Summertime and the living is easy, except it gets hot. Some places get really hot but not so humid, others get hot and humid. Either way, it's a time for refreshing cool or cold drinks. It's possible to boost your health, detoxify, and alkalize while drinking a refreshing beverage.
Here are five tips for refreshing healthy summer time beverages:
(1) You can have a cooling mint drink to replace the classic alcohol spiked mint julep. This recipe combines mint with cumin powder to offer antiseptic, cleansing, and detoxification qualities. The mint is good for digestion, nausea, and morning sickness.
Gather up 1.5 cups of fresh organic or home grown mint leaves and rinse them off. Place them into a blender with one-half cup of purified water. Add one teaspoon of cumin powder and a half teaspoon of Indian or Hawaiian black salt, which you may have to obtain from a specialty store. Add three to four teaspoons of fresh lemon juice.
Turn the blender on and blend into a paste. Take the paste and mix it with water at a one-to-three ratio, or one-fourth paste to three-fourths water. Add raw sugar, Stevia, or honey according to your sweet tooth. Strain if necessary and chill or add ice cubes. Read more…

Maybe you've seen those commercials where a doctor is working on a construction crew, then it shows the construction worker in the pharmacy looking for the right medicine, telling you not to do your doctor's job because you wouldn't want him doing yours. It's quite a ridiculous analogy really, insinuating that there's a similarity in a doctor running a jack hammer, and you taking care of your own body, like that's someone else's job. No one else can maintain your body or has to live with the consequences of how you do so, but you. Duh.
In a similar tone, there was recently a story out of England about a woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer, had the traditional treatments, but then declined the follow-up pharmaceuticals in favor of managing her health with nutrition. There seems to be genuine surprise at her success. Which is.... surprising. What's the big shocker? There are numerous books, stories and websites out there documenting the success of "alternative" treatments to cancer. Before the age of Big Pharma, "alternative" treatments such as through diet, exercise, and supplementation, were the cancer treatments, and there was less cancer then too. Read more....

Scientists announce amazing findings: chocolate offers huge protection from heart disease and stroke
All regular readers of NaturalNews know that researchers have discovered chocolate (especially the organic, not junked up with additives and sugar type) contains phytochemicals which appear to promote good health. But no one has had much of a clue about the specifics of some of those benefits on the cardiovascular system -- until now. Scientists at the European Society of Cardiology Congress currently underway in Paris just announced that chocolate provides huge protection from heart disease as well as stroke.
That's great news because, despite the billions of dollars spent on mainstream medicine's drugs and surgical interventions, the battle against cardiovascular disease obviously needs some serious help. Currently, the World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that by 2030 nearly 23.6 million people will die yearly from heart disease.
So just imagine the fluttering of hearts in Big Pharma offices if they found a no side effect, easy to produce drug that actually worked to lower the risk of developing heart disease in the first place by almost 40 percent. The demand and profits to be made would be enormous. While there is no such medication, it turns out that eating chocolate regularly appears to accomplish what pills can't. Read more…

Five-year-old girl dies after being given just twice the normal dose of over-the-counter cough medicine
By Ethan A. Huff
Parents who administer over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicines to their children need to be extremely aware of the risks involved, as these often bright and colorful syrups could end up killing them. This is exactly what happened to young Kimber Michelle Brown of Durango, Colorado, who recently took a little bit too much cough syrup and ended up dead just a few hours later.
The U.K.'s Telegraph reports that Kimber had been staying with her grandmother when the overdose occurred. According to Kimber's father, the young girl apparently started to complain about leg pain, cramps, and muscle spasms in the hours before her death. Not long after, she collapsed and was unable to be revived.
A toxicology report later revealed that Kimber had 96 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) of dextromethorphan, the active ingredient in most cough medicines, in her blood. The upper limit of this drug for adults is 40 ng/ml. Kimber also had 490 ng/ml of cetirizine, the active ingredient in the allergy medication Zyrtec, in her blood as well. The upper limit for cetirizine is between 271 and 352 ng/ml. Read more…

Renowned heart surgeon Dr. Dwight Lundell recently stepped forward to expose how embracing the high cholesterol myth has been wrong and the harm that has resulted, stating that the recommendations to lower cholesterol and severely restrict fat intake "are no longer scientifically or morally defensible."
Dr. Lundell explained that inflammation in our arterial walls is the real culprit for heart disease and stated that "the injury and inflammation in our blood vessels is caused by the low fat diet recommended for years by mainstream medicine."
"Simply stated," said Dr. Lundell, "without inflammation being present in the body, there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel."
In addition, said Dr. Lundell, "The long-established dietary recommendations have created epidemics of obesity and diabetes, the consequences of which dwarf any historical plague in terms of mortality, human suffering and dire economic consequences."1. Read more…
