What organ suffers the most from a poor diet? The answer may surprise you.

In many ways, healthy eating has become somewhat trendy as people are starting to understand that they do indeed have control over their own health and are ready to take responsibility for their lives.

Dr. Edward Group shares four health benefits of the practice of sun gazing.
I recently saw the feature length documentary, Eat the Sun, and was inspired to explore the practice of sungazing.
The practice of sungazing closely resembles its name. At sunrise and/or sunset, when the sun is closest to the earth, sungazers stand barefoot on the earth and look directly at the sun for 10 seconds. Every day, 10 seconds are added and some sungazers eventually reach a duration of 44 minutes. Read more
To make your feet stronger and avoid foot problem, try going barefoot more often, says Jessica Dolores.
Ever wondered why your feet are killing you, even if you don’t have a sprain, or any sign of injury? It could be because you’ve been wearing closed shoes the whole day, and your feet have no chance to “breathe.” A new study by Harvard University researchers Nicholas Holowka and Daniel E. Liebermann showed that flat foot, which hampers movement because of reduced stiffness in the longitudinal arch (LA), is rare among people who go barefoot regularly. Read more

Poor circulation is often the result of living a sedentary lifestyle. A very easy and natural way to get your circulation going once again is to boost your activity level.

Here are some hiccup cures that work, but no one wants to try. Breathing into a paper bag, swallowing sugar, and sipping vinegar are some of the weird ways to get rid of hiccups.
For most of us, hiccups are merely a temporary and occassionally embarrassing inconvenience that passes within minutes.
But in a small minority of cases, they can last for days — even months. Last year, prolonged hiccups were among the 22,000 ‘potentially trivial’ incidents seen in A&E, according to NHS statistics.
While this might initially sound like a waste of hospital time, such hiccupping may indicate a deeper medical problem — which is why the NHS recommends people seek medical advice if their hiccups last for more than 48 hours. Read more
Being dehydrated caa make you feel sick, tired, and grumpy, says Dr. Joseph Mercola.
Have you ever been so busy you neglected to drink even a sip or two of water for an extended period, then suddenly realized you were incredibly thirsty and in need of a long drink? By replenishing your body’s water supply when it tells you you’re thirsty, you can often stave off dehydration. In fact, typically your body’s physiologic thirst mechanism is triggered before you’re dehydrated, giving you a chance to rehydrate before it’s too late. Read more
The vaccine industry is worried sick, so to speak, about a natural remedy that makes their products unnecessary.
Here’s why vaccines are unnecessary: They are merely given purportedly to immunize against or shall it be said ‘prevent’ certain diseases, most of which are rarely fatal in first world countries. These are mostly transitory viral conditions. There are safer, less invasive answers. Wild oregano oil (p73) is the key alternative. If it is from a truly wild source, then, it can be taken aggressively: as much as needed. Yet, for the typically immunized conditions only a modest amount is necessary, for instance, for chicken pox, measles, and mumps: like a few drops several times daily. Wild oregano oil can also be rubbed topically on the feet, shins, and upper chest. It can even be used topically on newborns and infants. Babies and toddlers can take a tiny amount internally, like a drop or two twice daily. In this regard it is far safer than all standard drugs, like antibiotics, cough syrups, and even infant vitamins. – Dr Cass Ingram Researcher, Speaker & Author of 34 booksRead more
