The Benefits of Chai – Mind Body Green August 2012

If I were stranded and could only choose one beverage, I would probably take chai. A powerful blend of tea, herbs and spices, chai has been cherished for centuries in India to preserve health and increase peace of mind. But, the more we learn about chai, the more benefits we find. In addition to improving digestion, chai enhances the immune system, fights inflammation and has antioxidant properties. It has also been suggested that chai has antibacterial and anti-cancer effects. Chai is made using different formulas, depending on the region where it is being consumed, but there are a number of standard ingredients: black tea, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, fennel, clove and black pepper. When analyzing chai’s health benefits, it’s important to examine each ingredient in turn. Though they act synergistically to increase each other’s benefits, the separate botanical components have powerful health benefits on their own.

The Threat of Radioactive Fallout: Dr. Isaac Eliaz Explains How to Protect Yourself from a Nuclear Event

SANTA ROSA, Calif., (March 18, 2011) -- As the world watches the nuclear tragedies unfold in Japan, fears are rising regarding the potential for radioactive fallout to travel to the United States, particularly the West Coast. Could this really happen and can we protect ourselves from a nuclear event? The general answer to both questions is yes, according to Medical Expert Dr. Isaac Eliaz. But there is much more you can do to protect yourself and your family from radiation exposure besides supplementing with potassium iodine.

Self-medicating with ongoing high doses of this supplement is strongly discouraged due to the health risks associated, especially for people with thyroid issues.
