Detox With Lemon

October 23rd, 2007

Inspired by The Tao of Detox, by Daniel Reid (Inner Traditions, 2006). http://www.care2.com/

It doesn’t get much easier than this: when you need help combating the ill effects of certain foods or drinks, pollution, stress, smoking, and more, just open the fridge! Yes, one of our most powerful allies is something we commonly cook with–the tart and zesty Lemon has been used for centuries as a potent detoxifier. But what makes it so helpful? Find out the surprising science behind Lemon for detox, and get our most popular lemony detox tea formula below.

An overly acidic system has been linked to a host of health woes, so anything that helps us to alkalize is a good thing. That’s where Lemon comes in. But according to Daniel Reid’s The Tao of Detox, Lemon is also the only food in the world that carries a negative molecular charge, making it “anionic,” just like the digestive enzymes in our bodies (such as hydrochloric acid). Surprisingly, other citrus fruits aren’t anionic–only fresh Lemon.

Is there a homeopathic medicine for trigeminal neuralgia?

October 23rd, 2007

Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) is the pain caused by a compression of the trigeminal nerve, the largest of the twelve nerves in the cranium. The trigeminal nerve is primarily responsible for sensation in the face and one of its three branches is responsible for the movement of the jaw as well.

One of the major causes of trigeminal Neuralgia is the erosion of the nerve sheath which is actually a loss of the myelin covering of the nerve. Some other causes may include compression by an adjacent blood vessel, physical damage by dental or other surgeries, genetic predisposition or rarely, a tumor or multiple sclerosis. Abnormalities usually occur at the inner nerve fibers that carry the sensation.

The trigeminal nerve is similar to other sensory nerves like the Sciatic Nerve in the spinal region and the pain caused by compression can be as excruciating as Sciatica. Most of the conventional treatments approach TN in a similar fashion as Sciatic Nerve treatment.
