Dr. Edward F. Group – There are few things a sprig of thyme won’t make immensely better. This versatile herb blends well with a myriad of flavors and is packed full of health-promoting compounds, vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients. Thyme belongs to the genus Thymus which is part of the mint family and closely related to oregano — another powerful herb. Native to the Southern Mediterranean regions, this perennial herb is now grown around the world for its culinary and therapeutic uses. While this herb will liven up your cooking, thyme may also help expel harmful organisms from your body and support your mental and physical health.
What Is Thyme?
Thyme is an evergreen herb that blooms with small white, pink, and purple flowers. They hybridize easily and grow quickly in sunny areas with well-drained soil. Thanks to its ease of cultivation and growth, there are over 300 varieties of thyme in existence today. Each variety has unique flavors and applications for cooking, oils, medicines, or decoration. Common thyme (T. vulgaris) and lemon thyme (T. citriodorus) are used for cooking, while Spanish thyme (T. zygis) and creeping thyme (T. serpyllum) are popular in many herbal supplements.

Catherine Frompovich – The healthcare – or shall I call it “sickness care” – industries in the United States and, perhaps globally, apparently operate under several misleading practices of being there to help consumers get well.
Although that sounds altruistic, nothing probably is further from factual and monetary truths, according to many concerned individuals who recognize what amounts to “rip-offs” and are calling it out for what it is.
In view of the exorbitantly annual increases in healthcare insurance premiums and prescription drug plans, consumers and regulatory agencies must step back to reassess “what the hell is going on” with price increases that prevent those folks who take prescription drugs from either cutting back on them or not being able to afford them in the first place.
One of the prime areas of apparent deceitful healthcare practices to investigate is found in prescription pharmaceuticals where ‘mammoth monetizing’ goes on at various levels along the distribution/sales channels. One of the identified ‘culprits’ is “Pharmacy Benefit Managers” (PBMs), which basically amounts to what some call “abusive middlemen.” Continue reading “Rip-offs In Healthcare, Especially Prescription Drugs [w/ Videos]”
Peggy Sue – Emotions are totally normal, and it can be healthy to try and find some sort of release for them. We all need to let go sometimes and show the world how we’re feeling. However, when someone is emotionally unstable, they allow their emotions to constantly take over their life. They struggle to mediate their feelings to take control of a given situation, and when this happens, chaos ensues. When someone is emotionally unstable, they can’t find their way to the light at the end of the tunnel.
Sometimes it is really hard to control what we feel and we might start to think we’re emotionally unstable. However, there’s more to it than that. When someone is emotionally unstable, their imbalance effects their life constantly, not just on occasion. That’s why if someone is emotionally unstable, they need all the help they can get. But what happens when we are emotionally unstable and don’t have anyone to rely on? Continue reading “Warning Signs That Someone Is Emotionally Unstable”

Psychedelics are back in the science lab! After being banned for ~50 years research has started up again to determine if psychedelics can treat mental illness. The answer isn’t as simple as you might think.
Psychedelic drugs contain DMT and mescaline. These mind-altering substances became a drug of choice for the hippies, especially during the 1960s when many popular musicians and celebrities used the drug, as did their followers.
Before they were banned psychedelics demonstrated the ability to treat post-trauma conditions, mental health disorders, depression and other mental conditions. They were considered helpful and prescribed to treat over 1000 conditions between the 1950’s and 1970s. However, research during the 1970s indicated these substances also had deleterious results. Procedures and “cures” became increasingly controversial until research into psychedelic medicine was shut down in its entirety. Continue reading “Can psychedelics treat mental illnesses?”
