor necrosis factor, like Enbrel.
This is why I’m so passionate about spreading this information because as Sarah can attest, there’s an alternative, and this drug-free strategy really works. You don’t have to suffer needlessly in a conventional treatment model.
“Grounding, or earthing, refers to connecting electrically with the Earth. A growing body of research is finding numerous health benefits as a result of the physical body being grounded”.
I’ve just begun exploring this topic & so far have seen a few testimonies of healing and improved health, arthritis gone, back pain gone and so on. Check out this vid or if you are short of time search Youtube for shorter clips on topic. Plus I’ve added more vids below. Indigenous people have done this since forever, way ahead of the so called ‘civilized’ and as always given little to no credit. It’s mentioned in the doco that the man speaking, as a boy, recalled a Cheyenne woman telling him to take his shoes off as they ‘make you sick’. Indigenous people were & are connected to the land in more ways than most of us realize. And our so called modern lifestyle has disconnected us all from the earth in more ways than we realize affecting our health. This is definitely worth a watch. EnvirowatchRangitikei
People have healed themselves from cancer using Lipo C. I asked our chemist recently if they stocked it. “Never heard of it”! Seems the Pharmaceutical Industry doesn’t want to know. You’ll find it online. Check out our Cancer pages for success stories with it. Plenty more also on Youtube. EnvirowatchRangitikei

http://www.naturalhealth365.com reveals the essential difference between liposomal encapsulated vitamin C and its oral powder form. In this exclusive interview with Jonathan Landsman and Cindy Nachman, CEO of LivOn Labs – you’ll learn how to absorb more vitamin C to neutralize toxins and eliminate disease.
You’ll also learn about the questionable manufacturing and marketing practices of many vitamin C companies. If you’re looking for a highly effective way to absorb large quantities of vitamin C – be sure to watch this video several times for critical health information and disease prevention.
Matt Monarch has a live raw food show in the US that features on Youtube (his channel at the links here) … I just recently discovered him. The info looks fantastic, especially given all the amazing testimonies I see of all the illnesses cured. At his channel just click on ‘videos’ and you will see them all … MS, cancer, and many more. What also appeals is the use of cooked whole foods as well. It is all about detox he says. Note also, in the cancer testimony, there is mention of the healing power of trees! A very interesting & worthwhile watch. EnvirowatchRangitikei

An excellent exposé here of the reasons why cannabis has been made illegal. For Kiwis, this is local too. If you are new to the fact that cancer is curable without the only mainstream ‘cures’ offered (chemo, radiation & surgery) … or that chemo only works 3% of the time, or that you will live longer with no treatment at all than you will with chemo … then please watch. And visit our Cancer pages for info about other protocols that people have used with success, like our own Anton Kuraia from Northland NZ.
Jonathan Eisen editor of Uncensored Magazine and Vinny Eastwood Host of The Vinny Eastwood Show break down the reasons why Cannabis should be used as a medicine and the death that is being caused by keeping it illegal while drug companies profit from killing people with medical treatments that are not only expensive, but don’t work!
Sodium bicarbonate is probably one of the most useful substances in the world; no wonder the pharmaceutical companies don’t want doctors or anyone else to know much about it. It is essential when treating cancer, kidney and other diseases.
We do not have to fear bicarbonate intake. And in fact, people who live in areas of the world with high amounts of bicarbonate in their drinking waters have a striking decreased mortality rate and a decreased prevalence of disease. Sodium bicarbonate, though often used as a medicine, is unlike pharmaceutical compounds. It is a natural non-toxic substance that does not require clinical trials for an assessment of toxicity. Spring waters contain bicarbonate ions which are coupled mainly with sodium, potassium, calcium or magnesium ions.
A deficiency of bicarbonate ions in the body contributes to a range of chronic diseases and medical conditions.Sodium bicarbonate helps…
I personally don’t garden any more … well not at the moment anyway … I miss it too. Getting your hands in the soil and growing your own food is so rewarding. I learned that fact many years ago. Gardening is also therapeutic. A nurse once told me research corroborates that it is healing (although I’ve not yet researched it myself). It does make sense and years ago I watched a family member recover from her grief at losing a child by losing herself in a flower garden … which turned out to be a very beautiful garden. There’s an analogy there about burying seeds under the earth only to see them, once watered & subjected to the sun’s warmth, sprout and bring forth new life. This is the miracle of gardening, it is so multi-faceted and the rewards so numerous. To even further support the whole idea, (and I did research this one), there are organisms in the soil that are necessary to our gut. An elderly lady told me not that long ago that we are too ‘clean’ … we need to get dirt under our fingernails. Where once we did just that gardening, these microbes would be easily ingested. Now they’re clean washed away. Check out Dr Mercola’s article on this one:
Jordan Rubin (N.M.D., Ph.D.) is another who can testify to this. As a very young man in 1996 he was suffering from Chrohns disease. He had wasted away to a skeleton and almost died. Eventually, after a long road of trial and error and a lot of expense, Jordan regained his health by supplementing the small amount that he could eat with homeostatic soil organisms. His story is miraculous. He has written best-selling books, one of which is called ‘The Maker’s Diet’.
So, having established hopefully by now, at least some of the benefits of gardening, I’ll return to the original point of this post … I know there are folks who are unable to physically dig the soil but here is the beauty of the little known ‘no-dig’ method. I’ve only seen one person in my circle who has tried this method and did have a go a few years back with some success. Anyway, here is a great site with the ‘how tos’ of the no-dig method if you would like to give it a try.
