This oil soothes your joints whenever you apply and massage this oil on the joints whenever they ache.
3. Home Remedies for Joint Inflammation
When we talk about arthritis, we are also talking about inflammation. During inflammation, there is increased blood flow and the chemicals are released into the blood. This attracts the white blood cells to the infected area and can cause irritation of the joints and swelling of the joints. There are a number of options that can treat joint inflammation like medication, rest, exercise and surgery depending on the age, severity of the symptoms and medical history. However, there have been a number of home remedies for joint inflammation.

Drinking apple cider vinegar or applying apple cider vinegar topically can help in relieving joint inflammation. Mix 1 to 2 tablespoons of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar into 8 ounces of water. You need to drink this water at least 2 to 3 times a day. Apple cider vinegar is also effective when applied topically. Add 1 cup of apple cider vinegar in a bucket containing 4 cups of hot water. You can soak your foot in this bucket for 30 minutes. Apple cider vinegar helps to make our body alkaline and helps in soothing acute pain.
b. Ice Pack
Wrapping an ice pack around the affected joints can reduce the discomfort. During the joint inflammation, keep your affected joint elevated on a pillow and you can also prepare an ice pack and wrap the ice pack around the joints for 20 to 30 minutes at a time. This procedure can be done several times a day as it will help in reducing joint inflammation.
c. Ginger Root
The anti-inflammatory properties of ginger root add a brownie point as the home remedy for joint inflammation.

Introduction to Cellfood
Cellfood is a proprietary formula produced by NuScience Corporation in an FDA-compliant facility that is GMP certified by the Natural Products Association. Cellfood contains deuterium sulfate, ionic trace minerals, trace enzymes, and trace amino acids. It provides an unsurpassed oxygen and nutrient delivery system, and is absorbed quickly and efficiently by the body. Cellfood’s unique structure oxygenates and feeds the cells— cleaning and tuning up the body’s systems throughout the day. Cellfood is made from plant substances, and is yeast-free and gluten-free.
Cellfood is created by a proprietary process in which these nutrient-rich plant substances are held in a negatively-charged suspension of deuterium sulfate (an isotope of hydrogen). The result is a remarkable formulation which— by utilizing the same technology used decades ago to split the atom— actually ‘dissociates’ (splits) water molecules within the body by weakening the bonding electrons, and gives birth to cascades of vital, life-giving oxygen. This newly-born oxygen, combined with an array of vital nutrients, is carried throughout he body— cleaning, toning and building the cells and tissues hour after hour, day after day. Since our bodies are over two-thirds water, this oxygen and hydrogen source is virtually unlimited.
How does Cellfood work?
When you mix Cellfood with purified water or juice and ingest it, its proprietary water-splitting action begins the moment you take the first sip. This cascading time release of oxygen typically peaks within 8-12 hours, and then keeps working hour after hour. Cellfood releases oxygen whenever and wherever it’s needed— and if no longer needed, no more is released. And, its essential natural minerals, enzymes, amino acids and electrolytes are delivered simultaneously throughout the body on the deepest cellular level.
Cellfood is a miracle of electromagnetic design. Since Cellfood is colloidal and negatively charged— just like the blood and lymph fluid— there is a natural synchronicity between these fluids. Cellfood and its nutrients move through the cell walls easily, and its vital nutrients are absorbed and assimilated quickly and efficiently. And, Cellfood is a di-pole, di-base delivery system, delivering its nutrients to the cells and tissues under any conditions. (Di-pole means Cellfood is effective in any polarity range of the body; di-base means it’s effective in any pH range and will tend to normalize the body’s acid/base balance). Therefore, Cellfood is exceptional as an overall delivery system not only for its own nutrients, but also for any other nutrients or substances introduced into the body within the same 24 hour period. Notably, there is no known toxicity associated with Cellfood.
Importantly, Cellfood won’t create free radical damage. Free radicals— believed to be a primary cause of aging— are positively charged ions of oxygen. Since Cellfood’s released oxygen molecules are negatively charged, they seek out and attract these dangerous free radicals, joining with them to form stabilized oxygen.
- What is it?
CELLFOOD is the world’s #1 selling oxygen + nutrient supplement. For more than 45 years, NuScience Corporation has manufactured Everett Storey’s original CELLFOOD formula containing trace minerals, trace enzymes, and trace amino acids.
Cellfood – Free radical scavenger (powerful antioxidant)
Free radicals are atoms (or groups of atoms) that are missing an electron. These highly reactive molecules become even more dangerous in the human body when they react with and damage other important cellular components like DNA. Antioxidants are directly responsible for the prevention of cellular damage by neutralizing and eliminating free radicals. In a recent study, CELLFOOD was shown to decrease excess free radical activity by up to 27%.
Cellfood – Helps detoxify the body and balance pH
CELLFOOD’s colloidal and ionic formula has a negative charge (as measure by Zeta potential testing). This negatively charged solution (like blood and lymph) allows for the rapid absorption and assimilation of nutrients. This process enables the body to more efficiently eliminate toxins and balance pH.
Cellfood – Athletic performance enhancement
In addition to the numerous general health benefits, CELLFOOD has now become the supplement of choice for many professional athletes. In a study conducted at the University of Pretoria, CELLFOOD was shown to increase oxygen uptake (VO2 Max), increase ferretin (iron storage), and decrease lactic acid accumulation (muscular fatigue).
Cellfood – Ingredients
CELLFOOD is made from the finest substances. CELLFOOD does not contain any ingredients that are on the “list of banned substances” for professional and amateur athletic competitions and associations. CELLFOOD is non-addictive, non-invasive, and completely non-toxic when taken as directed.

Many doctors, especially functional medicine and naturopathic doctors, are finding success in combining conventional medical treatments with natural ways to support the body. One of these age-old remedies that has gained recent popularity is Black Seed Oil or Nigella Sativa.
What is Black Seed Oil?
Black Cumin Seed Oil (also often called Black Coriander Oil or simply Black Oil) comes from the Nigella Sativa plant that is native to Asia. Recent studies on this incredibly powerful seed oil show it may be helpful in combating super bugs like MRSA or h.pylori and in cancer patients.
The plant is technically part of the buttercup family and has small, black, crescent shaped seeds. Historical accounts of Black Seed use date back as far as the times of King Tut in Ancient Egypt. Cleopatra reportedly used black cumin seed oil for beautiful hair and skin and Hippocrates was fond of using it for digestive troubles.
There are now over 600 studies showing the effects of black cumin seed oil and there is promising research on the use of black cumin seed oil for dealing with autoimmune disease (which is why I’ve been experimenting with it). Its active compounds, crystalline nigellone and thymoquinone, are the most studied, but it also contains: myristic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid, palmitoleic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, arachidonic acid, proteins and vitamins B1, B2,B3, calcium, folate, iron, copper, zinc and phosphorous.
Uses & Benefits of Black Seed Oil
Studies have also shown that black seed oil can be useful for:
Asthma & Allergies
Multiple studies have found that black seed oil has anti-asthmatic effects and depending on the cause of asthma, it was sometimes more effective than conventional treatment. (1) The same properties make it beneficial for relieving allergies for many people.
Eczema and Psoriasis
Black seed oil is also used for skin problems like eczema and psoriasis. It helps sooth inflammation and improve the speed and which skin heals. (2)
Nigella Sativa seeds are carminative, meaning they aid in digestion and may decrease gas, bloating and stomach pain. Black seed oil is often sometimes used in remedies for intestinal parasites. In preliminary studies, it was also shown to inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells with no negative side effects. (3)
Candida and Fungus
Black seed oil was also shown to be helpful in battling candida and fungal infections in the digestive system and on the skin.
Other studies have shown that a compound in black seeds and oil, Thymoquinone, helps induce apoptosis (cell death) in leukemia cells (4) and other studies have shown this same effect in breast cancer cells (5), brain tumor cells (6), pancreatic cancer, cervical cancer, and even oral cancer cells and cavity forming bacteria (7). Black seed oil is also sometimes recommended as a natural protection against some of the danger from radiation and used in conjunction with conventional treatments.
MRSA and Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori)
A 2010 study found that black seed oil was effective for patients with h.pylori infections (without ulcers). Studies have also shown that Nigella Sativa was effective against MRSA. (10)
Nigella Sativa is unique it way of supporting the immune system. it contains antioxidants, beneficial acids and b-vitamins and supports the immune system, but acts different than herbs like elderberry or echinacea that require caution for those with autoimmune disease. Black seeds seem to balance the immune system- increasing immune function but not encouraging immune reactions against the body’s healthy tissue.
It has been used in alternative HIV protocols for years and it is often recommended on various autoimmune disease forums (with testimonials from those it has helped). I first found research on black seed oil when researching my own autoimmune thyroid disease.
Skin and Hair
It is also used topically in some cultures to naturally soften, strengthen and firm skin and help increase hair growth. Some studies even suggest that it may be a very useful remedy against scars and to prevent scar formation on wounds. (11)
Problems with Seed Oils
There can be problems with any vegetable or seed oil, including black cumin seed oil if it isn’t extracted, processed or packaged correctly. It can easily go rancid if any of these factors are not correct and it is also important that the oil is stored in a dark, glass bottle (preferably miron glass).
Black Cumin Seed Oil: What to Look For
Black cumin seed oil is the most absorbable and concentrated form, and from my research, the most effective way to consume black seeds. It is just important to make sure that it is from a quality source and preferably:
- Pure pressed without chemical extraction
- Contains no additives or diluting oils
- Protected from rancidity by high quality light and air protective glass
This is the one I use because it is the only one I’ve found that meets all of those criteria. I even called the company and interviewed their founder to make sure that the oil met my standards. Black cumin seed oil is simply a food product that contains some concentrated compounds that may be protective of health. Just as with any food, make sure that whatever brand you use is high quality and free from harmful additives. There are some other great options, though even places like Mountain Rose Herbs, where I get the majority of my natural ingredients, don’t use the highest quality glass to protect the oil from rancidity.
How I Use Black Seed Oil
I take a teaspoon of this oil straight a couple times a day. It works great to add a teaspoon or so to an oil cleansing blend, I’ve also experimented with adding it to lotions, shampoos and hair detox, and skin products with great results and I’ll be sharing those recipes soon!
The Bottom Line of Black Cumin Seed Oil
Black cumin seed oil is an amazing food that has been used for thousands of hears for its ability to support health naturally. It isn’t a panacea or a miracle drug, just a potent natural oil. It is considered safe for culinary use (or in similar amounts-no more than a few teaspoons a day).
Use common sense. Black seed oil is a food, but a nutritionally potent one. You wouldn’t drink a gallon of coconut oil or eat five pounds of liver in one sitting (I hope), so consume black seed oil as you would any food- in moderate and healthy amounts. Anyone with a medical condition or who is pregnant/nursing should check with a doctor before using this or any substance.

Our reality is carefully constructed by powerful corporate, political and special interest sources in order to covertly sway public opinion. Blatant lies are often televised regarding terrorism, food, war, health, etc. They are fashioned to sway public opinion and condition viewers to accept what have become destructive societal norms.
The practice of manipulating and controlling public opinion with distorted media messages has become so common that there is a whole industry formed around this. The entire role of this brainwashing industry is to figure out how to spin information to journalists, similar to the lobbying of government. It is never really clear just how much truth the journalists receive because the news industry has become complacent. The messages that it presents are shaped by corporate powers who often spend millions on advertising with the six conglomerates that own 90% of the media: General Electric (GE), News-Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, and CBS. Yet, these corporations function under many different brands, such as Fox, ABC, CNN, Comcast, Wall Street Journal, etc, giving people the perception of choice.
“As Tavistock’s researchers showed, it was important that the victims of mass brainwashing not be aware that their environment was being controlled; there should thus be a vast number of sources for information, whose messages could be varied slightly, so as to mask the sense of external control.” ~ Specialist of mass brainwashing, L. Wolfe
New Brainwashing Tactics Called Astroturf
With alternative media on the rise, the propaganda machine continues to expand. Below is a video of Sharyl Attkisson, investigative reporter with CBS, during which she explains how “astroturf,” or fake grassroots movements, are used to spin information not only to influence journalists but to sway public opinion.
“Astroturf is a perversion of grassroots. Astroturf is when political, corporate or other special interests disguise themselves and publish blogs, start facebook and twitter accounts, publish ads, letters to the editor, or simply post comments online, to try to fool you into thinking an independent or grassroots movement is speaking.” ~ Sharyl Attkisson, Investigative Reporter
How do you separate fact from fiction? Sharyl Attkisson finishes her talk with some insights on how to identify signs of propaganda and astroturf.
Here is a summary of astroturf tactics. Once you’re aware of them, you will notice just how popular they have truly become:
- Creating of Wikipedia pages, monitored by corporations.
- Creating a social media presence, including Facebook and Twitter accounts, run by paid professionals.
- Secretly funding non-profit organizations to create third-party support and web presence.
- Search engine optimizing web pages such as blogs and third-party sites that support a specific agenda.
- Financing industry research that is deceitfully presented as independent opinion.
- Funding experts working on unrelated projects, while in reality creating paid consultants.
These methods are used to give people the impression that there is widespread support for an agenda, when, in reality, one may not exist. Astroturf tactics are also used to discredit or criticize those that disagree with certain agendas, using stereotypical names such as conspiracy theorist or quack. When in fact when someone dares to reveal the truth or questions the ‘official’ story, it should spark a deeper curiosity and encourage further scrutiny of the information.
