Ayurvedic Cold Remedy: Cinnamon- Ginger... 14 y
Several herbs can restore balance to Kapha-especially ginger but also cinnamon, licorice, basil, and cloves.
Ayurvedic Remedies for Cold
Ayurvedic medicine teaches that the common cold results from an imbalance of the Kapha and Vata dosha. You develop a cold when your body has an excess of kapha’s cool, moist characteristics, causing a stuffy or runny nose and lots of sneezing. And, excess vata energy reduces agni, or gastric fire, so you get the chills. Ginger can reduce excess kapha and restore agni, making it the best medicine for colds and flus. There are two main strategies to balance Kapha.

Cinnamon for Staph Infection 14 y
In tests at Weber University, Cinnamon oil has proven more effective than Ampicillin in inhibiting the growth of Staphylococcal infections and unlike conventional antibiotic drugs, essential oils tend to leave beneficial bacteria intact while killing disease producing bacteria (pathogens). Additionally, bacteria do not acquire resistance to the oils as they do with antibiotics. Today when so many illnesses and bacteria are becoming resistant to antibiotics, the therapeutic effects of essential oils and their immune-boosting abilities may be just what we need.
The use of essential oils for emotional health is also rising. Promoting relaxation, improving mental acuity, calming and soothing, essential oils are a healthy replacement for synthetic and chemically formulated pharmaceutical drugs. These pharmaceutical drugs can have negative side effects and lead to subsequent health complications. Pure, natural and without side effects, essential oils are the perfect de-stressors to our fast, paced, high stressed lifestyles.

Cinnamon for Candida 14 y
Preliminary results from test tube and animal studies suggest that cinnamon oil and cinnamon extract have antifungal, antibacterial, and antiparasitic properties.4–10 For example, cinnamon has been found to be active against Candida albicans, the fungus responsible for vaginal yeast infections and thrush (oral yeast infection), Helicobacter pylori (the bacteria that causes stomach ulcers), and even head lice. However, it's a long way from studies of this type to actual proof of effectiveness. Until cinnamon is tested in double-blind human trials, we can't conclude that it can successfully treat these or any other infections. (For why double-blind studies are so important, see "Why Does Complementary Therapies Rely on Double-blind Studies?")
Most Americans consider cinnamon a simple flavoring, but in traditional Chinese medicine, it’s one of the oldest remedies, prescribed for everything from diarrhea and chills to influenza and parasitic worms. Cinnamon comes from the bark of a small Southeast Asian evergreen tree and is available as an oil, extract, or dried powder. It’s closely related to cassia (C. cassia) and contains many of the same components, but the bark and oils from C. zeyleanicum have a better flavor.

The next drug in your medicine cabinet might come from the spice aisle of the grocery store. Although research is still preliminary, doctors and researchers are getting excited about the diabetes and cholesterol-fighting potential of cinnamon
Cinnamon probably ”can’t harm in small doses, it may help, and it’s not adding calories,” said Melinda Maryniuk, a senior dietician at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston.
A small study completed last year on the possible health benefits of cinnamon was ”very exciting and promising,” according to Dr. Andrew Greenberg, director of the obesity metabolism laboratory at Tufts University, who is so intrigued he has begun studying it himself.
The 40-day study, of 60 people in Pakistan with Type 2 diabetes, found that one gram a day of cinnamon -- one-fourth of a teaspoon twice daily -- si ... read more

Diabetes Cure: Cinnamon Drug & Other Food 14 y
THE CINNAMON DRUG
The USDA's Dr. Anderson discovered that various spices help stimulate insulin activity, which means the body can process sugar more efficiently and therefore needs less insulin. Dr. Anderson did some test-tube experiments in which he measured insulin activity in the presence of certain foods. Although most showed no effect, three spices and one herb triples insulin activity: cinnamon, cloves, turmeric and bay leaves. Cinnamon was the most potent.
Only a little cinnamon, such as the the small amounts sprinkled on toast, can stimulate insulin activity, he says. A dash of cinnamon on any number of appropiate foods may help keep blood sugar in check.
THE CINNAMON DRUG
Add spices to boost insulin activity. It may be more than our taste buds that inspire us to frequently use cinnamon and cloves to spice up sweet foods, such as pumpkin pie. Such spices actually have drug-like properties that help us handle the sugar in such sweets.
