Research shows that infrared light affects the human body in ways beneficial to health when administered under certain conditions. Understanding these conditions can help one decide if products such as infrared saunas or heating pads may be worth the investment.
The vast majority of energy in the universe isn’t electromagnetic. Leading scientific theories describe that nearly 95% of all energy in our universe might not be visible at all! Energies such as dark matter are thought to be the majority shareholders in the universal energy market.
The electromagnetic spectrum accounts for only a small fraction of that 5% of the energy that is visible. I’ve read estimates of less than 0.1% but haven’t confirmed to my own satisfaction. Within that tiny fraction, of a tiny fraction, there is an even tinier fraction of light that the human eye can perceive. This is called visible light. Below is a chart displaying the frequencies the average human is able to perceive…
Heavy metals are naturally-occurring metallic elements that have an atomic weight greater than or equal to a certain threshold. This threshold varies depending on the author and source, thus making the term “heavy metal” ambiguous.
In the context of Physics, “heavy” might be an attribute assigned based on atomic weight. In metallurgy, “heavy” might be more associated with an element’s density. In Biology, “heavy” might be a relative function towards another compound, such as water. So what does “heavy metal” actually mean in the context of your health?
Antiviral supplements and herbs can offer strong immune support during cold and flu season. During peak infection times, or during outbreaks of novel pathogens like the COVID-19 Coronavirus, I see a barrage of advertisers exaggerating the claims of their products.
Of the health professionals I’ve spoken with, the research I’ve read, and my personal experience I’ve found only a handful of such compounds worth consideration. That’s to say; I think most supplements advertised as “natural antivirals” are mostly a waste of money.
The compounds listed below all have some degree of clinical support for their role as antivirals. It’s important to realize these compounds do not have comparable levels of data to that of prescription antivirals. However, that’s not a reason to discount them. …
