Ultraviolet Light Treats Influenza?
The healing power of ultraviolet light (UV) has flown under the radar for decades. Yet, it’s one of the most powerful detoxifying agents known to man. It kills bacteria and viruses and can be used in a clinical setting. The therapeutic benefits of light have been known for millennia. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, believed light was essential to balance the body and emotions. And there is good reason why, during the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, medics discovered that severely ill patients had hugely better recovery rates when they were nursed outside and had regular exposure to sunlight.1 You see, UV r...

We’ve known for years that platelets are the part of your blood that’s responsible for clotting. But we’re only beginning to learn about their powerful rejuvenating power and their potential to heal. Platelets are your body’s “first responders.” They initiate a cascade of healing that’s 10 times more powerful than any drug available today. In fact, it’ll be centuries before Big Pharma will be able to come up with a drug that can come close to doing what platelets can do. Platelets work in two ways. First, they contain hundreds of growth factors. These proteins are criti...

When Your Doctor Prescribes A Vibrator For Your Aging Vagina
Doctors have been adding a new tool to the arsenal of how they restore the sex lives of menopausal and post-menopausal women: the humble vibrator. With the onset of menopause, a decrease in the production of hormones causes vaginal tissue to get thinner and drier. Vaginal muscles can also atrophy, leading to painful sex ― a problem for half of all menopausal and post-menopausal women, according to the National Institutes of Health. But the solution might be as simple as a vibrating piece of silicon. Vibrators that are used internally stimulate pelvic blood flow, which increases vaginal mois...
