    The power of garlic! I have always been fascinated with all benefits garlic provides, from a worst toothache to a helping in lowering blood pressure.
    With great respect to our original poster Vtech "Russian penicillin" I have heard it called. Two quick follow ons. 1) Baking soda for chronic kidney disease. I sent along the following two articles to someone in my family recently, I believe there has been a third study even more recently but didn't bother to read it.

    "Daily oral sodium bicarbonate preserves glomerular filtration rate by slowing its decline in early hypertensive nephropathy."
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20445497

    "Bicarbonate supplementation slows progression of CKD and improves nutritional status."
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19608703

    These two fairly large, randomized, controlled (one blinded from memory) studies found in a nutshell that 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda a day more than halved the rate of progression of chronic kidney disease. Two controlled, randomized studies is the FDA benchmark for drug approval. Of course these studies haven't changed medical practice much or at all but they are out there. I would suspect this treatment might have other possible benefits (as opposed to side effects) as well.

    So my second point is don't be afraid to just check out the medical literature, Pubmed portal, maybe restrict the search term to the Title of the article and away you go. Of course you have to take it with a grain or two of salt, there is a lot of financial bias. To give just one example, above we have two studies showing a 1/3 cent 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda gets rid of half of chronic kidney disease(CKD). CKD is a big money maker, billions per year, a "chronic disease", so the findings have done little so far. At the exact same time, you find one or two dozen studies looking at baking soda to prevent "contrast induced nephropathy" in CT scans, i.e. the contrast agent injected to improve the CT scan occasionally just fries the kidneys. Here there is a great financial incentive, a) if someone in good health goes in for a CT scan and comes out without kidneys that could be a liability problem for the hospital b) the less often this happens the more often a $500-$1,000 contrast enhanced CT scan can be ordered. In a sick sort of way it all makes sense. Of course there are also large areas that really aren't covered much to at all in the medical literature, colloidal silver, medicinal herbs, electromagnetic approaches come to mind. And there are agenda driven studies, but if you care to spend the time there is also a lot worthwhile to see as well.

    The concepts in the literature, more often than not, aren't all that complicated there is just a whole nother jargon involved, sort of how I suspect it might be with law. Anyways, while on this board I am sometimes the one learning medicine, if anyone who has been on this board for awhile would like help with a literature search on a specific topic I would be glad to try and assist,

            I know one natural crop that help prevent cancer, it is Alfalfa.
            Alfalfa is famous for its rich source of phytoestrogens which can fight cancer, especially breast cancer in women.
            There are many more great health benefits of this Southern Asia plant, you can take a look here for details https://wikihomenutrition.com/alfalfa-health-benefits/
            I hope my post helps

                        For quite a long time, individuals have swung to natural remedies for battle basic illnesses, for example, colds, annoy stomachs and toothaches. Furthermore, the pattern proceeds. About 4 out of 10 grown-ups have utilized some type of elective cure, as indicated by a 2007 report from the National Center for Health Statistics.
                        As engaging as the thought of common cures is for a few, in any case, not every single such cure is sheltered or compelling. Truth be told, some home grown and nutrient enhancements don't need to meet security gauges required by the U.S. Nourishment and Drug Administration (FDA). Since home grown enhancements contain plants, the FDA views them as nourishment. Therefore, the makers who create these items aren't required to perform clinical preliminaries or pursue the assembling and naming laws required for solution and over-the-counter medications. Likewise, a portion of these cures may collaborate with over-the-counter or physician endorsed meds. That is the reason specialists suggest conversing with a specialist before attempting a characteristic cure.
