Posted by on Apr 5, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Used for Thousands of Years, Sweet Marjoram Oil Offers Many Benefits

What Is Sweet Marjoram Oil? Sweet marjoram oil is made from the steam distillation of the flowering tops of the marjoram plant (Origanum marjoram), a cousin of oregano. This yellow-green essential oil has a warm, spicy, woody and camphoraceous scent that reminds you of nutmeg and cardamom. Meanwhile, Spanish marjoram oil, a different type of essential oil also derived from the marjoram plant, has a red-orange hue. Originally native to the Mediterranean regions and North America, today sweet marjoram is widely cultivated for the large-scale...

Posted by on Apr 4, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on 80 Percent of Global Wastewater Released Into Environment Untreated

By Dr. Mercola In 1972, the Clean Water Act1 was passed to regulate pollution discharged into U.S. waterways, and to set standards for surface water. The Act is supposed to ensure clean water for swimming and fishing in the U.S., but after more than four decades of regulation and oversight, waterways are in serious trouble. As tap water is extracted from these waterways, it may test positive for a large assortment of chemicals, including fluoride, radiation, heavy metals, agricultural runoff and disinfection byproducts. Unfortunately,...

Can Magnesium Relieve Your Tinnitus?

Posted by on Apr 4, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Can Magnesium Relieve Your Tinnitus?

By Dr. Mercola Nearly 50 million Americans experience tinnitus, or nearly 15 percent of the U.S. population.1 Tinnitus is the perception of sound when there is no external sound present. Others can’t hear what you’re hearing, and it’s often referred to as “ringing in the ears.” However, the reference to ringing doesn’t exactly ring true, as sufferers may complain of sounds that include hissing, buzzing, whistling or swooshing.2 For many, the condition resolves after a couple of days, but roughly 20 million...

By Dr. Mercola Sepsis1 is a progressive disease process caused by an aggressive, dysfunctional immune response to an infection in the bloodstream.

Sepsis is a common hospital-acquired infection,2,3 but common illnesses such as bronchitis, pneumonia, strep throat or kidney infection...

By Dr. Mercola In March 2017, Representative Virginia Foxx (R-NC) sponsored bill H.R. 1313, the Preserving Employee Wellness Programs Act.

Why Opting for Organic Cotton Matters

Posted by on Apr 3, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Why Opting for Organic Cotton Matters

By Dr. Mercola Cotton clothing has a longstanding history of being all-natural and wholesome. Unfortunately, times have changed, and once you delve behind-the-scenes of the cotton industry, its wholesome image quickly frays around the edges. Most people forget that a vast majority — about 90 to 95 percent1 — of non-organic cotton clothing is made from Monsanto’s genetically engineered (GE) cotton. Organic cotton, grown in a sustainable, non-toxic manner, accounts for a mere 1 percent of the global cotton production. You may be...

Is Horseradish Nature’s Best Antibiotic?

Posted by on Apr 2, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Is Horseradish Nature’s Best Antibiotic?

By Dr. Mercola A wonderfully zesty condiment to add to prime rib or other cuts of grass fed beef, horseradish has an unmistakable heat that radiates not so much in your mouth as in your nose. While its exact origin isn’t certain, horseradish probably originated in Mediterranean, Europe and Asian regions, which alludes to its long, rich history. Greek mythology, for instance, considered horseradish to be worth its weight in gold. Cooks and healers continued making use of this root veggie in 15th century England, and centuries later the...

Surprising Discovery Reveals How Broccoli Fights Cancer

Posted by on Apr 2, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Surprising Discovery Reveals How Broccoli Fights Cancer

By Dr. Mercola Broccoli — and to an even greater degree broccoli sprouts — has gained a reputation as a potent cancer-fighter, and recent research sheds new light on the actual mechanics behind its chemoprotective abilities. One of the compounds in broccoli known to have anti-cancer activity is sulforaphane, a naturally occurring organic sulfur. Studies have shown sulforaphane supports normal cell function and division while causing apoptosis (programmed cell death) in colon,1 prostate,2 breast3 and tobacco-induced lung cancer4 cells, and...

Cumin Versus Black Cumin — What’s the Difference?

Posted by on Apr 2, 2017 in Dr. Mercola | Comments Off on Cumin Versus Black Cumin — What’s the Difference?

By Dr. Mercola Especially in the culinary world, things can go by names that don’t necessarily describe what they are. Rose hips are a good example. Other times, similar names are assigned to objects that are entirely different, making it hard to keep them straight. Such is the case with black cumin seed, which comes from a completely different plant than cumin and black cumin. To make it worse, cumin seeds and caraway seeds (Carum carvi) look almost identical. Both are tiny and elongated with ridges along the length and pointed on each...
