Dr Oz: The Medicine Hunter Interview
Do you want to live longer, healthier, and happier? Well, in addition to trying Chris Kilham’s herbal cures like Tulsi and Reishi Mushrooms, here are the three simple steps that the Medicine Hunter says will help us to live a longer life!
Chris Kilham: Coffee Prevents Alzheimers & Parkinsons
1. Drink More Coffee – Coffee is rich in healthy compounds of all different types. WE know from decades of research that it significantly lowers the risk of colon and rectal cancers, it significantly lowers the risk of Parkinson’s Disease , it somewhat lowers the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, it helps to stabilize blood sugar, and it has benefits to the cardio vascular system. Dr. Oz pointed out that some folks, himself included, have difficulty with the caffeine. Kilham said about fifteen percent of people are intolerant to caffeine and you can still get the benefits from coffee by drinking decaf. He recommends two to three cups of coffee a day, or about 300 milligrams of caffeine a day.
Dr Oz: Red Onions vs Blood Thinners
2. Eat a red onion every day – As cheap and as common as they are they are the most unsung longevity food of all time. They lower blood lipids being vastly superior as blood thinners. Red onions contain quercetin and kaempferol which are two of the most beneficial antioxidant compounds on earth, according to Kilham. The list of health benefits goes on and on and the good news is that you can eat them either raw or cooked to get the benefits, but just eat them every day. Kilham does admit that red onions are his personal favorite, but eating any onion would provide with the same benefits, you’ll just cry more when you are chopping them.
Dr Oz: Curcumin Pills 500 mg – Turmeric Supplements
3. Take Turmeric – Tumeric is the yellow in curry powder and Dr Oz has spoken about how great it is for your health on past shows as well. In Asia people eat turmeric like we eat carrots or broccoli in very large amounts, but taking a supplement will provide a very significant anti-inflammatory benefit without side effects. The best way to take Turmeric is via a Curcumin supplement in a dose of 500 milligrams per day and if you are suffering from an injury causing pain you can actually take a little more in place of over the counter pain killer. Very specifically, Kilham says to look for BCM 95 or Meriva in the ingredients on the bottle when purchasing Curcumin, as well as Phospholipids. These will be well absorbed and it shows the company has done their research.
