I recently found this image and thought it such helpful info I had to share:
Herbs that lower blood sugar: Cinnamon, Clove, Rosemary, Oregano, Sage, Curry, Garlic, Ginger, Turmeric, Cayenne & Marjoram.
Cinnamon works by lowering insulin resistance. Researchers found that cinnamon cut cholesterol by about 18% and blood sugar levels by 24%.
Probably the most enjoyable of herbs that lower the blood sugar to take.
You can use the Cinnamon spice or you can use the essential oil.
A therapeutic grade essential oil has a nice kick to it and can grow on the taste buds making it very enjoyable to use several times a day.
I like to put 2 or 3 drop on a teabag or on loose leaf tea leaves, then make tea as usual and the oil emulsified into the tea.
As you build a tolerance to it you can drop 1 or 2 drops under the tongue
cloves are good for diabetics. A research shows that the compounds found in cloves may help keep blood sugar under control. As little as one teaspoon of the super-star spice is enough to reap benefits.Read More…
Thank you for your reply to my article “From Walking with a Walker to Walking 5 Miles“. I had so many replies and requests to write about this subject that I thought I had better not put it off too long.
When we think about anti-inflammatory foods we have to think about 2 aspects of an anti-inflammatory diet. Foods we can eat and the foods we need to avoid. Some foods irritate the digestive system and ultimately the joints and some foods calm the digestive system causing less body system irritations. We will look at several of these pieces.
The other piece of this is that it will look different for you than it will for me and different for me than someone else you know. There may be some family similarities but not always.
One thing to you might consider if you are really ready to figure out what foods are bothering you the most is to try a 30-day whole food re-set. I have done one and it is really eye-opening. I am not the best guide on one of these so I will refer you to a book if you are interested in doing that.Whole: The 30 Day Whole Foods Challenge
What I will do for you though is help you with some basics. There are actually groups of inflammatory foods. So you may be sensitive to one but not the other. That is why eating a clean diet for 3 weeks to 30 days is so helpful when beginning this journey.
Sugar is probably the most inflammatory of all the foods. We have a list of sugars and hidden names for sugars. Most sweeteners are really not safe either because they are highly processed foods. The only sweetener that I trust is Stevia. There are some good stevia choices now that don’t leave a bitter after taste. Let me know if that is something you are interested in.

We will look at why some meat is better than others for you and why some fats are better than others for you. What are these Omega fats, anyway? We will also look at why the fat ratio of meat and eggs can be affected by the animal’s feed and living conditions. We’ll also touch on the fact that, just because an animal was raised on organic feed it still may not have the nutrients needed to make their meat healthy.
To figure out what Omega fatty acids are we will touch on just the basics. Fats are compounds called Lipids. They are chemical compounds of Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen. Fatty acids are the refined fuel forms of fat and some cells, like the heart, prefer them over glucose (sugar). Fatty acids are named according to the number of carbons in their chain, for example: Omega 3, Omega 6. Because there are fewer carbons in an Omega 3’s chain has some to do with why they are better for you. Your HDL (good Cholesterol) comes from Omega 3’s.
Now we need to know this because there are certain Fatty Acids that are considered “Essential” meaning that we need to get them from the foods we eat. They are Linoleic, Linolenic and Arachidonic. But actually Linoleic is the only one that our body can not make so it is dependent on diet.Read More…

No, not THAT Recovery….recovery from athletic competition and general strenuous physical exercise.
Ask any competitive runner, “What is the one thing that keeps you from improving your times?” and they will tell you, “Recovery time.”
There you have it; the most common complaint from any athlete on the planet. People who train must have time for their muscles and tendons to mend and their aerobic systems to adapt. Precious time. They often take every form or vitamin and mineral ever devised by humans and yet, it still takes time…no matter what.
Here’s a true story about a man named Chuck Cash. He was formerly in the U. S. Army for 20 years, retired and begin working as a successful salesman at age 47. His favorite pastime was competitive running; 5K’s, 10K’s, full marathons and rapidly fading dreams of one day competing in Tri-Athlons and pure fantasies of being a ranked Iron Man.Read More…
Resveratrol is a phytoalexin, a class of compounds produced by many plants when they are infected by pathogens or physically harmed by cutting, crushing, or ultraviolet radiation.
Resveratrol has many health benefits but the simplest way to describe it as a supplement that nourishes the Mitochondria in the body. It seems to roll back the effects of aging on the cells.
Here are a few of the major things we covered in this video:
Sauerkraut is finely cut raw cabbage that has been fermented by the formation of natural lactic acid bacteria. It has a long shelf life and a distinctive sour flavor. During the fermentation

Jo’s Journey with her Grandson who had Severe Eczema
Atopic Dermatitis – is dry, itchy skin and rashes on the face, inside the elbows and behind the knees, and on the hands and feet. Scratching the skin can cause it to turn red, and to swell and itch even more.
Here is a real story with amazing results with just a few simple dietary suggestions as a result of a BioMeridian Scan.
Jo’s Grandson suffered from Eczema and had been to many doctors. The family was frustrated with no real good answers to how to best help this child. They went to Dermatologists and tried multiple kinds of creams and other remedies without good results.
Somewhere between the age of 1 and
His Primary Care Doctor and even a Dermatologist continued to prescribe Steroids and other creams –
I helped my daughter with home remedies and she eliminated milk and other foods.
At one point the Dr did a blood test to identify allergies but nothing healed his skin.
The raw patches on the back of his knees, legs and feet were so severe that he got a staph infection,
I turned to Evelyn…
Her scan results showed Gluten (which earlier I said we had eliminated foods but it was her total results that made the difference)
Sun Screen also showed as skin issue – which putting Sun Screen on his fair skin was always a fight and he would fuss and this we passed it off as just being difficult. We studied Gluten and became aware of everything that has Gluten – It was summer and we switched to a Zinc Sunscreen.
The Little Guy detoxed for about 30 days and then his skin became clear and that little 5-year-old was so happy! He took over his health even at his young age, being aware of what he ate, and would remind you he needed the Enzymes.
This was something we struggled with for over 3 years and so Grateful for Evelyn and how she helped us.
It was amazing to find out that the root of his skin problems came from within. That his digestive tract was yelling for help through his skin. His Eczema became so bad that he had sores on his legs. At one point the sores became infected with staph.
Often these things can be adrenal glands that are out of balance.
When your adrenal glands are out of balance often your hormones become out of balance.
There are a few herbs that help to support your adrenal glands and we wanted to share a few of those with you.
Hi, I’m Mary Howard RN
With Powerline Health bringing you another episode of Essentially YOURS. Where we try to come alongside you in your busy life and give you a few extra tools to help you in your day.
See our Article: Adrenal Fatigue and what you can do about it for more information.
Adrenal fatigue is a collection of signs and symptoms, that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress
By managing your stress, changing what you eat, when you eat and getting enough sleep you can do a bunch to help yourself.
The adrenal glands are small glands located on top of each kidney. They produce hormones that you can’t live without. Cortisol helps you respond to stress and has many other important functions. With adrenal gland disorders, your glands make too much or not enough hormones.
We all know they control your fight or flight but how does this help or hinder us in today’s fast pace high pace environment?
We are no longer being chased by tigers but to say we don’t have stress would be an understatement for most of us.
Managing stress is an important thing but not always 100% do-able.
The Adrenal Glands help the body keep the balance so that we can feel good and be on top of our game when we need to:
but what happens when we have too high a demands on our adrenal glands?
What if we work ourselves into a situation where we depend on the fight or flight body management of our adrenal glands all the time?
You guessed it these glands become “fatigued”

The BioMeridian Scan is a test done with a BioMeridian Machine. Using a stylist to touch meridian points on a hand and a foot. It measures the electrical currents of the body and sends your information back through a computer program. The results help tell you where your body is out of balance. Some systems may be
Hello and welcome to Powerline Health…
Meet Evelyn Hammon RN & Mary Howard RN
(If you prefer to read the content of this video we have it here for you)
This is my friend Evelyn Hammon, and she’s a registered nurse and has been working with people doing Bio-Meridian Scans for 18 years. As she became busier and busier, Evelyn couldn’t work all day doing scans and then mail product at night, it was too much! So we worked out a situation where I help people get the product they need and so I built the PowerlineHealth.com website and then you have the best of both worlds.
Mary is a registered nurse also, and we have loved working together for 10 years.
It is testing the electrical magnetic field of the body and it does it through what is known as acupuncture points or Meridian points. Hence the name of the equipment is a Bio Meridian scan.
This will measure all these points and show us where there are weak areas where there are inflamed areas and help us see how to rebalance those areas.
You actually don’t need to do anything specific. Just do what you normally do. If you normally have breakfast and have coffee, go ahead and have that before coming in. If you’re someone that does intermittent fasting and you don’t eat until noon and your appointment’s at nine, go ahead and do the same thing because we want to see how your body is acting in your everyday life and that will help us see if we need to alter anything. I see people here and run a computer scan on them and it gives us an idea of what their body needs.Read More…
If so you may be suffering from Adrenal Fatigue.
I have been very interested in Collagen lately – I started using it some time back and seem to be having some good results. My fingernails are stronger. I notice less soreness when I do activities that I don’t normally do. It seemed like something you all would like too so here is a bit of research I did that you all might find helpful too:
Have you suffered with the body changes of Menopause as I have? Including the heavy bleeding at times I have used Fibro-T for quite some time but didn’t feel like my body was healing. A relative of mine started going through the same difficulties and her practitioner recommended DIM. So what is it? Stay tuned and we’ll give you the details below. The basic is that it is from Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and all those good cabbage family vegetables that we should eat more of.Read More…

Over and over we are told the world is ending for modern medicine regarding the fight against germs and viruses of every form. We now know people are dying in hospitals from flesh-eating bacteria and the elderly are succumbing from upper respiratory infections by the hundreds of thousands.
What if all of this was simply due to patents and control of the marketplace, not medicine? It’s true. Let me explain.

A breakthrough nutritional study conducted at the Larner College of Medicine at the University of Vermont and published in PLoS ONE has found that just 248mg of magnesium per day leads to an astounding reversal of depression symptoms in study subjects.
“New clinical research results show magnesium is effective at addressing symptoms and is safer and easier on the wallet than prescription therapies,” reports Science Daily, echoing the reporting of Natural News from over a decade ago. Today, even mainstream science is now confirming that magnesium is a safe, affordable and effective treatment for depression.Read More…

Yup! And the Lymphatic system is extremely important in protecting our body from harmful elements in the environment.
The lymphatics don’t have a system that moves the fluid like the veins, the movement we get in the lymphatics system is moved by us. We have to walk, run, jump or otherwise actively stimulate our lymphatic system.
Lumps and bumps in the lymphatics can be things that your body is protecting you from.
Lymphatic massage or even something as simple as dry body brushing or dry cellulite brushing is a great way to stimulate the lymph nodes and help them to function normally.
Here is a YouTube video about Dry Skin Body Brushing
that you may find helpful.
As with any form of detox you are doing with your body, it is very important to drink lots of clean water when you are moving lymphatic fluids. Drinking water is the best way to rid your body of the toxins as you move them, to avoid the possibility of illnesses that can be caused as you move toxins around.
These Lymphatic Exfoliating brushes do a great job at stimulating your Lymphatic system.
Here is a dry brush kit that looks good:

I found this video -vlog very interesting by Dr Eric Berg DC.
It sounds like many of us old and young have some level of insulin resistance going on. As we get older and if we have poor diet habits this can turn into some pretty serious stuff – like obesity, type II diabetes and even can contribute to heart disease…
A 1st step product you might consider is Time Challenger Diabetic Response.
Changing our eating habits is a big must as well. Dr Eric Berg is a big proponent for fasting. I am not sure about that yet as many of us that would only be healthy if we were sure to eat every meal packed with lots of good nutrients. I feel pretty strongly that frequent small nutritious meals or 3 meals and some snacks like nuts, veges and fruits would still be a very healthy life style.
