Incredible plants that were used by Native Americans to cure illness

Wild ginger
Native American medicine is something that many people hold in high regard. Their traditional techniques and natural remedies are truly something to marvel at. Every Native American tribe has its own unique approach. The Cherokee, a tribe indigenous to the Southeastern United States, believed that the “Creator” gave them the gift of being able to understand and preserve medicinal herbs. A number of different herbs and plants can be used as medicine, as they once were.

Here are nine plants that the Cherokee tribe used to cure a variety of different symptoms:

1. Big Stretch (Wild Ginger)

Mild tea made from the wild ginger plant was believed to help stimulate the digestion process. The Cherokee believed it could also treat stomach problems, colic and even intestinal gas. Another Native American tribe, known as The Meskwaki, used pulverized wild ginger stems to treat ear infections.

2. Hummingbird Blossom (Buck Brush)

Hummingbird blossom was used to treat a wide variety of conditions. Traditionally, it was used as a diuretic to stimulate kidney function, but it was also used to treat inflamed tonsils or lymph nodes and other oral issues, as well as menstrual bleeding.

Modern day laboratory research has indicated that hummingbird blossom is great for treating lymphatic blockages and hypertension.

3. Wild Mint

Mint remains popular today as a tasty herbal tea that’s also packed with antioxidants. The Cherokee used mint to assist with digestion, and also ground the leaves up to create ointments or for use in cold compresses. Mint was also added to baths to help relieve itchy skin.

40 nuttige dingen met bakingsoda

Dat je heerlijke koekjes kunt bakken met baking soda, dat wist ik, maar dat het zo multifunctioneel in gebruik is wist ik zeker niet. Baking soda (natriumbicarbonaat) is een minerale stof die van nature voorkomt in gesteenten. Baking soda wordt ook wel natriumwaterstof carbonaat, zuiveringszout, maagzout, dubbel koolzure soda, baksoda, of E500 genoemd.

Baking soda is niet hetzelfde als gewone schoonmaaksoda (natriumcarbonaat), wat je in iedere supermarkt kan kopen. Schoonmaaksoda kan absoluut niet gebruikt worden om mee te bakken. Baking soda (natriumbicarbonaat) kan je kopen bij de natuurwinkel, apotheek, drogist, toko/ Aziatische supermarkten, hier online en ook in winkels zoals de Tuinen en Dille & Kamille. Zelf koop ik het in grote hoeveelheden online om geld te besparen en verpakkingsafval te minimaliseren.

Baking soda is niet geschikt voor aluminium, marmer of poreuze gesteenten en delicate stoffen zoals zijde.
Baking soda werd zo’n 150 jaar geleden in Amerika en Engeland al gebruikt voor het rijzen van deeg en beslag en ook werd het gebruikt in het huishouden. Het is een milieuvriendelijk alternatief voor chemische schoonmaakmiddelen en ook geweldig voor persoonlijke verzorging. Lees hieronder wat je allemaal met dit ene witte poedertje kan doen!

Basisinkomen proeven in Finland

Kunstenares Anne van Dalen heeft de afgelopen zes maanden een onvoorwaardelijk inkomen gehad van 1000 euro per maand. "Het is geweldig", vertelt ze lachend in het NOS Radio 1 Journaal. "Ik werk me het schompes en ben vrij om te maken wat ik wil."

Door middel van een crowdfundingproject is de kunstenares nog een half jaar verzekerd van een basisinkomen. Een onvoorwaardelijke financiële zekerheid met als hoofdgedachte: zonder de stress van geldgebrek en de administratieve rompslomp van uitkeringen worden mensen productiever en gelukkiger.
Proef in Finland

In Nederland willen grote gemeenten als Utrecht, Tilburg, Nijmegen, Wageningen en Groningen met het concept experimenteren. Ook in het buitenland is er interesse voor het basisinkomen. Zo krijgt in Finland een groep van 2000 werklozen twee jaar lang maandelijks 560 euro van de overheid.

"Van zo'n bedrag kun je niet leven in Finland", zegt correspondent Dirk Evers in het NOS Radio 1 Journaal. "Het dient als een prikkel om bijvoorbeeld sneller parttime werk of kleine baantjes aan te nemen." Iets wat werklozen in het Noord-Europese land weinig doen, omdat hun loon normaal gesproken wordt afgetrokken van hun uitkering.

Evers legt uit dat werklozen in Finland ook vaak tegen administratieve rompslomp aanlopen. "Dat doet veel werklozen hier de das om. Ze moeten voortdurend bewijzen dat ze beschikbaar zijn voor werk", zegt Evers. Vooral voor lager opgeleiden is het een groot probleem. Door de opkomst van robots zijn er steeds minder banen in de industrie.

Resist antibiotic-resistant superbugs with these six powerful and natural alternatives to antibiotics

For many people, antibiotics have become a standard routine when they get sick. Since the 1940s, these drugs have significantly reduced illness and death from bacterial infections. However, they are not the go-to fix for everything.

Conditions such as a sore throat or bronchitis are usually caused by a virus and cannot be treated with antibiotics. Nonetheless, the medical industry keeps prescribing these drugs to treat non-bacterial infections. As a result, bacteria adapt themselves to these drugs and become resistant. When this happens, a common, easily treatable disease may become an unstable killer. In fact, if we don't stop the overuse of antibiotics, bacteria may evolve to a point where even the last-resort treatments will fail.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 23,000 American people die each year as a direct result of these unstoppable infections.

Long before Alexander Fleming discovered antibiotics in 1927, our ancestors relied on medicinal plants and natural remedies to strengthen their immune systems and prevent or cure infections. Some of these natural practices are still in use today.

1. Turmeric

Turmeric, the bright yellow-orange colored spice that most of us know from Indian curries, has been well known and documented for its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It inhibits the growth of certain bacteria, parasites and fungi. It has successfully been used to fight Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria that causes ulcers and gastritis.

It can be taken as a supplement, drunk as tea or mixed with honey to create a skin-, wound- and infection-healing paste.

2. Garlic

Another excellent and versatile antibiotic is garlic, which has been shown to protect the body by killing harmful bacteria. Clinical tests suggest that garlic may be as potent as some of the commonly used antibiotics.

Europe’s Banking Crisis Leaves EU Scrambling to Avoid Repeat of 2008 Crash

Top financial institutions in Europe have hardly been more vulnerable to an economic tremor, a situation worsened by the collapse of the German credit market as Berlin suddenly stopped issuing new debt.

Europe’s top financial institutions are teetering on the edge of collapse as access to high quality debt products have created a liquidity freeze rendering many institutions near insolvent according to the European Union stress test that assesses each bank’s ability to withstand the shock of a global economic slowdown.

The Bank of England rushed in to reassure global markets that UK lenders remain in a strong position to weather global financial shocks, but the rest of Europe may be in for more than its fair share of turbulence.

The European Banking Authority (EBA), an EU institution, coordinated the test of 51 lenders from across the bloc expressed concern in the wake of the test noting that most of Europe’s banks are not properly situated to withstand a major market event.

25 signs that the global elites ship is about to sink

Make no mistake about it. The tide has turned on the global elite and there will be no going back. A new day is rising for humanity as those who have planned for complete control are now being exposed, cornered and investigated from many different angles. There is no need to buy into the fear-based propaganda the major media and even several alternative media outlets dispense. Very good things are happening and even better things are coming. Let’s take a look at some of the major stories that have occurred in the last 8 weeks alone. Piecing the puzzle together, we see that the jig is up and the events surrounding it are growing in size and speed.

1. 57 Nations approved as founding members of the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. Notable countries who signed on June 29th, 2015 include Russia, India, Iran, Switzerland, Germany, France, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Indonesia, the UK, Italy and Austria. Notables who did not join are the U.S. and Japan.

Russian Scientists Prove DNA Can Be Reprogrammed by Words and Frequencies

Illustration: ivingshambhala.
The human DNA is a biological internet and superior in many aspects to the artificial one. Russian scientific research directly or indirectly explains phenomena such as clairvoyance, intuition, spontaneous and remote acts of healing, self healing, affirmation techniques, unusual light / auras around people (namely spiritual masters), mind’s influence on weather patterns and much more. In addition, there is evidence for a whole new type of medicine in which DNA can be influenced and reprogrammed by words and frequencies without cutting out and replacing single genes.

Only 10% of our DNA is being used for building proteins. It is this subset of DNA that is of interest to western researchers and is being examined and categorized. The other 90% are considered 'junk DNA'. The Russian researchers, however, convinced that nature was not dumb, joined linguists and geneticists in a venture to explore those 90% of 'junk DNA'. Their results, findings and conclusions are simply revolutionary! 

According to them, our DNA is not only responsible for the construction of our body, but also serves as data storage and in communication. The Russian linguists found that the genetic code, especially in the apparently useless 90%, follows the same rules as all our human languages. To this end they compared the rules of syntax (the way in which words are put together to form phrases and sentences), semantics (the study of meaning in language forms) and the basic rules of grammar. They found that the alkalines of our DNA follow a regular grammar and do have set rules, just like our languages. So human languages did not appear coincidentally, but are a reflection of our inherent DNA.

The Russian biophysicist and molecular biologist, Pjotr Garjajev and his colleagues, also explored the vibrational behavior of the DNA. [For the sake of brevity I will give only a summary here. For further exploration, please refer to the appendix at the end of this article.] The bottom line was: “Living chromosomes function just like solitonic / holographic computers using the endogenous DNA laser radiation.” This means that they managed, for example, to modulate certain frequency patterns onto a laser ray and with it influenced the DNA frequency and thus the genetic information itself. Since the basic structure of DNA-alkaline pairs, and of language (as explained earlier), are of the same structure, no DNA decoding is necessary.

One can simply use words and sentences of the human language! This, too, was experimentally proven! Living DNA substance (in living tissue, not in vitro) will always react to language-modulated laser rays and even to radio waves, if the proper frequencies are being used.
