Coronavirus and Immune System Support

The Sunrise Nutrition and Wellness Center is staying quite busy during the coronavirus pandemic. Dr. John Harrington has dedicated each Tuesday to treating patients that have a cough, a sore throat or a fever with a unique healing technique. Therapeutic magnets are placed on neuro-lymphatic points located on the surface of the body to enable the immune system to more effectively identify hidden microbes. This procedure also stimulates lymphatic drainage allowing toxins to be removed more efficiently.

Dr. Harrington has been using this technique for over a year with great success. It is especially beneficial when combined with herbal remedies, a nutritional evaluation, and a wellness lifestyle. In addition, he uses cold laser on different acupuncture points, essential oils, and replenishes vitamins or minerals that are desperately needed for the immune system. Although not a specific treatment for COVID-19, Dr. Harrington understands how natural treatments can support the immune system and the overall health of the body. Being proactive about health is healthier physically, mentally and spiritually.

Today’s battle against the effects of aging buzzes with hype about acai, goji, noni and mangosteen. But what about the foods most people typically eat?

It turns out that many anti-aging foods can be found in everyday kitchens, and unlike some other solutions, they can keep us looking and feeling younger and improve our all-around health without breaking the budget.

Cleaning the house shouldn’t be a health hazard, yet studies have linked many popular cleaning products to asthma and other respiratory ills, developmental problems in young children and breast cancer. The nonprofit Environmental Working Group warns in its Guide to Healthy Cleaning that both toilet and oven cleaners and heavy-duty degreasers that contain hydrochloric acid, phosphoric acid, sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide or ethanolamine can cause skin burns, blindness and lung irritation.

Products containing ammonia or chlorine bleach produce dangerous fumes when accidentally combined. Even air fresheners and scented cleaning or laundry products can trigger allergies, and often contain suspected endocrine disruptors such as phthalates and synthetic musk.

EWG scientists have evaluated 2,500 cleaning products and posted the results online: Out of 507 all-purpose cleaners, only 59 earned an A for safety and 151 got an F. Other indicators of high eco-standards are a Green Seal or an EcoLogo certification symbol on the product’s container.

There are many good, safe and effective cleaning strategies that use natural ingredients. Chasing Green lists 23 ways to use baking soda in the kitchen, including cleaning grease stains, iron pots and baby bottles. For example, to clean both wooden and plastic cutting boards, use a paste made of one tablespoon each of baking soda, salt and warm water.

Vinegar, which is nontoxic and antibacterial, is another natural go-to cleaner. An equal mix of distilled white vinegar and water in a spray bottle can clean windows, stovetops, countertops and tile. The Spruce lists ways to use vinegar to clean everything from crayon stains to mold and mildew, and suggests adding a drop of essential oils for the smell.

Tree Hugger cautions not to discard old, toxic products down the drain or in the trash, where they’ll end up poisoning the water supply or landfill soil. Instead, keep an eye out for local toxic and electronic recycling events.

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has found contamination of U.S. drinking water with manmade “forever chemicals” to be much worse than estimated. Miami, Philadelphia and New Orleans have some of the highest levels. Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are resistant to breaking down in the environment and some have been linked to cancer, liver damage, low birth weight and other health problems. David Andrews, a senior scientist at EWG and co-author of the report, says, “It’s nearly impossible to avoid contaminated drinking water from these chemicals.” Sources include products like Teflon, Scotchguard and firefighting foam. Only one location in the country, Meridian, Mississippi, which has 700-foot-deep wells, had no detectable PFAS, while Seattle and Tuscaloosa, Alabama, had levels below 1 part per trillion, the limit EWG recommends. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has known since at least 2001 about the problem of PFAS in drinking water, but has so far failed to set an enforceable, nationwide legal limit.

Fresh evidence is emerging of a skin-gut axis that links type B ultraviolet (UVB) exposure to the microbiome, a finding that has implications for those suffering from autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. University of British Columbia researchers divided 21 healthy young women into two groups: Nine took vitamin D supplements during Vancouver’s long, dark winter, and 12 didn’t. After three months, only the non-supplement-takers tested as being deficient in vitamin D. Both groups were exposed to three, one-minute, full-body UVB light sessions; within a week, vitamin D levels increased 10% on average and the gut microbiota diversity of the low-D group rose to match that of the sufficient-D group. Along with other probiotic bacteria, Lachnospiraceae species, typically low in the guts of people with inflammatory diseases, increased with the UVB exposure.

Cardamom owes its healthfulness to the antioxidants in the volatile oils in its seeds, which boost immunity by fighting against reactive molecules called free radicals. An antispasmodic, cardamom can improve both digestion and respiration by controlling abnormal muscle contractions. It also keeps inflammation in check by reducing the production and activity of molecules transmitting signals for inflammation.

Haritaki stores all its goodness in its drupe-like fruits. A strong digestive and laxative, it hurries food down the stomach, stalls it in the intestine to remove excess water, and then stimulates strong contractions. At the same time, it protects the stomach lining from corrosive stomach acids. It helps maintain blood glucose levels by nudging the beta cells in the pancreas to produce more insulin. By supplying antioxidants like ellagic acid, it also helps repair brain cells.

The seeds of fennel are an oft-used digestive aid. They protect the stomach lining from corrosive acids and scavenge harmful cell-damaging molecules. Fennel also gives your internal antioxidant stores a refill, helping the liver fight free radicals during the detox process.

Musta supports digestion by helping protect the stomach lining from corrosive acids and enzymes and by fighting disease-causing E. coli bacteria. It also curbs inflammation by blocking certain chemicals that expand blood vessels, the travel route of the inflammatory molecules. It helps the liver soak up extra glucose. But despite the high-glucose environment, it doesn’t allow the liver to turn fatty acids into cholesterol, thus helping you maintain a steady cholesterol profile.

The black pepper-like fruits of vidanga (Embelia ribes) help your body better respond to leptin, the satiety hormone. The result is better portion control. Embelin in the herb also protects heart tissue from free radicals by supplying and activating antioxidants. By increasing the efficiency of a nerve-calming chemical called GABA, Vidanga can also make you feel more relaxed. Not just that, its antioxidants also protect the brain from damage by free radicals.

Have you tried cupping before?

Cupping therapy is an ancient practice revered for its many health benefits. It’s known to help reduce pain, promote relaxation, boost skin health, help treat respiratory issues and colds, and improve digestion. Cupping and acupuncture are similar because they both promote optimal “Qi” by drawing energy and blood flow to areas of the body that are experiencing inflammation, prone to low lymphatic circulation or experiencing poor blood flow. It’s a must if you’re experiencing joint pain, muscle stiffness, migraines or fatigue.

ZERO WASTE LIFESTYLE | Natural Awakenings Central New Jersey

In manufacturing, a zero waste policy means designing products so that all resources are used or reused. It’s a concept Bea Johnson, author of Zero Waste Home: The Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Life by Reducing Your Waste, embraced for her family a decade ago in Mill Valley, California. “My goal was to simplify our lives,” she says. “We found a zero waste lifestyle isn’t what we expected; it’s better. It’s good for the environment and for our family.”

Preliminary evidence shows that eleuthero may help reduce fatigue and increase endurance. In an animal study, supplementing with eleuthero lengthened the time mice spent performing a swim test and other endurance tests. In another study, mice didn’t show the normal behavioral alterations from sleep deprivations that researchers usually see.

Human studies show similar improvements in endurance. Scientists measured a decreased stress response in endurance athletes after supplementing with eleuthero. Research points to improved oxygen utilization as a mechanism behind improved endurance.Other measured enhancements include improved cardiovascular function and improved glycogen metabolism in men.

Meet our Founder - Sharon Bruckman

Healthy living entrepreneur Sharon Bruckman established Natural Awakenings magazine in 1994 in Naples, Florida in response to her local holistic health community's need for an effective way to share information and connect with people searching for alternative therapies. Two years later, an avid reader convinced her to launch a second edition in Sarasota, Florida. Its destiny was to become the prototype for an unprecedented franchise network (formed in 1999) of like-minded people who value what this magazine brings to their community. Today, franchise owners publish more than 80 local editions, with new magazines added each year. In each market 10,000s of free copies are circulated at hundreds of public distribution points.

"The wellness revolution I saw emerging years ago is now in full swing," says Bruckman. "It's propelled by the kind of people who read our magazines and website. Our job is to keep our finger on the pulse of cutting-edge advances and keep readers apprised of the best healthy-life choices available. We love what we do. We love to spread light. Our delight is in awakening one community at a time...naturally." says Bruckman.
