If you grew up back in the days before Starbucks became a household name, your mother’s spice cabinet probably consisted of salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, oregano, basil, and maybe Accent.
Peppermint and ginger are two of my favorite healing herbs. I discovered peppermint when I was 10 years old and I have used it all my life for treating all my ailments, especially indigestion.
Many of us are familiar with the popular spice, turmeric. Aside from making dishes taste amazing, it is an excellent natural alternative for the treatment of back pain and inflammation.
A great deal of the pain associated with back problems is due to high levels of inflammation in the body. Most people turn to non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS) like ibuprofen or aspirin, however, regular use of these medications is associated with significant, very serious side effects (like a bleeding stomach).

You’ve been lied to for years. Decades, really.
Everywhere you turn, someone is telling you to watch your cholesterol, telling you that one form or another of cholesterol is either “good” or “bad,” and that if it gets too high, you are at serious risk for heart disease or even death.
Even worse, they are selling you drugs to lower your cholesterol… drugs that actually deplete your heart of the very nutrients it needs to run effectively.
