In episode 70 of HealingMatters, Jason Eagle talks about the top 10 Natural Health products used in America. Why are we using these products/Why do we need these products? What is missing? What should you take to be healthy? 1. Cod Liver Oil: Like it’s name states, Cod Liver Oil is made from the liver’s of Cod fish. But did you know there are many other superior fish that make superior fish oils? Fish Oil is a fat. It helps reduce inflammation. It also helps reduce joint pain and it’s good for your brain. Your body NEEDS oil/fat! Other Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) are DHA, EPA, GLA, CLA, and Omegas. 2. Glucosamine: Glucosamine is found in cartilage. It helps lubricate the joints and it aids in digestion. 3. Echinacea: Echinacea decreases infection and protects against cold. It’s also an antiviral. You’ll see it used in combination with Sambuca or Elderberry. Echinacea is also known as Purple Coneflower. Grown some in your garden! 4. Flaxseed Oil: Flax seed can be taken as an oil or as a seed. If you use it in the seed form, you are also getting the fiber. Fiber will help aid digestion but your brain, joints, and metabolism may also benefit from the oil. 5. Ginseng: There are three types of Ginseng. It’s good for your whole body that’s why the root looks like the body. It is an adaptogen and can help increase energy and stamina. 6. Combo Herbs: Combo herbs are just that, a mix of many different herbs in one capsule. They are normally blended to help specific problems like boosting the immune system, healthy lungs, and assisting digestion. 7. Ginkgo Biloba: Ginkgo Biloba is an edible nut from the oldest surviving tree species. The fruit is very smelly but the nut is like a delicious little jelly bean! It aids the brain, memory, and increases the blood flow. Ginkgo flavonoids cross the blood brain barrier. Therefore, it can help with concussions. It’s often combined with St. John’s Wort to decrease anxiety. 8. Chondroitin: Chondroitin is made from cartilage. It’s normally combined with Glucosamine. Chondroitin can be found in Bone Broth, menudo, homemade chicken soup. It’s great for the skin cells, nerves, cellular membrane, joints, cartilage, and wrinkles. 9. Garlic: Good old Garlic! It’s a blood thinner and fights infection. 10. CoQ10: Coenzyme Q10 can be found in many natural foods. It’s great for your heart and cardiovascular system. It increases Cellular Energy and helps rebuild the mitochondria so they can produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP) or ENERGY! CoQ10 helps support the Immune System because the Immune System never rests and needs the most energy to constantly fight infection. As you can see many of these products we buy are oils. We need Oils and Fats! We were misled with the “low fat” diet. Natural, Healthy Fats are GOOD; you need Fat. People are weak and in pain from chronic infection. Infections are correlated to fat deficiencies. Infections occur because the body doesn’t have the correct MINERALS. Jason’s #1 health tip is Minerals! Green drinks, green juices, Premier Research Labs Greens Mix is loaded with minerals. You can eat your Iodine in seaweed/sea vegetables. A mineral deficiency means we can’t produce Hydrochloric Acid (HCL). If we don’t have the proper HCL, we can’t properly digest our food AND we don’t kill the bacteria, parasites, etc. Low HCL may lead to infection, toxins, tiredness, and low energy. Low fats or fat deficiencies also may lead to low energy. When the body needs energy, it wants sugar because sugar is immediate energy. Give your kids a healthy start with plenty of Mineral, Oils, and Fats. Reduce the sugar intake and Increase the Fats. Sea Salt is good. Table salt is bad. Sea Salt is loaded with minerals. If you’re craving salt your body wants more minerals.
