March 31, 2017



Spring is here; a time of renewal and regeneration. Did you know that your body is in a constant state of renewal? That is its natural state. However, when one is ill, the regenerative processes of the body are overwhelmed by degenerative ones.

This is when natural therapies are called into play. With the proper foods, herbs, nutrients, and a healing intention the body will be brought back into balance.

To assist the regeneration of nerves there are many foods and herbs: turmeric, lion’s mane mushroom, apegenin (found in celery), blueberries, ginseng, natto, resveratrol (found in grapes and watermelon), royal jelly, ashwaganda, and organic coffee beans. For myelin sheath regeneration such things as music and falling in love stimulates neurogenesis.

The liver is regenerated by glycyrrhizin (a constituent of licorice), cavacrol (a compound in oregano), turmeric, Korean Ginseng, Rooibos tea and Vitamin E.

There are foods and herbs have been found to regenerate the insulin-producing beta cells which will correct type 1 diabetes. Gymenna sylvestre, black cumin, vitamin D, turmeric, arginine, avocado, berberine (found in goldenseal and barberry), bitter melon, chard, corn silk, stevia (please the green leaf only), and broccoli sprouts.

Vitamin C contributes electrons to resurrect the form and function of the hormones estradiol, progesterone, testosterone. This also can be used in tandem with hormone replacement therapy, or better yet as a stand alone therapy.

Neocardiogenic substances are able to stimulate the formation of cardiac progenitor cells which become healthy heart tissue. They include resveratrol, Siberian Ginseng (Eleuthero), and N-acetyl-cysteine.

Turmeric and resveratrol aid in the recovery from spinal cord injury.

All other organs of the body are continuously in the process of regenerating. The liver turns old red blood cells into new ones, every organ is regenerated; each at a different rate. The microtubuals within the cells regenerate every few minutes. Organs such as the liver may take three months, while teeth may take eight years to rebuild. Prior to the new studies, it was thought that the brain did not regenerate, yet today they have learned that it does .

Cultivating diets, lifestyles and attitudes conducive to bodily regeneration can interrupt this pathological circuit, and help us to attain the bodily freedom that is a precondition for the liberation of the human soul and spirit, as well.
