Finding remedies to health issues right in your kitchen

As I’ve gotten older, I begin hearing about more and more people suffering from cancer, kidney disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, chronic pains, etc.  I myself suffer with high blood pressure and now have a slight problem with my kidney and now, I’m having knee pains.  I take 2 pharmaceuticals’ for HBP, and they just gave me something that I can take for the knee pain (Aleve works for me but not good for kidney). So, the older I get, I become more and more concerned about my health.  My mom was an 18 year breast cancer survivor when she suddenly passed away at the age of 63; I’ll never know exactly what killed her because there was no autopsy performed.  Cancer runs on my dad’s side of the family; he died from the disease in 2010 at the age of 73.

I hate taking pills.  I hate going to the pharmacy getting refills and having to make sure I take them every day.  I know there’s got to be a better way to maintain my health NATURALLY.  So I began researching and reading and learned that there are a number of natures “health care products” right in my kitchen!
Lemons.  Lemon lowers blood pressure and increases the levels of HDL (good cholesterol).  It’s also an anti-carcinogenic which lower the rates of colon, prostate, and breast cancer.
Garlic and Onions.  Both reduce the risk of cancer and heart attacks
Turmeric.  This is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.  When combined with cauliflower, it has shown to prevent prostate cancer and stop the growth of existing prostate cancer.  In laboratory tests Turmeric prevented breast cancer from spreading to the lungs in mice.
This is just a few examples of preventive health care that’s found right in our kitchens.  For additional information, click here to listen to our radio broadcast on the subject.
Here’s to your health!
