Herbal Antibiotics

In general, our understanding of herbal antibiotics has been thin. By thin I mean we've been stuck in a paradigm of "take this for that" or "what's that plant good for" or even "the active constituent of Hpericum perfoliatum should be standardized in order for the plant to be effective in the treatment of mild depression (reductionist herbal schools)." Given the seriousness of the emerging bacterial diseases, we need to have a more comprehensive paradigm in place, one that takes into account the potential sophistication of herbal medicine as a very ancient art form of healing, one that uses both perceptual and intellectual awareness, as well as a focus on outcomes, in its expression.

After 30 years and 40,000 blood tests, Dr. Page discovered the biochemical cause of tooth decay and gum disease: a disturbance in the ratio of calcium to phosphorus in the blood.

Osteoarthritis

The name Osteoarthritis suggests it is inflammation of the bones and joints. Many doctors prefer to call degenerative joint disease because inflammation is not always present. More accurately, the decease is marked by the destruction of the articular cartilage in the joints. When healthy articular cartilage is present, it continuously releases lubricating fluid to ensure that joints glide slickly and smoothly against each other. When the cartilage dries, thins, and cracks, we get the scraping of osteoarthritis with loss of joint motion, swelling, and pain. What Causes Osteoarthritis? No one knows what initial event triggers the biochemical change that leads to osteoarthritis, but once arti
