Why Burdock Root Is in Many Famous Herbal Cancer Formulas

Why Burdock Root Is in Many Famous Herbal Cancer Formulas

May 16, 2017

First, I must confess that none of the burdock root in our Burdock Root Powder is from our garden in Napa.   (It comes from a small, Northern California organic farm.) For those of you who are gardeners, you are probably smiling to yourself, knowing full well why I decided not to convert the beautiful Napa garden into a burdock field.   Burdock is nothing if not tenacious. Once this perennial plant establishes, you will never get rid of it.   Yet, and this is a huge “yet” for us, burdock root is one of the most therapeutic foods that we know.

Vegetables' Chloroplast Excretes the 'Heavy' Water

May 09, 2017

Two studies published in major peer-reviewed medical journals within the past decade should be, in my opinion, major breakthroughs in the use of natural medicine in the treatment of chronic disease.   The first, published in The Journal of Cancer Therapy in 2011, showed that men with stage 4 prostate cancer who drank deuterium-depleted water had a mean survival time of 11.02 years as compared to historical norms of about 18 to 24 months.   The second study, published in the prestigious journal Medical Hypothesis in 2016, indicated that a ketogenic diet improves cellular energy generation because of metabolized fats’ ability to generate deuterium-depleted water in the tissues.

The Many Gifts of Our Maui-Grown Turmeric

The Many Gifts of Our Maui-Grown Turmeric

April 25, 2017

To introduce our Turmeric Powder, I want to share with you the first time I heard about the use of turmeric as a medicinal plant, which was in the early 1980s.  It was at that time, when I was first exposed to anthroposophical medicine and the work of Rudolf Steiner, that I learned about the medicines Steiner called the “dorons,” the group of medicines that includes cardiodoron, hepatodoron, choleodoron and others. “Doron” means “gift” to the heart, liver, gall bladder, etc.

The Low-Down on Oxalates

The Low-Down on Oxalates

March 29, 2017

Oxalates are a simple, naturally occurring compound found in many plant foods, particularly vegetables.   Interestingly, oxalates are also naturally produced in our bodies. Although the role of these endogenously (made within us) produced oxalates is as yet unclear, they might function as natural chelators, substances that ferry harmful substances, such as metals, out of our bodies.

Chaga Mushrooms: Nature's Blueprint for Cancer Prevention

December 29, 2016

Two of the things I probably loved the most as a teenager were sports and Russian novels.  My favorite novelist was Dostoyevsky, and at one point my sister claimed that I had morphed into the underground man.

Horseradish: A Nutritional and Medicinal Standout

Horseradish: A Nutritional and Medicinal Standout

December 06, 2016

My earliest memories of horseradish come from childhood and our annual Passover dinners.  I remember Passover as my favorite holiday, probably because of the feast that was the highlight of the holiday.  It was the only time of the year my entire family gathered in one place to celebrate with a special meal.

Chinese Wild Yam- Seeking the

Seeking the "Light" Plant

December 01, 2016

At a certain point every autumn, one experiences the light receding.  I notice it when I have to turn on the “headlights” on my bicycle on the ride home after work.  Sometimes I notice that the growth of the garden plants slows to a crawl; other years I just notice a tendency to want to sleep more and be less active.  In any case, the cause is very clear: the light is receding and the darkness is growing.

A Thanksgiving Gratitude: How the Heart Looks Out for Us

A Thanksgiving Gratitude: How the Heart Looks Out for Us

December 01, 2016

Perhaps the best part of writing a book is receiving letters and emails from people suggesting that I look into some aspect of the subject that they're excited about.  As many of you know, my heart book, Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, has been out for about three weeks, and the new ideas are rolling in.

From "Trash Heap" to Garden Treasure

October 25, 2016

One of the core missions of Dr. Cowan's Garden is to be responsible stewards of the soil, water and air. I want to introduce a strategy that we are using to create nutrient-dense soil, albeit in a small way, in hopes of inspiring others to experiment with this strategy on perhaps on a larger scale. The strategy is based on what in Europe and the permaculture community is called the Hugelkultur (“hill mound”), pioneered mainly by Sepp Holzer in Switzerland.

The Beauty and Power of the

The Beauty and Power of the "Vulgar" Plant

October 20, 2016

Swiss chard, otherwise known as “beta vulgaris cicla,” was first mentioned as a medicinal food by Aristotle in the 4th Century B.C.E.  The first thing that interested me about this phenomenally easy-to-grow vegetable was why such a beautiful plant is burdened with the name “beta vulgaris,” or “vulgar beet.”
