This is a 20 min. segment I taped at WBAI radio NYC for International Working Women’s Day 3/8/2017 featuring natural treatments for health and beauty. http://nuarchive.wbai.org/mp3/wbai_170308_120001garynull.mp3
A red dye in shellfish has many health benefits. Astaxanthin can be applied to the skin for protection against damaging ultraviolet rays and sunburn, explains WebMD. It also functions as a powerful antioxidant to prevent inflammation throughout the body by lowering inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein. Additionally, it has been used to prevent cancer and to treat Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, high cholesterol and stroke.
Medicinal mushrooms, root vegetables, make your own great soups. I make a bone broth made from stuff most people throw away — bones, shrimp shells, egg shells, – these make a gelatin that strengthens your bones and joints. Don’t want to cook? Make your own healthy jello.
Mondays Marie Griffiths and I discuss natural health and beauty options. This podcast includes foods for energy, digestion, and anti-cancer effects. Some people -especially smokers or if you have a dry cough or thick phlegm- need foods like oatmeal, pear and grapes to moisten and heal lungs. https://soundcloud.com/1051/mg-live-alternative-medicine-with-letha-hadady-2016-10-05
Foods and herbs to enhance breathing, energy and mood. Do you live in a polluted city or work or live with someone who smokes? Do you have acne or dry cough, night sweats or aging skin? Heal your lungs.
This podcast follows the bombings in Chelsea where I live. New York becomes a village when we are threatened. We all work together to bring about peace and justice. https://soundcloud.com/1051/mg-live-alternative-medicine-with-letha-hadady-2016-09-19?platform=hootsuite
How can you stay calm in a restless world? When thoughts fly in circles and nerves are on edge, take time to breathe. Remember cooling soothing places where you have been content. A cooling massage oil reduces rashes, angers, headaches and joint pains. Apply it before or after a bath to moisten skin and relax tensions. Herbs that curb “excess pitta” refresh the mind and enhance sleep and pleasant dreams. Here is your summer-heat mind/body treatment.
Each season has important health challenges. Spring may bring allergies and aches; summer a rash; rainy weather brings swollen joints and stiffness. Autumn brings colds, breathing issues and depression known as SAD seasonal affective disorder. Cleansing toxins reduces stress and aging while preventing seasonal health issues. Cleanse and rebuild health at the change of each season.
Protect your lungs with moistening, rejuvenating herbs including taro root. Taro is high fiber and helps protect against lung and oral cancers. Improves digestion.
We are creatures of light, air and sound; electric, visible and invisible. Our source is celestial air and fire grounded to earth. We absorb electrolytes from food and water and Spring bursts forth.
